Where do you shop?
Are you one of the lucky few who are fortunate enough to shop at big-name-labels, like Prada? Or do you do your shopping at the local mall? Do have a secret vintage shop that nobody else knows about?

Where do you shop?

Places I shop at (and do buy stuff) : Gap, Old Navy, Zara, Bedo, Space FB, Club Monaco.

Of course I only buy selected stuff from the store. Like Old Navy and Gap, I don't like most of there stuff, but I always find once in a while one thing in the store that suits my taste.

Well, I shop at Prada and 10 Corso Como when I'm in Milano, as well as department stores like Coin and la Rinascente. Yoox.com can be good sometimes, I like outlets a lot. I also like finding local designers, sometimes you find some great stuff! 2nd hand is a passion of mine as well, you can stumble upon such great pieces at ridiculous prices!

I have also bought some stuff at LV and Gucci; I think they're sort of tacky labels but I liked what I found.

My shopping budget may be a bit high compared to a poor students, but I'm a discriminate shopper still on a budget. I pick and choose carefully, I want quality and styles that'll last for years. Not necessarily bland styles, but more "not obviously trendy".

I shop at Saks, Nordstrom, Marshalls for work, and I adore outlets.
I have made great purchases at consignment shops near by.

Most of my budget goes to purses, specifically LV. But I have bought at Burberry, Dior, and other South Coast Plaza stores.

I shop pretty much everywhere. It depends on what I'm looking for. However I usually only go to the big designers for bags and accessories, not for clothes. I get sick of my clothes easily so I don't like spending outrageous amounts of money on them, unless it's something I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of. I like H&M for the random trendy pieces that I know will probably be tired of in a month. For jeans I have been digging American Eagle Outfitters lately because their jeans just fit me perfectly and they have a petite length which I need because I have short legs. As for department stores, I am in love with Nordstrom. I love the stuff they have. Plus I can go in there looking like crap if I want to and not worry about getting nasty looks from the pretentious SAs and being followed as if to make sure I don't touch anything, unlike some of the other upscale New York department stores... not mentioning any names..

I pretty much shop everywhere lol. I'll shop at a designer boutique/store if I have a great paycheck and I really want something from there. But most of time, I shop online, the mall, and thrift stores.

I want, no, I NEED, a great vintage shop around here. Where I live- there is one retail shop, but it carries clothes from normal stores that are only one-year old. I have heard a lot about Screaming Mimi's, mainly from TV, and would like a shop somewhat like that one...

Screaming Mimi's has some really awesome stuff sometimes. (They had these crazy gold lamé MC Hammer pants last time I was there ) Unfortunately it can also be rather expensive for what it is. Semi-crappy tshirts are $50 when you might find the same exact thing at Salvation Army for $4.
