My last two purchases from Forever 21 were mostly unsuccessful. The Twisted Wrap Top was perhaps the best of the bunch but I can’t help but feel there are better options out there. The Romantic Lace Midi Skirt that I was initially very excited about was just mediocre and the Dainty Crochet Lace Crop Top overpriced. The Daring Darling Moto Jacket is far from adequate unless you happened to be the exact size the design is fitted for.

The Go-To Sporty Jacket was, as other reviewers noted, awkward when zipped up and the material not as substantial as I expected (which gave it an easily wrinkled appearance).

I recently went to Madewell to test drive the Transport Tote and think it’s a purchase I will make at some point this year. For those of you who are also interested, I will keep my eyes peeled for discounts that will work on the bag (as it is currently excluded from most promotions).
