Forever 21.

Last week I was wearing this necklace with a brown T-Shirt, rolled up jeans, and flip flops, while I was out shopping alone at the mall.

Four people told me how much they liked my necklace (which happens occasionally when I wear it, but on that day, it had some magic electric vibe or something) and I facebook status-ed about it. 

1.  My hair stylist.  But she's somewhat obligated to praise me.
2.  Two different girls who work at the Gap.  They may also just be grooming me for a purchase.  Or not. They were sweet.
3.  This sweet old woman who checked me out at HyVee Wine and Spirits- and she did not card me, thankyouverymuch.  First time ever!!!  I really am getting old!

Someone wanted me to show a picture.

There it is. 

It's just simple, made of plastic.  But I really like it.

Jim also took this very flattering close up detail shot... You get the idea.

$2.80, full price.

This is why I love Forever 21 and H&M.  Grace and I spend a solid hour at Forever 21 last month.  She got some super cute stuff!

You find super affordable, trendy things you love, but because they're trendy, you don't want to spend a ton on them.  A cute bright scarf or some awesome huge earrings you may only wear when you're feelin' it every 8 weeks or so, but it was only $4, so it's a fun way to add variety to your wardrobe, etc.  And the accessories in general are super fun- you want to buy quality shirts, etc, when you want them to last, but, earrings?  They can be less-quality, and very inexpensive, and be just as long-lasting.

Okay, I must live in a cave.... but where are Forever 21 and H&M located? ~B

there is a Forever 21 in the cities, and in Chicago.

I'm not sure if there's an H&M in MSP, but there is one in Chicago too.

In short, not in Sioux Falls :) Maybe Omaha? But we never go there.
