As much as I love fashion and shopping, I'm trying to avoid shopping at places like H&M and Forever 21. The places are stuffed with crap made in China, and everything falls apart after a few months. It's affordable and cute, I know, but I'm trying to buy more stuff that's made in the U.S. Anybody else making this same effort? If so, WHERE in the world are you shopping?

I don't care where clothes are made, from an ethical standpoint. Trade is good for the world.
Really cheap clothes fall apart fast. The entire point of stores like H&M is buy disposable fashionable pieces that you only want to wear this season and then toss anyway.
Unless you're rich, you probably can't afford to buy quality 'fashion' pieces that you're not going to wear for years.
What you need to do is figure out what are core, staple pieces, and pay more for better quality on them, while going cheap on stuff you're only going to wear while its 'in'.0
