we don't have a chicos. is it similar to a bonworths? i have purchased items there for my elderly mother.
Returning to the idea of being horrified that an 80-yr-old wears your clothes....I've got bad news for all you Banana Republic fans. My 86 yr old mother is 5' 5", weighs about 112 lbs, has a tiny waist, does yoga and walks a couple of miles every day, and she prefers Banana Republic jeans.
Kitschy clothes can be found in any store. Some stores have more "wearable kitsch" than others. Same goes for good-looking clothes. I actually bought stuff for myself at both Chico's and Forever 21 (a tank top is a tank top!). That red jacket from Chico's is adorable
