I just made a post along this line, lol. My kids wear those brands but we have a pretty strict school dress code, so what they wear is modest enough for me. What about JC Penny's or Sears? They have cute stuff. Aéropostale is cheaper, but they are kind of a knock off of the brands you said you didn't like. It's hard shopping for the kids, buying dad approved swimsuits this summer was a nightmare, lol.

Once they got to that age I didnt buy the clothes for them.  I gave them a budget and let them pick out their own clothes.  We of course had appropriate guide lines, but I think once they are teens they should have some say in what they wear.

btw.... when we started this my daughter ended up buying a couple of name brand shirts and not having much of the budget left.  But the next year she wised up and started at a consignment shop.

Yep, Kohls.  Also JC Pennys, Target, Ross.  Decent quality, decent price, decent looking.  A little more money at  Charlotte Russe, NY & Co. , Deliah's,  & H&M.

We do this, they shop the clearance racks and look for online coupons. I was shocked at how thrifty mine got. There are limits, but I got lucky and both dress cute, but not a lot of skin. But like I said the school dress code takes care of a lot of that battle. One is preppy, one is rock. The only thing they agree on is there boots, lol!

Yep, they are the exact same size, the younger one did end up outgrowing the older one this year, but they are still close. Most everything is still the same size, I am still putting initials in socks and jeans so I can separate them when putting stuff away.
