For me it's Monsoon, Next and Per Una (not a shop I know but I hate the range)

monsoon has some nice plainish things tucked away amongst the sequins and frumpy skirts i think.....

maidamess Sun 13-Jul-08 20:28:55

Oh yes Next. And Marks and Spencers style is awful. Reiss manage to make trendy clothes look spectacularly square.

don't like Next,Per Una but don't mind Monsoon

I live in a small market town where the only clothes shop is Dorothy Perkins. I can't stand the lurid colours and strange flouncy bits.

I never see anything I like in Monsoon,per una,next,dotty p, east or fatface

MaryAnnSingleton Sun 13-Jul-08 20:32:39

agree about Fat Face a lot of the time -but every so often there is something I like (at the moment there are some trousers that I covet)

Jewelsandgems Sun 13-Jul-08 20:36:42

agree with per una and dorothy perkins.

For me also Wallis is always may too mature.

Have bought some nice silk kimono tops from monsoon, but agree sometimes everything looks very frumpy.

Next,Dorothy Perkins,Jane Normanhmm what is that shop about?

DrNortherner Sun 13-Jul-08 20:38:55

Lol at ane Norman. Ok if you are 15 and a size 4 I think.

Don't know when I last bought anything (other than underwear) in M&S

expatinscotland Sun 13-Jul-08 20:39:56

River Island.

It just all looks like cheap shite.

does toast have shops ?

SilentTerror Sun 13-Jul-08 20:43:12

I find Warehouse shops incredibly dark.See nice dresses on the website,but in RL they look awful in the shop.Well,they would if I could see them!grin

TsarChasm Sun 13-Jul-08 20:44:28

Well if we can have catalogues then Boden with that creepy Johnny bloke.

Jewelsandgems Sun 13-Jul-08 20:47:29

Boden! Yes, totally agree!

Toast has a shop in bath. V expensive tat.

Loads - Per Una stuff is gruesome (I like M&S Limited Collection though); River Island - diamante-hell; Jane Norman and Morgan - pink and foul; Dorothy Perkins - I don't think their range ever changes, it all seems to be cheap looking t-shirts and hoodies. Wallis is frumpy and everything (even the Petite stuff) is massive; Next - the colours are so horrible, lots of things that seemed to have been inspired by vomit last time I looked.

TsarChasm Sun 13-Jul-08 20:51:48

I don't get on with TKMaxx. I always feel defeated and don't know where on earth to start in there.

SilentTerror Sun 13-Jul-08 20:52:05

Wllis jewellery quite good,but clothes seem frumpy when seen in the shop,yet can be ok in magazines.
New Look is the same,you see ok pieces in magazines,but the shop has harsh lighting,cheap fittings and the clothes seem all squashed together.

MaryAnnSingleton Sun 13-Jul-08 20:54:05

oh yes, TK Maxx does my head in - I can't cope with it

janeite Sun 13-Jul-08 20:56:48

In fact, this thread is making me realise how few shops I actually DO like.

BettySpaghetti Sun 13-Jul-08 20:59:16


Next and...


SilentTerror Sun 13-Jul-08 21:05:35

Agree re TK Maxx.I cannot be arsed to rummage.
Next is always the same,and everyone wears it.
Dorothy Perkins has polyester trousers and lurid t shirts.
Per Una def case of an over egged pudding,but have found Autograph good for trousers.
