Many of us remain on a budget following the pandemic. Whereas others have money to BURN.
Yes, some of us are being careful with our pennies right now, so low-cost fashion is welcome until we all get back on track. Others, however, have saved enough to go out and splurge on stupid things.
Enter www.everything5pounds.com, where everything is, you know, £5. The site offers everything from menswear, womenswear to kid swear and everything in between – just check the yellow stilettos – I LOVE THEM. Slimline joggers for men and candy stripe dresses for the girlies – they have it all covered.
Everything5pounds prides itself on low prices and high quality, so whether you’re after back-to-work garms or even back-to-the-gym kits – this is the online emporium for you.
However, if your pockets are somewhat more bulging, then how about this…

Another high-end fashion firm is knocking out socks at a staggering £660 a pair.
Yes, Miu Miu has a pair of red woollen jobs with a few sequins sewn on for this eye-popping price. There is also a brown checked alternative costing a tenner less. Buyers are told: “These socks are characterized by the sophisticated jacquard knit.
So, there you have it. Both ends of the post pandemic fashion spectrum. Very far apart!
