The Trials and Tribulations of Shopping

Hey there fashion lovers!
Okay so as you’re all probably aware – I have my ups and downs with shopping experiences (just like everyone else, to be honest). Today I’m talking about my recent shopping trips and what I find the easiest and hardest things to buy on the high street… I’m sure you can all find something in this post to relate to!

Let me start with a little anecdote. Many people have what I would call ‘nightmare shopping experiences’. However I’m lucky to say I haven’t been in such a situation. Rude shop assistants, bad clothing organisation and dodgy changing rooms I have come across.

A couple of days ago I decided to go shopping with a friend because I needed some new business wear clothes. With a tight budget, Primark, New Look and H&M seemed more of a realistic option over the likes of Topshop, River Island and Mango. However what the hell is happening to Primark? Clothes on the floor, massive queues and staff who are as helpful as the staff at McDonalds.. which if you haven’t clocked, is useless. As a multi-million pound business the least they could do is make sure their clothes aren’t getting trampled on BEFORE they are sold! Grrr.

The easiest and hardest garments to shop for on the high street
In my opinion the easiest thing on the high street to buy is a t-shirt. Printed, laced, embroidered, different sleeve shapes. It’s all there – there’s literally heaps of stuff to choose from. Best thing of all is that t-shirts are made in tons and tons of different sizes, therefore there’s a size to fit everyone!

Now onto the hardest thing to buy on the high street. I’m not sure about you, but for me it’s definitely jeans. Jeans come in all different shapes, sizes and colours. Skinny, boyfriend, bootcut. Sizes 6 to 20. Classic denim, bleached denim, dip dyed, washed out. The combinations are infinite and so seems to be the amount of jeans on sale on the high street. You can find really cool jeans on the high street, no, that is not the problem. The problem is the sizing. It seems everyone has a problem with the size of jeans – they’re either too short, too long, the waist is too big… there’s always something! And that’s why I hate shopping for jeans!

So there are my shopping trials and tribulations laid before you all. What’s your own problems with the high street? Think I’ve missed something or actually have something positive to say? Drop a comment below or tweet me @madfashionlover
