When I was in the building, I thought that I had been here before. I had. Forever 21 took over the old Takashimaya store, which was a vision of Japanese beauty.
This Forever 21 is supposed to be a pop-up store with Forever 21 testing the waters since the rent on this strip of Manhattan land is the highest in the city. Notice the stores next to it - Bottega Veneta and Elizabeth Arden.
When you walk in, you are immediately taken to costume jewelry heaven.Here is a view from a higher floor.And, a view of Fifth Avenue through the store windows. Notice the lonely man waiting for his girl to finish shopping.After picking up something for my niece, the only bling I was able to buy on this Fifth Avenue shopping excursion was this ring.Not bad for $4.80.
I think it looks much more glamorous displayed in my Bohemian crystal ring holder I purchased on a trip to Prague.Where do you buy your costume jewelry?
