Singer with the denim skin

I bought this dress before the Benefit event a couple of weeks ago.  I rarely get to go in Primark any more now I don't work in the city centre and faced with arriving 15 minutes early I thought I'd go for a quick nose.  I like the Bournemouth store as everything is relatively neat and tidy so it's easier to browse.  I've mentioned before that I don't tend to shop in Primark as much, as when I have big clearouts it's always the Primark items that tend to be the ones still hanging in my wardrobe with tags on but they seem to have stepped things up recently in terms of the quality and the designs.  I was drawn to this denim dress with rose print as I thought it would be nice for the summer but could also work now with tights and boots (obvs not quite the weather for bare arms yet so I did add a jacket!)


dress: primark [instore] | satchel: leather satchel company £82 | necklace: ebay £1.98
hat: vintage | wedges: office [old] - similar shoes here from stylistclick £26


The satchel in the photo admittedly was a bit of a naughty purchase.  I don't know what it is about 30% off vouchers that make me feel compelled to make a purchase.  I'm like "I could get someting for nearly half price, must find a bargain!" I'd been after a new leather satchel for a little while and had had my eye on this one from The Leather Satchel Company (on ASOS) but couldn't justify the £132 price tag.  Then it went down to £82 in the sale, and then ASOS sent out a 30% off code to Premier customers and I just couldn't resist snapping it up for £57 - albeit that's still quite a lot of money! I decided I needed a new satchel as quite a lot of my others are smaller and I can't fit my camera in but I still can't fit my camera in this one... But have I sent it back? No I haven't, because a) it is beautiful, and b) it was a bargain, remember?

Who's excited that it's nearly Thursday, ergo, nearly the end of the week? Whoop whoop! This week has been a super busy one for me, both at work and outside of work, as usual I am exhausted and counting down until the weekend for the opportunity to catch up on sleep.  On Monday we had Book Club at a cool bar in Christchurch and our Book Club discussions turned into us entering the pub quiz and coming third! (And we managed to to bag the second prize on the proviso that we enter again the following week!) Tonight Hannah came round to mine for gossips, in our PJs, with tea - two pretty awesome ingredients for a catchup!  Hope you're all having similarly lovely weeks so far.

  1. Beautiful dress. I find the same with Primark items, but they do seem to have improved their quality I think! The satchel is fabulous but we all need a naughty buy occasionally ;) x

  2. That dress is gorgeous, I may have to be a wardrobe copycat and have a look for it when I next go to a Primark.

  3. Loving this little Primark number! I never really used to buy anything from Primark until quite recently, although everyone says there prices have gone up I actually think the quality and designs are pretty good now. Sounds like you've had a great week!

  9. The base colour of that dress is gorgeous and I like that the floral is cute but not too kitsch in your face! The skater style really does suit you so well.

  13. That dress is stunning! I can never find anything that good in Primark! Sounds like a nice restful weekend - I'm off to Nottingham to see some friends, which will be anything BUT restful (and I feel like I need rest, argh!) x

  14. That dress looks wonderful on you! I haven't had the chance to pop into primark in ages, but it sounds like it would be worthwhile after reading your post! And yes weekends are always welcome in my life, so when they roll around i'm happier than ever! xx

  16. Primark is so hit & miss for me. It'll never be like it was in legendary 2006-2009. RIP! But literally the misses are never to be looked at again, and the hits are wow-bombs but so few & far between. I've seen a couple of denim dresses in there currently that are nice, including this one. Looks good on you! Stealth ninja bargain on the satchel too!
