Sponsored Edition: Posh 'n' Checks

Lost and Found

Not so long ago you’d regularly scour Savers for funky clothes and old charms to create an eclectic, inimitable look (it was also cheap). But as you grew up (and got a steady paycheck) something changed, and although your wardrobe and accessories remained original, they were all new.

The Real Thing

In a world of so-so’s and almost there’s, boyfriends who are only 50-percent committed, jobs with just a 20-percent chance of promotion, and foods that are 98-percent fat-free, it can seem nearly impossible to achieve it all.
