Whoa Nelly… This sucker is huge!

Like a giddy teen, I happily scoured 3 massive floors of cheap, girly goodness. After being handed a goody bag and a free gift card, all of us shoppers were greeted by dozens of screaming, cheering F21 staffers as we streamed into the store.

Some cool new additions that I noticed were a shoe salon in the basement along with a cosmetics section where they served up free manicures to customers.

2 hours and 3 fitting room trips later, I left the store unscathed and with the following bounty in hand:
