aha! I can't stand hippy-y type stuff :p:
Lol. I only like it in small doses, i.e. 'floaty' floral dresses/tops... I still wouldn't buy anything from Next though due to previous reason, lol. I saw a skirt in there for £40 and it was nothing special...

Oh, I like floaty flowery 'tea'-type dresses :p:, I thought you meant more odd patterns and stuff.

But yea, they're waaaaay too overpriced. The only next stuff I own has been bought in sales or is jeans. :/

I really don't like next, its just too conservative for our age group I think. Hate all those chavvy stores like quiz, and especially jane norman- 35 quid for a jumper that looks like its come off a market stall? No thanks!

My french teacher once told me she thinks of H&M as hit and miss, because some of the stuff is really good, and some is just awful.

I don't like River Island either, in general the clothes over priced and much too chavy.

I'm a jeans and tee girl myself, I'm more about the clothes than the shop it comes from.

Bay Trading! It really is god-awful! The stuff in there always seems really cheap and tarty.

Plus I'm rather against them because I went in with a friend recently and tried on some jeans. Only size that fit were a 16. I'm a 12. I hate shops like that.

(Apologies if I've just offended anyone!)

I'd never buy anything from a genuine designer goods store. I don't know how people can justify buying a $900 pair of boots, for example. It's craziness!

I do like my reasonably priced brand name clothes though, so anything no-name that's sold in a no-name store, I don't go into.

Having previously worked at Jane Norman for a couple of years, I can truly vouch for the awful quality of their clothes. Every single thing will shrink in the wash slightly and lose its shape, and all knitwear will bobble after about 3 wears.

Really? I love Jane Norman, it's the one place where the size 10 dresses are perfect for me. I got one in their sale today, and yes it clings, but all in the right places. I love it, it makes me look sooooooooooo slim!!

I have a corset top from there too, and yes that is quite clingy, but again, it really enhances my figure and I've had loads of compliments for it.

I've not had that problem thus far, but then I just have going out clothes from them which I tell my mum to dry clean when I get home :p:

Some of the 'fluffy' knitwear does look like it will bobble tho.
