God I went there today. It's great. I'll post some pics later. Just leggings and dress tees, but still-so cheap. And as long as you stick to certain items, you can't tell.

This is quite possibly the oddest thing I've bought in Primark. I usually only go to Primark for basics like T-shirts, leggings and the like but then I spotted this in the sale rack for 2 POUNDS! Everytime I wear it, people always ask what designer it is because it looks like some edgy designer deconstructed three t-shirts and racerbacks to make this dress. When I tell them it's Primark, they grab the label at the back because they think I'm lying!

What is Primark? A competitor to H&M? Or a superstore that sells everything, from dishwashers to deconstructed RTW?

And why is it so cheap?

^Primark is a bit like Target except it just sells clothes. In recent years, fashion magazines like Vogue have been declaring certain Primark items to be must haves so it has risen in profile. It is the bottom of the British high street market though - prices much cheaper than H&M yet the quality is comparable. I don't even want to think about how they get their clothes so cheap - sweatshops all over the globe? It has defended its manufacturing ethics though in the press many many times so who is to say?

It can be a bit of a jumble sale, and sometimes its a bit pants....but I find a lot of really nice cheap shoes in there. Got some hugely comfy silver ballet flats for £5, and some ankle strap brown peeptoe wedges for £6 last week.

French knickers for £2 each, gel padded bras for £5 :p

I get a lot of work clothes from there, combats and long tshirts and vests, even if they only last you a couple of months its no biggie because they're so cheap and cheerful.

Some Primarks resemble a flee market but they're good for items you don't plan to wear to much, everyone keeps mentioning their ballet flats I'll have to check them out! I personally love their PJs and socks!
