High Street Changing Rooms: Republic

Republic.  The place of current high street fashion at good prices.  Annoyingly when I walked into the changing rooms I was taken by the sales assistant to the first of many, right by the entrance.  With a dirty mirror, curtains that didn’t seem quite so secure and with a four inch gap at the bottom [...]

It was Friday the 15th October 2010, and whilst out and about on the streets of the big city I ventured into Miss Selfridge.  This particular branch is oddly small for its location, and as such, it’s not particularly representative of what Miss Selfridge has to offer.  This one item, however, stood out to me.  [...]
