Where I live, we have a cool store called Buckle that has trendy brands, good prices, and a great staff that knows how to fit jeans.
I drive to FL a lot, so I always stop both ways at the St. Augustine Outlets (used to be called Prime Outlets) for Gucci, Saks OFF 5th (there's one of these where I live, but it's nowhere as good), Michael Kors, and Lucky Brand. I'm in and out in an hour or two and have a lot of fun/do a lot of damage .
I'm from Canada and we have a store called "Winners" which i think is similar to TJ Maxx. Anyways, it's amazing! they have so many designer names marked down 50% or more! I got a badgley mischka bag for $220 that was orginally $545! They also have really nice and cheap tops and dresses, i got a black lace cardigan for $5 I always tell my friends how awesome winners is and they never believe me
Oh there's also this thrift store we have called "value village." I honestly have so much fun whenever i go, you'd actually be suprised by how much great stuff you can find at a thrift store. They have so many cute little vintage clutches and cross body bags and once i got an H&M cardigan for like 3 bucks, BUT i have to warn you that you need lots of patience because you have to really dig deep through the racks to get the really amazing finds
