When I was up in Yorkshire over Easter I tried so hard to find something to buy, but sods law kicked in and I couldn't find anything I liked. Nada. Not even in the cosmetics company store! Well actually, I lie. I did see a beautiful bag, the most perfect bag in the world apart from one thing, the handles are short. People are sick of me talking about it on twitter now but I'd like your opinions on carrying a bag on your elbow as opposed to on your shoulder. My question is, will I look stupid carrying a bag on my elbow? Answers in the comment section below thank youuuu! ♥
Anyhoo, I digress. Yesterday I decided to wander into town to have a mooch around Primark in the hope that I'd find some of the pretty things that have been popping up on blogs recently. I have a love hate relationship with Primark. I love the prices & I love the variety. I don't love that the staff in my local store need some serious customer service training; a smile doesn't go a miss every now and then does it? And I also don't love that people just throw everything on the floor; you wouldn't do that in Vivienne Westwood would you? Heck, you wouldn't even really do that in Topshop. But with all that said, the prices are worth the extra hassle.
The first things I picked up were some gorgeous shoes. I've had a big shoe clear out recently and sadly my most loved flats have had to go to shoe heaven. Sad times!
I live in flats. I'm 5'8 and feel ridiculous in any kind of heel. Plus flats are comfy, three cheers for comfort! These beauties are lovely to walk in and look how pretty they are! I was pleasantly surprised to find the size 8's were far too big for me so these are a 7. Now this has been happening in lots of shops. Either my feet have shrunk, (is that even possible?!), or vanity sizing has well and truly kicked in! Either way, I love these and they were only £5.
These have a much more subtle floral print and are a light grey & gold colour. I bought these to go with a navy blue dress that you'll see in a moment. These were £5 also.
I think these are my favourites, black with bright pink roses are a winner for me. Again, comfy to walk in, super pretty and only £5. Ooh, I do love a good bargain!
Next I got three pretty dresses that will be perfect for summer. Now, I didn't really need 3 more dresses neccessarily but shhh, that's not important!
This one is quite short by my standards, it sits about 4 or 5 inches above my knee so I shall be pairing this with leggings. You slim legged beauties will look lovely without but sadly I can't work that look at all. I couldn't leave this in the shop, it was the last in my size and only £7.50.
This dress is surprisingly well fitted. It nips in at the waist and skims over my hips and is a really nice soft kind of jersey material. Laarvly! This was £9.
Finally I got this super pretty Navy Blue dress which will be oh so perfect for dinner & drinks at the beach in summer time. It would also look nice with that damn bag I'm lusting over. Don't forget to tell me if I'd look a complete tit carrying a bag on my elbow! I'll shush about that now, promise! This was £11.
Oh and I also got a pair of black plimsoles which I forgot to photograph. They're not very exciting but very practical & they were only £2! So i got all that for just less than £45. Roll on summer time ♥
