Really funny and informative read about the history of so many well known brands. Mystery shopping anecdotes are hilarious

I don't get all the 5 star reviews. I really don't. The author and I are from the same generation and the first part of the book indeed was quite a nice trip down on memory lane but I couldn't care less about her personal life/background education that add nothing to the point. I actually couldn't find a point. The book is not well structured. After a while I found myself skipping parts and about 3/4, finally gave up so dull all this was.

Maybe this is because I had just finished "Shop girl" from Mary Portas which I found amazing. On that note, Mary Portas titled all the chapters with something specific like 'Caramac' or 'Hotpoint fridge" and everytime it was spot on with what she was talking about. Seems that the author of Shopped got an inspiration here however it totally falls flat on many instances.

I must be about 10 years older than the author, so I was constantly looking back over my shoulder as she describes each stage of her own shopping evolution and thinking, 'Oh yes, I do remember that, but I had moved on to... x, y, z'. This was very enjoyable, and I found the whole book evocative of the golden age of the high street from the 1970s to the 90s. For any committed high street shopper it is full of deja vu moments, written in a lovely, fresh simple prose style. It's a great slice of direct social observation, but also a vivid account of a young girl's progress towards womanhood. Touching and self-effacing - I hope there will be more from this author.

If you're someone who grew up in the 80s and 90s, if you love shopping, if you're interested in retail, or if you just like great writing then BUY THIS BOOK. you won't regret it...it's a fascinating insight into how brands and stores try to get into our wallets, with great tips on how to buy what you want rather than what they want. But the best bit is the memoir and the nostalgia trip you get to go on with the author. Fabulous.

This is such a fun and nostalgic read about our beloved high street and those fashion trends throughout the last few decades. And it's so refreshing because it's clearly from a writer who's really done the high street miles (like the rest of us have endlessly on a Saturday!). Loved it! Great read!

I absolutely loved this book! It is funny, well written and very informative. I loved remembering all the fashions from my youth and a few of my fashion disasters too! I really liked how the book took you on a journey but I also learnt lots about the fashion industry too, it was a great read.

Reading this book is like spending a warm afternoon at a table outside a nice pub, with a bottle of rosé, in the company of an articulate and charming woman, talking animatedly on a subject that she loves and knows very well. Enjoyable and educational!
