Forever21
Good cheap basics (and accessories) and the price of shipping from the US means I *have* to buy a lot to make it worthwhile.

At least that's what I tell myself.

When I buy clothing, it is almost always at HolyClothing. I have also just discovered FairySteps - though, I can't afford to shop there...

Modcloth is my absolute favourite! Shipping is costly, so I also wait and buy a few things at once to make it worthwhile. The review system is great, really helps you minimise the risk of buying online.

ASOS, Birdsnest and Free People.  Though I fear that FP is too groovy for this middle aged cow.   Sad face.

Oh who says you can't be 37 and wear that stuff :-D Isn't that the power of fashion - it is about wearing something that is perfect for your body shape right? No-one thinks I'm 37... in fact I was talking to a Mum in the playground who said 'Oh you're young so.... ' and turns out she thought I was early twenties haha. So wear it and feel good!!! I no longer give a damn what I 'should' wear in my late thirties; I just wear what suits my personality and lifestyle and me. You should too! Be bold and courageous. If I had the money - I ADORE this dress: http://www.freepeople.com/clothes-dresses/...ck-magic-dress/

yay!  thanks everyone for your ideas.  I've had a chance to check out modcloth - right up my alley.

Just because I'm still in shock - Country Road.

I found some light weight, long pants for DD in store but they didn't have any left in her size.  The sales assistant checked on the computer and there were none left in any of the other stores I could get to that day.

So, the next morning at home, I thought I'd check online and they were still available in both plain colours.  I placed the order and had it shipped to Mum's because she's in a capital city.  

They were delivered the same day!!!!!

I'm still in shock LOL.  Not only did they offer sun smart summer wear, but the service was exceptional.  This is the sort of stuff Australian retailers need to do to lure me back from shopping o/s.

I was in desperate need of T-shirts and could not find any. I bought a few some years ago from a brand named 2K by gingham, so I went online and ordered some more.
very funky and some nice colourful prints to match my new bright jeans!!

My absolute favourite is Netaporter.com

Will also shop at matchesfashion.com, harrods.com, mywardrobe.com, revolveclothing.com and shopbop.com regularly but I only look there if theres nothing catching my eye at net a porter. I do my most damage at sale time where I place multiple orders over the time it runs for.
