Anyone ever heard of "Spirit" clothing brand?

I bought a gorgeous dress in TK Maxx today. It's a floaty, silk 1930's vintage-inspired tea dress and will look great with cardi and opaques for now (bare legs and sandals next summer). Think "Toast....but for bargainous £24.99"

It is made by a company called Spirit but I have never heard of them. Have tried googling but you can imagine some of the crap that comes up hmm.

Anyone heard of them? I would love to find more things from their range if this particular dress is anything to go by.

No but I'm straight to tk maxx tomorrow

It really is such a lovely dress. The kind of find that you think only Kate Moss/Helena Christensen would come across in a vintage store in Portabello.

I was so thrilled that it was my size that I rushed to the changing rooms to try on rather than see what else they had by same label.

Debenhams used to do a spirit make of clothes iirc

doesn't tk maxx piss you off though? It does me. Only 1 of everything, and it's all a bit odds bodkins.

Absolutely. I have to have plenty of time to browse. And I can almost guarantee that I will only buy 1 item from the 10 I have taken into the changing room.

Only 1 of everything in this case is a good thing for me Don't want to see any local people in my dress! IME, there is only ever 1 of something totally gorgeous (and usually not in my size) and then 50 of the same hideous acrylic Per Una-esque cardigan.

At times, our local store resembles the place where shite clothes go to die

Thanks, Norks. Will investigate further.

tulpe I went to my Tk amxx this morning. All the dresses were piled in toegther under the banner 'evening dresses' so you can guess what sort of tatt was jammed in there. Needless to say, NO cute tea dresses.

There were a great pair of Rockport brown boots but would only fit Fatima Whitbreads calves.
