Forever 21 Exclusive Design Collection

If you weren't "wowed" by Jason Wu for Target, don't worry, there are plenty of other ways to allocate your fashion dollars, including the new Forever 21 Exclusive Design Collection. I'm told the exclusive designs are made "in-house," meaning you won't find these cute and trendy styles anywhere else, like this sequin striped tee ($19.80) or this satiny palette top ($22.80). No designer names or knock-offs, just fun, affordable fashion.

UPDATE: I've decided to remove the product photos that Forever 21 sent me to avoid confusion because I can't find all the items online. To see all available styles, please visit

I was excited to see the collection, but wow, the only thing I would maybe ever buy were the blue polka dot shorts. Not really a fan yet!

I never thought of pairing a long skirt with a jean vest but I really like the look.

As much as people hate on Forever21 I actually really love it, I know that if I need something in a pinch I can go there.

Do you by any chance know when the looks from the pictures at the very top of this post will be out? I am OBSESSED with the yellow maxi dress, pink clutch, and red platforms!

Hi ladies, I reached out to Forever 21 and they've directed me to this link for all Exclusive Designs currently available:

I'd suggest we just keep checking back as new styles are released. Hope this helps!

It's so awesome to see high fashion looks in stores and websites with affordable prices. It may seem time consuming to look for jewelry deals or online shopping deals, but if you want the look, it's awesome that you can find it for a reasonable price.
