£14 OUTFIT, £35 VANS

pink vans leopard print a line skirt slogan t shirt primark outfit

My skirt was a mere tenner and my t shirt was a bargain at £4. I even lucked out on the pink vans by buying them from the kids section, they go up to a size five and are SO MUCH CHEAPER. The wonders of tax free footwear.

I would say though (and I'm not the only one), the leopard print skirt comes up so small. I sized up and it still bulges around the stomach area...lovely imagery I know.
I find Primark to be so off with sizing which is pretty unhealthy if you're conscious of your weight, which I am at the moment. I wear their clothes ranging from a size 8 to a size 14, and my friend Emma recently sent me an article showing that their size 12 jeans vary on the waist by around 4 inches per pair!

And don't get me started on their "New Improved Sizing" that they've recently introduced.....

Despite all of the above, I'll still shop there as 1. I'm poor, and 2. I'm useless at picking capsule pieces so just go cray around the isles instead screaming TAKE WHAT LITTLE MONEY I HAVE.

So here's to Primark and their ridiculous attempts at measuring out their clothing.

This post seems very passive aggressive. That wasn't the tone I intended when I first started writing this. Soz.

  1. The joys of having small feet, I love to shop for shoes in the kids section too! Especially trainers, they're so much cheaper. What a bargain outfit, it looks great. I have the same issue in Primark clothing too, especially their bottoms. I find H&M to be the same too, their sizing is so off :) xx
