My friend - who has a blog called http://hiplip.wordpress.com/ came home from Vegas with some high quality, fashion forward, and sophisticated items from Forever 21.
I went to Barton Creek Mall today and learned they only carry the brand in Austin at the Domain store.
The sub-brand of the store is a bit more pricey...but still under $50.
Don't be afraid of Forever 21. If you are smart...no one will ever know you didn't spend a fortune. There is NOTHING better than someone complimenting a piece of clothing...you know you got at Forever.
