Thanks to all of you who left comments and questions about Fashion Week. I hope to cover lots of topics this week, and am delighted that you'll be joining me.
I received several questions about where I shop. I think the real question should be....where don't I shop!
Really, I "shop" for clothes in two different ways.
There's the "shopping" without the buying, which I do a lot. I do it so I can see what the styles and trends are for any given season.
Then there's the "shopping" with the buying, once I get my lists and thoughts together and figure out what I want.
I tend to stick with classic clothes and more trendy accessories (shoes, jewelry and handbags).
I tend to spend more for something I know will last for years (coats, suits) and less for things that I may get tired of or won't last either due to trendiness or too much wear. (Does anyone else throw out white t-shirts after a summer of hard wear?)
All that being said, the stores I frequent the most for a wide variety of clothing are JCrew, Banana Republic, the Gap, and Target. I would imagine most of you shop at least one or two of those stores quite often yourself.
I've put together a spreadsheet of all my favorite stores, the items I like in each, and other little tips and tricks I've gleaned over the years.
If you'd like me to email it to you, leave me a comment with your email address and I'll be happy to share.
Come back tomorrow where I'll talk about the perfect white shirt and other fashionable stuff....
