MYSTERY SHOPPER is back!! The once extremely popular article created here at this very blog a long, long time ago is back amongst popular demand. To celebrate the first come back article I present a great review of a fantastic new shop. How many shopping bags will I give them; will you agree?

It is always nice to find a store that makes you want to visit frequently. You start aisle by aisle picking out what you will buy, and what’s going to be you future purchase. Once you join the update group and you know what the newest hot items are they must be added to the list too, or be bought. Maybe I should just IM the owner and ask for a flat rate, one of each to go?!

I am always on the look out for a great new designer, especially if I find they have that special element that sets them apart from the rest. On a recent tip-off, I decided to take a look at the much talked about CE Cubic Effect. Initially, I was met with a monolith of a structure that reminded me of something from the Mad Max movies.

Inside, I was met with a rather retro feel rather than futuristc. The design quality is good with a lot of beautiful hand-drawn items. In particular the jeans and casual jackets, which all seemed exceptionally well produced. I was rather daunted by the fact that there was no clear division in the shop for men’s and women’s clothing, with even some of the vendor pictures having unisex photography. I don’t do men’s clothes and very rarely wear anything that could be seen to be male personified.
