    I'm resurrecting this thread because I suffer from a combination of laziness and not liking a lot of the current clothing fads. Are there any other sites that people have come across for clothes that they'd like to recommend?

    I've been buying a lot of clothes on Etsy.com for a little while now. You can find handmade and vintage clothes on there, and it really feels like a marketplace/community. There's some pricey stuff on there, but most people keep their prices down and just want to share their clothes and talents with others.

    I refuse to wear synthetics as well. They just feel gross to me. I haven't had much trouble finding clothing, but that's probably because I wear jeans and T-shirts 99% of the time and I have a few nicer-looking shirts and skirts for when I need to dress up.

    Have you tried Nordstroms? It's a little on the pricey side but they have good sales sometimes.

    Generally, cheap clothes are made with synthetic material. You have to dish out a little more money for well-made clothes made of natural fabrics.

    Or watch the sales. I have never paid full price for any item of clothing. However, I don't buy much, and a good 50% of what I do buy has come from thrift stores, which are kind of hit-or-miss as heart pointed out. You have to go often to get the good stuff.

    REI has good sales too, some of them web-only.

    What I really want are some cotton dresses, woven cotton, not knit and not poly/cotton but cotton and I want them to look nice, not some battle-axe looking sack, but I don't see many of these out there now. What the hell happened?


    Fashion is skin deep.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I can't afford Coldwater Creek! They have lovely stuff but gadzooks at their prices! Money for clothes comes out of my book budget.

    Yes, this is what I used to do and now not really able to and it's harder to shop online for the same kinds of things I used to find.

    LOL, I forgot about this thread.... I never did end up buying any clothes.
