I use to be really really into Hot Topic as well before it became main stream and more stomp aimed. I can occasionally find something I like there, but mostly I shop online.

I usually stick with thrift shops, but I do occasionally make my own cloths or check the clearance section of HT.

Express mostly (I know, I know, but I can mix and match stuff there) and Target for my workout clothes. Also Lucky Jeans and vintage stores when I have the money. Urban Outfiters, H&M, Forever 21, Dress Barn has a lot of cute work dresses.

My sport is your sport's punishment! :)

pinupgirlclothing.com is AMAZING - their Marilyn 1-piece swimsuit is TO DIE FOR!! I also shop at Urban Outfitters for choice items, but I mostly get stuff locally to support some friends who have boutiques in my town.

I wish we had an H&M here but unfortunately we don't. I lovelovelove Target. I also love New York & Co. and Express - but definitely the clearance racks because I'm cheap. :) I love to get fun t-shirts down at the vintage stores in Austin though!

I'm cheap, so I do the clearance racks for Torrid & Target and then alter clothing from thrift stores.

There isn't a whole lot in my area sadly, the closest place to me is Wally world. Once and while I can find jeans or a nice plain shirt there.

I do a lot of shopping online: Ebay, Baby Girl Boutique, Pinup Girl Clothing

If i do feel like driving 30+ minutes out I don't mind Old Navy, the thrifty store, H&M, orand American eagle.

I work in a vintage shop, so lot of my clothes are from vintage/charity shops/thrift stores and what-not and I seem to get my friends giving me their old clothes, which is awesome! Sometimes I might buy from e-Bay. I alter a lot of my clothing as well.

I also shop in a couple of independant 'alternative' shops/boutiques on occasion.

I cut up and re-sew most of my clothes anyway, so I mostly stick to thrift stores. For jeans, t-shirts, tanks, and warmer long-sleeves I have to admit to occasionally selling out utterly and rocking the Target clearance racks. Also, Carharrts at Sears and Academy. Those things last FOREVER.

Definitely have to be creative when you are plus sized...I try to keep my eye out and try things on, even if they are a size smaller than what I use, sometimes it can still look good.
I browse vintage at Etsy, as well as some of the handmade dress designers there. When it comes to purchasing clothes, I buy a lot at H&M. I also think Target, Torrid, and Dorothy Perkins (UK) have a lot of cute stuff!

I'm in Toronto Ontario and we have a very cool store here called Play Dead, they are actually moving to LA soon though... It's all hand made clothes and they put on alot of awesome events as well. They have been a part of numerous Fashion Shows lately too. I just recently got a t-shirt dress from there to wear to a wedding. Yes I was very punked out at the wedding but I matched my fiance perfect cuz he had a suite customely made for him from the same store, studs and all. Actually now that I think of it they have a sale going on....

i live in l.a. so two words the alleys. I mean it has some cool stuff and at cooler prices... most of the time. theyre getting a bit popular moreso than before but still a bargain at times. Target anf Walmart are also a great place. Out of the closet, buffalo exchange where they buy your clothes or trade you. jet rag. the $1 sale on sunday mornings. For vintage gowns and party dresses or any kind of dresses shareen vintage or www.shareenvintage.com and forever 21 and h&m. can't wait till i drop 20 pounds so i can start shopping there again.

I do have a bit of a hard time finding clothes that fit me right but I'm a fan of Target and Old Navy. Other than thrifting, if I dig, I can find things that fit my personality (and my wallet).

I LOVE LOVE ZUMIEZ!!! This semester when i go shopping i'll probably shop there, i find jeans at delia's or american eagle (they have good jeans, i know that it's shocking) but jeans are always hard to find so when you find a pair you stick with it. However, hoping to drop some sizes that way i can get into some skinny jeans :P also H&M and Gadzooks has some real cute outifts :) happy shopping!

Pretty much all I wear is jeans and t-shirts, which I have tons of. For work-type clothes, I really like New YOrk & Co. I got a super hot little black dress at Dress Barn - they used to have what seemed like old lady clothes last time I went years ago, but now they have some cute stuff!

My Baby Jo
Stop Staring
Trashy Diva
8 Ball (webstore)
Starlets and Harlets
Annabelle’s Clothing
Ebay
Whirling Turban

Etc…

In Stores I love:
Thrift Stores (not as much fun now as in the mid to late 90’s when you could find amazing vintage for $3)

Forever 21 (come on, cheap, cute, and comfortable)

Papaya (ghetto store. But can find cute tops and cardigans)

DSW Shoes

Target (I seriously *heart* this store)

Hot Topic (over-priced-crappy-quality clothes/shoes, but every once in a blue moon they’ll have something cute)

Nordstrom’s
Macy’s

Van’s

Local Austin Stores:
Parts and Labour
Uncommon Objects
New Bohemia

I'm a thrifty kinda gal, 90% of my wardrobe is thrifted, shoes included. I just recently (size, finally, permitting) started checking out some cheesy mall stores. Forever 21, (shut up.. I know ), is one.

i liked Hot Topic as well.. I only buy stuff if it is really a stretch from their mainstreamed clothing lines.

I also shop at Penney's. Sometimes you can find really cute dress clothes there for the office.

I would love to thrift shop but everything that i want is not in my size =( but it will be damn it! lol

Another place I want to shop is in LA. I went last weekend down Melrose and I loved what I saw in the windows.. So to celebrate, when i get thin, I am going to road trip it there and treat myself

It's not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something.

I used to be really into Hot Topic but got turned off when I bought a pair of $50 pants that got wrecked after being casually worn(meaning not moshing in them!)once. Occasionally I go buy tops there but no more pants.

Thrift shop are really great if you have some time and a little skill in sewing! HotRodVooDoo.com is a place I really love!

As cheesy as it sounds I love Hot Topic. They have some stupid stuff but I always find something good when I go. My other favorites are H&M and Trash and Vaudeville. I wish I had the patients for thrift stores but I get aggravated after 10 minutes.

Thrift stores, thrift stores, and more thrift stores! Every once in a blue moon Macy's will have something on clearance that I like too. I get my wacky socks from Target. (Life's too short for boring socks.)

I liked hot topic before it was as mainstream as it is now. It is fairly affordable. Otherwise I shop at mervyns b/c i get an employee discount and it is the only local store for clothes.

I like consignment shops now that I can actually fit into some stuff they have there. Used to shop exclusively at goodwill, etc., when I was thin. Now I really like Dillards, though I mostly wear levis and t-shirts. I'm also trying not to shop to save money and motivate for weight loss, as I have so many sizes to slim down into accumulated and I need to get rid of stuff!
