I have found a few great websites to shop from (especially when shipping to Australia is available).
I don't really like heading to the shops these days unless I really have to. I find that shop assistants can be nasty and unhelpful (plus I hate standing in queues and I am very impatient)
I also particularly don't like most of the shops here (the quality i.e. made in china but must of our clothing is)..
I am quite a fan of the top-line/fancy brands but not everyone can afford it especially making a normal wage (unless I win the lotto someday).
So here you go... a few websites to check out:
