I waltzed into the Tottenham Court Road branch of Primark last week after a v delicious lunch that included a chocolate pud, and the beginnings of one of those headaches that take over your life until you’re lying on the floor whimpering.
So yeah, v mixed emotions.
Anyway, I came out with three things. A new fax tan mitt, a pack of five pairs of Pokemon socks from the men’s section that I thought me and Chris could share (although tbh I’m shotgunning the Charmander ones), and this cute striped tie shirt.
It was bought on a whim – cos y’know, the headache was getting more and more aggressive by the minute – and I couldn’t be bothered to try and work out whether it’d suit me, let alone try it on.
ANYWAY, HELLO YOU FINE THING.
I love the blue and white stripes, but most of all I love the super flattering tie waist. It’s not only seriously sassy, but incredibly complimentary on the ol’ curves.
It was one of those moments where I looked in the mirror and was like sweet damn, Primark girl, ya did good. You did really freakin’ good.
Anyway, it costs a tenner and apparently comes in white too, so go search your local store top to bottom.
Dreamy with a pair of jeans, but also a v stylish member of the workwear gang.
And yes, in hindsight I do wish I’d switched out my trainers for something a little swisher – something black with a pointed toe and a little heel. But alas, I don’t actually own anything that fits into that category… yet. Lols.
Have you hunted out any good Primark finds recently?
