I believe there is good stuff absolutely everywhere.

S*uce in Dubai (in the Village Mall)
Balenciaga and Chloe-only for bags
Topshop-a lot less recently-good for sunglasses
Indian markets in Bombay-embroidered pashminas, ethnic shoes
The Oberoi-Bombay
Portobello/Covent Garden Market/Gray's Antiques market-accessories

The world is moving so fast now that we start freaking long before our parents did because we don't ever stop to breathe anymore. the last kiss

Jo-Ann's Fabric and Hancock Fabrics, mostly, since I make most of my clothes.

Plus some shopping at a couple of different thrift shops. Target or J. C. Penny from time to time.

It came from out-of-space!

*Gap ( I used to shop much there, but now they closed their stores here. Their Long and Lean Jeans was perfect for me, the perfect fit )
*H&M ( sometimes they have really great stuff and sometimes really awful but I love most of her bags and accessoires , I like their basic tank tops and camisoles.About the quality , I can wear their stuff longer than 1 year ;-))
*Vero Moda ( cheaper than Zara and better quality imo, and not everybody is wearing them here, I like their stuff )
*Only( nice items and nice jeans)
*Zara ( I love the buy bags and shoes of them and wait for the sale but I don't buy many clothes by them because the quality is pretty crappy most of the time and I don't pay so that much money for that quality)
*Mango ( like their bag selection but I also wait for sale)
*Hallhuber( from time to time nice items )
*Kookai ( they used to be very nice but now....well it's fading )
*Oasis ( I really like this store though it's pricey for me )
*Review (they have nice shirts here)
*Yes&No( also nice shirts)
*French Connection( very nice items but pricey )
*C&A( nice accessoires and sometimes you can find a nice item)
*Görtz( great selection of shoes)
*Sigrun Wöhr ( great selection of shoes from cheaper ones to Prada)

I have a limited budget as student who works besides the university, so I need my time to buy stuffz if I really need it or not but I'm so addicted to accessoires and bags+shoes ;-)

Mostly thrift stores. I like Value Village because you can often find slightly nicer things there than at Goodwill or the Salvation Army, both of which tend to be picked over.

I've also started visiting the Gap again. Their sales are so good! I recently found three basic white tees (long sleeve, short sleeve, and sleeveless) for $5 a piece.

Urban Outfitters, especiallly for skirts and cute tops. Anthropologie for accessories. Outlet malls for workwear. And Target for guilt-free acquisitions.

I'll shop anywhere, as long as I don't pay full retail, but I have some favourites.

Les Ailes de la Mode (because I have their CC with the 10$ monthly rebate)
The wholesalers in the Chabanel garment district, where I can find French and Spanish labels: An'Ge, Fille à Suivre, Sinéquanone, Morgan, etc.
Banana Republic and Mango, whenever possible (coming soon to Montreal, though)

I buy from three boutiques in Rotterdam mostly,and from Net-a-Porter.com.

I have the occasional item from French Connection.

For jeans,I buy Replay.

I hate the chain store stuff here...they only have Zara,Mango,Vero Moda,mexx and H&M worth mentioning,and I think those shops send all their less fashionable stuff here.Plus the fabrics just feel cheap and nasty.

I LOVE LOVE ADORE the British high street and I always stock up (Top Shop,Warehouse,Rover Island,Jigsaw,Whistles... ) When I'm there.I also love Selfridges,especially for shoes and bags.

I am old (compared with some here LOL) and I studied for 10 years for my profession so I feel justified in indulging myself

I don't have whole lot around me...and I don't like driving far away to shop...so it's mostly K-mart (because I work there) and the local mall for me. A little salvo (salvation army) thrown in. I also shop at a store called Gabriel brothers...which has a lot of factory surplus but more factory irregulars...so you gotta hunt. There is a TJ Maxx around here, but I haven't gotten out there yet. Most of my clothes are pretty cheap, but I take pretty good care of them. My biggest clothing purchase in a long time was a pair of limited cargo capris for $30

When I'm in the U.S... I usually buy the really simple/basic shirts, tanks, jeans etc. Japan (Tokyo) is mainly for the not-basic peices... I probably spend more money in Tokyo than in the U.S.

Old Navy
Banana Republic (occasionally)
Online - from Japanese online stores
Random stores around town in Tokyo

I really don't stick to a set of stores other than that... plus, I love finding new stores around town!!!

I hate that 99% of the shops here are so "trend-followy"..ew. For example..no, I do NOT WANT TO BUY A GYPSY SKIRT, give me more choices! But nooOo..every freaking shop has the same, trendy thing.
