So, what sort of store is this? I heard Selena Gomez shops here, but when I went in, I didn't see the hype. I just saw overpriced.

What sort of store is this? What would you all compare it to?

There aren't many stores comparable to Urban Outfitters - the only answer I can come up with is an expensive, high quality thrift store. The clothing is often inspired by vintage designs, but the fabrics and cuts are more modern.

Agreed. And lately they've been featuring smaller designers in their store - Charlotte Ronson, Corpus, Steven Alan, Geren Ford, and Rendez-vous by Paul & Joe Sister.

Also, it is funny to me that you know Selena Gomez and not UO! I thought it would be the other way around...

I fell completely in love with this Free People dress on the UO website. I went into the store, but thee was only one dress left and it was an XS. I did try it on and I fit into it but the top part squashed my boobs. haha. It looked awesome on though... I really wanna get it in my size!

That's a really beautiful dress, and I'm an XS. But knowing my luck, I'd go in and find it; but the only size left would be a large or XL.

^^It's by Free People, so you could get it somewhere else. The size 0 is pretty small, though, because I'm usually either a 0 or 2.

I really like the preppy look this season. I've been looking for crested blazers for a few falls now and think I may find the perfect one.

So glad August 14th is coming up...

Also, you might want to try and see if you have a Free People store nearby you? I had no idea one had opened up around me until a few months ago. I didn't really care for that dress on the hanger, but I saw someone wearing it out downtown yesterday and it looked pretty darling.
