Many shops fail because they try to assume what people will think is trendy instead of selling what people want to wear.
I'm with you there Annie, I used to love buying my clothes from Wallis, they were quality clothes, excellent for both work and casual wear for me. But I wouldn't bother shoppping there nowadays, obviously because of my age, but I stopped shopping with them because the clothing they started to sell seemed to be catering solely for teenagers. skimpy, unsuitable and not of the same quality.
It seems to have morphed into Topshop, Miss Selfridge and Dorothy Perkins.All the same.
I usually shop around online nowadays for clothes, but if I want something special, which isn't often nowadays, I head for the Jaeger website. I like their clothes and they seem to last a long time.
I have bought a few really nice tops from an American website called SilkFred, who do free shipping over £50.
