It's Your Weekly Fashion Edit - HIGH STREET HITLIST

Brrr how cold has it been? I think it's time to get out the thermals along with a big fat mug of tea to keep warm. I am sat typing this thawing out next to a radiator. Thank goodness it is so easy to shop from the comfort of your own home when the weather is so dull and dreary. These dark afternoons are much better spent on your laptop indoors than trudging around the shops.

This week has been rather quiet on the high street fashion shops, in fact it has been quite a disappointment. For the first time ever, I have less than 60 items to list! Every single shop must be slowing down now as we get so close to Christmas and people are more focussed on buying gifts for others instead of treating themselves. 

Anyway, I have still chosen my top picks for you and created this week's High Street Hitlist.



There's a great choice of frocks from Topshop this week, whether you want colour, print, sequins or the good old little black dress. And you will love the array of skirts, especially the wildflower print one - it's a beauty!
