Turns out Primark is still très tempting…

I used to be an out and out Primarni girl. No shame, just a shed load of shoes that fell apart after three wears. But, fashion – so I bought the buggers anyway.

Then lately I was like OMFG, I’ve not been to the land of Prime for at least two years… What’s going on?! Have I matured? Is it my newly discovered love of Internet shopping (yes I’m a grannified late bloomer, but I like to see what I’m buying)?

So anyway, I went to Primark… and here’s what I learnt.

Granted, I know these little bad boys will make my fingers green in two hours time, but so would the ones from TopShop and Urban, and these were in a six pack and cost £4. A saving of around 10 squid – you just can’t argue.

OK, I only walked out with these heels. But I have these in grey and red and they’re still going strong two years down the line. Plus I have crazy wide and bulky feet (attractive) and they kinda work to cover that whole situation up. Total cost… an impressive £10!

Actual clothes

I went for basics, because I didn’t know if my Primarni game was strong enough to pull out a statement – then I found this skirt and was like, fuck it I need this shit in my life.

Denim shirt – £12 (my most expensive item)

The experience

All good so far, so I guess I’m living the Primarni dream. Well no.

I went with my cousin and God son, so this is hard to rank. Major shout out to all those papas and mamas out their shopping with their toddlers. This was seriously knackering. Thankfully our little angel was as good as gold, so we didn’t have to deal with a Primarn break down.

However, maybe it’s the lighting or the fact that people seem to be on a crazed mission to get there bargains, but you have to work for your golden gems. And there’s a lot of shouting. It’s this reason why I think a Primarni run is probs not a weekly, or even a monthly jaunt.

Plus if you think I’m going to stand to try shit on, you’ve got another thing coming. We took a smash and grab approach. Think Dale Winton Supermarket Sweep. And I’d highly recommend you do the same!

Will Primark become my new one and only, absolutely not – I’m too in love with Urban, Zara, H&M and my sanity to commit like that. Will Primark be my go to shop when funds are dry and I look like shit… Hell to the yes.
