I'm 43 and love Chico's, Old Navy (Sweetheart jeans!), Coldwater Creek, Land's End, LL Bean, and Tommy Bahama...and anything in between all that (boutique, private label)! Don't like my clothes stuffy, I think they call what I like "resort chic" with a Texas flair! Comfy and flattering is the name of the game. I'm 5'10" and a regular size 16. Working on a 14...maybe by summer!

I get my clothes from several different places...

Macy's
Victoria's Secret (catalog)
Cache
Boston Proper
PZI Jeans
Guess
The Gap

Though because I spend most of my time in the gym, a lot of my wardrobe consists of gym type gear...yoga pants, Nike leggings, etc...

Considering the stores that you listed I would take that as a compliment. Have some respect...its Chanel!

This thread has me feeling some type of way. I'm 19 and I love a lot of these stores. But then again, I'm told I dress very classy. But then AGAIN, people always think I'm 24-ish...

Oh, gosh...

Well I'm in the "over 50" crowd and sears and amazon.com clothes make me happy. I never seem to find anything appropriately aged that fit me correctly in specialty name brand stores.

Oooooh, it's Chanel! Well la de effin' da.

I'd rather wear chez Wally World myself, but to each her own, I suppose.

My favorite stores are Chicos, Dillards, Nordstrom, and for quick, cheap, trendy stuff Ross. For shoes, I love Born, Dansko, and Antonio Melani. For specific brands, I really like Antonio Melani, Michael Kors, and Sharon Young.

I'm 51. And I like to dress casually but elegantly if that makes sense.
