With gas prices at an all time high, I don’t know if I can afford to leave the city for the long weekend, let alone, buy more clothes that I don’t really need. But yet, there’s nothing that I find more comforting or thrilling than shopping, making a cheap impulse buy, and falling madly in love…until the next one comes along that is. With big box retailers taking over the downtown core, it’s easier than ever to scope out fresh-off-the-runway trends at guilt-free prices.
It was our ex-intern extraordinaire, Whitney, who first tipped us onto the forever21.com online store. Thanks Whitney – you’ve now got us hooked too! We couldn’t pick just one item to profile, so we settled on the Pleated Stripe Tunic (with a pair of gladiators, leggings, possibly a straw fedora…HAWT!) and Rhinestone Cuff Bracelet that’s guaranteed to give you the most bling for your buck. As an added bonus, Canadians receive free standard shipping on orders over $75, and 20% off on purchases over $50.
