Just wondering where/how others shop for good looking stuff. I'm going on vacation and need a few cute dresses and at least 2 pairs of shorts. Any suggestions?

Hi,
Don't know you're located --but I shop at Catherine's & Irene's
both are very nice stores and have lots of nice things. Irene's is alittle more expensive.
Also Catherine's is online...not sure about Irene's
Hope this helps some..

you can shop at "the Avenue" on line, most of their clothes are casual or Lane Bryant on line, just in case you don't have these stores near you.

CJ Banks- they're having a summer sale right now and if you enter your email they will send you a coupon for 10.00 off your first order. they have some pretty good prices and nice styles. If you can wear an extra large or large Christopher and Banks is the same company, both online and they have stores. Good luck and have fun on Vacation!

Lane Bryant....they also have a virtual model you can setup to look like you or your alter ego Wink - do you have Cotton Ginny, Pennington's or Addition Elle?

If you're not near one in the MD/PA area, Boscov's online has great clothes for us "women".
