I remember the very first thing I bought from Fovever 21. It was this blue sleeveless top with a plaid like design in some polyester blend material that I bought to wear for my 7th grade birthday at the movies [Time stoppers, or stop watchers or something of the sort]
And while I frankly will not be pulling it out of the closet anytime soon w/o something much cuter layered on top, I must say that I have found some very chic things in the sales rack of F21.
And yes, F21 is cheap, but seriously, I guess that means I am as cheap as they get, because 85% of what I buy from there is on the sales rack..
In my trip yesterday some notable things I found were a yellow laced back cardigan
and a powder blue little house on the prairie-esque dress [For the record, I would like to note my obsession w/ Laura Ingalls novels in the 4th grade]
They combine subtle details and interesting twists on conventional design. And to boot, they were about $15 each which is essentially a steal compared to the other things in the store for that price.
Seeing things like these really get me excited about fashion again. They renew my dreams on being a boutique owner and designer. Simplicity and subtlety are highly overlooked and under appreciated adjectives in the fashion industry. One of these days I would like to bring that sense of simple and beautiful back.
Until then, I'll still be perusing the clothes rack to find little treasures like these.
