I don’t think Primark is the most pleasurable shopping experience but I do think that most of the time it is worth if for all of the bargains. However I also find Primark to be rather “hit and miss”. Sometimes I go there and it is amazing and I love so many things that I come out with two massive bags and other times I can spend over an hour looking and only come out with one or two items. Sadly I think that this shopping trip was more of the latter.
For me I’m happy to shop anywhere, charity shops, Primark, discount shops or wherever. It’s not about brands or money or trends it’s about style. However even if I’m buying cheap clothes I don’t want them to look cheap, I still want to be able to wear them in a way that make them look more expensive. Sometimes you can find things in Primark and you just think “wow!” That doesn’t look like it’s from Primark.” and other times a lot of the clothes can just look not very well made and a bit cheap. I don’t know whether it’s because my tastes are changing that I’ve started to find this but I’m increasingly finding myself looking closer at the details of clothes. Like the fabric and the stitching and embellishments all give away the quality/cost of an item. I’m not buying anymore expensive clothes than I was before, in fact I’m probably saving money because now I’m a lot more careful when shopping and only buy stuff that I really love and think will last.
So sadly I wasn’t too impressed my the stock in Primark at the moment which was a shame because I always think they do better in summer and I was really looking forward to getting some cheap new bikinis which I am in desperate need of. So I only picked up four items on this trip. One was a simple grey jumper which I think I will get a lot of wear out of this winter. I was really surprised by how soft and heavy the fabric felt especially for only £6. The only other item of clothing that I bought was a three quarter sleeved blue and white striped top. I probably didn’t need this but the stripe obsessive in me reached out and put it in my basket. I really like the colours of this though and I know I will get a lot of wear out of it too. I also got these really pretty pair of summery earrings which reminded me of something you could find in Accessorize but for a quarter of the price. Finally I bought a back up pair of black sunglasses for only a pound which is great because I find sunglasses seem to break or get lost so easily.
So apologies for this not being a very interesting haul at all. And I’d love to know in the comments below what you think of Primark and if you have been able to find an great purchases at the moment 🙂 xx
