    Very interesting info!

    I consider myself to be fashionable, chic, whatever...yet, I simply adore American Eagle. I'm still a young woman in my early twenties, and their styles appeal to me (favorites include their form fitting halters, long jeans that make my butt look good, and their slim, tight, low-cut shirts for clubbin).

    A close runner up in my book is Express. They have a lot of going-out type tops too, although I do find their spring collection to be quite bland this year.

    Are there two sections of Zara? I went into a store one day (for the FIRST time! I guess they don't have them in Northern California...?) in Georgetown and noticed that there appeared to be a 'younger' or more contemporary section...? I don't think any of their clothes fit me, but they're so cute :(

    Zara has up to size adult 14. You have to look well. If the Zara's in the states are as disorganized as the Zaras in Montreal then it can take a while to find the right size.

    My friend is curvy and it took her about 20 minutes to find the pants she wanted in size 12. Just look really hard :flower:

    There are also two sections at my local Zara as well. I've noticed that the main section has more business-like styles and other is more like street wear. The sizes appear to be about the same though. :flower:

    I love the J. Crew tees. I found one type of shirt that fit perfectly so I ordered 14 of them by mail. All different colors :blush:

    Like Leyla said. It's all about how you wear your clothes.

    OMG how come nobody has mentioned Club Monaco? There stuff is really nice and well made. Sometimes you cant tell the diference between them and some of the more expensive brands out there.
