Poll: How Much Cash Do You Drop Per Visit to Forever 21?

Usually less than a hundred and I mostly go on the sale rack. lol

As much as I like F21 for the most latest trend the quality of the products pull me to invest on something of a higher quality.

Such a good question, BB! I've come to realize that although the items at Forever 21 are cheap, I usually end up spending $60+ per trip. I get lots of great stuff, but it makes me wonder...would I be better off spending that money at a more expensive store to get higher quality items?

Regardless, I think I'll always be a F21 junkie, especially for accessories.

I seem to be in the minority. I spend less than $10 on each visit. I do make it a point to go to the store, but I don't buy unless I absolutely love the item. I tend to be pretty thrifty with my money anyway, no matter what store it is.

I only go for the accessories so don't spend more than $20 a visit.

It would be a good idea to add a second poll question: On average how many items do you buy per visit at Forever 21? This would give a better overall picture, perhaps.

I usually go when I'm looking for a specific item that I've seen online. Normally I'll get 1 or 2 items. I try to stay in the $30 range and my other items are more expensive better quality items.

Adding to the price range I chose, I always go to Forever21 for their dresses. Indulge moment every time!

I put between $30-60...wayy too much sometimes! Those inexpensive clothes sure add up fast.

Oops, I meant between $30-$50.

I think it's hilarious that the same woman who scoffs at spending $100 on an organic cotton top will spend 3 times that amount of polyester crap from this fashion eye sore. You're just feeding into mass consumption!

I used to spend around $100 per visit. Now that they've changed their return policy, I spend much less, probably around $30-40. The funny this is, I rarely returned anything anyway! But I resent being told I can't, so I will only purchase things that I'm 150% sure about. F21's loss....

I don't go to the mall very often, but the last few times I went to F21, I spent a little bit over $100.

Also, I've always heard people complain about the quality of F21's clothes... Now, it's obvious the quality isn't that great, but I've never had anything fall apart or had holes in anything! No loose threads either. So either I'm lucky, or I have awesome laundry skills. :-P
