who can't afford to shop at places like monsoon and jigsaw and have to shop at stores like new look and mk one and george?
I see some of you telling you bought a nice dress from jigsaw for 50.00 and I think what?!?! Cor, you must be rich!!!

Apart from my bra and knickers - everything I am wearing today I bought in secondhand shops. DH has a bit of an e-bay habit which he stocks with stuff from secondhand shops (he does have a bit of an eye for a bargain I must say). Now when we're shopping alone we always end up poking round them for stuff he can sell and I poke round the clothing. Got a lovely "Ann Harvey" jersey top for £2.50 yesterday. . I love a bargain me.

Ethel Austin and Primark for me and DS. Dh is allergic to buying clothes unless it has something to do with diving.
Does anyone else remember the days when places like Top Shop, Bay Trading and Chelsea Girl (now River Island) used to be dead cheap. Then they got a bit expensive. God I'm such a cheap-skate.

most of my clothes come from new look or mk one, but i do like to splash out each payday and buy soem nice things from monsoon, boden, and anywhere else really, its not the labels i look at just if i like it. regardless of where its from. the kids are better dressed than me am always picking them up lovely clothes from house of fraser, boden, monsoon, and some good bargains from ebay.
i wish i could say that i brought stuff from charity shopsbut the ones near us only seem to sell cheap, tatty clothes. the other day they had a primark t-shirt for sale for a fiver and it was only about £3 new!
dh on the otherhand, annoys me with his clothes as since i earn my own money and no longer ask him for money to go shopping, he thinks nothing of spending £90 on one t-shirt or £200 for Jeans
