Austin, TX Shopping
Where does everyone find clothes in Austin?

My favorite places to shop (or browse, if I can't afford):
By George
Emeralds (losing quality, though)
Neiman Marcus' Last Call
Physical Fit

Which one do you like better: the one on the drag or the one on lamar?
To me, the one on the drag seems kind of small, and it's clothes selection is limited. But a lot of the clothes are casual and wearable and not TERRIBLY expensive.

But, I like the one on lamar better.. it seems more sophisticated and older.. doesn't cater as much to the college students. Plus, I like the actual space a lot.

The employees have been really friendly at both, even though the majority of the time I'm just looking for inspiration and not really something to buy.

I don't like the one on the drag. When I was in college at UT I would stop in but its young people party clothes....and the one on Lamar is more my style. I love it.

the are a few stores here and there that are nice. Blackmail on Congress. There is a store on 360 that is fun but I dont' remember the name at all.

Basically to me, the only place I like is By George.

Actually in the antique store right by By George...by Ben and Jerry's....

there is a cool antique jewelry section...this crazy lady with crazy red hair runs it but I got vintage elephant ivory for like nothing!

I'm not sure about IN Austin, but between Austin and San Antonio, there are some MAD outlets. I was down there in 2001 and felt like I had reached heaven.

I grew up in TX And just interned there for a summer. It was really nice and all. Fun place....if I was forced to leave the Lonestar state...I would probably pick Chicago. Clean NYC and beautiful.

I buy most of my clothes @ Buffalo Exchange, but I love to window shop @ By George, Blackmail (I heard they're going out of business), Urban, Plume, Feathers, and Uncommon Objects.

Going to Austin on Saturday, and can't wait! I haven't been in like 5 years... My whole family lives there and now my sister goes to college there. I can't wait to go shopping. I'm checking out By George for sure.

I'm leaving for Austin tomorrow. I know there are tons of outlets right outside of Austin so I'm looking forward to those.
