    Default Shopping Day!!

    I am taking a much needed vacation day on Friday. I am going to the Mall, getting my hair cut and tires rotated (Sears does it free if you buy your tires there, so keep that in mind next time you get a flat - the dealership wanted to charge $50!!) and ... getting some NEW CLOTHES!!!

    I don't know how much new clothes I am going to get - maybe just a couple of tops and a couple pairs of capris. My job now is much more casual than the job I had last year so I don't have to wear a suit every day and most of my closet consists of skirted suits.

    Where do you guys suggest I shop? New York and Company? Macy's? I'm not thin or anything, so I can't shop at the stores that sell primarily Junior sizes.

    my favorite stores lately are Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, French Connection and Rhuel. I love ShopBop and I have to shop primarily on there since I live in the middle of no-where.

    i think you should try Express. they always have really cute clothes there at affordable prices. and you shouldn't have any problems finding sizes or anything like that. sometimes, i fit comfortably in a small top(and that is usually never possible with the twins, LOL). so, i say go to Express and see if you lke anything there!

    oh, and you also might want to try American Eagle...sometimes they have cute casual things there. ha, i should take my own advice and stop by because i haven't gone to that store for a little while...

    hope that helps a bit and let us know what you get!!!

    Thanks...American eagle is a little TOO casual...except on Fridays where anything goes except for sweats.

    Think khakis and polos or nice blouses...Business casual. I am so used to wearing suits that it freaks me out going to work in a pair of dockers and a 3/4 sleeved tee and my Coach tennies - but I am on the west facing side of the office complex and the outer walls are glass and so it's like an oven come sun down...ick.

    I'll post pics after I go...I hope I don't get out and see a bag and blow all my money on a bag instead of much needed clothing!

    If you have an H&M near you you should check that out. They have a ton of things and are relatively inexpensive.

    Unfortunately I am in Memphis, not Nashville now. Nashville has great shopping but I HAVE to go this weekend because they are having a sales tax holiday, so I will automatically save 9.25% just by not having to pay sales taxes! Memphis is a little more urban, and a little less

    Taxes are only lifted on certain items, such as clothing and computers. I will prob hit Macy's, Express, The Limited, Dillard's, and whatever catches my eye as I walk through the mall. I am on a limited budget, and my husband is going with me so...I'll probably be only able to get a couple of shirts and maybe a pair of pants or two. NO shoes, no purse...

    Tennessee has high sales tax because there are no income taxes ... in some parts it is lower, but in the big cities like Memphis/Nashville it is that high.

    In Arkansas it's 8.125%...I used to go across the bridge when in Memphis to get my groceries!

    Hey incase anyone was curious, I posted my finds in the "what did you buy today" thread...

    What did you buy today?

    I admit nothing was designer, but I like to save my hard earned cash for fab handbags.
