Unexpected pay-rise shockgrin

Can prob afford to 'up-shop' a bit, IYSWIM

Usually do Topshop, H&M, Zara etc. New Look and Primark too sometimes.

I'm 36, want to avoid Mumsy look (obvwink)

Tops, blazers, easy/casual dresses maybe

A new wardrobe eentirely

How about Vanessa Bruno?

Just had a look, bit too pricey for a general wardrobe overhaul. Don't mind spending a bit on a 'special' item but for everyday stuff neec to go cheaper

Thanks for suggestion though! Can always scour eBay for pieces...

Levis are my favourite jeans brand.
How about trying Mint Velvet, Whistles, Reiss and Jigsaw.

Lovely lovely lovely

What I was looking for, thanks grin

Off to look, myself !!

I would definitely hit Whistles and Cos. Better quality clothes but not modern and not frumpy.

Net a Porter, Matches and Flannels have ace sales and their prices are more affordable at these times. For shoes you may want to try Russell and Bromley, Ash, Sam Edelman perhaps. Happy shopping.
