Yeah yeah yeah, people keep knocking on Forever 21 because their clothes are cheap, material-wise. Well, you know what? They're also cheap price-wise, and they have cute, up-to-date fashions, so I'm going to keep shopping here. I know a lot of people complain about how their clothes "fall apart", but I've never really had a problem before. I mean, what do people wear their F21 clothes to? Rock climbing? Running with bulls? There's nothing like looking cute for less, and getting decent quality for the price!
I love shopping here! To me, shopping for panties at Victoria's Secret is like a little kid dropped off at a candy store; I put everything in the shopping bag! They've also got an awesome selection of swimwear, too, and I absolutely love the boudoir-esque feeling of their fitting rooms. Like I said in my Victoria's Secret review, there's a reason why their semi-annual sales are like the first 10 minutes of Saving Private Ryan!

If you couldn't already tell from my Beauty Products list, I am a MAC girl! I'm addicted to their Fluidline, pigment, and brushes, and they also have the most wonderful shades in almost every cosmetic products. Pricey, but most definitely worth it.
Since I'm mostly a MAC cosmetics girl, I don't venture to Sephora too often, but when I just so happen to be around one, I can't help but be gravitated into it, and the worse/best part is that I always find something to buy! I love how it's mostly self-served and there isn't someone following you around at all times, unless of course, you want a personal shopper/makeup artist. Pretty laid back, and I can sample whatever I want, and spend as much time there as I want, and trust me, I can spend hours there!
Yes, Target is on my list! They've got surprisingly cute clothes at great prices. What I really like getting here are their dresses, work out clothes, and their Xhilarate line of socks are really cute. Plus, they carry all those drug store cosmetic lines (except for Max Factor, for some reason), so I can pick up some N.Y.C. and Sally Hansen nail polish, and some Cover Girl eyeshadow while I'm picking up TV dinners and Pine Sol.
Steve Madden has such a wide variety of shoes -- sensible ones, cute ones, hot ones, painful ones, etc, etc. They've got shoes for every occasion. I absolutely love their ballet flats, and their boots.
I would love shopping at H&M a whole lot more if they weren't just located in major metropolitan cities. The ones that I've been to in San Francisco, New York, Paris, and Hong Kong are ALWAYS insane, so full of people, and they only have a few of each size of each piece, which makes shopping there a hit or a miss. Too heartbreaking if I don't find my size! That's why Forever 21 is at the top of the list; they seem to be everywhere around here and not just in major cities. Sometimes I don't even bother looking at the clothes, I just hit up the shoes and accessories.
I have a love/hate relationship with Urban Outfitters. On the one hand, I really love some of the items that they carry, especially the books, random gadgets, vintage-looking dresses and their shoes, but on the other hand, their employees are kind of pretentious, and their stuff is pretty expensive for what it is... But I still can't help but shop here once in a while! It's also a great place to get gag gifts.
Another company that I have a love/hate relationship with. I think that I mostly just have a problem with their print ads. So tacky and bad, they really don't flatter the clothes, but once in a while, I'll find an item that I really, really like here. So far, I've gotten a pretty, pretty dress, a floppy hat, and some ridiculous leggings.
Louis Vuitton's only at the bottom of the list because I can't realistically shop here as much as I'd like, but I just love window shopping here, and when I do actually allow myself to walk in here and buy something like, once or twice a year, it's a real treat!
