The mighty M & S
Traditionally known as the home of fuddy-duddy clothing, sensible underwear and nice knits, Marks and Spencer has never been at the height of cutting-edge fashion. So, on a recent shopping trip with my mum I wasn’t filled with joy when she asked if we could have a browse around. Even with Twiggy, Erin and Lily giving the brand a glamorous marketing boost, I still couldn’t shake the image of dowdy twin sets and sensible pants. Much to my surprise I left with a beautiful faux-fur coat and super-soft knit for a little under £100! A bargain and dare I admit it, (I’m turning into my mother) very good quality. Marks and Sparks, I’ll be seeing you very soon.
