GTKY: Shopping

Happy Friday!!!

So, I'm wondering where everyone shops for clothes at! I feel like I'm at this awkward age where clothes either look too young for me or too old for me.  I'm trying to find my 'adult' style but I feel so completely clueless.  Where do you ladies shop?  What style do you like?  What are your must-have basics in your closet?  I need help!!

    I will be following this post. I feel your pain! Working with highschool aged students has turned me off to all my old stores. If I wear something from American Eagle I get the "Oh my god you and so and so are twins today!" comment. Ugh.

    I still wear a lot of American Eagle :))

    But I teach middle school, and they wear uniforms, so I don't have to worry about that so much.

    I shop at Kohl's quite a bit, but I'm not gonna lie, I still scope out the Juniors section. Old Navy has some great high water type pants in what they call the Pixie cut, and I feel like those look great and are still quite professional. I'm hoping to get a few more pairs. (I have some of their shorts, too. I'm a wide hip girl, but they totally work)

    I'm not a good person to answer this question, though. I don't dress very age appropriate a lot of the time. I wear bows in my hair and quirky earrings from Claire's. I think I just have the reputation of being the "quirky, nerdy" teacher, and I'm totally ok with that. My strategy is to look super professional on Mondays and then just go downhill from there :P

    The clothes at Old Navy and Gap tend to fit me best, but I'm not much of a shopper. Thankfully, though, my sister is! I get her cute hand-me-downs every time she cleans out her closet. Score!

    @quippery I've been online shopping/window browsing at Old Navy this morning.  I feel like they have clothes that look professional and age appropriate without being stuffy and matronly.  I may have to make an Old Navy run this weekend.

    Old Navy and Gap. I'm also a huge fan of Banana Republic, Ann Taylor and New York & Co--I feel like they have a lot of good stuff that's not too old looking (I'm 28 if that matters). They're on the pricier side of what I'm comfortable with but they have great sales and coupons. I love Kohl's but the one near me is awful so I've stopped going there.

    Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack are my go-to places... I'm a big fan of finding designer clothes at a discount.(The Rack also has a great website now that makes it really easy to shop.) My style is more classic so I tend to wear a lot of skirts and dresses to work. I also like the Neiman Marcus site Last Call... they have awesome designer stuff that's 65% off - great finds for things to wear at the office and for a fun night out. 
    Other places on the list are White House Black Market, Express (for dress pants), Target, Lululemon, Gap, and Banana Republic.

    I just bought a few sale items at Express that I adore... they're big, flowy dress shirts that I wear to work on a regular basis. Other than that, I'm pretty plain and get some basic items from Old Navy. 

    Anyone have discount stores around them? I usually regular a place called Gabriel Brothers that gets clothing from all types of places at a discount because it's either out of style or last season. I can't bare to spend full price for clothes... forty bucks for a single shirt makes me feel nauseous.

    Totally agree, @WinchestertoPittsburgh. I'm allergic to full price.

    I'm a big fan of TJMaxx. I know they can be hit-or-miss, but the one closest to me happens to be pretty good! Also, for all you online gals, I have had good luck with asos.com. They've got a great range of styles and price-points to hit classic to edgy. Also, I love me some shopbop.com because you get free 2 day shipping with amazon prime :)

    I am plus size, which narrows my choices down immensely. However, there are a few stores that I go to that sell both regular and plus size clothing. Of those, I like:
    *Old Navy
    *Cato (pretty cheap, sometimes I find good stuff)
    *Maurice's (A little on the country side but they have cute tops and dress bottoms)
    *Dress Barn (some of their stuff looks a little too matronly but occasionally I find good pieces)

    Now I feel the need to go do some online shopping for back to school. I just ordered some knee high boots the other day from SimplyBe!

    I'm pretty short and it's hard for me to find clothes in my size. I have the best luck with clothes for work at Banana Republic, Loft, or Express (dress pants). I've occasionally been able to find some blouses/cardigans in the mall department stores petite sections (Macys, Lord and Taylor). I really miss Loehmann's.

    For non-work clothes, usually just casual stuff from Old Navy or Target. But I was super bummed when I went to buy a maxi dress the other day and it was like a foot too long - I just don't see the point in paying to tailor a $15 dress.

    NY&Co is where I find nice clothes that fit me the best. I go to Kohl's for pants and casual wear (though I still shop in juniors there).

    I shop at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack for everything. 98% of the time I only purchase sale items. When I go into the Rack, I only shop the clearance racks and I get tons of great quality tops for under $20.

