#71 Bargain Vintage from Primark

There are many travesties in life... That chocolate is fattening, that Will Smith hasn't got a knighthood, that the weekend is only 2 days and that Primark has no online store... So once again I find myself in there to top up on fishnets (for £3 for two pairs, who needs to wash them!) and what do I see? Loads of vintage inspired bargains, that - with a little know-how and imagination - can look fabulous! So there I am snapping away on my iPhone, looking distinctly dodgy, and these are some of my findings...

This lovely little skirt is so pretty with the seaside detailing, reminiscent of 1950's fabric... Add a cardigan, some pumps and a ponytail and you have an outfit that any Bobby Soxer worth her salt would die for!

Only £8!

This pretty, sheer blouse would add a bit of zing to a wiggle skirt... Don'tcha think ladies?

And only £10!

This lovely little crochet dress has the 60's written all over it... Just think, add some cream pumps and sheer tights and for under £20 you could have a fabulous Twiggy-esque look

Only £17!

This little playsuit comes in many colours and patterns and at only a fiver each you can afford to buy all of them, this little mottled red number with the black detail was my personal choice.


Now this does need a bit of imagination to make this sheer, sleeveless blouse work but I would suggest tucking it into a pair of swingpants, the pleats would splay nicely once tucked in, but remember to pop a camisole underneath.

Only £10!

And I really couldn't resist this top as I bought it and a gingham version too! I wear mine with a pair of capri pants.

Only £6!

And finally some short shorts, perfect for summer and with a lovely nautical twist.

For the remarkably low price of £3!

But Primark don't always get it right... 
No Primark! No No No!
