I love the High Street.
I like its affordability and range of styles. I do think you get what you pay for, and that if you bought a top from Primark for £6 and one from Topshop for £26 then the Topshop one will win in terms of wearability hands down. However, that does not stop me buying the £6 top, I’m just more than likely to throw it away and replace it more carelessly that I would the Topshop one.
The nice thing with the high street is that there is literally a price tag for everyone one, and if you get the right store at the right time you can find some really good clothes and accessories.
I tend to wear pretty plain things that I can either dress up or dress down. I very rarely actually follow any kind of fashion trend…if I’m not comfortable wearing it then I won’t bother paying good money just because someone else looks good in it! Years of experimenting and frustrating shopping trips have taught me that not every style is going to suit me.
