Small local boutiques. I prefer to try on clothes rather than ordering online. And I’m supporting local business.

EY2 - you're so right. There are a few local ones I like for work as well - I wish there were more local stores near me that stock larger sizes. My current fav is Trelise Cooper, they even have a Co-OP Collective to shop from. www.trelisecooper.com

Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Theory, Talbots, Brooks Brothers, Loft (for business casual). I don’t care too much about being creative at work...I’m more concerned with fit, quality of construction, fabric, and go-anywhere classics. I’m also little, and even petites tend to be too long in the legs & sleeves, so free tailoring (Banana!) or esse of tailoring is important too.

SM1 - Thank you for sharing. I'd never heard of this place, and they ship international! I might need to order a few things before our new law on GST on overseas purchases kicks in on 1 Dec!

I'm plus size, so my options are limited, but have had good luck with Macy's online.

Just want to give up. Stuck on a awful project. Too early to leave Deloitte, too inconvenient to network my way off the project, and management is unwillingly to make any work-life considerations.

You ever get sick of those people that make work into a competition of “who has it worse”? It’s fine to bitch about work but don’t dismiss everyone else’s workload just Bc you’re that self centered
