Because of prom, there has been a lot of talk among my students concerning clothes and where to shop. Plus, a group of my students is involved in a survey about shopping habits, especially involving the mall. So, the question has been: where do you shop?
I rarely shop at our local malls, but I do like to go to some of the large regional malls when I go out of town. There are certain shops I always go into, Nordstroms and Talbots being the main two. Almost all of my clothes, and definitely my newer clothes, come from these stores. Liz Claiborne, at one time, had a shop for larger sizes called Elizabeth. I bought many pants there that I still wear. Same thing with some pants I bought 15+ years ago at JC Penney. Those pants just keep going and going.
The Elizabeth stores closed and I cannot even find that brand at stores like Nordstroms who carry Liz Claiborne, which is sort of disappearing too. I haven’t been to a JC Penney store in years but maybe I should. A blogger friend of mine was wearing some really cute sandals in one of her pictures, and when I asked about them, she said JCP.
The kids who are doing the mall survey will get $20 to spend as they wish. Wonder where that will be?
