I like Target clothes more than Walmart. Walmart is not very fashion forward. I probably have a bias, since Walmart is a little far for me. And there are 2 closer Targets. I am more likely to be passing the Targets than the Walmart.

Sears, is surprisingly good. I hadn't been there in forever. But I had some time to kill one day, and I decided to head in and see what they had. I liked the Uk Style line by French Connection, and about 1/3 of the things in the Kardashian Collection surprisingly.

I love Target for basics, especially when it comes to buying white shirts for the summer.

In my personal opinion, what you said is not an argument for Express, its an argument against women in their 20s.

I just turned 29 and I absolutely hate Express with passion, while I loved it when I was in my late teens (frankly, because I didn't know any better than wearing a cheap polo with a big lion on it). I hated AE and A&F even in my late teens LOL.

lets just agree to disagree and please dont even get me started on Walmart, it is just advocating for settling for mediocrity. believe me, I am not one of those "I wear only Armani" snobs, but for the love of god, dont advocate for Walmart.

So most women in their 20's don't know any better?

It's just clothing. I can't get as fired up as you over clothing. I'll save that energy and passion for things with depth like education and family.


Honestly if Walmart and Target work for you, shop there. I have 2 pairs of yoga pants for target I have had for 3 years and they are barely faded and still have a lot of life in them.

I'm not above shopping at these places and clearly most of the United States isn't either.

Old Navy is the same way, but there's more of them so at least the intensity of the annoyingness isn't as bad as it is in a joint like H&M.
Oh wow.

You have a social satirist's eye for detail, no mistaking it. I congratulate you.

It's called 'herding the sheep'. H&M and similarly-marketed stores are merely corrals. It won't be long and H&M will fall out of fashion and the herd will be corraled somewhere else new and shiny.

When I was younger, I lived on a whitetailed deer farm during weekends and summers. We would herd deer through 'fence tunnels' to get them where we wanted and needed them. In regard to marketing concepts, this is how I see those running the show treating consumers. It's brilliant.

You're one pretentious Debbie downer. People don't go shopping to find enlightenment, it's just fun. No need to act like youre the star of a classic Apple commercial.
