We all have different circumstances, preferences, and stores near us that have the kinds of clothes we love to buy. I was browsing the internet for some new ideas on clothes and styles today, and realized that I only know of a couple stores. I'd like to expand my horizons, so here are a few questions for you guys:1. How old are you? Male/female? This isn't mandatory, but I'd like an idea of your demographics. 2. What's your favorite place to shop for clothes? Do you shop online or at the store? 3. What are some other clothing stores you frequent?For the record, I'm 21, and tend to shop through various local thrift stores, with the occasional stop at Kohl's. I'd like to be able to afford the designer clothes fresh off the racks, but since I can't, well, I have to make do with hand-me-downs for now. What about you?

I buy most of clothes online. I don't like going out and about to shop. I can have everything in front of me on the computer screen. And it's faster that way too. 1.I'm almost 22 and I"m a dude. 2.I shop mostly online. 3. CCS (skateboarding clothes), Pacsun, The Gap, American Eagle, Target, Walmart

I'm not really fond of shopping for the most part either, to be honest. But once in a while you have to, because sizing on things can be tricky, at least when it comes to girl's clothes. Anyway, thanks for replying!

I am a 42 year old female. Im from the northeast part of PA. I like shopping at thrift stores as you never know what you will find. Also having 5 kids at home saving some here and there helps out. I used to shop on line more then I do now, found that if I hit the thrift or dollar stores I can do better with the price of postage. I also dont like shopping so I dont go that often either. I have never been a designer label freak and have luckily handed that down to my kids for the most part. My oldest at home is a lot like me where she will tell everyone what a good deal she got on a pair of jeans or whatever.

I grew up not liking designer labels, but nowadays I sort of wish I knew about them, because some of the clothes are kind of nice... you know, as a way to treat myself or something. *Shrugs* Thanks for sharing!

I am 36 years old. I am a female. I am a southern girl. Currently my favorite place to shop for clothes are thrift stores. We have a thrift store close by that sells all of their clothes for $1 a piece, even if they are new with tags still on them. Each time I go there it is like a treasure hunt. So much fun! I do not shop online for clothes very much. I like to be able to try clothes on before I buy them, especially pants, jeans, shorts, etc. The only online place that I bought from a lot was QVC online. I love their Denim & Co. line of clothes. You can find a lot of the Denim & Co. clothes on Ebay very cheap now so I do not order off of QVC much anymore. As far as stores, I enjoy shopping at T.J. Maxx and Ross Stores (they are discount type stores) and I like Kohl's too. As a stay at home Mom, my big concern these days is to be comfortable but still look nice too.
