The Limited is one of my go to stores and has been a staple of my shopping routine since high school! From high school, to college, and now to the working world The Limited keeps me coming back as a shopper with its affordable and classic pieces. But what I love most of all about the clothes from The Limited is that in one stop I can find pieces that are work ready but also chic enough for cocktails with my girlfriends.
When I first graduated, I purchased my first black blazer at the Limited. I was able to find something professional that fit well and didn't feel too stuffy. As a recent grad, I wanted to be taken seriously in my new job, but I had major problems finding clothing that had personality and didn't feel "too old" for me. I still love the Limited today for this very reason!

When I was in gradeschool, Limited Too opened at the mall, and it was so uber cool because the store was modeled after the original (not the pukey bright colors of today), and seemed so sleek and grownup. I loooooved shopping there. Then my love continued throughout high school. I'll never forget the bright yellow short sleeved sweater I wore to my first day of high school, nor the sporty but sleek white jacket I wore over EVERYTHING! Nowadays my favorite Limited pieces are my boatneck black sweater and brown and orange tweed jacket (a la Jackie O). Ah, the Limited, always there for us women. You hit the nail on the head, Kasmira, The Limited does it right with the little twists of the classics.
When I got my first "real" job while living in DC, the limited was the first place I stopped to "class up" my wardrobe that had managed to get me through waistressing and starbucks, but would totally be awful in an office. I remember that I told myself I was buying investment peices (Now they seem more than affordable.) I ended up getting a brightly colored cardigan, and black a line dress, and a pair of grey amazing slacks. Everything has lasted me these four years, and are going to be classic pieces forever. I think buying clothing at the limited was one of the first things that actually made me feel like the adult I was becoming, and that it was a good thing.
What an exciting contest! I need a consultation with a Jodi Arnold. I'm that girl that looks like she has it together, has some sort of fashion but I don't! I'm the worst. I go into stores and try to find the most stylish new outfit but am terrible of picking it out. I always look at young professional women and think - if only I could get an outfit like that! That's why I love the Limited, their sales consultants are always so helpful and the selection is great! They do a nice job putting the outfits together on the model, which is so helpful for people like me! The Limited look has great pants, pants that really fit. All of their designs are professional chic, love it!
