As my UK readers will attest to, here in the UK clothes are big business for supermarkets. Each of the major chains has their own range of clothes; Asda has George, Tesco F&F and Sainsbury’s has TU. A little like Target & Kmart in Australia, they are great for cut price staples and the occasional designer collaboration. Fashion favourite Gok, is currently designing for Sainsburys.
So today when I went to my local Tesco’s, which is incidentally so large you can probably see if from the moon, I decided to have a quick flick through the racks. Being we are moving countries in 3 short weeks, I should be concentrating on downsizing my wardrobe, not buying more, but ever the shopper, this cute green crepe blazer caught my eye and at £22 I decided it was too good to pass up.

There are many things I will miss about a trip to the supermarket in the UK; the clothes being one, the extensive range of wine being another, but what I won’t miss is having to pack my own bags while the moody check out chick watches on.
So, do you like a new top with your milk and bread?
Have you checked out Mix for Coles? What is your verdict?
