    Yes, I love so many designers, not all the time though.

    I omitted some catagories; way too difficult to come up with general favorites!
     
  3. For overall aesthetic- Prada.

    I don't own a ton of designer clothing so I won't bother listing favorites for individual pieces. The only designer items I really bother with are jeans, shoes, bags and lingerie. The rest of my clothes come from fashion chain stores, and sometimes slightly more upscale but not what I would call "designer" brands (BCBG, Laundry, Theory etc.)
     
  4. jeans - Paige (perfect fit everywhere)
    suits - Nanette Lepore (the small details she adds make her pieces soo cute!)
    casual tops - Marc by MJ
    fancy tops - Nu collection (they make very fun fancy tops!)
    dresses -d&g (because their smallest size is a 22 and it fits!)
     
  5. So many...here is what I actually buy:
    casual - James Perse, LaRok, Ella Moss, Trovata, MIKE & CHRIS!
    dressy - Diane von Furstenberg, Nanette Lepore
    jeans - Earnest Sewn, Sass & Bide, True Religion, Taverniti So
    shoes - Marc Jacobs, Dolce Vita
    bags - Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, Mulberry, Goldenbleu
    and of course Forever 21 and H & M :yahoo:

    Just to look at - Hanii Y, Zac Posen, Chloe shoes, Chanel bags (hope to buy one in the next year or so...)

    I'll probably post this and think "how could I have forgotten X?" like a thousand times, but whatever.
