After a too short holiday break from work (I really should have taken Monday off because it looks as though the whole city did) I got to my desk to find a half rotten banana and was stuck eating my nasty untoasted Subway breakfast. Yes there is a back story to this...
On the last day of work before holidays as I was packing up I offered my fresh Banana to my co-worker being the nice person that I am because I know he enjoys them. I guess in the end he didn't want it and put it back on my desk after I left, so I had a nice smell when I got in today. Thanks a lot dude, you could have just thrown it out. On top of that, how could Subway forget to toast my sub? Shouldn't it come naturally unless you specifically ask? I was annoyed because I only treat myself once a week, and I wanted it done right. I wish the girl that usually served me had been in, I'm assuming she was still enjoying her Christmas vacation.
After a less then perfect start to my day I decided to go to Forever 21.com and browse to relax a little. It's rare that I buy anything online unless it involves eBay or a purchase from someone I know online. I was craving some Forever21 as it had been nearly a year since I'd been there (The closest one is Toronto) I thought I would have gotten the chance to go when I was in Boston, but sadly there are no stores in central Boston.
So I browsed the entire site and picked out all my items, checked out and registered myself on the site only to find out I needed re-direct myself to Forever21 Canada. Okay, fair enough, but annoying that I would have to browse for all my items again. Imagine my disappointment when I found out how utterly CRAP forever21 Canada website is and how I could not find anything that I originally wanted. I feel like the stuff they put on the Canada site is the stuff no one else wanted, all the left overs they are trying to sell us at full price. Nothing on that site is worth putting in an online order especially when you see the goodies on the American site. It's bad enough there are only 3 stores in Canada, but do we have to get jipped online? If I was in another country would I have been able to buy the stuff I wanted?
So for wasting my time this morning, it's war!
F21 = COUNTERFEIT to the max, yeah I know TELL US SOMETHING WE DON'T ALREADY KNOW! But anyway, Pretty much ever designer has waged a war against them and I can see why. The site is constantly changing, but here are a few things I could pick up quickly by eye.
Oh I forgot to say that I'm not saying people shouldn't shop there because I centainly will when givin the chance. Most of us don't have thousands of dollars to spend on the real thing, but we shouldn't live in denial also.
They've copied many of Diane Von Furstenbergs dresses. It's one thing to imitate, but to make it identical?
