NY&Co: The Shirt Bar

I've decided to include New York & Company (on a limited basis, similar to Express, ON, and AE) on this blog. I used to shop NY&Co a lot, but it's only at the "Little Mall", which we rarely go to (even though it does have an enormous VS), so I check out most of their clothes online. I shop them mainly for work pieces, but I haven't been there in awhile (plus this is one of The Boyfriend's least favorite stores).

I love the idea of a Shirt Bar. I think a white dress shirt should be a basic staple in my wardrobe, but I have a hard time finding ones that I love - that aren't too dowdy, or that fight right, or that are simple enough to pair with a variety of things.

Just as a note on NY&Co: I have always found (and have heard from others) that their clothes run a little big, so if you're unsure, it's best to try on first!

What do you think? Do you like NY&Co?

I totally agree that their clothes run big! I'm just glad that they carry petite pants there!

I love this white ladies shirt from the white shirt company, the cotton and style are superb,
they are not cheap but the quality and service is really excellent,

I work at New York & Company and am happy to see the Shirt Bar here. I love the shirts, and bought the one with the zipper on sleeves and LOVE it. FYI this collection is more fitted than other New York & Co clothes. Clothes from the New York & Company Collection also run a bit small because they are more fitted.

Ashley - I agree - NY&Co has a good petites/short selection, which is so nice!

Anons - Thanks for the info on The White Shirt Company - those shirts look like a good investment.

Seeking my roots - Thanks for the insider information! Do they have the shirt bar in-store, too, or just online?

I would always prefer to browse New York & Co. for my favorite summer dresses.
