I had mixed feelings when I found out the original Saks was closing downtown. I was sad, but knew there were better (cheaper!) times on the horizon. Forever 21 brings a lot to the table. I love being able to drop in and pick an affordable top or sundress for the weekend. The quality isn't always the best, but for trendy items that you may only wear a few times, you can't beat it!
Some of my Forever 21 items from the archives, circa 2005. Please excuse my over-highlighted hair.

Summer of Graduation, Chicago
Apparently, large belts and big necklaces were in back then? I must have been spending lots of time poolside. I haven't seen a tan like that in years. Ah, to be young again....
