I've recently returned to work and...ah....my pre(2)-babies clothes don't fit!
Typically I spend quite a bit on good quality suits/pants that will last the distance. But I'm trying to lose weight and don't want to spend a fortune on clothes that will hopefully only last a few months.
Any suggestions for where to buy reasonably priced (read cheap!) work clothes in the interim?

Target :-) there's a brand called City Dressing. Good prices and a really nice selection.

Yep I second target. I've just bought a few dresses for work there. Good quality and $50 each! Their tops are nice also but their skirts and pants don't fit me, but that's just my body, not a target thing. I find it hard to find nice fitted bottom pieces.

Target or Kmart?

Another vote for Target from me.

I buy all my work stuff (& everything else for that matter) online. Places like shopbop seem SUPER expensive until you get something in their 70% off section. I won't pay more than about $35 for something. Also I buy a huge majority of stuff on eBay. Things like metalicus are stretchy & fit all bodies plus I've bought things like Easton Pearson jackets that retail around $450 for less than $50. I have a very big designer / high end wardrobe yet rarely pay over $100 even for things like Camilla etc etc.

I use next direct. They have great machine washable suits etc that last years. You can also buy trousers as separates. They do free delivery for orders over $30.

Forecast and Barkins have cheaper work wear.
I would spend money on a good blazer which can go with lots of things and then get some cheaper pants/dresses which you can smarten up with the blazer.

I found Target pretty good when I used to have to buy work attire.
These days I have uniform provided. Good thing for me really, saves money.

Excellent, thanks everyone
I was worried about the quality of Target, but perhaps they have changed in recent years.
