So where are 30 somethings shopping?


44 posts in this topic

I wanted to get a goal outfit and realized I don't even know where normal sized women my age shop?! My 30 something friends are plus sized and my 20 something friends buy dresses so short I considered getting one as a shirt. I like girly, slightly bohemian style, similar to anthropologie. But nothing really jumped out at me on their website. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

What sizes are you wearing? I'm still 12-14-16 depending, but belk, Macy's, sometimes torrid, I love Eddie Bauer Bc the lifetime guarantee, Kohls has great options too

Try Forever 21. I am 40 something, but I have two teenage girls who keep me fashionable. They have a lot of boho style tops in their contemporary collection. I love their dresses, too, but they can be a bit short so watch the measurements.

Old navy has cute stuff sometimes too but my dresses have come mostly from torrid the smallest size they carry fits me

My go to store now is Kohls. Between their sales and clearance racks I've bought some very nice things super cheap

Try Urban Outfitters. It was suggested to me when I asked the same question, wanting something similar to Anthropologie but cheaper. I have a boho style as well :)

I left my 30's a while ago - but if you have a Marshall's or TJ Maxx near you - they usually have some great stuff!

The other option is Target - I saw a lot of cute stuff there (even in Plus this year).

I am not in my 30s but I would hesitate to get a goal outfit, mostly because I have NO IDEA what my shape and size will be when I get to goal. I am more inclined to save my money and get something really fabulous that fits me perfectly when I get there.

I think I like the idea of getting the biggest size at a normal size clothing store and just trying it on periodically until it fits and then I know I can shop there :P
