I haven’t done a Primark
shopping haul post in a long
while! I used to go there frequently, but these days I only ever seem to leave the store with tights, socks, and the odd reduced item. I know they are a cheap store, but the quality isn’t great, and their prices are going up and up. So now sometimes I prefer to buy something from Matalan instead for the same price but much better quality (don’t slate Matalan!). I did buy my lovely winter coat from Primark for only £25 though, which gets plenty of compliments! So here are a few items that I’ve purchased lately from Primark.
My local Primark in Bedford is a 20 min drive away, and parking in the town is pretty horrendous. However, they’re opening up a Primark in Bletchley, Milton Keynes within the next 2 weeks! Rumour has it it will open on 2nd December, but we shall see. They’ve kept us waiting.. the city has NO Primark! I personally prefer shopping in Bletchley town now to Milton Keynes Centre:MK. I can travel freely between all the little retail parks, park for free, go to Asda, Matalan, Ikea, get petrol, park in the town and visit the charity shops, Home Bargains, Wilko, and Poundland. Perfect shopping destination for me! And now they’re building H&M and Primark, I literally have no reason to visit anywhere else! Anyway.. here’s what I bought:
I got this lovely navy blue and white polka dot dress in the sale for only £5, reduced from £12! It’s quite summery, but the fit of it is lovely. It has quite a high neck which makes it look very conservative and 50’s, and I love the flared skirt. It also came with a very skinny tan belt too. Bargain!
Nice and simple, I bought these cute navy blue slipper pumps for £6.
This bag was also a bargain! I have one trusty black clutch bag that I use for nights out, but it’s pretty old and battered now, and a little bit small. I’ve been looking for a new basic bag for a while, and I picked up this nice big one for only £4! It has lovely dark grey sequins all over it, and a wrist strap. It zips up at the top, and it has a phone pocket inside. I can get plenty of night time essentials in this, including flat shoes!
I have this skater skirt in black and bright blue also, but this week I saw that they also stocking it in burgundy! It’s kind of a purpley plum colour, but they’re great skirts and are only £6. They each come with a skinny belt too! They’re great for wearing in winter!
These cute panties we’re in the reduced section. The snowflake pair were only 50p, and the silky, lacey ones were £1 each, reduced from £3.
Whats your favourite city to shop in? Do you still shop at Primark as much now?
