Since I’m so old and mature these days, I try to stay away from “fast fashion.” But, even the oldest and wisest of us all slip some time, and I’m no exception. The other weekend I was with a friend when she asked if we could go to Primark.ย I had been once before and found nothing worthwhile, so I anticipated the same thing to happen again.

Much to my surprise, I walked out with two fabulous pieces – a sweater dress and a beige winter coat. Hooray to my winter wardrobe! I still don’t think I’ll be hitting up Primark every weekend, but I’ll make sure to check back one a season to see if there is anything worth picking up.

    Very cute! I went to Primark in October and I picked up props for blog photography as well as socks and underpants. I wish I had gotten more coz they were good quality and a steal! Many of the clothes & shoes seemed too cheap but there were some items – sleepwear especially, camis, summer T-shirts – that look and felt like decent quality. I’ll go back

      I believe the Boston location is the only US location, so you’ll have to come visit ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love the pieces you chose! I miss having a winter wardrobe, sweaters are sadly not needed in tropical south florida ๐Ÿ™

      I always claim I couldn’t live somewhere without all 4 seasons. I need as many outfit options as possible ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love rummaging in Primark. You get such a good feeling when you find something great at a very reasonable price.

      I do too, but you definitely have to be in the mood to rummage and battle with the masses to get the good pieces ๐Ÿ™‚
