I love madewell, their style is casual but trendy and they also have a lot of feminine pieces. The store is not to big where you are overwhelmed but still have plenty of options for all different tastes. The denim is so comfortable and flattering and the fabrics they use are so comfortable. Prices are somewhat high but not outrageous, especially considering the quality is so great. Plus they have plenty of fantastic sales.
Love nordstrom because I know I can purchase anything and not have to worry about not being able to return it if I end up changing my mind. They also price match and normally have good customer service. They always have the latest styles available
