On the first Thursday of every third month I go to the dumpster behind the Salvation Army Thrift Store because that's the day they toss out all the struff that nobody wants to buy. Sure the stuff has stains and burn marks and whatever, but it's perfectly functional otherwise. Covers me up in the summer and keeps me warm in the winter.
I'm a die hard fan of Nordstrom...pricey but great service and quality of clothing is excellent. I bought a few pieces there that have lasted me for a long time...its worth every penny. I also like target aka Tarjaay lol that have a pretty good selection for good prices, and forever 21.
