i am having a hard time adjusting my clothing to my age and body now-( for the last year i have been wearing old navy active stretch pants monday -satuday. and a dress or skirt on sundays…) i really want to dress more appoorite when i am running around with my kids and not look like a couch potatoe… i am working out 4 to 5 times a week– because when you wear stretch pants all the time and try to fit pants that you have you dont realize how much you can gained..
but now the shopping question- where do you buy clothes that are cute and trendy but also age appropriete .and. size 12-14 bottoms and medium/large tops

@asianyoushi: Express and The Limited. About 90% of my clothes are from one of those stores. lol. Both work and casual attire.
ETA: 29 now and started shopping these places regularly probably around 25.

The Limited! Most of the other ones have already been said- Express, Banana Republic, Loft, Victoria’s Secret (online), Modcloth (dresses), and sometimes department stores

Express is my favourite. But I always wait for a coupon to shop there, because they e-mail them out almost constantly. And while I like their clothes, the quality isn’t high enough to fit the full retail prices (i.e. $70 for a top from Express…yeah, don’t think so). They have big 40% off everything sales roughy 4x per year which is when I buy most of my stuff.
I also like that they have a big selection of sizes and carry pants in short/regular/tall because regular pants are always floods on me. If you order online the selection of sizes is much greater.
I also shop at Macy’s, Nordstrom, and other places. But Express is my go-to.

I mostly shop at Windsor Fashions since they have clothes for almost every occasion.
I also like shopping at Nordstrom, Express, and random independent clothing stores.
I only wear jeans during winter, so I don’t constantly shop for those, but Express and Nordstrom sell good quality jeans.
I get lost at Forever 21 (they usually have a 2nd or a 3rd floor now here in CA!), so I only go there when I see a particular item that I like online.

@asianyoushi: Most of my clothes are from Macy’s…work clothes I get from Macy’s or NY&C…summer dresses I still get at Papaya (can’t beat $20 for a summer dress! lol)

I shop at Limited, H&M, Target, F21, but my job allows very casual clothing, so I don’t need to buy a lot of professional stuff for everyday wear. And I love American Eagle for jeans!
