Zappos!!!!!! They list the inseams of denim & pants and the search function for shoes rocks. Being a size 12 in shoes, I started using them over 10 years ago when it came to looking for shoes. Now I buy some of my denim and other clothes from them.

Plus they have an iPhone app which means I can shop anywhere.

If your daughters are on the younger side, have them check out Alloy.com

^^I LOVE Zappos'!!!! Their customer service and return policy is UNMATCHED!!! However, do shop around before making a purchase with them. I have found many shoes a lot cheaper than Zappos on many occasions! i.e. Nordstrom

Size 12?! You must be tall!! My size is so darn popular so it sells out FAST!!!

WORD!

I love Anthropologie. In case you didn't know, they are having a super kickass Black Friday sale -- An extra 50% off before 11am, both online and in store! You don't even want to know how hard I am going to hit up that sale. I don't shop there often because yes, it is pricey, but they rock my socks.

My shopping habits are seriously all over the place. In order of shopping frequency:
  • Macy*s - I feel like a jerk putting that little asterisk there, but that's how they spell it!
  • Nordstrom Rack
  • Marshalls - Hey, a gal likes sales.
  • Old Navy
  • Zappos - Free overnight shipping for VIP. Holla!
  • Levi.com
  • H&M
  • Ann Taylor
  • Forever 21 - I am getting entirely too old for their cutesy/flimsy clothing, but they are good for some things.
  • Anthropologie
  • Amazon.com
  • Filene's Basement - I almost never shop here because their sales are weak sauce, but their going out of business sale is the best thing that ever happened to me. Born boots for $85? Yes!
The rest are just stores I randomly wander into because they were there, or I saw something pretty in the window. So now y'all know where to get me gift certificates to.

JCPenney, Kohl's, Dillard's, Sears and Macy's.

But I only go shopping when I go out of out town since we only have a few clothing stores where I live. All we have are Sears, Kmart and Ross.

I buy most of my clothes on-line:

-Old Navy
-Gap
- occasionally Banana Republic
- Ann Taylor LOFT
- Nordstrom
- Macy's
- Target
- The Limited (for their dress slacks)
- Zappos

For other stuff:
-amazon
- various beauty product websites

I like to shop at places with free shipping and those that have stores I can do returns to for free.

Also zappos because returns are free.

There is one good consignment shop near me and a Goodwill with good quality stuff.

I also shop Ebay in the spring/summer for skirts because the sizing is easy to get correct on those.

Most of my shopping is online (due to the fact that I'm a good hour away from anything decent and I don't like driving long distances -- yep, I'm surrounded by dirt, lots.):

UO
Levi's
Gap (although their recent stuff is sucking a lot, new creative director/buyer (whatever it was called) took over and it SHOWS!)
JCrew

Shoes: mostly Adidas and Converse.

How long does it usually take for your stuff to come when you order them online?
