Predominantly Primark Outfit - Grey Skater Dress Like TOPSHOP For £8!

   






 Dress - Primark
Cardigan - Next 2 Nowt (Miss Selfridge potentially?!)
Belt - Primark
Tights - Primark
Ring - eBay
Necklace - Forever 21
Boots - Topshop 
(Sorry for lack of shoe-showing.. I can rarely seem to get full length photos in my room!!)



   I'm pleased (and proud) to announce that all of my essays for this terms have been completed and handed in! Just two more essays and two exams and my second year of uni will be over - it hasn't half gone quickly. So, expect slightly more regular and better quality blog posts, at least until I start the next batch of essays!

   I made another order from Next 2 Nowt, and again, I'm really impressed by the quality of clothes and the service. This cardigan looks like it's from Miss Selfridge (from what remains of the label, which they remove to prevent store returns), but was only £12.

   I'd seen this Primark t-shirt dress popping up on a number of blogs over the past few days. It's very similar to this dress being sold on Topshop for £25. It is a slightly different colour, but  spending £25 on a simple dress made from bog standard t-shirt material on my student budget seems crazy, so I snapped this one up at a just £8 straight away. There were a few midi versions left in Primark too. Fingers crossed Primark decide to bring out some other colourways as I love it! I found that the sizing ran slightly large though - don't know if anyone else found this? - so it's probably best to try it on before buying.

   The tights were quite a random purchase from Primark for £3.50. They're almost legging-like in thickness and are a maroony colour. The inside is a kind of fleecy, soft material - so cosy! From what I remember there were black and navy varieties too, which I was planning on picking up too after trying these on. I'm not so sure now though, as I've just taken them out the washing machine and there's some bobbling already on one of the legs. It's not hugely noticeable, and I'm not sure if it's from washing or wearing.

   I'm off to eat some of my leftover lasagne now... although I'm not sure if I can face it as I ate so much yesterday!

  13. Always wanted that dress, didn't know Primark did it, may have to have a browse soon. Sometimes the simplest dresses are the best tbh..
