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 :)

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

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 LOVE New York & Co. this store is my new Lane Bryant

11-21-2008, 12:50 PM
I like TJ Maxx and Old Navy. Reasonable and long lasting! I love Victoria Secter underware- well worth it!

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.

11-21-2008, 01:06 PM
I'm a Target girl all the way!

11-21-2008, 04:07 PM
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! :lol:

11-22-2008, 08:28 AM
I like Norstrom Rack, TJ Max and basically anything else that offers a good deal.

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.

11-22-2008, 09:11 AM
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!!! :)

11-22-2008, 12:14 PM
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! :lol: 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.

I went to Old Navy yesterday for the first time... {{{sigh}}} It's my new fave... :)

Banana Republic (for work)
Tristan (for work and play)
Macy's (for lots of stuff!)
Old Navy (for hanging about)
Lululemon (for working out)

Talbots, Lane Bryant

I like Avenue and NY&Co. I really like Old Navy. Looking forward to having more options though.

12-10-2008, 07:05 AM
Banana republic, gap, club monaco, jacob, lululemon. And boutiques for designer denim. Online, I love bluefly.com

12-10-2008, 07:37 AM
C.J. Banks, I love there stuff. Cant wait till I get out of the big girl stores!!

Does NY & Co now carry plus sizes?

My main stores are Lane Bryant, Avenue, Maurices, and Target

Yes, the NY&C stores I go to have plus sizes. I thinking all of them carry plus sizes now. I sure hope so.

I am in a size 10 now (yay!) so now I love the juniors department at Macy's (not because the Starbuck's is right next to it either). :lol:

12-16-2008, 01:53 PM
I could be wrong - BUT - I think the "plus sizes" at NY & CO aren't really plus sizes. For example, I think their 16 is cut differently than a 16W, and as a result, is a little smaller than the 16 you'd get at Lane Bryant or other clothing stores that sell "woman's" sizes.

My favorites are NY & Co, Macy's, Torrid, and Target (for workout clothes).

My favorite stores to shop at are:

JC Penny, Kohls, Target, The Limited(when they have a sale:D) NY& Company, occasionaly Macy's. But I'll check out any store that is having a great sale.:dizzy::dizzy:

12-21-2008, 07:05 PM
i love NY and CO, but I have a large chest...which makes it hard to wear many of their tops. I can do some of them...but not most.

I wear a size 14 in NY and Co, but yes... their clothes are cut different. It's not like something you'd get at LB.

I like Macy's, but again...I have a problem with the tops in most of their things. I'm in that weird size...can't really shop at Lane Bryant...but can't really shop anywhere else. haha

12-21-2008, 08:06 PM
Buffalo Exchange! In Minneapolis we had another hip thrift store chain called Everyday People that I liked. They had really cool clothes in good condition and they weren't very expensive. Once in awhile some huge designer name brand would come through, like Diane von Furstenberg or Marc Jacobs and you could usually get it (if you liked it!) for under $40.

Otherwise Target. Clearance racks. Sometimes regular floor if I'm feeling RICH. :D

12-22-2008, 11:45 PM
When I was in a size 12 I loved the cut of the clothes at NY & CO. Soon I'll be there again. Sitting at a 16 right now and mostly shopping at TJ Maxx or Target because that's what I can afford. Still wish we had a CATO up here.

12-23-2008, 12:28 AM
Since I work in retail, I would have to say that my favorite store is the one that I work at: Elder-Beerman. It has 7 or 8 sister stores that you might know: Herbergers, Bon-Ton, Carson Prie Scott, Yonkers, and some others that I cant think of right at the moment.

I am the department manager of the plus sizes too, so I see all the new clothes coming in off the truck. (Not good for my budget ~ since I am a clothes horse)

I don't really shop anywhere else, we have a good selection and with my discount I don't really need to go other places.

I love the Gap-- especially because I fit into their size 16 jeans! Woo hoo!
