As a local and low budget bangkokian, I love to shop at
1. JJ market, weekend market, open from 11am. I prefer to go there after 4pm. Here you will find indy and fashion clothes and also home decoration stuff. (BTS station: Mo-Chit)
2. Platinum, near by Pratoo-Num. (BTS station : Ratchathewi and take taxi)
3. Asiatique (http://www.thaiasiatique.com/index.php/th). It is located by the river. There are also nice restaurant with good views.

The shopping centers around Siam BTS have just about everything you could hope for. Cheapest would be MBK and the stalls and small shops in Siam Square. Or for brand name clothing have a look at Siam Center, Siam Paragon or Central World.
Around that area you can see a massive range of shopping options within a relatively short amount of time.
A little further along Suhkumvit next to Asoke BTS there's another new mall called Terminal 21, which is themed in floors. Especially the upper floors tend to have smaller Thai designer stores and boutique collections which can be interesting.
And finally, one more interesting night-time shopping experience is Asiatique on the riverside. You can catch a free shuttle boat from the pier near Saphan Taksin BTS. This is a cool place with lots of small shops, and good for food too. (It's essentially the new version of the famous night bizarre which used to be at Lumphini park). It's a great place to spend an evening and you can find some interesting stuff. about 5 years ago
