What do you think of budget retail stores when it comes to fashion?
I mean the kind of retail store that sells all kinds of goods, usually ranging from interior decoration, household items, kitchenware to clothing. One might think that the clothes they sell are not the best quality or at least not suitable for most younger people. In Germany, we have this shop, Tchibo, which would fall under that category – originally a German chain of coffee retailers and cafés, they expanded their product range and now offer a weekly-changing range of products. Today, it’s one of Germany’s largest retail chains but not a fashion brand by any means.
Sometimes stores like Tchibo can offer a surprisingly good range of clothing basics that are perfectly wearable though. And the best thing is that they usually come at a great price (even for people on a budget) and the items pertain to certain quality standards.
Earlier this summer, I was looking for a classic denim pencilskirt without any frills and for a good price but all my usual shopping places (Zalando, Asos, Esprit, etc.) didn’t have what I wanted. They were either not basic, had crazy destroyed patches, the wrong colour or were far too expensive. Then finally I came across this one by Tchibo. It’s the perfect basic skirt and has a great fit. The black leotard is another Tchibo find which I love. I realize this is not an exciting outfit as such but I wanted to showcase that sometimes you come across great pieces in the most unlikely places.

Have you made surprising shopping discoveries lately?
Irgendwie erinnert mich dein Look sehr an ein Urlaubsoutfit! Richtig toll ist ja auch der Hut dazu (outfit-technisch versuche ich nächste Woche auch mal einen Urlaubslook hinzubekommen) :-*
viele liebe Grüße

Shops like you described are huge here in the States. We have so many of them. You can find a lot of great items if you are willing to really browse through their selections. It can sometimes be time consuming but worth it if you find something really great. I love your denim skirt. It is a classic piece that can be worn again and again.
So ein hübscher Look <3
Ich finde den Rock wahnsinnig schön! Das ganze Outfit ist dir sehr gelungen, vor allem in der Kombination mit dem tollen Hut <3
That skirt looks wonderful on you, girlie, such a great find! This is why I try not to limit my expectations for different stores b/c they can really have exactly what you’ve been looking for, proven with your skirt! I love the way you’ve styled it, too! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!
Ich shoppe gern bei Tchibo und habe auch das eine oder andere Mal Klamotten eingepackt. Vor allem für die Kinder werde ich da regelmäßig fündig.

Yes, black and denim is one of my favourite combos too! What a great skirt from an unlikely place, we have places similar to Tchibo that sell clothes too and they’re surprisingly pretty good!

I like clean casual outfits. And your black heels are so chic that I’m absolutely in love with them :))
Looks like a really nice, good quality skirt :) I love finding a new place for wardrobe staples!
You made it exciting :) I think that your shoes added so much to this simple idea, that together everything looks just great. I love it – Cheers – Margot :)
der Jeansrock sitzt 1A! Und auch wenn das Outfit schlicht ist, so wirkt es apart und man kann durch Accessoires einiges ergänzen.
Casual muss auch mal sein und es ist ein wirklich toller Fund! Bei Tschibo hätt ich nun wirklich auch nicht damit gerechnet!
