This was my first encounter with F-21--and I was not impressed. The store is too small for so much merch--it can be a real mess after the place gets stormed by mallrats and teeny boppers.\r
And then I went to the F21 at the Beverly Center and the rumors of the clothes being made in sweatshops were all but forgotten when I saw this F21 mecca. Its huge--you could really get lost in there.\r
But all in all, they have some good stuff for girls on a budget. Just make sure you try everything on b4 you buy since a lot of the stitching and fitting is poorly done. Good place to buy trendy clothes by the season or for use-abuse-then-lose accessories.
Pros: price, trendy clothes, acessories
Cons: sometimes the shirts are so thin/skanky you can see your belly button right thru them
