Shop With Me at Forever 21+

Shop With Me at Forever 21 Plus

I am testing out a new series I am calling “Shop With Me” where I take a video inside the fitting room to give you my initial thoughts on items I try on.  Today I am showing you a recent trip I took to Forever 21.  I had never purchased any of their clothing before so I finally went to a location where they had a plus size section in store.

After doing a bit of research for my upcoming Anthropologie Style Plus Size Clothing post for Fall 2015, I found that I was pulling several pieces from F21+.  It prompted me to go to this retailer to see some of these pieces first hand.

So I now invite you to watch my very first video here on Designing From My Closet and Shop With Me!

Frayed Two-Tone Top

Ripped Skinny Jeans in Indigo

Mesh Paneled Crochet Top (sold out online)

Crochet-Trimmed Tank

Marled Shawl Collar Cardigan in Heather Grey

Elephant Print Shirt

Skinny Jeans in Indigo

Tribal-Inspired Poncho

This being my first video, I see several things I need to do to improve how I make them and I also discovered I am apparently stuck on the term “super cute” now!  I guess my excitement lead to all my normally descriptive vocabulary terms to escape me.  Regardless, I enjoyed making the video and I hope that you liked watching it.

The items I purchased will be in upcoming outfit posts, so keep a look out for them!

Update: See how I styled the Elephant Print Shirt and the Tribal-Inspired Poncho.

I love to read your comments!



  1. I really enjoyed this! I love your try-on posts but doing it as a video is even more helpful.

    I have one floral dress from the Forever 21 plus size section that I got from Clothes Mentor, and that’s it, but I’ll have to do some more digging around after seeing this!

    1. Thank you so much Justine. I have been wanting to do this type of post for a while, but was not sure how it would work. I am so glad you enjoyed it!

      I have not heard of Clothes Mentor. What exactly is that?


  2. Excellent!Love that you decided to do a video.As Justine said,your outfit posts are great & i do enjoy them but the video is just that bit more helpful.Really loved the poncho & belt on you,looked really good.The elephant shirt is lovely too,i’d definitely wear both of those.I thought the lace top was pretty too.I have looked at F21 plus before online but i was hesitant as i am the same age as you & wasn’t sure if it would be ok so it was helpful to see them on you & hear your thoughts.Look forward to seeing your next video:)

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I have to say I loved everything I tried on which was a shock to me. Whenever that happens I have to have a big girl moment and make choices. I had even more pulled to try on and thankfully I ran out of time because I was meeting my sister, otherwise I really would have had a difficult decision!

      The name of the store really throws me off because I see it as a very young woman’s shop, but I am so glad I ventured out and tried it out.

      And thank you for your feedback on the video. I will be doing these and possibly others in the future.
