I’ve been going through my closet latley trying to do some very very late spring cleaning lol. I’ve noticed that I’m going through a weird “transition” so to speak when it comes to clothing. I went to my local mall the other day and I feel like I’m just stuck in the “forever 21” kinda stage.
Where do y’all shop that doesn’t break the bank?

I like Express personally.

foreverlovex: i shop at banana republic, j crew, and the limited. i think j crew offers some good pieces and fun accessories to help you feel more like an “adult” without looking too “old”.
i’m 32. i can relate to what you’re talking about. i remember the moment when i looked at myself in the mirror and realized i couldn’t dress like i was still a college student (graphic tees, jeans, and chuck taylors). i pretty much go to BR, j crew, and the limited for all of my basics.

TaurianDoll: Thats EXACTLY where I’m at. I mean, I still wear some Hollister sweat pants (because they are comfy) but I feel like they make me look like a teen because thats what they wear! I just want to feel more “adult” when I go out. Thank you for the suggestions! I will have to go look there next time 🙂

Do you know how often I have to put a graphic tee back on the rack after reminding myself I’m 29 now?! haha<br /><br />I tend to buy very simple pieces from places like H&M and accessorize more. I bought a dress from Wet Seal for a wedding but wore a very nice belt with it to make it less casual. I normally would not even shop there but I found that they have some more mature stuff hidden amongst the teeny clothes. I’m not sure what “breaking the bank” means to you, but I’m a Target level shopper!

foreverlovex: I shop a TON at Marshalls and TJ Maxx. Also sometimes at Kohls…they have good basics and sometimes cute work dresses/pants.

AprilinTX: i started off doing this. buying basics, doing more colorblocking than anything and throwing on more interesting jewelry like large necklaces or a scarf.
from there i built a more interesting wardrobe with patterned pieces like blazers and cardigans.

I’m 29 and I shop a lot on Modcloth.com, also started shopping Anthropologie (a lot of the time I’ll buy stuff from their off ebay because it’s cheaper haha), and I shop at H&M a lot as well.
I’m petite framed so I will also go to Charlotte Russe too, but they are hit or miss. Sometimes they’ll have some nice stuff, that’s more mature and others they’ll have things that you’d only see a 18 year old wearing.

I love INC at Macys and Ann Taylor outlet (for some reason I never like anything at the regualr Ann Taylor stores though)

I’m obsessed with Loft. And Eddie Bauer (I know, I know). I think most of my wardrobe comes from those two stores with a sprinkling of other places (target, New York and company, gap).

foreverlovex: OMG! I thought it was just me. I am 27 years old and feel stuck when I go shopping….My new store I like is H&M its better than F21 to me. For work I like JC Pennys and Macys but like you I am still trying to find somewhere to shop for everyday clothes that are a bit more grown up but not old lady. lol.
