Looking for quirky type clothes similar to Uttam/Yumi

Can anyone point me in the direction of online or High Street shops that are similarly quirky in style?

Desperately need some dresses/tunics to wear with my new skinny jeans and my old faithful biker boots.

Topshop - but is that where you've been buying from already? I think they do Uttam in their downstairs dept - or at least, very similar. I think everything is available on-line (?) but you will have to search.

I always pop in Topshop but it is a very small store here (no downstairs dept!) and I never see anything I like.. but thanks will have a browse online just incase.

Joy - sells uttam and yumi, might have similar.

Warehouse, h&m, French Connection sometimes worth a look, and Zara do that sort of boho look too.

Already mainly shop in H&M and when lucky find some Uttam and Yumi in TKmaxx. I'm just lost where to shop on the High Street, I had a rare shopping trip on my own at the weekend and I couldn't find any tops/dresses that I liked. Twas very depressing as normally have a one year old in a sling and a two year old in tow so totally peeved I found nothing. sad

I've now decided to shop online for dresses/tops as it will be so much easier and just thankful I found a pair of jeans to fit me whilst I was shopping on my own (oh the joy of being in a changing room trying on clothes on my own, was fab!).

Really liking the look of the clothing on Joy, thankyou for that suggestion. smile

urban outfitters

was going to say tkmaxx - that is where I get most of my yumi stuff

Just found this Joe Brown dress does anyone have it? Does it fit well? opinions please on whether you think it would gape, as can't be doing with gaping or having to wear something else under it.

I've just realised why I am having such trouble finding something I like on the High Street, it's because I don't 'do' buttons on dresses/tunics, this appears to be a big problem at the mo..

Dorothy Perkins have Uttam clothes online and it's 20% off everything today too.

Damn, the link didn't work, it meant to be a link to the Flattering Floral Dress.

Dotty P's do Uttam?! I didn't realise that, again very small Dotty P's near where I live.. will have a look online.

I have the flattering floral dress and it fits me well. I have worn it without anything underneath and it was fine.

New Look do some 'boutique brands' that have some quirky bits and pieces. Might be worth a look.
