I am a label snob, I know that. I have always spent quite a bit on Erin’s clothes, I have thought nothing of wondering the designers at Debenhams ranges and just picking up sets of what I like. I also have a habit of buying a whole range. Frequently in Next I would fill my arms with a complete set if I liked the print. I think it makes sense as it can all be mixed and matched together.
Dyl is quite happy to wear whatever is on his bedroom floor. He has no preference yet for brands but I have never bought character sets preferring stripes and timeless styles. Chloe is a little like her mother and she is now responsible for buying her own clothes so it doesn’t matter what I think anyway!
However in my quest to be thrifty, this is going to be a necessity not a lifestyle choice now I have taken the leap into freelance work, I am making changes. I purposefully went holiday clothes shopping for Erin in Sainsbury’s, I have bought the odd thing in there before but this time I went armed with my nectar card hoping to find good value and high quality clothes.
And guess what? I was impressed. They had complete sets I could buy and I filled my trolley with pretty t shirts with lovely details and then grabbed the matching pedal pushers too. I bought a cute dress and found the matching hair bands. I left happy. Unfortunately I didn’t find anything for Dyl, I was looking for some long shorts with turn ups. The quality is really good and they have already washed really well – I didn’t even need to iron them!
Here are some cute pictures of Erin wearing her new thrifty fashion.
I would love to know where you buy good value clothes.
