When my sister and I went shopping the other day, she suggested that we stop into Forever 21. I was very hesitant, but agreed to go in. I browsed around the store feeling, well, old. I am 30 now, which is far away from being 21 and my lifestyle and body has changed quite a bit since I was 21 so coming into the store I didn’t expect to find much that I would like or that would fit properly. Boy was I wrong! I found a denim/sweatshirt combo jacket that I fell in love with immediately and the best part? It fits like a glove! I had my eye on the same style jacket last year from a department store but this one was one-third of the price!
  
This particular jacket was in their contemporary section, which typically runs a half size larger than their regular clothing line does, hence the reason I was able to find something there that fit nicely! What I’ve learned: Don’t discount an old favorite just because you think you’ve grown out of discount shopping. Sometimes you may find a treasure that you didn’t even know you were searching for!
