    We don't know what we'd do without Uniqlo in our lives and, frankly, we don't know what the rest of the country does without it, either. Luckily, Uniqlo has recently announced plans to aggressively expand into U.S. cities beyond its current smattering of 20 stores on the East and West Coasts. First up, six stores in the Boston area this summer and fall, and a pop-up shop and a flagship to follow in summer 2015, and two Philadelphia stores in the fall. After that, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and California will all get their turn.

Get ready for oversized parkas, drop-waist dresses, brunch-worthy sweats, and denim that looks at least three times more expensive than it is. As you'll soon see for yourself, it's Uniqlo's world; we just (happily) live in it. (Fashionista)
