I’m really nervous about writing this post partly because it’s going to be my first fashion piece on the blog and partly because I struggled so much with figuring out how to take the photos for it. Who knew clothes would be so hard to photograph! Don’t know how the fashion bloggers of the world do it on a daily basis but they officially have my respect 🙂 Anyway without further ado, here’s my attempt at a Primark Haul.
First item ironically enough isn’t actually from Primark/Pennys but I thought I would include it as it was the only item I purchased that isn’t from Primark. These are gorgeous hand-printed jeans from Next that have this beautiful gold leaf effect design on them. The design shines so much when it’s in the sun or under holo lights. I’ve paired them with these amazing shoes from Faith that have the same gold shine to them when worn.
Piece number two was very much an impulse purchase. I absolutely love wearing knee-length skirts but they have to be figure hugging for me to like them. When I saw this I knew I had to have it because of the amazing metallic gold colour that it is. To match I managed to find these gold pointed shoes that have a average height heel on them. The colours aren’t exact matches but I think that’s ok because I think mixing metals is definitely a trend that’s going around these days.
The cold-shoulder look is a style I hope never goes out of fashion because I love anything that shows of my shoulders. Shoulders surprisingly are a great way to show skin without being to revealing and yet still remaining sexy. I know it sounds weird but it’s true especially when you add a highlight to make the tops of your shoulders pop. This top has that cold shoulder effect, with the added bonus of it being high necked meaning it will still keep you warm. Not gonna lie it is a bit scratchy but I can get over that by wearing a strappy white camisole under it.
Ain’t nothing better than sequins! I’m like a magpie when it comes to anything that sparkles. This is a high neck sleeveless top that is great to team with a pair of nice jeans for a night around the town. I like that it’s not pink pink, but rather a blush pink which is so much more of a flattering colour. I totally recommend wearing little accessories with this top so it can remain the statement piece in your look.
Speaking of statement, leather always makes a statement. However I’m not one for wearing really leather (don’t think any animal should be made into clothes) but I still like the leather look. Pleather is the way to go, I found these jeggings which I love because of how smooth and sleek they look. I hate it when pleather has that creased effect to it.
I also like that they used silver hardware for the zip details along the pocket line because I always find silver goes better with leather than gold. Gold looks amazing with velvet (but we’ll get to that) These pants are figure hugging and super slimming on the figure. I have worn them with the blush pink sequin top and they look so good together.
These next few pieces are strappy tops. Sorry but I absolutely love a good strappy top. Their so handy to have in ones wardrobe to layer with by either wearing them under sheer tops or under nice blazer jackets. This first one is another one that looks gorgeous over my pleather jeggings. It’s also this lovely olive green shade and I like that it has this V-shape detailing to the cleavage area. It draws attention to the area very subtly.
This next top is not for the faint-hearted as it’s very revealing. I personally would not wear this alone. I prefer to layer it under sheer tops or low cut tops so that it’s peaking out from underneath. It comes in the same colour as the above top but it’s more cropped and it cannot be worn with a bra so make sure you size up if your a large-chested gal.
I mentioned velvet above and I got 2 pieces that are velvet in this haul. The first is this love camisole top. This is half and half, it front half is this lovely rich black velvet and the back half is completely sheer with this lace effect pattern to it. I found this looked really nice tucked into my metallic gold skirt that I featured above.
The other velvet piece that I got is this velvet dress. I couldn’t manage getting the entire dress in the pic but the end is mid length and basic black velvet. The only really detail to the dress is this nice twist effect that is has as it’s neckline. I paired this dress with my also Primark bought 3-D flower shoes and my Lipsy London Rose Gold Watch. I think rose gold looks amazing with black velvet.
I got this top simply because it says “Maybe Never” on it. It’s a basic t-shirt body top, and I love body tops because it means when I bend I don’t have to worry about flashing anyone lolz. This is also the least expensive item in my haul, I got it for just 3 euros.
This is the last top in this haul, and it’s very much another party top that are great from events and nights out. I love wearing this kind of thing when meeting up with friends as it’s not to much. This does have a one-shoulder effect to it when worn and I’ve paired it with the Pandora Butterfly Long Chain Necklace.
Two more items, and bought of these are some version of pants. The first I actually got because I had want to by it as a set with it’s blazer jacket, however I didn’t find the jacket in my size 😦 but I still like the pants enough to get them anyway. They are this lovely satin effect dress pants that have this nice white line travelling up the legs. This is super flattering as the effect give the illusion of longer legs. Dress pants are the best especially for the nights when your feeling bloated and don’t want to wear anything tight against your tummy.
Last item I got is this pair of leggings. These are very much party leggings with their sparkle effect. Be warned the glitter gets everywhere but thank god they’re not scratchy on the inside when worn. The stretchy band on the top makes it so these are super comfy to wear.
I know it’s been a long post guys! And for those of you who have read to the end thank you. Please let me know what you think of the pics below please cause I’m super worried that they’re not good enough.
-Talk Soon xx
