Black, White, Other

Working across the street from a huge Forever21 (with a Faith21 section) has not been great for my wallet. I'm apologizing in advance because all of my outfits from now on will most likely include only items from that store.

I got this amazing striped blazer a week or two ago, and it's already become a wardrobe staple (I love the bow in the back)! Today I wore it with an old H&M burnout tee, my Faith21 velvet mini skirt, and the Forever21 Miu Miu "inspired" Mary Janes.

I miss you guys! I'll be live on the red carpet during the MTV 2010 VMA Pre-Show, which airs next Sunday at 8pm.

  67. Hey Gabi,
    Congrats first of all on winning the MTV contest and ending up here in fabulous NYC... I am a born-and-bred New York girl, so welcome!!

    Two things: one, is the Faith21 you're talking about here in the city??! (I think it must be...) I haven't discovered it yet, and internet searches aren't helpful at all, so if you could tell me where exactly that store is, I would be very grateful...

    Second, from one young, fat, & fabulous NYC girl to another, if you ever want to meet up and go out for drinks, I'd love to hang out. Just email me any time (if the MTV stuff ever settles down). jayfoh@gmail.com

    xo joy

  69. OMG I have the same blazer! I ordered it online bc there aren't any Faith21 sections in my Forever21. So sad. But I'm loving that they now decided to make shoes for bigger feet (I'm a size 12!) so that's exciting :)
    No more being sad that I can't get fab cheap shoes.

  78. I was recently In the states on holidays and I fell in love with and bought this jacket, but I accidentally left it behind in one of my hotels. After contacting them they swear that they never found it, so I am completely devastated as I was so excited to come home to Australia and wear my gorgeous jacket. I looked on their website to see if I could order another one, but they don't have it on their website. If there is anyone willing to help me out and pick one up for me and post it to me, I will pay you to do so! I'm so devastated, I will do anything!!!!
