Our Infamous High Street Hitlist

Are you getting fed up with the high street fashion? We are. We don't want to dress like Rita Ora or Little Mix. Please give us clothes that we can wear when we go to the supermarket, when we meet our friends for lunch and when we go to the cinema.

I have had a very thorough search of the high street for this week's hitlist and I have managed to find 43 lovely items hidden amongst the bounty of bralets and hotpants which seem to be flooding the stores at the moment.

How are you feeling about shopping on the high street? Are you tired of the 90s throwbacks and lack of "normal" clothes? Let us know your views.

But before you do, take a butchers at this week's hitlist.


Samantha and myself have fallen in love with the grey backpack below, it is ace; a definite must-have for us. The silk pinafore dress is amazing, the back of it is the same colour as the lining - utterly stunning!
