Just like last year, we've tapped a handful of reputable fashion friends to weigh in on 2013's greatest hits (and misses). Next up: we asked everyone where they spent all their money this year.

Connie Wang, Style Director at Refinery29: In terms of quantity, Pixie Market. I always find the most unique, special-feeling products there that are inexpensive enough where I don't feel guilty for buying in bulk. In terms of actual money spent, I'd have to say CB2. I just moved into a new apartment, and I had to get a new couch!
Lauren Sherman, Editor-at-Large at Fashionista: Does Amazon count? If not, probably COS. Every time I go to Europe for work I end up spending a few hundred dollars there. It adds up.
Jamie Shupak, NY1 Traffic Anchor: Definitely Shopbop. I prefer to do most of my shopping online and they carry everything.
Erica Cerulo, Of a Kind: I'm terrible at shopping in stores anymore—god-awful, really. Sephora? It's hard to walk in and not spend $80, between all that Josie Maran goodness and the schmancy lip product that I think is going to change my life.
Claire Mazur, Of a Kind: Forager's Grocer in Dumbo. Sadly.
Nicolette Mason, blogger: ASOS. I'm a bonafide addict.
Mallory Blair, Small Girls PR: Ted Baker. And as a result, I now own this Jamthun power suit in multiple colors and sleeve-lengths. Working in PR, there's a lot of daytime meetings followed by media events or client drinks in the evening. This transitions really well from the boardroom to the bar.
Sidney Morgan Petro, Retail Editor of Stylesight: Every time I go to Cali I head straight to Virgo in downtown LA. I can't go there without wanting to buy the entire store. Over here on the East Coast I've dropped a small fortune at Pixie Market, Patricia Fields, ABC Carpet and the Brooklyn Flea. I can already tell that Dover Street Market will be a problem for my wallet as well.
