Default What's your favorite clothing store to shop at?

And why?

I always go to the mall and go to the same shops everytime. I always say that I'm going into a new one, but I never do.

New York & Company is my absolute favorite clothing store to shop at because their clothes definitely represents my style.

I also love Burlington Coat Factory because of their name brand at low prices.

Old Navy because they have fun clothes...not of the best quality, but fun and they have the best clearance racks in the mall....

...these are the only places I shop at when I go to the mall.

1st off, I have to say that shopping brings on anxiety attacks for me!! So, often-times, I'll shop w. a list & "get-er-done". I can look up the stores below on-line, look at what I want, then either order it, or go get it

online
Victoria's Secret - I love their sweaters (not bulky), t-shirts, and skirts. Their measurements are all there so I just measure & order.

stores
Joe Fresh - great casual clothes that are relatively cheap & aren't frumpy
Spanner - don't have too much of their stuff - but its' gorgeous + a nice treat!
Ricki's - their jackets & pants fit me (I'm an hourglass shape - big bust, smaller waist, then hips)
Zellers - really like their bras, undies, & nightgowns
Giant Tiger - sometimes they have really nice stuff & cheap. this is where I buy most of my son's clothes b/c he grows so fast (why spend $40-$50 on jeans, when I can get pretty-cool ones for $15-$20?)

There you have it! Happy shopping!

I typically shop at kohl's. I think their prices are fairly cheap, the quality of their clothes is good, and its convenient since i HATE malls.

CATO, TJ Maxx, Target, NY & CO.... Just moved up north and I really wish we had CATO up here. It's one of the only places I've found cute healed shoes that are comfortable.

Newly discovered but I like Charlotte Russe--cute and cheap. I like Banana Republic--can't go wrong with anything there just about.

Big stores I like Kohl's--everything is always on sale and I like Macy's--great brands, great looks every time.

Shoes I am a Steve Madden girl. OMG.

I've pretty much stuck with Avenue the past couple years because they carry tall sizes and have clothes I can wear to work. I have gotten a few things at WalMart too - tops.

I can't wait til I have my choice of places to shop!

JC Penney's.

I like their clothes because they're fairly well-made, are mostly fashionable and they aren't cheap looking. Plus, they carry tall sizes.

TJ's, Ross, Marshall's... OK, I like to bargain hunt... I admit it.

I also love Macy's (but too expensive these days). Walmart sells Levi's jeans for $20 and I love that. I'll also check out Target occasionally.

For shoes... Famous Footwear!!!

I like Cato (I shop here mostly), Ross, Burlington Coat Factory, WalMart is so-so.....alot of times, I can't find anything here though. I also shop at Goodwill! You'd be surprised what you can find in there! For shoes, I shop dollar stores (Freds), Pay Less, Cato...wherever has wide width shoes. They're (cute ones) hard to find. I'll shop anywhere that doesn't cost an arm and a leg!

I've recently discovered the joy of the outlet mall - the one near me has three stores that I think are my new favorites: Liz Clairborne - I love sweaters and they had lots to choose from on super sale, Jones New York - I actually found dress pants that were somewhat trendy that weren't low rise in the waist, and Bass - the greatest socks I have ever owned. I have narrow feet and socks always bunch up inside my shoes, but not these! And, they had cute patterns!

When I'm looking to shop local I typically go to Kohl's, Steinmart, Target. Reasonable prices, good selection.

You sure you want to ask a Shopoholic this question? LOL!
I love outlets... but only go there 2 or 3 times a year... locally I like to shop at Gap, Old Navy, H&M, Charlotte Russe, Aeropostale, and American Eagle. I pick up a few basics at Target ever now and then... like the solid long sleeved shirts for layering.
