Psst! Get The Inside Scoop On Lucky Editors' Secret Shopping Sources

It's not uncommon to see eight girls in our office wear the same pair of Zara heels in the span of a week. We like the same brands, we shop in the same stores; it happens. But we also have our own personal things, both obscure, one-off finds and ritualistic shopping habits, like these ones below. Clutches from Home Depot, underthings from Sports Authority—they're not everyone else's go-to sources, but sometimes it's nice to be a little different (at least for part of our outfit, before we strap on those Zara stilettos).

"Every year when summer rolls around, I head to The Sports Authority or a similar athletic shop to stock up on second-skin black and white bike shorts—yep, the clingy, Tour de France kind—to wear under my favorite flippy dresses and short skirts. Living in NYC, you walk over a lot of street grates and go in and out of a ton of subway stations, both of which pack a hefty breeze. I've accidentally flashed far too many passing cab drivers and construction workers over the years, and bike shorts are the best way to keep the bits covered, no question."—Elana Fishman, Senior Digital Editor
