Older women don't want "old lady" clothes. So we end up at J. Jill's, Chicos, Coldwater Creek, Talbots...

Actually, I believe Talbots had a bit of financial trouble recently. May have been resolved, but there were murmurs of bankruptcy or selling the company. They do seem to have closed a number of stores. I was never a big Talbots fan, but lately they seem to be cutting everything quite narrowly and the material is not as high quality as it used to be. Because of that, you really need to shop from the stores rather then online. Some of their clothes hang oddly due to the above. Too expensive by half, even on sale. But, as usual, YMMV.
