Is it just me?

I live in Jerusalem.

I am supporting my husband in kollel - but I have set aside a decent budget for clothes.

I am tall and slim.

I want to be reasonably up to date with what's in fashion - not crazy, but not "nebby" either.

I CANNOT FIND ANYTHING.

If I take time off work to go shopping, I will usually come out empty handed - so I will lose money from not working, but still not find anything nice.

So I read these threads about shells not being in fashion, florals not being in fashion, sigh - and I think - I'm wearing clothing from years ago - like 5, 6 years mostly - and I like it - but it's not at all in fashion - and it's not for lack of trying.

When do you go shopping? And if you're in Jerusalem - where?

Most of these do free delivery if you order over a certain amount. Also Zara has free shipping for over 200 shekel.

When?
Most people no shopping after or before working hours, Motzei Shabbos or fridays.

I shop online. Sometimes from work, but more often at home. If you stick to a few brands you soon get a sense of what size you need. If something is really wrong, it is normally possible to advertise it on a local email or WhatsApp group and sell it on for a minimal discount.

Locally I often find nice stuff in Lord Kitsch. I don't normally 'go shopping', since in my experience that's a recipe for disaster. If I am passing I'll wander in and see if they have anything I like. Sometimes they do, and sometimes they don't, but I normally end up with a reasonable wardrobe each season without wasting too much time.
