i hate the word recessionista, if primark is your thing then great. its not mine. look and think outside the box in terms of the places where you look for clothing.i've found some of my favourite pieces in the mkst unexpected places. use it to define your style, BE CREATIVE

The word is stupid to me because I have my habits which happen to be working on a students budget! I buy what I want when i can where I can! when your walking to the register just think about it your going to walk put worrying about how to pay for it or something else it aint worth it! look in your closet and get creative!

Ppl just need to stop looking for others for inspiration and just inspire themselves. different stroke for different folks. if buying 10 dresses for the price of 1 is your thing, why not do it! ppl are too buzy trying to ascribe to all these quasi expert advice, that they stop pleasing themselves. Buy what u want, if it looks good to you, bump evyone else, who gives a shit how much u paid.

The word to recessionista is so cringe worthy something inside me dies, a lot, everytime I hear it. and yes, NO to Primark! (apart from tights..which are okay...) x

I've never come across the word recessionista, but just comparing the definition from the pub quiz and your definition just proves to me further that people can be so-above-the-surface-shallow; People do understand deeper words ya know! I've been wanting to spend more & more each day.but haven't bought anything.yet.Online shopping should get me through this, so no thanks primark! great article btw

you're so right, the recession doesn't have to mean dressing only in outfits from the local oxfam shop (aka old primark crap primarily), but it's a great reason to rework your old wardrobe in a new way. chictopia is an awesome inspiration for credit crunch stylings! x

I agree with your defention of the word much more than th eone your pub quiz gave.
