Houston, TX 77027
Tailored but never trendy, this affordable chain has been keeping the closets of career gals and housewives stocked with good-quality, basic wardrobe-builders, shoes, and accessories since 1954. Diligent shoppers can unearth some seasonal options with more of an edge, too: suede wrap skirts, retro-print separates, or clingy little black dresses. Frequent sales make these stores prime ops for college grads on the prowl for interview suits, weddings, and first-job career-wear.
Anthropologie includes housewares, hardware, bath products, children’s toys, books, linens, and a beautiful collection of dresses, blouses, sweaters, and shoes.
