We've seen Frankie from The Saturdays in one of their tops and Danielle Jonas in their jeans. Their day dresses are comfortable and fashionable, and have worked their ways into our wardrobes on several occasions. They also get new stock in three times a week, which means we never get bored of what they have in. They've also got a section on the website for creating your own outfit, so you can see if all the bits in your shopping basket actually go together. Funnily enough, this only makes us shop more, rather than less...

We've spent a large amount of time drooling over their laptop bags, iPhone cases giant coffee cups, rain coats and umbrellas. And one day when we're a grown up, we want to live in a cottage with Cath Kidston bedding. 

Cath Kidston was started back in 1993 when Cath saved up £15,000 and opened her first shop. Her re-working of traditional English country house style and her own designs led to cult status. Since then, she's collaborated with Milletts, Nokia and Roberts radio among others.

Evans is a high street fashion brand that proves that fashion is for all shapes and sizes. The plus size fashion store stocks sizes 14-32, and now stocks clothing based on body shapes, making shopping for your shape even easier.

Which brings us on to Evan's fantastic range of footwear, which is designed with wider feet in mind. Beth Ditto, lead singer from The Gossip, has also launched a range of clothing for the brand - which was as eye-catching as you'd expect from the confident singer.

House of Fraser

House of Fraser is the UK department store for new season designer clothes, homeware, electricals and beauty. If Debenhams is for the yummy mummy and her family, House of Fraser is for the city girl who loves her boardroom heels as much as her home comforts. Brands include Lulu Guinness, Lola Rose and Agent Provocateur among many, many others. For such a modern, trend-driven brand, it's somewhat surprising to hear that House Of Fraser has actually been around since 1849. They've got 62 stores throughout the UK and have annual sales in excess of £1.3bn. That's a lot of shoes, pillows, furniture, fashion and beauty! While they do sell throughout their stores and their regularly updated website, bargain fans might want to visit their eBay outlet, where some of their stock from last season is sold off at bargain prices. Overall, it's the ultimate department store to visit when payday arrives!

Isabella Oliver

Favoured by (usually pregnant) celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Carla Bruni, Selma Blair, Ali Larter,  Jennifer Garner, Jessica Alba and Natalie Portman, Isabella Oliver is the brand to go to for glamorous maternity clothing, with a body con edge. While they do have a standard clothing range too (Isabella Oliver 365) it's the figure-flattering, classic pieces in the maternity range that have caught the imagination of the celebrity elite, particularly for red carpet looks. Proof that you can be pregnant and stylish, Isabella Oliver clothing skims and slims the body - no frumpiness here! Prices aren't cheap, with dresses generally priced between £100-200, but the nature of the design mean you can wear them throughout pregnancy and beyond.

Frankly, it's the kinda of maternity clothing that makes us looking forward to being pregnant!

Marks & Spencers is no ordinary supermarket.

New Look

New Look, another high street favourite, has a wide range of clothing for plus size, tall, maternity and kids. But it really comes into its own with its affordable but fashionable shoes. With many priced at under £25, fashion fans often flock to New Look to pick up a footwear bargain. A few years ago, New Look's reputation paled in comparison to those of Topshop and Miss Selfridge, but when their focus shifted to shoes, the brand as a whole turned their image around. Since then, Lily Allen and Kelly Brook have modelled and designed for them, along with Giles Deacon. They sell fast fashion at affordable prices, making it a real student favourite. Celebrity fans of the brand include the cast of The Only Way Is Essex (in fact, Lauren Goodger is designing a range for them designed for curvier ladies), Little Mix, Tulisa Contostavlos, Cher Lloyd, Caroline Flack and The Saturdays.

Rare

Rare is a boutique women's fashion brand, often featured as a concession in department stores and high street chains.

Celebrities who have been spotted wearing Rare clothing include Selina Gomez, Frankie from The Saturdays, Mollie King from The Saturdays and Una Healy from The Saturdays. They do have a lot of body con-style dresses, but for those who don't feel quite as body confident, they have plenty of floral, flirt dresses and some cute playsuits and maxi dresses. They've also got some great accessories, with bags around £30-40, and jewellery under £10. Aside from their website, Rare can be found in Topshop, where it is Topshop’s highest selling ladies fashion concession.

Ted Baker shoes in particularly are worth checking out, and their dresses are wearable with enough detail to make them stand out.

Well, that's because they prefer to promote themselves with word-of-mouth and unusual approaches like giving away football cards, Paxo stuffing at Christmas and a can of chocolate bunny hotpot for Easter.

Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters is an American retailer with a seriously funky vibe for its men, women and homeware ranges. The stores and website are packed full of vintage-inspired, cheeky and kitschy products – think novelty kitchen gadgets, retro jewellery and distressed t-shirts. They've got fashion brands for men and women, and the previously mentioned home and gift section. The brand loves retro gadgets, and previously sold Polaroid ONE600 instant cameras and Type 779 instant film after the company went defunct. The Urban Outfitters brand is a particular hit with the hipster market. We particularly love the home section for cute stuff people coo over, and and the fashion section for pieces that have people squeeling "OMG where did you get that from!" Fans of the brand include the cast of One Tree Hill, Demi Lovato, Diane Kruger, Miley Cyrus, Kristen Wiig, Justin Bieber and the cast of 90210. A great destination for gift buying.
