Well i get my stuff from indipendent small stores, rather than high street ones usually, because they are the only places that stock the sort of stuff i wear.(Original post by Fluffy)
Because the quality of certain 'trendy' labels is usually poorer than cheaper high street branded goods!
However, take say a Next Blouse at £34 and an Austin Reed blouse at £60. The next blouse will have has it within a few months, while AR blouses still look brand new and hold their shape after a year.
Personally I like to have a few good quality main pieces - skirts, trousers, jackets and team them with cheaper stuff you can afford to throw out after a few months, once they start looking shabby. I love Primark.

But why then is it that only the cheaper stuff i buy seems to last any length of time, regardless of label?
I have ruined 3 pairs of jeans worth £100+ each since I went to uni. I have no other way of drying clothes than in a tumble dryer, which I thought wouldnt damage my jeans because Id had them for about 6 months+ (even though it says not to on the label). They all shrank by about an inch in the leg and around the waist
