Street Style: Two bloggers rocking high-street

At a recent networking event in Shoreditch and I met the lovely Ugochi Jones from avantBEAUTE and Maxine Powerz (two lovely fashion bloggers from London) who like me love shopping on the high-street.
After several drinks and gossiping about working in PR and dabbling in journalism, we got onto talking clothes and style! Both expressed that they felt that stores like H&M, Zara, Mango and even Matalan are continuing to rival higher end brands when it comes to pulling together an outfit. Rocking their high street looks with Ugochi wore a Zara jacket, Primark dress (looks like a skirt), vintage belt, fossil bag and Matalan shoes. Maxine's top and cardigan were both from H&M, with her trousers from Bershka and shoes (which were a thank you present) from Kurt Geiger. Both ladies showed that it doesn't have to spend hundreds on an outfit and that you can get some great little finds from high street stores.

What do you think? Where do you buy you wardrobe staples from? Invest in designer or go to the high-street?
