I am posting this warning before these posts in the future because I am really annoying. OK, I love a great deal as much as the next girl but please think of at least five occasions to which you can wear this item. I have too many one-wear or no-wear pieces in my closet and while they were had at excellent prices, it’s not worth it. Think about it, if you buy 30 cheap pieces @ $10 a piece from F21 every month, in a year you have spent $3600 on some cheap clothes that you’ve worn only a handful of times. If you invest that money with a 5% annual return rate, in 20 years you’ll have $9,551.87. I know we have to account for inflation, but can you imagine spending almost 10 grand a year at Forever 21?!
I don’t know if this is common knowledge but I noticed that a few items on Forever 21’s New Arrivals page will be marked down some 75% (different things every day). I am assuming it’s not a huge deal and that I am only discovering it now because I don’t visit Forever 21 very often.
I didn’t get any of these because I very recently placed an order (which I am beating myself up about), but I was definitely tempted. Here are four things I would’ve gotten but didn’t because truthfully, no one needs to order from F21 every other week.
Pinstripe Woven Shorts – was $16.99, now $4.99
Chambray Woven Skirt – was $22.80, now $6.99
Matelot Woven Shorts – was $18.99, now $4.99
Five Button Jacket – was $37.80, now $12.99
The only thing from my order that is still on the website is this Tiered Scallop Edge Skirt.