    A lot of my peers shop at Loft and Express. I like how their clothes look but refuse to shop there as many coworkers have the same outfits. Also, anything I've ever bought at Express got a hole after 1-2 wears.

    I'm slightly addicted to clothes shopping, but only when they're on sale (and I buy online so I end up returning a lot)!  I'm petite (5' 0") and can dress pretty casual at work (jeans most days with nice tees/sweaters) so I find Loft works out great - for work and play. There, and Banana Republic. Both have GREAT petite selections and BR even has a Petites only store at one of the malls near me, but they are a little pricier and dressier.  Loft is always having 40-50% off sales and I have a card there so tons of extra coupons and what not.

    For dresses, modcloth has a great selection - 100's of dresses. For jeans, Levis has great petite/curvy styles.

    Not many other stores have good petite selections though.

    I actually really dislike shopping. For the last year I have been using an online box service called Stitch Fix. They send you a box of 5 items, you choose what you want after you try them on and send the rest back. They are pricey, but I figure I am saving myself loads of time and stress as well as gas money in not having to go clothes shopping. I have only been shopping twice in the last year and once was for jeans because they didn't have any in my size and once was for a bathing suit which they don't sell anyway.

    I am hopeless and can't dress myself.  I am short and round but not "curvy" and have no boobs.  I'm a mess, actually.  I have to ask my 26 year old sister to shop for me.  Literally.  For my last birthday I asked for gift cards then essentially handed them over to her.  She's so cute and stylish and knows exactly what to wear and how to wear it.  I have no idea how she just "knows". 

    She's found cute yet age/work appropriate clothes at Target and Kohl's and JCPenney.

    I do 90% of my shopping at Victoria's Secret. They have a good selection of clothes on victoriassecret.com but there isn't much in the store. I love online shopping with VS because you can return items in store instead of shipping them back. I also shop the PINK collection which is a younger style (I'm 24) but leggings and a hoodie are my go to weekend and evening wear. I read a previous post about not wearing leggings as pants and I have to admit I'm guilty of this! I wouldn't wear them to work but I'll wear them to the grocery store or soccer practice all day. My booty looks so round and perky in their leggings I can't help it!

    I'm Canadian so my store choices probably don't help you very much, but when I used to go shopping state-side when our dollar was up I loved going to Old Navy, Khols, Target and Forever21. In Canada I like shopping at Winners (like a Tj Maxx I think?) and a few stores in our mall... I haven't been shopping in forever though since I wear scrubs pretty much every day for work.

    @severmilli12 As far as basics recommendations, I would have to say wearing mostly black is a safe bet.  At a past job, the boss insisted all of the women wear black along with chunky, fancy jewelry (loaned by her).  Wearing a black dress with a statement necklace is still my go-to when I'm unsure what's appropriate to wear. 

    Online is usually the best option for getting deals.  Loft is the best for work clothes and has crazy sales (70% off sale items the other day!).  I like to pair black tops (t-shirts from Banana Republic or Gap) with fun skirts.  Banana Republic is great for work pants, dresses, and cardigans (although lately the quality has gone down hill).  Anthropologie is great for special, one-of pieces, but as it can be pricey I find that it's best to wait until they are on sale or they have a sale on their sale.  Also, if you join Anthro, you get 15% off during your birthday month. 

    For nice jeans, I shop at Nordstrom Rack.  For cheap sandals or cardigans, Target.  For nice shoes, Nordstrom Rack, Clarks, and Gilt.  I have a couple of Old Navy basic black summer dresses that were like $10 and I like to accessorize those with glitzy Anthropologie belts.  Francesca's has colorful, big statement necklaces.  For bags, Kate Spade has big sales, if you get their e-mails.  I have a few Longchamps too that are such a good carry all bag.  Kenneth Cole Reaction has nice basic ballet flats.  Basic work shoes are pretty cheap at Sole Society too.  My biggest splurge is a couple of dresses I have from Rebecca Taylor.

    Right now, I'm wearing a black Gap t-shirt tucked into crazy print Anthro skirt, and Target sandals.

    My parents house is right next to outlet so I do most of my shopping there my favorite shops are Banana Republic, Loft and J Crew. These are what I wear at school.
    I love my jeans from My Daughters Jeans, so we have to go to a different outlet in Colorado for those fabulous jeans well worth it and I stock up on them.
    My size is 14 to 16 so I can go between Plus Size clothes and regular size depending on cut and fit.  So my plus size clothes come from Lane Byran and Torrid.
    I am a nerd so my weekend clothing is a mix from Hot Topic (yep a 30 year still shopping there) and Tee-Furry (you can get the best nerdy shirts there).

