Have I lost the plot? I like the look of this dress and they've got some cheap canvas pumps too

I've got a few t-shirt dresses from aldi that I just wear about the house/garden. They've lasted a few years and wash well

I've got a denim dress almost identical to that from GAP. Beware that the button-up front might make it indecently short for anything other than holiday/sunbathing wear.

I have the Lidl denim jacket MrsJayy. It was £10 IIRC and it's perfect - the right shade of dark blue, nice cut, just enough stretch in the fabric to flatter without being too clingy. I love it.

Lidl is good for basics, I definitely wouldn't rule Aldi out either.

I was so annoyed the jacket sold out was just what i was after

I got a black cardigan from there a few years ago. Spotted it on the Aisle of Wonder for about £5 and just chucked it in with my groceries thinking it'd be o to wear over dresses for work on colder days. It has washed brilliantly, colour and shape still look practically as good as new, much better than similar knitwear costing 5 x the price!

I may have just ordered the denim dress. It looks like just what I am after - all the denim dresses about seem to be rock hard. Worth a look I reckon!

l like the look of that dress.

I have bought running kit from Aldi and Lidl in the past. Both have excellent quality stuff at low prices. My running capris are still going strong years later.

The running kit is fab!

Aldi in Australia do lovely kids clothes and family often send it out to the DCs.

I agree their running kit is great and cheap as chips

Just brought it and thought I'd share some info about it. I brought it in 10 and I'm 5'5 slightly gaping on chest (nothing a safety pin can't fix) but other than that it fits well. Nice light weight material. I'll most likely style it with a brown belt. Bargain!

I ordered two different sizes so will update when they arrive. Looks really good on you Jaimx

I got some trousers last year - very similar to hush Vanessa trousers. Less than 1/5th of the price

Jaimx86 Sun 15-May-16 22:04:42

I just wish the items didn't sell out so quickly! My dad also got one of the men's polo shirts for £3.99 and it looks fab. When I called around and saw it hanging up I thought it was one of my brother's 'designer' shirts! Has anyone seen the denim pumps? I couldn't see them.

My favourite top was a LiDL bargain...

Jaimx86 I love your floorboards! /off topic

I picked one up today as I've been looking for a shirt dress for ages. I love it but the hems at the side are sticking out weirdly confused so it's going back!
