A UK Online Sales Guide – Shop 10 Iconic Brands

High St Collage

I’m an avid online shopper! It’s too hard to go clothes shopping with a toddler. I know people complain that you can’t try things on but I’m quite happy to deal with returning an item if it means avoiding a massive tantrum.

I’m also an ex- Londoner so I always check out the UK High St stores. The prices are so cheap, you are guaranteed to find a bargain especially now during their winter sales (now is a good time to look for that winter coat) !

ASOS, Next Direct  and Top Shop have already set up camp in Australia.  Here is a UK online sales guide for 10 other iconic High St brands and they all ship to Oz!

This is my fave store for workwear, ladylike dresses and underwear. It’s still the only place I buy my undies from! With a host of different brands including Limited Collection, Per Una and Autograph, there is something for everyone. I just wish they could ship their food too!

This is one of my favourite UK stores and one of the more high end High St brands. There is a store just around the corner from where I lived in London and I would pop in every week to do serious damage! I have had a few Whistles dresses for years and they are timeless classics. This brand is a bit pricier than the others on this list but totally worth it!
