Favourite clothing stores?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I like to engage in some serious retail therapy when I'm happy. And I have a LOT of favourite clothing shops... ones that I can actually afford to shop at! What are yours???

Jacob is my absolute favourite store. They've got great casual and office attire and SALES galore! Especially the Bloor Street location... there's Jacob Lingerie and Jacob Connexion too, all in the same shop. I also like Garage, even if they are geared towards a younger crowd - their summer stuff is fun and affordable. H&M and Le Chateau are great for accessories and some decent threads. I like Gap for their jeans - I find they're a perfect fit. I've found some awesome deals on classy suits at Smart Set... cheap AND chic! And I LOVE Queen Street West and Kensington Market for all their alternative boutiques... I've bought quite a few cool tops, accessories and loads of shoes down there!

But I'll save shoes for another thread!

All great stores!
I love going to Le Chateau, sirens, the Gap, Suzy Shier, all those kinds of stores, half the time I wouldn't be able to get the guts up to wear the skimpy stuff but I love to look at it!!

I love Hot Topic but can rarely afford any of their clothes.

Express clothes fit me better than other stores, as do Gap jeans. I could spend a small fortune in Victoria's Secret!

Oh Jenn, I'm so jealous that you have an HM store nearby! I always love their stuff in the magazines!
My faves are Express , Forever 21, and Victoria's Secret. I also love Ann Klein for the good preppy stuff.

I like Kohl's.. they always have great sales. I do like Forever 21 sometimes too. They do have some cute clothes and not ridiculous prices.

Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic - i love their customer service!
And then there's also Jcrew, H&M and American Eagle. Too many to list! i like TJMaxx too, but the one close to me has a sucky collection

i agree about the quality of HM, i think it's a hit or miss. i've had clothes from HM that have lasted me for years though. i used to like Express, but their prices have fluctuate so much. Hmmm...this thread makes me feel like shopping now.

Most of my clothes are from American Eagle Outfitters... but I also buy alot of clothes from Abercrombie and Aeropostale.

TJ Maxx of course too, Marshall Fields sometimes.

We don't have Abercrombie or Victoria's Secret up here... but Jacob makes up for that. If anyone south of the border ventures up to Canada, be sure to check out Jacob. Nice quality and nice prices!

Banana Republic is a bit too pricey for me, as is Aritzia, but I do love their stuff.

H&M clothing can sometimes be lower in quality, but most of their stuff is awesome and the price is right. I've got a pair of gray cargos I've been wearing all summer and they still rock.

We have Zara here as well... but I find their stuff too pricey for the quality.

Though gorgeous, their clothes appear to the "dry clean only" variety which is too much hassle, especially in the summer.

I just bought a new wardrobe in one day (my bday gift from hubby ) so I'm an expert!

After a long day of shopping, I have to say Cato was the easiest experience, especially having graduated back into plus-size clothes. I bought several items there, all very cute. The stores are split right down the middle... plus size on one side, smaller sizes on the other. Each side is arranged so that what you need is easy to find. What I would consider business casual to not-so-casual. I even found a nice top marked down to $2.99!!! An early spring hold-out, had long sleeves.

I think they primarily sell their own brand of clothes, but the clothes out now were bright & cheery... I rarely wear bright colors but I loved the selection anyway! This was my first Cato experience... and I give a big

Express, I cant really afford them though, so I usually get their stuff on Ebay *blush*

Otherwise I get some really good buys at my local thrift stores, and I do enjoy that..always nice to find a good buy.

And...there was a store in New York I LOVED and would hit instantly again...Strawberries.

You should check out Cheap Jack's (if it's even still there haha I haven't been there in a long time).. it's on Broadway in NYC. Really neat store.

I went shopping today I got 2 pairs of flip flops from Old Navy for $5 -- good deal. I also went to Forever 21. I got a really cute skirt, some bracelets, a scarf and a pair of undies for $30. I just wish they had shoes there!

I buy a lot online: Newport News, Old Pueblo Traders (I shop their local store, too), Shepler's Western Wear and the Pyramid Collection.

For national chains, I like Target, Ross, Old Navy and Dress Barn. Ross is hit-or-miss, though. The store on my side of town is nasty.

I shop a lot of local stores: Suzy's Deals (everything $5 or less), Rainbow, Western Warehouse and consignment shops. Buffalo Exchange and Twice as Nice have good quality resale. Fourth Avenue has a lot of vintage and funky boutiques. I have clothes from the 1880s to modern day.

For shoes, I'm all over the map: online, DSW, Steve Madden, Target, Payless. I never miss Dillard's annual designer shoe sale. This year, Jennifer and I bought Steve Madden pumps, for $11.00 per pair!

Mervyn's has really cute clothes, for the twins. I bought their swimsuits and birthday outfits there.

Target in Aus
