Believe it or not...Lord & Taylor. I was just walking through there 2 days ago (to use the elevator) and noticed that they have some funky clothes...ON SALE!! Doesn't do ME any good because I'm plus size but you'd have a blast in there!

www.alloy.com I like these clothes (well most of them-yes I know it's a teen site, they have lots of sizes though!)
also
www.athleta.com

otherwise I like target for t's and I also like hippie type stuff (I usually use ebay,shop at thrift stores or make my own pre kids)

Blissful Mama to DD-(5), DS-(6) and someone new due in November!

I've gotten some really nice tops from http://bodyc.com/ and they're not expensive either. But these are nice dressier tops that I wear when I'm going out. Otherwise I wear Old Navy stuff usually.

I have gotten a lot of brand new or almost new designer clothes from ebay. By designer, I mean Stella McCartney, Chloe, Joe's Jeans, stuff like that. I never pay more than around $30 for stuff that would retail in the 100's. Pick out the designers you like from a fashion magazine. If you live in a city where they sell this kind of overpriced crap, and if you have time to dick around like this, go to the store and try stuff on so you can be sure of your size. They'll stare daggers at you, but who cares. Then go on ebay and search for that designer. You probably wont' find what you're looking for on the first try, but create a custom search and be patient and it will email you whenever your thing comes up. Just bought a new pair of Joes Jeans today this way! (Best jeans in the world, retail around $200, I paid $26 for this pair.) Been waiting for my size to show up at a low price for over a month, tho. I've also ebayed a lot of stuff that's not designer, but nice stuff I wouldn't be able to afford retail, like Anthropologie, Banana Republic, Kenneth Cole, etc. I try to buy used rather than new, not just for the savings but also for the anti-sweatshop, environmental reasons.

Oh, and speaking of anti-sweatshop, I recently went on an American Apparel spree. (Hey, I just got a full tiem job, I'm feeling a little spendy, ok?) That stuff is SO GREAT! But cuidado, their sizes are all wacky. If you try on a large black shirt and change your mind and decide to buy the large blue one instead, don't assume it's actually the same size as the black one. And their underwear is crazy small.
ps - There's an ebay store called Tuffy McPuggles that has a huge selection of American Apparel at reasonable prices.

For shoes, I adore zappos.com - free return shipping is all I have to say.

Yknow, I never used to care about these things very much until I moved to NYC. *sigh* I'm back in the land of polar fleece and birkenstocks now, but that city ruined me forever.

Try this if you don't want to shop in person... http://www.lordandtaylor.com/gifts/O...g/LT?Dsp=1&c=1
I just looked at the website and they just don't seem to have the cool styles that I saw in the store.

Another J Jill lover. I think you can call a store w/your order and get a flat rate shipping of $5. If you order right from their website it'll be more.

If you are a Tee and Jeans kind of girl (like me),

www.shipshapeclothing.com

ShipShape is a sweatshop-free mother and daughter company, and donates a portion of some product proceeds to save Manatees .

www.buyolympia.com

Buyolympia isn't all clothing, you have to sort through to find it, but all the merchandise is amazing. They have the amazing Sarah Utter "Reading is Sexy" Tee shirt. Oooh-la-la!

I buy everything else at thrift stores or on ebay. I have actually purchased some great Anthroplogie items on ebay for phenomenal prices!
