Does anyone else feel like they are in an age funk at the clothing store?

I know weird question. I am 23 and when I got to walmart, target, jc pennys, kohls, really any clothing store, I feel like there arent any clothes for me. I feel like im to old to wear juniors, but to young to wear the stuff they have in the womens section. If your in the 20-30 range, where do you go shopping to look young and in style, without looking like a 16yr old? Cause I sure cant pull that look off.

  • I was just shopping and having the same problem yesturday! LOL! Depending on what I am shopping for, if I am going out on the town and want to look sexy and, yes, kindof sluty I go with juniors from Kmart or Walmart, but if I am looking for work clothes and "appropreate" clothes I go to Fashion Bug or Layne Bryant. I LOVE Fashion Bug. Half of my wardwrobe is from there lol.

  • You are 23 and think that you can't shop in the juniors dept.? I am 32 and still shop in the juniors but I only buy things that are appropriate. The misses dept. is way too old looking for me! Just because I am 32 doesn't mean i can't still be hip!

  • Hey yeah me too! I'm 35 and I still check out the Jr appropriate of course......I agree that the womens clothes all remind me of grandma and are some thngs I flat out would not wear! Fashion bug is good and Lane Bryant. I get some things from New York & co too. Just cute things from all over that are all put together.
