Primark for the win

As I mentioned in a previous post I happened to accidently do some shopping in Primark recently. I'm doing my best not to spend any money right now but I saw a variety of lovely clothes that I couldn't pass up. There's a distinct retro vibe on the high street at the moment, and I'm keen to capitalise on it! 
This skirt is a light rayon type fabric and comes in bang on knee length. It's light enough for parties and summer only sadly but I'm happy to wait to wear this. It''s got a great swish factor to it!
Pretty floaty blouse with tiny flowers all over, and gathered to the sleeves and waist. This is really soft and comfy and works well with high waisted trousers and smart skirts.
Cotton peasant top. Again, one for the summer but this was reduced to £5 so it'll sit in the cupboard happily till then. There's smocking around the neck and the waist and little gathered sleeves.
30s style pyjama/lounging set with high waist wide legged trousers and a kimono top. This will also have to be a summer outfit but it's pretty special and I couldn't turn it down!
And the piece de resistance - a tweed suit with a full circle skirt, mock waistcoat in the jacket and prettily puffed sleeves. I've had lots of comments about this suit - I think it's going to be a stock item for winter!
I think I'll be popping back in a few weeks to see their new winter stock as it comes in - I think we're in for a very vintage few months on the high street!


  1. Right, I'm off to Primark! The suit in particular is to die for...I want it! I actually managed to snap the 30s vibe dress from Primark that you blogged about before for a mere £2...sadly it doens't suit me one bit, but for that price I'm going to have a good go at refashioning it!

  2. Oh my gosh, that suit is amazing.

    Off to Primark I go!

  3. Oh my wholly crumbles!!! I NEED to get my bum to Primark!! I NEED that suit!!

  4. I know where I'm going later, love those PJ's! X

  5. Wow! Love the blouses! And the PJs looks sooo comfy. Not to mention the amazingly gorgeous suit... These clothes were made to come home with you!
