Last week, two things happened that made me feel old. First, I turned 31 (eeek!). And then later in the week, my friend sent around an email that read: I think I’ve hit an all time low. I want to buy something from Coldwater Creek.
After dying with laugher, it hit me. Where does a 30-something-year-old shop?! My friends and I are certainly not feeling Forever 21 anymore and my beloved junior’s section at Nordstrom has been making me feel ancient. Crop tops? — I have a stomach! Neon everything? — I have a full time office job!
So where do budget-conscious women shop when we’ve outgrown Forever 21 or Wet Seal but are still too young for Talbots or Coldwater Creek? (note: both are great retailers, just not right for me… yet).
I decided to pull together a list of retailers for those of us 30+. Each brand hits all three of my criteria: age appropriate, affordable, and [most importantly] cute. Just because I’ve said goodbye to my 20’s does not mean I’m saying goodbye to looking fashionable!
And please share your favorite “over 30” retailers in the comments section!
