Forever 21 Mod Cropped Sweater

I pulled a few things from the racks and headed for the fitting room while making a return at Forever 21 several weeks ago and wanted to share my thoughts with you.

The Street-Chic Wool Coat was really good quality but sadly runs about a size big.

I thought the rusty orange shade of this Edgy Faux Leather Skater Skirt was quite pretty from afar but I am unsure about its versatility. The length was appropriate for a shorter girl but I can see it being…bold…on taller people. The material was adequate and did not have the plastic-y sheen that most faux leather skirts have.

And two items from a recent order. Loved the Luxe Sheath Dress but the fit was lacking on me. The print is really the only star of the show; the material and cut were merely mediocre.

Also wanted to like this Striped French Terry Sweatshirt (sold out online; product code #: 2020642282 032) but it was just ok in person (I realize I am being very picky). The material and fit are both adequate, even above par for Forever 21.
