Biba Fever?!?

OK now for a post on something I don't adore! You may remember a while ago that I put the much-publicised return of Biba in my Hot list...however having looked at the clothes I've changed my mind.

A fashion phenomenon in the Seventies, everybody loved it. And its return caused quite a stir by the people who remember it first time, and those who had heard about it from those who remember it first time. Available only at House of Fraser I was very excited to check it out.

However, big disappointment. Their Boutique collection is laughably over-priced. Hyped up as limited editions, I'm not won over and this doesn't justify over £400 for a dress. It angers me how much they're trying to charge people for simply for their name when the quality isn't spectacular and you can find better designs elsewhere. Anyone who falls for it is a mug.

Their other collections are much more reasonably priced but still nothing special and usually too expensive for what it is. Trust me, don't fall for it - Coast, Karen Millen, Warehouse, Oasis, Topshop and so many have much more original and interesting options.
