Where else are you shopping for clothes?

That's it really. I don't seem to find anything I like on the high street and again seem to always go back to the same shops online.
I need new ideas so I don't end up being the cover girl for the next Boden catalog!

For casual stuff I like Seasalt. For smarter I'm currently into Hush and Mint Velvet

although I am currently wearing a Boden dress which is unhelpful

Clarinet1 Tue 08-Nov-16 16:56:15

What about Joules? Cath Kidston? Debenhams (especially the "Designers at ranges)?

HummusForBreakfast Tue 08-Nov-16 19:39:58

Thank you for all the ideas.
I am really looking at the smarter end of things atm so Joules or SeaSalt wouldn't quite do (I do use both of them though)

polyhymnia Tue 08-Nov-16 19:44:55

Jaeger? Whistles?

VinoEsmeralda Tue 08-Nov-16 19:46:18

Phase eight

Nanasueathome Tue 08-Nov-16 19:47:41

Was going to say Seasalt but can see already been suggested

BakeOffBiscuits Tue 08-Nov-16 19:48:15

Jigsaw and Whistles

Nanasueathome Tue 08-Nov-16 19:48:40

Ahh, smarter..

Agree with pp re Hush and Mint Velvet. The White Company have some lovely bits aswell - I'm currently wearing a shirt dress bought from there last week and they always have a 15% voucher on the go.

Was going to say Phase Eight and Hobbs, I see they've both already got a mention.

CruCru Wed 09-Nov-16 13:58:36

I like Landsend but not for anything smart.

hooliodancer Wed 09-Nov-16 14:01:19

I love Jigsaw and would buy everything from there if I could.

I like tops from Baujken.

Diamonddealeroncemore Wed 09-Nov-16 14:01:19

Definitely Poetry I love their clothes

polyhymnia Wed 09-Nov-16 14:15:38

Another vote for Poetry here. A favourite. And their other brand, Wrap.

helzapoppin2 Wed 09-Nov-16 15:19:25

Nomads and Adini

Great question OP! I too love Boden for lots of things. Last year I bought very few clothes for myself as I had lots to be used. This year I needed to replace lots and I am literally the walking Boden catalogue - I bought a coat, bag, dress, knitwear, blouse, bretons x 3, boots etc etc.

I also bought a couple of really gorgeous things in Jigsaw (velvet skinny jeans, cashmere jumper, sweater and plaid shirt)

I agree with a previous poster - I would buy everything they have in Jigsaw this year if I had the budget!

I also like whistles, cos, french connection - selectively in each.

I adore Noa Noa too

I am 46, size 10 and work in a very creative environment so dress casual \smart but with a slight edge. I like tailoring as opposed to drapey clothes!

Must look up Poetry as never heard of them..

polyhymnia Wed 09-Nov-16 16:49:57

Poetry might well be too much on the drapy side for you then.

HummusForBreakfast Wed 09-Nov-16 19:15:58

Thank you all for these great ideas. I've discovered a lot of things I had never come across smile

By any chance anyone who would know where to find jumpers (fine merino style of thing) with some warm colours instead of the usual grey/black/brown?
