Another Primark Purchase - Spring Suitable, Cute, Chiffon Dress for £15








   I bought stuff, as ever, that I don't really need but can't bring myself to take back. This time, it's a blazer and a dress from Primark. Both were £15. I'll go into the blazer in my post that will follow this one.

   I spotted this dress and was unsure about it at first, but I ended up buying it and thinking "...mehh...I'll probably end up taking this back". I tried it on today and I'm in love with it! I think it's cute and girly yet a bit unusual (well, it won't be that unusual as it's from Primark, but you get what I mean). It's not overly girly though, which means it's allowed into my wardrobe - I'm still a bit of a tomboy at heart.

   It looks pretty well made and well finished for the price. The fabric is floaty chiffon, peachy cream in colour, with fuchsia and black detailing and a cute ribbon that ties into a bow around the collar. It also came with a thin, pink belt. The only thing I'm a little annoyed about is that it didn't come with a slip underneath it. I don't know if I picked up one without a slip or if they just don't have them, but for £15 it seems a bit weird not to get a slip under a dress this see-through...

   I've put a grey H&M dress underneath to counteract this, which is fine for now, but I think it will look funny in some lights. I'll probably have to get a cream one. If I pop into Primark within the next week or two and I haven't worn this out by then, then I'll see if these dresses are meant to have little slips underneath (unless any of you guys know?). Overall, I really do like it despite this though. I hope you guys think this purchase is justified by the cuteness of this dress!

Ps. My legs look oddly grey, even though they are very pale anyway. Damn lighting.

  4. Hiya lovely, I bought a really similar dress from Primark just yesterday and it came with a fab nude slip (that didn't ride up!), so I'm pretty sure this one would also! Definately go and check it out because £15 is a lot for some chiffon! xx