    I am a teacher and love clothes (like too much)! I buy some very basic stuff at Target... like simple tees, shorts, etc... more weekend stuff. For work clothes, I LOVE Loft (my fav), J. Crew Factory (because let's be real, actual J. Crew is out of my price range), and occasionally I'll snag something great at Old Navy. Really all of those stores are kind of overpriced but are ALWAAYS running sales... I don't buy anything from Loft unless it's at least 40% off because they regularly run 40%, 50%, and even occasionally 60% off. 

    The other thing is if you have the disposable income, I am seriously addicted to LeTote. You basically rent your wardrobe. It costs $50 a month, and you can go on the website and add all of the stuff you love to your "closet". They choose things form your closet and/or similar things and send you 5 items... 3 pieces of clothing, 2 accessories. You wear them as much as you want, then throw back in the included mailer (postage is already paid/on there) and mail back when you're done. Then they send you a new tote! You get unlimited totes so you always have something new to wear! I love it so much. I put mine on hold over the summer, but am excited to start it back up again in a few weeks. Some people think I'm crazy for doing it, but it helps me to mix up my wardrobe and try things I might not otherwise without the commitment... and I'm the kind of person who wears something once or twice and then doesn't want to wear it again, so for me it makes sense/is cheaper than actually buying new clothes all of the time. The only downside is that since it's across the country from me (based in San Fran I think?), I do have to wait about 4 business days for a new tote.

    Right now, I'm wearing a black Gap t-shirt tucked into crazy print Anthro skirt, and Target sandals.

    Because I work for the company, 99% of my wardrobe comes from jcrew/madewell. I also like loft and gap for sales.

    @Beany24 you have my style! I would only add jcrew to your list, and then that's pretty much my entire clothing and accessory collection

    Where do you ladies shop?  Cheap places mostly since I'm not working. I like Target, H&M, and the clearance racks at American Eagel

    What style do you like? 
    I'm super casual. I love jeans and tanks most of the time, and just throw a cardigan over the tank if I need to look more put together. I love flats for footwear. I have all different kinds, and it's easy to stash a fancier pair in your purse if you need to jazz up the outfit. Nice shoes and a cardi fix everything in my humble opinion.

    What are your must-have basics in your closet?
    Quality jeans...they have to fit right, or they are donated. Cardigans of all different colors, styles, and levels of "fancy." Layering type tanks, and shirts to go under the cardigans....of course. I also have a few dresses that can be dressed up or worn alone to look more laid back. I do have a couple of skirts, but I generally hate my chicken legs, so I wear mostly pants. Lastly nice footwear in flats, and boots.....OH, and one "interview" outfit ready to go that can be worn at any time of the year.

    I have really never had a style, but I have always loved clothes that were from or looked to be from the 40s and 50s. Recently Rockabilly (kind of punk with vintage inspired pieces) is my style obsession and I have been looking for places to buy what I like affordable and plus sized. Stumbled across www.lebombshop.Com today and cannot wait to order#

    American Eagle, Target, and Old Navy mostly. I shop around on various sites online too for nerdy/geeky t-shirts a lot - thinkgeek.com :). My work is pretty casual so this generally meets my needs. I like Modcloth for special occasions/dressy clothes.

    I clothes shop very rarely. I'm that awkward size between junior and girls with a short torso. When I do shop, I find most stuff that fits me is from Kohls. My style tends to be jeans and a tee, but lately I've been trying to be more grown up looking. I like the IZ Byer line at Kohls and can find some shirts that will fit me (as long as there aren't any plunging necklines or they aren't ridiculously long). My must-haves are camis and hoodies.

    I'm a nearly-exclusive target shopper with a minor smattering of Old Navy or Gap. I shop maybe once a year and I literally make a list of clothing needs (kinda like the weekly grocery list!) and get only those things. If I am not finding a list-item that I like then I just wait a year and hope the styles are more in my favor for that item later.

    Also- I haaaatteeeee skinny jeans. They are all wrong on me. It is weird because I"m a long/boyish frame so you'd think that'd work but no. I assure you no. Death to skinnies. Bring back boot cut please.

    My favorites are the loft, limited, ny&c, jcrew, tjmax, marshals, target, and old navy. I like getting things that I can use for work or play, but then all my play clothes end up pretty conservative because I teach second grade. I usually know it's time to retire some items when the kids start pointing out the frequency which I wear them. It's always nice to be called out by a second grader.
    I'm with you ladies, I don't pay full price for anything. I feel like I'm being cheated if I do!
