Re: Where do you buy your office clothes??

I used to buy clothes at both TJMax and Marshalls Dress for less. We don't have either of those stores here now though....bummer! I'd say Macy's has good clearances and especially if you have a Macy's card and get the coupons in the mail. I also shop sales at Gap, Express, NY & Company.....hmmmm some others too, but can't remember right now. Basically, browse the clearance racks of various mall stores or online end-of-season sales.

Re: Where do you buy your office clothes??

I was asking the same question!! Are there any real small mama's out there? I can't fit into most of the stores mentioned. I am not petite either, I have a 32"inseam. I don't to wear juniors clothes too which is usually all I can find that fits. I need very modest but trendy clothes as I want to cover up my tattoos TIA!!

Have you tried the Goodwill?? I was able to find some really cute and even trendy things there for cheap. They have all their sweaters for $1. I got a bunch. I figure in the summer I freeze in the AC. That would help with the tattoos as well. I got a bunch of dress pants for $2.99 each. I had to try on about 20 pairs to buy 6, but it was worth it. And remember that the stores like to trick us into thinking we're smaller then we are so I had to buy a size bigger at the goodwill then I did at TJ max. It's crazy, but they really do keep changing the sizes each year.

Re: Where do you buy your office clothes??

I've shopped Dress Barn, JCP, Kohls - and I wear plus sizes, business casual office environment. The problem I have with Old Navy is no plus sizes are in stores near me so I end up ordering online then returning.

I would definitely get a couple good quality pairs of pants then mix in cardigans/blouses with some trendy jewelry. Pants get the worst of the wear anyway.

Re: Where do you buy your office clothes??

I'm a Goodwill girl myself. I haven't bought any clothing from any other store since I was in college! It also helps that I live in a semi-rich neighborhood and can find many nice brand name things there. I also wanted to say, "Go Pens!"

Woo Hoo!! Love my Pens!!

Seriously missing Sid.


Back to the topic at hand. lol I may be wearing scrub tops for awhile at work. Today my office was so hot I couldn't stand it. I'm sure they wont be turning on the AC for awhile, so scrub tops will be cooler then dress shirts with lab coats over them. lol And if I do get cold I always leave a lab coat on my chair.
