OK, so what do I like at F21? Accessories! They are inexpensive, on trend, and all contained in their own little area. Usually there is a table or two with accessories on or around it. I just make a beeline for the table and ignore the rest. I don't care for the faux leather bags, but the faux leather belts are just fine, as are the scarves, necklaces and bracelets. I don't wear regular sunglasses (mine are Rx) but they have those too.
Here are some of my treasures:
On the left is a multi colored scarf. It has the perfect amount of volume and streaks of my major wardrobe colors against a neutral background that contains brown and black.
Next is a knock off of the Anthropologie Stormy Seas necklace. Yes, the charms are plastic but you have to get really close to tell. Plus the small beads are silver; Anthro's are gold. I usually prefer silver when it's available.
Third is a long multi chain necklace in silver for when I need to add a little rocker to my outfit.
Fourth is a gold necklace in turquoise. I love turquoise, I didn't have a long turquoise necklace and for $5.88 I can stand gold.
Here is the same necklace in silvertone with white beads. Old Navy shirt.
All of these items combined set me back less than $30. They aren't going to last forever, but with gentle care and a ziplock bag (to prevent tarnishing) they are holding up just fine.
So next time you're at the mall, don't walk past F21!
