I know this doesn't exactly pertain to this thread or topic... but I've always found it slightly strange how different the prices are for Moschino Cheap and Chic than what I would normally imagine for something "cheap and chic."

I love this thread! I was starting to wonder about the wealth of this board. As a skint student I love a bargain, in fact I don't think I've ever bought anything but my boots for over £50.
I do love Primark for basics and that jacket was pretty special but I find that in London everyone ends up wearing the same thing! I have 4 friends with that jacket.

I live about 10 minutes away from Brick Lane where there's at least 3 sample sales a week. Yesterday I bought a Peter Jensen dress for £30 and a Martin Margiela tee for a tenner.
I also went to Beyond Retro (on Chesire st, off the bethnal green end of Brick Lane) which is my absolute all time favourite shop for one reason only, THE FAMOUS POUND BIN! Every two weeks the shop assistants fill it up, theres some crap in there that hasn't sold but the people working there also choose a few pieces each from the racks, which is very handy if you happen to be friendly with the staff!
Yesterday I found a royal blue puffed sleeve, high collared victorian-esque blouse and a raw silk blue shift dress for a quid each, brilliant!

i have to say...i never really understand why people don't post more reasonably priced stuff...

there are plenty of good bargains to be had out there...
and who doesn't like a bargain...?!?...

^ Agreed. Nice fashion does NOT have to clean out your wallet.

Muji! Their clothing is often reminiscent of the more basic Helmut Lang stuff (the stuff without bondage straps and paint splashes).

Now if only they would start opening stores in the U.S.

Here are a few clothing samples from mujionline.co.uk - unfortunately not very representative, but it's what I could find online. Or better yet, you can follow this link to see their FW clothing catalog from Japan in PDF format: http://www.muji.net/catalog/pdf/cata...aw_cloth01.pdf


recycled yarn t-shirt, 11GBP


men's soft brushed cotton cardigan, 25 GBP


bangle watches, 22GBP

One of my favorite pairs of jeans is from Target, Mossimo brand. I got it on sale for $8 last year.
