Since launching The-Frugality, I have thought a lot about what it means. Affordable luxury; sacrificing for the important stuff...and I'd like to do a regular post about websites, shops and concepts that inspire me when it comes to this idea.
'Bridge' collections is an important area of the fashion market which represents the grey area between Designer and High Street; where the fabric and cut becomes higher quality, but without the extortionate price-tag.
This is where Monica & Joe step in...Founded last year (they're soon to be celebrating the site's first anniversary), Monicaandjoe.co.uk is a husband and wife team, previously working for top High Street retailers, who edit these mid-priced Bridge labels to bring us the best, new, under the radar designers. The website heralds the best of British brands such as Pyrus, as well as cool brands sourced on buying trips, including Scandinavian favourites By Malene Birger and Bruuns Bazaar.
Plus, it's happy shopping, as most pricepoints are around £200, and you will rarely find anything above £400.
People always ask me where to get a unique, smart outfit for events and weddings, but better quality than the usual High Street culprits. Monica & Joe have the answer all of those queries.
