I was at the mall this weekend, and as I walked by Express, I remembered 9th and 10th grade when I basically bought my entire wardrobe from that store. I don’t know if either I outgrew the store, or if their clothes took a turn towards uninspiring (it seems a little trendier and flashier now), but I haven’t darkened an Express door in years.
Some other stores I used to frequent but now avoid:
- Wet Seal. I think in this case I simply got too old for sequined tube tops and polyester pants. Props to anyone who can still pull it off, though!
- Pac Sun. I went through a mini surfer-phase in high school before realizing that I had never been on a surfboard in my life. Sorry, Billabong.
- Claire’s. I used to get all my jewelry here! You reach a certain point, though, where even though that ring is trendy and cheap, it’s not worth it turning your finger green after a couple wears.
- American Eagle. I’m not really into the preppy look as much now.
Are there any stores you used to always shop at, but now never do?
