We all know here in the UK Primark held the flame for cheap affordable fashion for a long while. It occasionally holds some jems and I am always thrilled when I find a little ‘Primarni’ skirt/top/shoes that doesn’t look so Primark!
However – for me it isn’t my go to for cheap basics or affordable fashion.
My fav place for this has to be H&M – it’s prices are not dissimilar from Primark and I feel the quality is miles ahead. Yes it can be a little higher in price for some items however overall I feel the value is incredible.
It’s fresh, fashionable and always offers some fab basics and pretty accessories – I have an obsession with ‘Pat Butcher’ earrings, the bigger more ugly and ridiculous the better. As I have already pointed out I live in black so I need something to be the focal point of my outfit. I do have a love for ‘ugly’ items, slightly odd it may seem.
Anyway I never fail to come out of H&M empty handed. I always manage to find something that catches my fancy. Here are my current favs and I will be stocking up at the weekend. Along with a decent winter coat from Zara I have been coveting – luckliy my boy is treating me to a spending trip to BlueWater (spolit girl).
AND FINALLY –
