Ardene is a store I shopped at very often when I was a teen. Although my style and taste have changed since then, I still feel nostalgic when I walk past it. I still drop in sometimes and always leave with something cute.
Ardene has a mixture of fast fashion styles and timeless basics with a modern twist. Ardene often has cute pajamas and fluffy scarves in the display window, but the inside of the store is so much more diverse. I once bought a couple of simple but durable blouses from there which I would wear to work, on weekends and everywhere in between.
It’s also a great spot for picking out quick gifts such as scarves, key chains, even small toys sometimes!
The prices in Ardene are very affordable, to the point where I often find myself asking why a certain item is so modestly priced. Shopping there is guilt-free and budget friendly.
This one is a rather unexpected tip: I love art, especially patterns, and Ardene always features clothing with such interesting patterns that I often drop by just for artistic inspiration.
