pennyroyal tea





dress: primark
jacket: primark
necklace: primark
hat: H&M
rings: jwlry

...So I didnt win Euro Millions so I'm still here sulking in the UK. I've decided to go on Holiday again soon, dont know where or when, but I shall. Went for lunch with my friend today in town which was nice. I had pizza and chips, keeping it classy 2k11! Full on Primark outfit today too as I even wore Primark shoes, It baffles me how people disregard Primark so much when if you take 5 mins to look you find sweet little bargains. This lace long sleeved dress was a fiver and the necklace £2.50!

Going to Merry Hill tomorrow in the vain excuse to find something suitable to wear to graduation. I want something pink and my big fat gyspy weddingish. The ever popular five ring mix in my shop are back in stock, so if you've pre-ordered they are going out tomorrow!

PS. I've had so many people asking about the link to my eBay etc, I will post about it when they go up, I've not photographed or even thought about uploading stuff yet, be patient, of course I'll share it though!

  34. Primark!
    The one near my uni in Manchester is huge and very good but it is always rammed. It's really good for sheos and denim jackets but some of the items in Primark I just think "Who would even DESIGN that?" and I question who their buyers even are haha.
    Again, I'm REALLY loving your hair right now. Dirtylittlestylewhoree just posted you on her tumblr which is why i knew you had a new post haha

  37. i really like your blonde dip dye. it looks amazing on you! beautiful outfit and super cool necklace! i can't believe these things are from primark. we have a primark store, but the clothes and accessories are not that nice. so i think the primark stores are different in every country. i'm so excited of london, where i'll definitely visit primark :D

  51. That black dress is really cute. I'm an all-black-outfit addict, so I love this. You're right about Primark though. I do think people like you (and various other bloggers) do seem to have a knack for finding the good things (or just have the patience to look through the mess!).

  55. I love this whole look, very grungey? Really want the cross & the dress, asif they're from Primark I thought at first glance either Topshop or ASOS xxx

  57. Well I'm the opposite. Hoping for a My Big Fat Gypsy Funeral sort of vibe for graduation. Black, booby, short. Shame the cap means I can't wear a tiara.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love your necklace and your lace dress, it's such a bargain at a fiver! I agree with you, so many people just think primark is cheap and tacky, and a lot of it isn't, and as you said, you can find great bargains if you look a little.

  60. I am SO jealous of your hair! I've ombred mine but didn't go as high up, i'm redoing it next week though. The outfit looks really nice on you aswell <3

    ReplyDelete
  61. seriously considering ombre'ing my hair due to the hottness of yours. go to ireland! may not be the most exotic/sunny place on earth but the people there are so laid back and you will just fall inlove with the accent which ever part you go to.

  64. Gorgeous!!
    Loving the whole Primark outfit :)
    I agree with you about people disregarding Primark just because the prices are low!!
    I shop there alot and find lots of outfits that are similar to clothing out of Topshop and H&M.
