This probably sounds crazy but I miss retail shopping. Up here there is mostly boutique shopping which means insanely high prices that are well beyond my student budget. On the bright side, there is a Filene’s Basement but most of their brands are super-brands; in my mind anything nicer than Express or Banana Republic is a super-brand that falls outside of the regular public’s knowledge of fashion and budget. Even on their discount prices a lot of the jeans were over $120 and that’s just impossible to afford. Oh well.
