I know I sound a bit biased when I say this, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE FOREVER 21. It's been my most--frequented shopping haunt ever since I discovered stylish, fashion-forward pieces that come in plus-sizes and in a reasonable price range. For someone with my size and height who has been forever "rejected" my local straight-sized shops for being too big, too fat (You don't want to know how many X's there were before the L in the tags), too tall (It was so hard to find pants from local brands that reached beyond my ankles) and just too much of everything, finding a haven of clothes that fit just right is like being asked by the popular group to have you sit with them during lunch. You feel accepted. For once, you also belong.
So, thank you Forever 21 for having a Forever 21 Plus and being a forerunner of plus size fashion. That Plus + allowed me and countless other girls to finally shop and strut in confidence.
