Has anyone ever shopped at an expensive store like Saks Fifth Avenue or Neiman Marcus and if so was it worth it? Was their products worth the price?

I haven't really, there are a few stores that I shop at that are a bit pricy comapred to most places but not as extreem as the ones you mentioned. I guess it is worth it as long as you look good. What I don't get is those places like ambercromie that sell 50$ t-shirts and crazy stuff like that. I was over my nephews the other day and noticed that his jeans were torn and covered in holes, when I asked him about them he said he bought them that way. I can't believe his mothers lets him dress like that, let alone pay hundreds of$ to dress like that.

I went shopping with my aunt and those are the kind of places she shops at. I did find a few things on sale and they were still alittle over my budget but I ended up giving in to one shirt. Did I think it washed better then a walmart shirt? NO Did I think it lasted longer then a walmart shirt? NO Would I spend the money again? NO

YES! I totally loved it. Once you've seen the quality of their things you will always want them. Too bad we can't afford to shop there all the time. The stores are so pretty and the salespeople are actually helpful. It is very much worth going to the store just to see it. You will feel so special, like a princess. You will notice a big difference in the quality of clothes.

I agree with the last post, the outlet stores are much better and you get the same products. However, a lot of the outlet stores don't have my size or styles that I like. I haven't shopped at the more expensive stores recently, but when I have, it's always been pleasant shopping experience. They usually have fantastic service and will go out of their way for you. And, often, the clothes fit very well and are my size as I am pretty tall. But, even then, many will offer tailoring. But, to say that it is worth spending more for if you are just getting everyday clothes or items, then I would say no. These are great stores to go to if you have a special occasion to buy for and are difficult to fit, but I wouldn't shop there for a pair of jeans or a t-shirt.
