~ Shopping in Primark can be frantic for even the most seasoned of shoppers. I'll be bringing these posts to you as a friendly guide, showing you what's in stores and when, to help you next time you shop ~
Summer dress - £6
This dress caught my eye and when I saw it was a proper old-school Primark price it went straight into my basket. It's nice and lightweight so will be perfect for Summer but I also think the colour makes it a transitional piece which will look nice with tights in the Autumn. It also has an open back and lace type detailing across the front, which drives me mad personally and means a vest is essential, but it also means it'll look cute with a bikini or bandeau top underneath. This dress also comes in white.
Mullet-style skirt - £8
I originally bought this skirt months ago, but in true Primark fashion, even though it was my size it literally fell down. I returned it, and as I was unable to find a smaller size I didn't bother replacing it. It's haunted me ever since though, and everytime I'm in Primark I gaze longingly at it. This time I took the plunge and decided to root through for a smaller size 10. And I found one! So there's the lesson with this skirt, if at first it doesn't seem to fit have a look for an alternative. The 10s I found had varying waistbands so it's definitely worth a look through.
Coloured skinny jeans - £11
And onto another Primark sizing fail! As you can see, the tags are still on these jeans because they would not do up. I'm talking the button wouldn't even nearly reach! I went straight back and exchanged these for the next size up which, to be honest, don't seem all that different except at a squeeze they do actually do up. I always stretch jeans though, so I'll persevere as these are the perfect amount of skinny on my legs. They're my ideal colour and like the green pair they're immensely soft.
Pyjama set - £8
I've been needing some new pyjamas for a while but I always begrudge spending money on things that I'll only wear to bed. That said these are really comfy, and the three quarter lengths will be good for wearing around the house in the hotter weather. They're all mix and match, with a tshirt or shorts to choose from as well.
Vest - £6
I think £6 for a Primark vest is fairly steep, but Ed likes them so I decided to pick on up for him. I was also tempted to get myself one as I love the style, but unfortunately they're just a bit too baggy and my need for functional rather than pretty bras would mean the drop-arms would just wouldn't look right.
Scarf - £4
You should all know by now that I have a real scarf fetish, and you just can't beat Primark for their price, quality and variety of scarves. I have so many animal print scarves but they all contain some sort of colour in there as well, so this time I opted for a plainer and more versatile style.
Initial necklace - £1.50
Who else remembers back at school when everyone had an intial necklace? For £1.50 I actually think these are a nice quality and manage to not look too tacky (for this sort of necklace!) And yes, my name isn't actually Tabitha, hence the L!
Nail varnish - £2.50
I didn't realise that Primark stocked other brands of cosmetics (Rimmel?!) and when I saw this nail varnish in the shade "Sorbet" I knew it had to be mine. It's the perfect pastel peach that I've been looking for; hard to pick up on camera, but for an idea of how it looks on the nails look here.
Goodie bag - £6ish
Finally, I picked up some bits and pieces as part of a friend's birthday present. Primark's packaging is looking so cute these days and I think these nail varnishes are beautiful shades and look so much more expensive than the £2 they actually were.
Wowzers I've bought a lot! In my defence this is a collection gathered over a fortnight or so, but when I was in Primark yesterday everything was still in stock! Have you been on any Primark binges lately?
