Another Faith 21 review....


I posted this in response to another review post, but it's a couple of pages back....

so i went this morning and i can honestly say i was underwhelmed. you can see the distinct difference in the clothing; the faith line and the "regular" forever clothing looked completely different and imho, didn't look like it belonged in the same store. i don't see how they can say it's a plus size line considering i highly doubt this stuff will fit someone over a size 18. a manager came up to me and asked how i liked the line and i informed her that since it's so new, i won't pass judgement. i did suggest a broader variety in the clothing and more pants (all they had were leggings and i don't consider those pants, but that's a whole other rant). i did see a black pencil skirt that was cute and a maxi dress that i didn't bother with. i'm going to be fair and give them a few more months to crank out some cuter stuff. oh and i should add that i don't believe this was supposed to be a plus size line; they seem to be gearing towards the girls who can almost fit into their large, not a true plus size.

that being said, here's what i got: http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=FOREVER21&category%5Fname=faith%5Fmain&product%5Fid=2061934200&Page=1 looks better on me than the model ;-) i plan on wearing bright orange pumps and a black leather bomber jacket w/ it. it fits great and is more of a pencil dress (love!)

i also got a plain black scoopneck t-shirt that's not pictured on the site, but fits great and tunic that they claim is a dress.
i tried this on and it's NOT a dress; false advertisement. this thing is super short, but very cute and goes off the shoulder: http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=FOREVER21&category%5Fname=faith%5Fmain&product%5Fid=2062217871&Page=2

anyway, i'll go back in a couple of weeks and see what they have. i read joy's review and was happy to hear she found some belts in a 2x (the lakewood store did not offer belts...if they did, i didn't see them)
