I've had a quick look - seemed to have a lot of short sleeved tshirts for an Autumn collection! Nothing really jumped out at me and said 'buy me now'! Kids clothes just seemed very samey as the last couple of years. Oh well.......!
I like the green wrap top. My directory came today and it is on the second page - and in black too and will no doubt sell out given prominent position. It's a longer version of the one that's in the summer catalogue in pink.
However I plan to do surgery on it (and my pink one). The ties at the back irritate me no end so I am planning to open the side seams and make the wrap permanent by sewiing the overlapping fabric in.
Pretty boring to me. Second that stuff about short sleeve tops. It's summer now and too bloody cold for short sleeve tops, so why would anyone wear them in Autumn? I know they are fashionable ATM though.
Kidswear v disappointing. My sil knows someone who works for Next at Head Office. Apparently they have had a real bollocking over poor sales, and have been told to get their act together. Can't say they've succeeded judging by current catalogue. It just looks same as last year...
5 or 6 years ago I thought Next were great. Now I think they are drab and boring.
I too used to love Next and still buy some things from there as their petite lengths sometimes suit me.
BUT you can see at a glance that some of the stuff is instantly "destined for sale". As I said to DH the other day, we may be petite but we're not 80. There are some horrible, horrible things in there.
It seems to go from completely bland things to over the top patterned.
I have ordered a few things for work, and they said they were in stock. Only 1 item arrived this morning though! Used to look through the catalogue and want loads of stuff, maybe 4-5 years ago. Not any more!
