£20 Primark shop

So, I’ve been trying to ‘buy less and buy better’ as my wardrobe was bulging at the seams with lots of ‘bargains’ that really weren’t that great. This has meant an end to big Primark hauls and the beginning of more careful shopping…

…well kind of!  The other day I allowed myself a visit with the rule I could spend just £20 and anything I bought needed to fit into my AW16 wardrobe.

So what did I get with my £20? Well a pretty wonderful mix of things if I do say so myself!  Take a look…

Pattern shirt – £7.00

A shirt covered in pineapples, ladybirds, stars, butterlies, hearts, cacti, eyes and much more you say? How could I say no! This is an amazing price and they also do a cute dark blue stars version. I sized up for a looser fit and it looks great with a pair of skinnies.

Brogues – £5 (was £12)

A classic brogue will never go out of style and this shoe is perfect for Autumn. I loved the no laces (I hate messy styling) and the studs add a cool edge. Plus they are super comfortable.

Leopard print blouse – £3 (was £8)

I love a bit of leopard print and this top is effortlessly stylish. Easy to throw on, with a slightly dipped hem back and the exposed zip at the back adds that bit of luxe detailing.

Gold flats – £3 (were £8)

Party season is nearly upon us and I am not a heels lover. I looked at these when they were full price and passed but for the price of a glossy magazine? I just had to!

Sunglasses – £1/pair (were £3/pair)

Ok I know summer is over but you can never have too many sunglasses. As well as a couple of designer pairs (which I keep for years) I like to have a few cheap and cheerful pairs that I can leave in the car or my handbag and dont have to worry if they get broken/lost.

So thats my mini haul! I think I stayed within my rules and have already worn the shirt and brogues loads, so for me its £20 well spent.

All available now in store at Primark

The thing I fell in love with this week…

YD at Primark glitter skate shoes – £1 (from £6.00) 

Anyone who knows me, knows I love a bit of sparkle and I also love a bargain…well in these shoes I have both!

Part of the kids range at Primark, these beauties are currently in the sale along with a pink version. They go up to a size 6 (EUR 39) too. Mermaid shoes?  Definitely a must have for me!

What bargains have you bought lately that you’ve just loved? 

Primark Haul!

Theres no two ways about it – I love Primark.
Whenever I’m in London I always make sure I visit one of the big stores and have a good shop.

My haul this week wasn’t huge but full of bargains. I’m trying to cutback a bit on the amount of clothes I have so I was more selective than normal!!!

Metallic buckle shoes – £6 (reduced from £14)

LOVE these shoes and couldn’t believe when they went through the till at only £6! A dark metallic grey with three buckled straps and a small heel. They zip up the back so no need to fiddle with the buckles. They are so comfortable and perfect with skinny jeans or dresses – I’m in love!



Sequin green jumper – £10

I love green and this jumper for a tenner will be really versatile over Christmas. Got a size 10 and its quite long (covers my bum – hooray) with a relaxed fit. Looks great with a short leather skirt.

Leopard print maxi skirt – £5 (reduced from £14)

I had umm’ed and ahh’ed about this skirt when I first saw it but couldn’t justify the £14 full price tag and it came up very long at my height. In Oxford St they only had size 8’s left in the sale but I managed to squeeze into one as it has an elasticated waist…and being smaller its length came up shorter – result! Couldn’t resist it for just £5. Going to wear it with a black crop top and heels for evening wear.

White textured dress – £5 (reduced from £12)

Love this space age style dress. Its made out of a thick jersey with a textured prism type effect. Again went for the size 10 and its nicely waisted so great for my petite frame. How I’ll style a white dress in winter I’m not sure…but watch this space!


Love them or hate them all this for under £30 is pretty amazing. Have you bought some amazing bits lately from Primark?
