Nothing to Wear



Yesterday, I was reading Sue’s Blog for Boomers, Men and Women over 50
where she posted that she was
“so frustrated. I've been surfing the web for an hour now. I can't believe the lack of clothing options for the over-50 lady.”

I commented about a web site and store here in Canada that I like.
And of course this got me thinking.

What if we all posted some of our favourite sites and/or stores that cater to the mature woman and her figure?
That way we could save everyone’s favourites on our computers, perhaps in a folder labeled *Shopping for Me.*

Then when we are in the mood for shopping for something new to add to our wardrobes or just want to see what is available at the moment we would have a *one stop shopping area* that would be easy to access either monthly, weekly or in my case, daily.

So ladies what do you think?

I'll start with mine.
The following are my personal favourites here in Canada.

Tabi
On-line or in-store shopping. .

Northern Reflections Canada
On-line or in-store shopping.

Nygard
On-line or in-store shopping

Cleo
In store only

Post your favourites in the comments section or on your own personal blogs.

Good idea ... here in NYC there's Lane Bryant I cant tell you much about them because I have never shopped there .. there's also Chico's which is a chain that is in many malls .. I have been in their shops and the clothes look very comfy and are mostly lightweight and loose.

I never shop on line myself. Can't help you there.

I love coming to your blog to see what new bear you have to show us. They are so clever and cute.

What a lovely idea. I'm afraid I rarely shop for clothes and when I do it's via catalogue so I can't be of much help though.

Lane Bryant stores are excellent - especially for larger sizes but can be a bit expensive BUT they have great end of season sales and once you shop there once you get coupons all the time. they're also on-line

womanwithin.com - less expensive and a huge array of sizes but the quality is not always great - not everything looks as good in person as it does on line

silhouettes.com - they rock!! amazing sales, their shirts are longer length and they are so true to size. by far my favorite

great idea Bear!

GJG said...

well I myself, am not a "Mall Crawler", could never really get into THAT SPORT. (lol) as such I am pretty much and Eddie Bauer Boy, and do my shopping On-Line. (My remark above was me being a "smart elic", and was meant to be humorous, no apologies needed.)

To be honest, I don't think I'm too cluey about this 'comment' business! I've just 'posted' you the recipe in response to your request (Chicken and Asparagus) but
it doesn't seem to have 'arrived' and it wouldn't have fitted-in to this topic anyway!
Help!

Hey, ladies (and man),
I am getting less frustrated. Your suggestions give me hope that there really are places in cyberspace and the mall which can produce some cool clothes for us chicks (and dude). Keep the comments coming.
In the meantime, anyone with an entrepreneurial inclination, get on the ball and create a great line of clothes for the over-50 crowd. Let the Big Boys know that it's time they pay attention to our fashion needs!
Other considerations:

Thanks, Bear, for keeping this going.

I shop on eBay a lot. Yeah, I love buying stuff cheap. I am an inveterate bargain hunter. It began out of necessity and now it's a sport.
