When I say that I had a traumatic experience in Primark, my best friend would understand. Plenty of "umphs" and "grrrs" were uttered and the odd rude expression might have inexplicably come out too. In short, I tried on about 15 seriously pretty dresses only to find their fit absolutely horrid. As well as being devastated - I don't think Primark clothing is made for women with any sort of chest - I also struggled to get the darn things off. All fun and games.

Despite this, I did come away with some finds. The one dress that looked semi-decent just happened to be my favourite print so that was a blessing, and the £5 necklace is so beautiful. I also couldn't resist some items from the home department, and the cosy socks and slippers were last minute treats.

Have you found anything pretty in Primark lately?

  2. I find their dresses do come up small so I usually go up a size but saying that I do have no chest! Some lovely pieces x

  3. Haha I definitely have the same reaction to Primark, go in with the best of intentions and come out feeling angry and swearing that I'll never go back!
    Love the floral dress though, will have to have a look for it next time I'm shopping. x
