This Week's High Street Shopping Hitlist

You know when things look better tried on than on the coat hanger? Well that is how I feel about the latest trends on the high street at the moment. There are so many items which we could easily walk past and none of them would grab our attention.

Sometimes in our shopping ventures we do have to try before we buy and a lot of the clothes I have listed today are exactly that - get them off the hanger and slip them on. You will be pleasantly surprised!
