New In: Prints & Perforation

Hey guys! (I have noticed i say this EVERY time i post, i just feel like i have to greet you all before i get into my posts and since i can't write all your names it seems the best way!)

So yesterday i took a little trip to my local shopping centre and although funds are low i ended up doing a bit of shopping. I couldn't resist and I did what i usually do when money isn't really abundant, i took out £20 and headed to Primark.  I ALWAYS only go to the Men's section but i decided (much to the delight of my parents) to actually shop in the section meant for me and i found a few gems, i thought i'd share them with you all!


First up this mirrored tropical print (is it tropical? there are leaves and flowers all over it, so i think we'll go with tropical) scuba dress i found in the sale rack for, wait for it, £5!  I'm always drawn to the £5 rail but too shy to be seen delving into them, because when i look, I LOOK,  i mean through every single item type look.  I swallowed my pride and found this! I have NO idea why i was so drawn to it, i don't often wear print or colour, or like showing my arms, but I LOVE IT, it fits me so well and it is a thick stretchy material so it smooths over my bumps and lumps.  I'll probably wear this on a night out back at uni! I will never be afraid to look stingy again!

Tropical  Print Scuba Dress - Primark (£5)


It has a key hole back

Next up, this t-shirt, it's a black thin tee with a perforated front and sheer, key holed back and it was £7.  I couldn't believe i was in Primark when i saw it, it reminds me SO much of Alexander Wang's SS12 collection, and it's black so i thought it could be very versatile.  I actually think it would be amazing paired with black trousers and neon yellow sandals, but seeing as i'm not a fan of toes or heels (in the daytime) i'll leave that to the chic fashionistas and stick with my flats!

Perforated Tee - Primark (£7)

Next up this art deco (my dad called it this so i'm copying) fitted midi dress that i LOVE.  It reminds me of the Alexander McQueen Optical Illusion Dress and fits me perfectly! It sits just between my ankle and knee and i think it's perfect for my pear shaped body.  The print works to highlight your curves and i really like the high neck as i really feel uncomfortable with low cut tops. I'll be pairing this with my Converses & Docs, and layering it with a parka in the colder months. It was £10.


Art Deco Midi Dress - Primark (£10)


So i had finished shopping and saw this next purchase by the till.  Now being a Business student i knew they were cleverly placed there to make people spend more money but i had to get them.  I wanted these American Apparel socks but couldn't justify spending £8 on a sock?!  I got these all for £2 and i thought they would add little pops of colour when i wear my trainers etc.

7-Pack Neon Socks - Primark (£2)

Last up, some exciting news, after about 3 years of wearing the same pair of destroyed, scratched faux pearl  earrings i finally purchased a new pair.  I only like the ones i've taken out but £1 for 5 means they cost me 20p so not bad at all!

Faux pearl earrings - Primark (£1)

And that was it! It all came to £25 which i thought was great for all i managed to get! I salute you Primark!

Sorry this post is a bit long guys, i really enjoyed doing the photography for it and thought i'd chat with y'all a bit!  Thanks everyone for reading, commenting, following, it really does mean a lot to me!

Peace out  x
