I recommend finding a solid stylist at Nordstrom and trying that out. I think shopping solely at one brand is not realistic. That said, for me for casual dresses and fun clothes without spending too much, I like Boden, Amour Vert (love their casual sweaters) and Farm Rio for bright prints. Work sweaters and shirts, I sort of buy things in $200-300 range at Nordstrom without paying attention to the brand too much; they all tend to be decent quality. I like dresses and skirts, so Hugo Boss in $400-500 range has simple classic options. I also like a Michael Kors, Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta fit and designs, but they vary significantly by season, so it’s more of when I find something I like. For shoes and boots, I like Stuart Weitzman boots, Aquazzura and Manolos for pumps, On for casual sneakers.

I’m 40. I would recommend to start with analyzing what’s you body type and color palette. After you figure it out you may start shopping online easily. My pet peeves when I shop: 1) Only natural fabrics for everything except athletic stuff. It’s expensive, but the good look of the piece will last longer and look better. 2) Only quality brands, I skip Zara/ H&M and etc altogether. Every flaw on their clothing highlights flaws of my skin (this how I feel anyway): young fresh girl in rugs looks like a hot rebel, women in 40s in rags look like they are homeless 3) Tailoring clothing post buy to make them fit perfectly. I have petite hourglass body type, and I’m a bit overweight (size 8 top, size 6 bottom). My go-to brands: Jason Wu, The Row, Max Mara, Gucci, Alice&Olivia, Zadig&voltaire for clothing. Shows: Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Hermès, NoBull, Tod’s. The benefit of knowing your go-to brands is that you how they fit, so you can snatch stuff on online sales easily. Also, I don’t mind scouting consignment sites for these brands, I have about 10 pieces I got with tags on for a fraction of price.

When I felt like that - I hired a stylist to help clean out my closet and the put outfits together- updating each season each year became really easy!

Rothy’s for shoes. Obsessed.

Oh, I am obsessed and have no issues with them. I am embarrassed to say I own 9 pairs.

For clothes Nordstrom Rack, Express and Marshall's. For shoes Anne Klein I find to be most comfortable & a bit stylish & classy.

Also in my 40s here although I’ve been wearing some of these brands for awhile… I have been going towards more classic and minimalist over time - MM LaFleur, Eileen Fisher, Aday, Vetta, Boden, Aiayu, Club Monaco, betabrand.

44 here and have always loved an easy, classic look. A few years ago I found MMLeFleur, a small women-owned boutique (on brick and mortar store in NYC but online as well). They have gown and now have stores in DC and SF. They used to bill themselves as the uniform for women and their target market was senior level business women. Over the last few years (and especially since Covid) they have added more casual pieces and certain collections. I prefer them over say, Nordstrom, because big luxury box store shopping means the pieces aren’t always as unique. MM LaFleur has online stylist you can speak to about styles and sizes. There is even a FB page of women who give advice on fit/form/function. https://mmlafleur.com

Guys, heard that there could be revision of compensation (compensation going less or no yearly hike)in few companies if employees are reluctant to opt for hybrid model and not willing to return to office. Have any of you faced such situations in ur experience in India? We have been working from home these past 2 years and it seems almost impractical for few to go back to office location, still if companies exploit us this way, wat is the future!isn't it high time that we as employees react !!

Would it be career suicide in the US to go to a European school for masters? Thinking of a career break and want to go to school to learn something interesting. Torn between shelling out ~200K for a Tier 1 Ivy and getting the brand/network. On the flipside my colleagues in Europe seem so much more laid back and while their schools (outside of Oxbridge) aren't really known that well in the English speaking world it might be a nice break with little to no cost.
