F21 Finds From San Francisco

I did more window shopping than actual shopping while in San Francisco because 1) I've got some big purchases and another trip coming up before the year's end, and 2) I was too tired to do any serious shopping. Despite these limitations, I knew I just had to pay a visit to the giant Forever 21 on Powell Street. The store fulfilled all my fast fashion cravings and then some as I browsed to my heart's content. I'm modelling the pieces I got alongside stuff from my own wardrobe; the F21 purchases are in bold type. Enjoy!

This red top will look cute with denim skirts and jeans.


I love, love, love this new tie-neck red plaid blouse! It's going to be so versatile as I head into autumn. Here I've worn it with a studded belt (Buffalo), black-and-white sweater skirt (Urban Outfitters), leggings (another new F21 acquisition), and black booties (DKNY via Solestruck.com).


A new cocktail ring to add to my growing collection for less than $5? Yes, please!


This sweet charcoal bubble hem dress just screams Blair Waldorf, especially with the two oversized bows at the back. Not bad for $29.


These heels are new but not from F21; I ordered them from the Urban Outfitters website and had them shipped to my friend Artem so I wouldn't have to pay extra for shipping. Picking them up from the post office and trying them on was one of the highlights of my Saturday in San Fran.


I loved this rose-trimmed top so much I bought it in two different colours, ivory and taupe. Because the fit is rather snug, I think it'll look especially good tucked into high-waisted skirts and bottoms. Here I'm wearing it with my CiCi skirt, Seychelles heels, and Filou acorn necklace.


I love the kitsch factor of this short-sleeved cardigan, which looks especially good with the new leggings and Seychelles heels.

  1. I love the blouse! What a great find. I miss Forever 21! I spend a fortune there whenever I'm in America.

  2. Wow you did end up buying quite a few things, but I love them all! My favorites are definitely the bubble dress and the plaid blouse, but all items are pretty much versatile and adorable. I've always had a soft spot for F21 jewelry as well. A good thing (and sometimes bad thing) they're not in Europe, or I'd probably have one hell of a collection by now ;-)

  7. Great finds - I LOVE that huge F21 store, plus the huge UO store in San Fran as well. That last cardigan is adorable. Wish I wasn't on a shopping ban!

    PS when the hell is F21 opening up in Metrotown?

  10. What fantastic purchases! Isn't F21 the best? Can you not order from the website at home? I usually don't have the patience to shop at the actual store because the ones near me are so chaotic. I love that dress on you and those UO sandals are perfect.

  11. Sal, it does take a bit of patience, especially the long dressing room lineups. The number of dressing rooms seems mathematically disproportionate to the size of the store and the heaps of stuff the many shoppers want to try on.

    Wanderlusting, I don't know but I can't wait until it finally does open!

    AsianCajuns, there is a Canadian F21 website but the selection isn't as extensive as the American one, and I like to see the clothes up-close and in-person anyway. :)

  23. Gahhh I love Forever21! Virtually all of my favorite dresses are from that store. I've noticed that the Canadian website has been MUCH better lately in terms of selection. I've been itching to whip out the credit card.
