Forever 21 on Fifth Avenue

After admiring all of the bling in the store windows on Fifth Avenue, my niece and I went shopping at the recently opened, six-story Forever 21.Yes. Six stories.

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?

A few years back when I was a much smaller size. I shopped at Forever 21 for some of their more conservative clothes...and you can find them...they have a great selection. And the jewelry is out of this world if you just want a little bling. My daughters love this store. Wow, this one is huge!

Oh my. Good thing my daughter doesn't know about this store or we would have to make a trip to NYC. The local Forever 21 gets enough of her money as it is.

I love Forever 21 and would have to just sleep in this store. Love your ring! The other place for fun costume jewelry I fell in love with is Charming Charlie. We don't have one where I live but when I go visit my mom.....look out.

F21 is definately my go-to! I rarely shop for clothes here because the store completely overwhelms me, but I could spend hours looking at their accesories!

Playing catchup again - that store overwhelms me! I thought the one in Austin was big! Love the ring - I get my costume stuff at Kohl's. Adore the garland - I actually think I could do that. And sending a belated hug for St. Joseph's Day...

SIX STORIES!! Wow!! I love the ring your picked up and that crystal ring holder is stunning!! I wish I wore more jewelry but I do love big chunky rings so I have a small collections of those. :)

LOVE! Especially that ring. I just pilfered through the clearance bins at Ann Taylor. Their jewelry sale bins are worth digging through right now at %40 off the clearance price. You know, if you, like me, need another piece of costume jewelry, like you "need" a new lipstick/gloss.

WOW! Talk about jewelry heaven... F21 is one of my favorite stores. The largest I've visited was two stories, and I thought that was big! I'd most likely pass out upon seeing one with six stories, lol. I truly hope they keep this open - I plan on moving to Manhattan (from CA) as soon as I possibly can :)
