I'm just a little curious about where everyone shops for clothes at. So if you don't mind, let's talk about it! lol

This isn't just a completely random topic, if you're wondering. I got to go shopping for all of my clothes today (by myself! :eek: ) and it's the first time I've liked what I've gotten. Probably because my mom wasn't there to talk me out of buying a pair of jeans or a shirt. ;)

I've recently started shopping for clothes at Old Navy.
I've gotten some blouses, a hooded sweater and jeans there.
I really like the choice of stuff they have there and most of the materials they use are so soft and comfortable.
If it ain't comfortable...I won't wear it. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I have a weakness for clothes and shoes. I hit the summer sales really hard: Monsoon, John Lewis and Selfridges. But Pea****'s is good, do good shirts and casuals.

It was just dumb luck for me that I went there the day at all jeans at Expressmen were on sale for 50% off. lol

Hmm clothes for me? I like Banana republic (although I only get sale items) Oh and Old Navy is pretty good too! I think guys look hot in Gap. I always like the things at Guess and the models are so *yummy* but they are too pricey for me most of the time. I'm a varied shopper. Aldo has really nice bags and boots usually. I'm a knee high leather boots kinda gal. Recently I bought a sexy little tank at Jacob and they seem to have very good quality clothes.

My 'style' would have to be 'odernizd maiden style' Ya know like clothes that are similar to that whole knights and dragons time of age. No...I don't dress weird! It's all in the details. Vintage earings, Corset-like tops, Leather lace up boots, embroidered jeans... Very elegant and sleek. I also have this fetish for Red bags. And cool looking leather jackets like the one that Mila Jovovich wore in Resident Evil.

Well there is my two cents. Rogue http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/mischievous.gif

I despise clothes shopping but it is a neccessary evil! I shop in no place in particular. I don't condemn anyone here but I don't believe in wearing brand names, as they are neither symbolic nor part of who I am. I don't feel part of the culture I'm supposed to be part of here and so I don't want to dress like some desperate role player.

Instead, I dress how I feel-amorphous and withoout form, shifting to fit an uncertainty. I am always wearing a psychological mask so why should I wear a clothing one too? I get abuse about it but then why should I care? I hope it makes sense. :)I am a happy person and I have fun living my way of life. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I often wear a distinctive "Mind Out For Mental Health" tag somewhere on me http://www.mindout.net, sometimes an elastic band decorated with marker pen "leopard spots," a bracelet with a microchip key and sometimes other jewellery. The homemade jewellery has significance to me personally. However, my prized jewellery is gold and silver like anyone else here. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I dress in jeans/shorts and T-shirts but always get my casual shoes from Millets. I love hiking boots but despise trainers on my own feet. The only things close to brands I wear are TR things and I love T-shirts with fun messages on. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Its nice too see that you are not prepared to be asheep like the rest of them you want to stand out, a leader perhaps.

Me I just ware what is comfortable, no labels no gimmicks. Why sould I pay to advertise someone elses product.

whatever is in my budget and is comfortable. i love all the decades of dress from the 20's to the millenium. I shop at Wal-mart, but will not shop at a mall. I do not catalogue shop either. I have a weird size and hard to find.

My wedding dress is from the 1920's, it is blue irredescent. (Like the inside of a conch shell)
It is fitting, with straps and flows down to the floor with a beautiful swirl at the bottom. i am taking out the petti coat. I found it at a vintage store near me.

Mainly, i wear what is comfortable and appropriate for the occassion. Big t shirt and sleeping pants for hanging out at home, and jeans and a fleece for going to a fire. At work, the suit deal. Darn them skirts. i do, however, have a clog/boot fetish something fierce. Any suggestions?

Has it ever occorred to people who only swear by shopping in second-hand stores that others who prefer to shop in first-hand stores, so to call them, might actually just feel comfortable that way and do not really care about showing a 'label'? I know for a fact that my labels are sewn inside my collars and not on my back.

What are the best stores to shop for clothes and boots in the London area????
I'm leaving for England next week...September 11th to be precise. Haven't been there in too many years.
Anyone interested in meeting me while I'm there???
PM me if you are.
Tina

Dear Tina, it just totally depends on what sort of boots you want and what your budget is. You can find reasonable stuff, both in terms of budget and in terms of trendiness, in Oxford Street and Regents Street and Carnaby Street. Of course any big department store will be good as well, Selfridges in Oxford Street in particular gives you the best of both worlds, with relatively cheap stuff like TopShop in there and also top high range like Dior and Gucci and similar. If you are interested in very expensive boots, head down to Knightsbridge, Chelsea, Sloane Street, and South Molton Street, New Bond Street and Bond Street. Fenwick in Bond Street can be reasonable though, and it sells trendy pieces and also relatively cheap ones. I always say 'relatively' because you cannot exactly expect to snap up boots for 10.00 in central London BUT it is true that you can find quirky little stores in Camden and quirky second hand stores in Chelsea south that do stock great stuff at smaller prices. Enjoy yourself!!!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

I dunno how to post a quote so I'll just direct this to you.

Steph Croft: Concering your post on labels. right on! I feel that clothes do not take over my life at all. Even though I may shop at brand name places, I don't do it to hide the real me. I shop at those places cause their style fits with the person who I am.

To those of you who are against brand names: I must commend you on not being sucked into their mold. It's true that clothing has a way of identifying who you are and that by buying clothes just because of their brand. You buy into their image and lose a part of yourself.
