Primark is like that friend we sometimes have, who has a wardrobe of predominant crap, with some real gem pieces – and a lifesaver collection of spare tights. The bulk of their stuff, I just wouldn’t bother buying but, on occasion, I’ve been reeled in to a ‘ZOMG SO MUCH CHEAP’ splurge and walked out with bags laden with £3 ‘bargains’ that I never needed and will probably never wear. However, this all changes at the drop of a new season: Primark gets glam. When the SS14 collection finally drops in the Manchester store, you’ll see me fighting with fellow fashionistas for these pieces:
Palm Tree Print Scuba Tee – £8
This has got me reaching for invisible cocktails – and I’m still in bed. For this shirt, I want to abandon my Snow White ‘do, go chocolate brown with beach waves, and channel the bejeezus out of Lana Del Rey. I still don’t think I’ll be getting a tan, though…
Palm Tree Scuba Skirt – £6
I was seriously hoping and praying that this was a co-ord set. A co-ord set for £14. Now I just need to pool the cash for a holiday, eh.
Mini Satchel – £6
Urr, are these coming out in various colours? Cause, at that price, I am so ready to start a collection. You cannot beat a good Cambridge Satchel Company dupe for SIX POUNDS. Sign me up, sign me up. Oh, and it’ll totally match that shirt. Win.
Green Blouse – £10
The prospect of shedding this horrible weather and my grumpy winter goth wardrobe, has me just dribbling at this shirt. I can see myself being as pastel-mad as my 14-year-old self’s Piczo site, this summer. And for this price, why the hell not?
Embellished Waist Lace Dress – £28
If this looks as good in the flesh as it does here, I might have to rebel from my usual tendency to avoid white. That detailing is absolutely divine and the ethereal colour palette is so on trend.
Burnout Crop Blouse – £10
This is another co-ord set that I’ll be snapping up. You’ve gotta love that floaty detailing – can it just be summer, already?
Have you caught the collection yet? What pieces are you looking forward to grabbing?
