Two mall clothing stores, both shilling inexpensive, trendy juniors’ clothes. Which do you like better, Lovelies: Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe?
I liked Charlotte Russe somewhat better.
Charlotte Russe. Most of their stuff seems more wearable in my life, and their sizing is more consistent.
Hm… a toss-up indeed.
I have had one CR blouse in my life, and it lasted forever. I’ve never worn F21, but I look at their site a lot, and I recently ordered clothes to try out.Guess I’ll see!

Whenever I go into Forever 21, there’s so much stuff. It’s unorganised and mildly daunting. Also, a lot of their clothing is just unpractical; I need things I can actually wear somewhere besides a night club.
That said, I like Charlotte Russe’s collections, but I never end up purchasing anything. Although that’s usually because I just hate making decisions on what clothes to buy.
I do like the fact that their jewelry is always on sale, tho.
Forever 21. It has a better selection and I think it has a lot better quality than Charlotte Russe

Forever 21. They have better sales.
I hate most things I see at Forever 21, it’s a bit too hipster for me. Charlotte Russe is more my style. =)
Charolette Russe is more organized but I like Forever 21′s clothes a whole lot better.

i don’t have a forever 21 around me, but i went to one in las vegas and it kind of sucked. it was confusing and messy and i couldn’t really find anything i liked besides a skirt and this overshirt thing. and they’re both unraveling after maybe like 6 wears each.
i DO have a charlotte russe in my area and have a few cute shirts and a skirt. the skirt’s only been worn once or twice, but i’ve worn the shirts about 6 or 7 times in the past year and they haven’t died yet.

charlotte russe, definitely. forever 21′s clothes typically fall apart rather quickly for me. plus before i buy there, i always have to make sure there aren’t any holes in the seams. i found some 5 dollar t shirts at CR and i love them so much.
forever 21, absolutely. charlotte russe is full of cheap fabric and unflatteringly cut items. forever 21 is disorganized, but if you dig, you are guaranteed to find something flattering, cheap, and stylish. Although Charlotte Russe is just as cheap and more organized, i’ve never found something nice looking there, only crappy clothes that are bound to go out of style any minute.
I like for Forever 21′s selection much better. And their stuff has never fallen apart for me. However, I absolutely hate the atmosphere more than anything. Charlotte Russe has a much nice atmosphere even though most of the clothes I would never wear. I do like Charlotte Russe’s shoe specials (buy one get one for 10 dollars is the best ever).
Charlotte Russe. It seems that they use better material for their clothes. Everything at Forever 21 is rayon.
hmm..charlotte russe. there’s a small difference between the larges in the two stores, i think… forever21′s clothes just have never fit me right, but i’m very comfortable in charlotte russe clothing.
i never really shop at either of those stores though, but charlotte russe is a little less intensley indie, as i think someone else said before…yeah.

There isn’t a Charlotte Russe in my city, just F21. But from CR’s website and things my friends buy, I’d say Russe.

I love them both! But if i had to choose– seeing how i am on the thick side– i would go with charlotte. forever 21′s jeans/bottoms are a little too snug and/or short [when it comes to skirts] for me to put my booty into lol
Forever21 for me please!
Charlotte Russe’s clothes hold up much better. Although I’ve only gotten dresses from there that I can think of, which I don’t wear much because I hate wearing dresses.
I like both for different reasons. CR has more sales, promotions, coupons, and etc.

I’ve always felt they were very similar. I think CR is slightly more organized. As for quality, I think they’re about equal, and I think they’re really quite similar style-wise as well. I think F21 has a larger selection though. I have bought many more things from F21 than I have from CR, so I guess F21 is my pick, even though they’re pretty equal.
Forever 21. Charlotte Russe seems a little trashy to me sometimes.
i used to like Charlotte rouse but something happened, its doesn’t carry that variety of styles i crave
I feel like Charlotte Russe tops are a bit expensive. Forever21′s are more like $5-15 and CR’s are more like 20-30 dollars.
forever FTW. only because they have a bigger selection and sometimes they have those cheaaap deals.
We dont have Charlotte Russe in Vancouver.Forever 21 sucks.So NEITHER

Forever 21 has a lot better clothes but CR is much cheaper.
But then again you get what you paid for. CR has shitty quality and the clothes aren’t as cute.
i havent been able to find anything at charlotte russe yet

LOVING the photo. I love F21.
CR is filled with too many frilly, ruffly, girlie things. Do not want.
would have been great if you included a few clothing pictures from both stores for people like me, who’ve never been inside a charlotte russe store.

Charlotte Russe. I hate F21′s return policy.
I go to Forever 21 when I want to but cute sweaters and accessories but that’s all the use to me. Charlotte Russe makes up 90% of my closet!
@TequilaKisses@xanga - I COMPLETELY AGREE. charlotte russe does seem a bit trashy and kinda … chonga-wear
I prefer Forever 21.
I know a lot of people hate on that store for poor quality, but everything I’ve gotten at Charlotte Russe has fallen apart on me…not so with F21.
I love Charlotte Russe! But I want to check out Forever 21 (but it’s not local). Isn’t it kinda the same?
it seems that i can NEVER find anything from forever 21, and when i do find something i like… it doesn’t fit right. forever 21 is so messy, charlotte russe actually has things in place.
Forever 21 stresses me out because of how unorganized it is, but I love their clothes. Charlotte Russe just looks so cheap and trashy to me.
Clothing quality from both places seems about the same, but I prefer Forever 21 because basics are so much cheaper. I usually just end up buying plain tops and a few more fashionable items. I can afford to buy a weird skirt to follow a trend that I’ll only wear a couple times because it’s so cheap.
C.R wins by a mile, although I LOVE shopping at Forever 21. F21 has more accessories, but CR is perfect.
And, they carry pants with buttspace.
i’m in love with forever 21

Charlotte Russe <3
forever 21 i love that storeive found one pair of jeans from charlotte russe that i likedbut ive never found anything since
Charlotte Rousse all the way!
I love charlotte more.
Forever 21 seems more middle school then upper classmen. It use to be pretty good but I can’t seem to find anything in there that doesn’t look trashy or that is going to fall apart in one wash but i
lol junior’s clothes? Makes me feel good i fit into them! I love Charlotte Russe. Like… love it. <3
who sells cuter panties?????

Sorry, since they don’t handle plus sizes, neither… Walmart is better!
I like forever 21 better than Charlotte Russe, mostly b/c forever 21 is a bit cheaper and their size fits true to their size, if you go to Charlotte Russe and ask for a meduim, its too small so you have to go up a size, i mean thats just me but my friends and i always have to either go up a size or go to another store and buy something else b/c Charlotte Russe does not stay true to the sizes and most of their stuff is a bit expensive too.
They’re both my favorite stores. I really can’t decide which I like better../=

I work @ Charlotte Russe and I ABSOLUTELY love our clothes. Before I started there my closet consisted of everything of Aeropostale…when I started at Charlotte I realized what I had been missing. Now I can’t stop buying stuff from my store! Always something new in my closet! <3 Charlotte Russe!
