I find it over-priced for the quality tbh. I had a jersey dress from there and it shrank on first wash, and got a hole in it on second. Then again, I have a silk dress from there which I love and still looks like new.
A lot of it is too drapey and droopy for my liking though.
we have a fairly large Phase Eight section in our local department store and I find it really hit and miss. I'm 48. My favourite LBD with a difference is from there and I honestly get so so many flattering comments every time I wear it. Yet somethings I think even my dear old mum wouldn't wear.
I'm 44 and have recently bought a smart jumper and pair of skinny trousers there, I've also got some good work dresses.
It is all a bit hit or miss and can veer into Per Una style cruise wear.
However I feel at my age there is a bit of a shortage of good shops. Mint Velvet is fine, if you don't mind everything being gray but Hobbs is a bit square shaped for me and mega pricey. I have been buying loads from the ladies range of Captain Tortue, primarily because the lady has a stall at the school far.
