What clothing stores do you frequent?

I realise this will vary a ton by geography but I swear the only brick and mortar stores I actually buy clothes at are Bluenotes, Sears, and very occasionally The Gap.

Where I tend to go the most:
H&M (I think at least half of my wardrobe is H&M, I heart them)
Primark (jackets, shoes, sunglasses, bags etc., occasionally clothes)
Zara (often a bit too expensive, but I love it)
Oasis (a cute dress here and there)
Warehouse

The rest is probably second hand and random brands where I don't buy more than one thing.

There's a Topshop opening in New York! For some reason, I've stupidly excited even though whenever I've been there, I didn't find anything I wanted to buy. I blame the high Euro/Pound.

I pretty much only shop at Loehmann's (http://www.loehmanns.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) for new clothes, it's kind of like a strenuous treasure hunt, but I usually find really good things. I've also been known to buy some things from H&M, although their clothes don't last very long. Otherwise, I mostly shop at second-hand places like Buffalo Exchange or Goodwill...although the Goodwills out in the 'burbs are better than in the city.

H&M and New Look seem to be most common in my wardrobe, but I'm so picky that I shop around tons and buy odd bits from many other places. Some of my favourite clothes have been bought on holiday - I have a gorgeous top from Bluenotes in Toronto, and another top I love from Dillards in San Antonio.

I used to buy loads from Dorothy Perkins, but it's shite now. I swore by their jeans but the sizing's gone all weird, and they seem unable to sell much else but cheap T shirts and vests in various colours, and everything else is frilly to fuck, or shiny. I don't do frilly or shiny!

No one should do shiny.

My clothes mostly come from Target or the Gap. I'm a fashion renegade.

I find it funny that many people are so against H&M's quality. Out of the stuff that I have kept for the longest time because of great quality there's been at least 80% H&M in there. I think what is important is always checking the labels for which materials the item is made of instead. I wouldn't buy anything without knowing what it was made of, I think.
