Forever 21 at Work

{I love them all, but if I just had to choose looks 1, 2, and 7 are my top three!  What about you, loves?}

During my days as a buyer, I was lucky enough to work with two of my best girlfriends.  Since we bought for Juniors, our "competitive shopping" trips often landed us, and with a quickness, at Forever 21.  We would quickly take notes on the information we set out to gather (assortments, signage, visuals, pricing, trends, blah, blah, blah) before inevitably finding ourselves in side by side dressing rooms with loads of clothes, twisting and turning in front of mirrors, and casting our votes on each others' ensembles. 

O.M.G. That is ADORE!  You HAVE to get that.  Uh-huh, so nesss right now!!! 

Whether we were working at Forever 21 (yes, competitive shopping with a quick sidetrack counts!!) or wearing Forever 21 to work, it was (and still is) definitely a store that fit our budgets and fed our fabulous fashion cravings.  Forev's Fall 2010 lookbook does both.  Its perfectly priced pieces and on-trend offerings will have you looking fabulous for Fall and fashionable, yet professional for work.  I imagine if we were all still together in our tiny gray cubicle, we'd still find time to oooh, ahh, and oh my gahh over Forev's latest.

What are you wearing at work today?  Happy Monday, loves!

I'm so short and look stunted in long skirts :( I do love them all and wish I could wear them all!

I love this store and the lookbook for work is fabulous (especially loving 2 &3). I get most of my work clothes at J Crew and Banana Republic, but I try to keep it really conservative. However, some of these looks would totally work! Thanks for the info!

#1 and the 2nd to the last outfit for me! I like well put-together looks but side track to crazy sometimes. Haha

Oh my gosh, I know! I totally need people to gush to about clothes and the prettiest new things! Unfortunately, my friends are too "medical" and most cant stand spending their cash on frilly things. Lucky you for living and breathing in the fashion industry!

Hi Roxy! I love 1, 2 and 6 the best! Who doesn't love Forever21? I'm gonna be 30 this year and sometimes, I do feel a little ridiculous standing alongside 12 year olds in line for the dressing room there and I wonder at what point and at what age, I'll stop shopping there. I love it for those uber trendy pieces that aren't worth splurging for since they will be out of style by the time you take it home. :)

And I wrote you back on my blog but Ah!! So jealous of the people on Oprah yesterday. No fair!!
