Penny-Pinching Primark Purchases

I'm a big fan of Primark. Despite the fact it's not the most pleasant place to shop, they often have some lovely items at ridiculously low prices so it's worth the pain. Luckily, I live in an area with a huge Primark store, so I don't have to worry about them not stocking certain items or not having my size. 

I'm especially delighted when I discover real leather goods, as real leather usually costs a small fortune. Not in Primark! I own a couple of real leather jackets from here, the most expensive being just £25.

My first find was these soft leather pumps which I love. I've seen ones similar in places like Dune and Kurt Geiger at around £60 so these were an absolute bargain for £12. The leather is so soft and supple and they can be worn with anything.
A good pair of leather sandals is essential for summer, and although I was a bit premature in buying them, I knew I'd be wearing them to death in a few months time and at £12, they were too good to pass up. They look pretty sturdy so hopefully these wont be falling apart on me.
And finally this adorable little dress was just £5.
I love the tiny horse print and I've wanted something like this for a while so I was excited to find this. I'm planning on pairing this with a cropped leather biker jacket.
Any recommendations for things to look out for in Primark?

  2. Well I want all of these things that you've picked up in Primark! I may have to have a look on my next shopping trip. I think their light summer dresses (like the one here) are always a great buy, as they're easy to wear and so cheap, so you can afford to buy a few different ones. xxx

  9. Thing is the leather isn't just leather. There's different qualities so I doubt the leather Primark use are as great as a lot. However, I still think it's amazing to find ANY leather good in Primark especially for such a cheap price and such a lovely design. I absolutely LOVE Primark!
