...for spring/summer casual wardrobe? I'm fed up of buying shorts/t shirts/dresses/linen trousers in places like New Look which only seem to last me 5 mins or fall apart in the washing machine. It seems like false economy atm. So, with this in mind I was wondering what & where you would spend out on for key pieces - to add tops/flip flops/pumps etc from other shops that won't break the bank but can bring classic/key pieces up to trend?

Thank you - Dotty P's more my budget at the mo though! Am hoping that Warehouse might get their spring line right, as I think their stuff is a bit more me than most high street, but still affordable.

There's a 25% off code for warehouse I posted on a thread earlier.

I got my Farhi one reduced but is very nice.

Thanks. smile

I tried a very reduced Fahri top on today but even in the small it was enormous (and I am not small!).

Yes their jersey stuff is crazy big. The linen biker was pretty true to size though. Was surprised as generally its not a make that fits me well.

Had never looked before. I also tried a 'small' t-shirt in Whistles, which was equally ridiculously sized.
