Bargain fashionistas, rejoice. Forever 21 (1020 G St. N.W.) has finally opened its long-awaited downtown location. In March, West Elm vacated the Woodward and Lothrop building, opening a spot for our favorite spot for trendy bargains. It’s about time, considering this is its first location actually in the District. (There are already several locations in Maryland and Virginia.)

The new, massive Forever 21 lives up to all our greatest expectations. We were greeted with a mesh shopping bag to hold potential purchases. Rest assured, the three-story retail heaven has plenty to fill up one's bag. We're particularly excited by the on-trend tutu skirts, fall dresses with exposed zippers and flirty tops ideal for a night out on the town -- and at their fast-fashion prices, no one has to worry too much about drink spillage.

Next lunch break, head over to Forever 21 and get ready to shop 'til you drop -- or at least until your tummy rumbles. Easily overwhlemed shoppers can do some pre-shopping online.
