Lately it's been Jack Wills, Top Shop, Gap, Boden and Mango for me.

HappyGirlNow Sat 03-May-14 22:04:21

Snap Frankietwospots, with the addition of uniqlo, cos and occasional h&m and m&s.

Capet, my one fran and jane dress fell apart on the 1 occasion that I wore it... £200 down the drain, since I just never got round to returning it.

Oh forgot sea salt and ness.
No outlets here boo !

I like Joy for dresses

capet Sat 03-May-14 22:51:23

Yeah I agree re fran and Jane quality, it can be hit or miss.
I only buy their dresses in sales. I don't think they're worth full price. You should have definitely returned that dress though. Not good enough after one wear

Just bought a lovely kimono from lipsy

Fairylea Sat 03-May-14 23:08:28

I love gap for most things. (Especially today as they had 30% off!) And then next for jeans and new look and asos for top fashion bits that I don't care if they last 20 years or whatever smile

I also like seasalt and fat face for warm and comfortable stuff. I love their sweatshirt type tops.

And I buy some stuff especially shoes from topshop. So a proper mixture really!!

I love zara and mango but I am a very pear shaped size 16-18 and their large is just ridiculous on me (can't even do it up! )

TheRealMaryMillington Sat 03-May-14 23:54:16

a bit of Toast in the sale for dresses especially

I love outlets, sales and discount codes.

If you haven't got a Jaeger loyalty card, get one! I was in their outlet and spied a bag I'd had my eye on for a year or so, reduced to £ 125 from £300. I pounced and was asked if I had a loyalty card, which I did. Turned out it was spend £150, get £50 off day for card holders. I spied a lovely jumper reduced from £180 to £49. Took it to the till with the £125 bag and was charged £124! My £180 jumper effectively cost -£1.

I'm usually dressed head to toe in topshop, probably laziness because I know the layout, how the clothes fit etc.

I also like Zara for bits and bobs.

My style is quite hippy and boho and I've just come across
www.freepeople.co.uk

Has anyone anything from there? It's quite expensive so not sure whether to risk it

Fcukfifa Sun 04-May-14 20:44:34

Anyone bought anything that should say
