Recently, I promised myself that I’d stop buying clothing at Target and Old Navy (unless I have a major emergency and need to buy something immediately). The thing is, I like the clothes from Target and Old Navy. I think they’re super cute. But the problem is that they fall apart really easily and get stretched out, and I’m tired of having a closet full of things that are basically unwearable after a few washes. The final straw was when a t-shirt I bought from Old Navy got a hole in the sleeve after I’d worn it once.
Oh, and then there’s the fact that Target was 95% crop tops all summer. I’m an old woman. I can’t wear crop tops.
So anyway, I need to find new places to shop.But here’s the thing: I don’t know where to shop, and I hate aimlessly “looking around” for new stores. Spending an entire afternoon, wandering around looking at things, sometimes not finding anything…for an impatient person like myself, that’s hell.
So how do I find out where I can buy clothing that’s at least kind of well-made but isn’t a million dollars? Right now I shop at Modcloth (but sometimes it’s so overpriced!), Anthropologie (ditto!), and Macy’s. But I need to branch out.
Where do you guys buy your “I’m a grown up lady” clothes? Your casual hang-out clothes? Your fancy work clothes? Please, let me know in the comments. I need you guys. I’m helpless.
