Well - quite a lot of shoppers there seemed to be herding at the same time (was there at end of school holidays) - much easier to herd there than on Oxford St. But - more practical suggestions - what about the House of Fraser (not quite if it's called that, but it is one of that group) down by London Bridge? The Linea line often has v useful nice stuff.
I have got myself a White Stuff skirt which I think I can manage to use for work, though it needs a down-toning jacket. Still thinking about that.
Oh - just remembered (it was LL's mention of flannel trousers, as Jigsaw's always used to fit me best) - Jigsaw always does its sale later than everyone else, so I think it's still on. Leadenhall Market.
Best suit I ever bought was in the sale in Monsoon, black suit trousers and skirt, lovely shape jacket, excellent fabric, the trousers hang like a dream, skirt lovely just-below-knee length slightly swishy, mmmm.... Still wear it aaaaages later.
Haven't seen anything similar in there recently though
Jones on Fenchurch Street or in Leadenhall market. They've still got some of their sale stuff in the windows. Otherwise, there is a little shoe shop in the covered arcade that runs behind the small entrance to Liverpool Street tube station - do you know where I mean? They are quite pricey, but might have a sale. Can't think of anywhere else that close other than Next or M&S...
MrsBadger, quite remarkably for me I have been seized with kind of carpe the diem enthusiasm this week for making a Fresh Start. So I have to get on quick before this most unaccustomed energy wears off and i revert to type (sloth type).
