Primark Oxford Street met its match!

I took a trip to Primak Oxford Street. I fell in love. Then it broke me.

Where I live there is sadly no Primark and, understandably so, I get withdrawal symptoms. So when I go back up north to visit the parentals I normally get my fix.. However on a visit to London for the weekend I thought it was about time I finally met Primark Oxford Street. After a HUGE walk to get there we were met with hoards of Saturday shoppers, but I was a woman on a mission, so I and my friends split up so we could shop hard!

Half an hour later and I was in the queue for the changing rooms with a mountain of clothes. After another half hour wait it turned out we were only allowed to take in eight items at a time and if we wanted to try-on the rest of the baskets we had to re-queue! Needless to say I didn't bother re-queuing and just bought the items I had tried on, or that I guessed would fit.

So here is what I spent my hard earned cash on...

From left to right, top to bottom; Necklace £5, Top £6, Grey Jegginings £6, Patterned Skinny Jeans £12, Black Skinny Jeans £8, Peach Dress £5 (sale), Maxi Dress £12 (approx prices, I lost my receipt!)

I also bought a fabulous zebra-print hold-all with wheels on the end, which came in very handy taking this little lot home!

I've got to say after spending a total of two hours and about £50 in Primark Oxford Street I was totally broken, because once I stopped focusing on the bargainous clothes I noticed all the people crowded in and started to get a bit claustrophobic!

Have you visited Primark Oxford Street? Did you come home with lots of bargains or did it break you?

  2. Primark is certainly the tye of place you've got to have some time to have a real rummage, I thought that would be right up your street!

    It is quite hit and miss though - luckily I hit this time :) x

  3. I don't think I could cope in there, the one in Liverpool is bad enough. I only ever go in there when I can get there for the 1st hour of the shop being open before the crowds flood in. Can't hack it after that.
    Love the choices though, some great buys
