Meet the newest neighbor on 5th Avenue.

Goodbye Takashimaya, Hello Forever 21!

Forever 21 on the New York Post on the day of the store's Grand Opening with a 10% coupon too!

I actually woke up late that morning. I planned to be on 5th Avenue at like 6am, first for the Lanvin

♥ H&M line that opened at 8am and then head over a few blocks up to the newest, glitzy, and may I say HUGE (6 floors!), Forever 21 store that replaced the former Japanese retailer, Takashimaya who was most famous for their flower shop.

So at 9 am, I got there too late for Lanvin H&M so I went directly to Forever 21.
I was lucky. I was actually surprised that the line didn't wrap all the way around the block an hour before the store opened. People actually started showing up around 10:15, doors still not open.

Check out what happened at the Grand Opening of Forever 21 now on 693 Fifth Avenue!
the line...which is much more longer than shown...
I was SO glad I was one of the first 400 people on  line for a gift card! Each card was given and valued at all random prices
luckily I got a $20 giftcard! :)

Upon entering, I was greeted my a whole bunch of Forever 21's newest employees, clapping and yelling "WELCOME!"

Welcome indeed! 

First Floor:

those were gone quick!
this floor was my favorite. It was an all "sweet-things" themed floor!
LOVED this! It was set up like a mini kitchen in the middle of the 5th floor!

of course, what's a grand opening party without awesome music?
there was even a little something for Forever 21's shoppers outside of the store!
I'm really  bad at those claw games...
everyone was trying so hard to get a hold of those giftcards!
okay so I tried...
and actually won something! BEAT THAT machine! Yay!
