Ann Taylor is the place to go if you want to look professional and classic. I was able to find great clothes here when I was a size 14 and I am now able to find great clothes here as a size 8! Their hosiery is also great - feels nice and doesn't run easily. The prices are pretty reasonable for what you get and I have always been pleased by their clearance rack. I am currently a SAHM and don't have much occasion to dress up (playgroup is casual), but I was thrilled to shop there at Christmas and find it just as great as the last time.
