The indispensable shoppers’ style guide

Picture the scene. You’ve slept in late on a Saturday morning. You stumble into the kitchen, put the kettle on for tea and horror of horrors, the tea caddy is empty. You check the larder for those disgusting vegan teabags your father went to all that trouble to post to you but even they’ve disappeared.

So you weight up the pros and cons. Get dressed and go to the supermarket or live without tea. Easy decision eh?

You run back upstairs, clean your teeth, run a comb through your hair then dash back to the bedroom to rifle through the washing basket for something not too smelly and stand in front of the wardrobe, trying to decide what to wear. Well, that kinda depends on which store you’re heading to:

Debra Jackson [of Alexandria] said she likes shopping at the Dollar Palace because it is convenient and casual.

“I don’t have to get all dressed up like I’m going to Wal-Mart or something,” she said, adding she shops at Williams’ store “to pick up my cleaning supplies.”

    Good heavens! Who dresses for Walmart. I mean, other than popping in there nude, it’s pretty much anything goes. Maybe we can pop into the Family Store nude, then.

    oh my god – talk about downmarket!! Personally I know I’m on a desperate day when I’ll go to the supermarket in trackpants and trainers and no makeup.

    I am more than happy to nip out in my pjs and do the odd bit of shopping. I think that my sushi patterned pjs are particularly popular with the local deli owner!
