Shirt dresses are currently in fashion, and as a nursing mother I am always on the look out for cloths that allow for convenient nursing. However, the thing about casual cloths for me, is that I don’t like spending too much on them because I only get to wear them a few times during the year . (I work five times a week in a corporate environment that doesn’t permit casual dressing).
Having convinced myself that I need a shirt dress , I went online searching for one. Sadly, my search was not very fruitful because the least I saw was priced for N6,500 and my budget was less than N5,000. As a savvy spender, I try as much as possible to always stick to my budget. See my related POST on it. I decided to try out my luck with PEP. I discovered pep stores in 2013 when my first daughter was growing like fertilizer, she was only 13 months and had outgrown all her 18-24 months clothing. I needed a quick bridge before the cloths I ordered for her arrived. Children’s clothing are quite pricey in Nigeria. (Why should I buy a Jeans trouser for a 13months old toddler @ N4,000).
Anyway back to my epistle, I decided to try out PEP and I was so happy to discover that they had shirt dresses in stock at a very pocket friendly price of N2,150. The fabric was pure cotton and it was so soft. I so love this dress, that I have over rocked it. I have worn and washed it over 7 times within a period of 6 months and the material is still as good as new.
PEP reminds me of Primark in UK. They have a wide range of items ranging from kids & adult clothing, foot wares, household items. etc. So, if you live in Nigeria and you are looking for a decent, pocket friendly store, be sure to try out PEP.
