Collective Primark Haul- June 2013

So in my absence I have of course snuck on a few shopping trips, and my debit card has accidentally fell into numerous card machines (I should be saving more money, and am off to London again tomorrow, whoops!) Naturally I therefore have some bits and bobs that I fancied showing you guys.
Personally, I love reading Primark related blog posts to get an idea of what's in store before I go so that I can hunt things I've seen online down when I get there,  especially since I don't have the pleasure of living near a Primark myself. Therefore, I decided to show you all what I've been purchasing from Primark recently....
I purchased these beautiful monochrome (I actually can't get enough of monochrome) heels for a bargain price of only £12! I haven't worn them out yet, but from wearing them in the house I think I'll save these for occasions where I'll be mostly sitting down since they aren't the most comfortable shoes in the world to say the least...

The shoes are a snakeskin type texture on the white parts, and faux suede on the black parts. They are so similar to some that are in Zara at the moment, and the price really cannot be beaten considering they're good quality and don't look like they're from Primark at all!

Sticking with the footwear I also purchased these black faux suede flatforms which I am absolutely in love with! These are so versatile, and I can see myself getting so much wear out of these. I'm already planning outfits in my head that include these, and just hope the weather warms up a bit soon so I can wear these over 'summer'. They were only £10, which is incredible, as Topshop are selling similar shoes for around £30, and Primark also stock these in a beautiful coral colour.
The only downside to these is that I've heard from others that the toe strap is prone to causing blisters, although obviously I can't confirm this, but I think i'll just buy some of those shoe cushions and hopefully all will then be well!

If you read my 'Monochrome Accessories' blog post, you'll know that I've been after a white satchel bag for a little while, but couldn't bring myself to spend over £100 on the Cambridge Satchel Company version available on Asos.
I found this version which is absolutely perfect, considering I'm not sure how much wear I'll get out of it in the long run, and for £9 I could afford to buy it as an experimental piece.

I also purchased a second bag, which I thought would be nice for summer. This faux leather tassel/ fringed  duffel style bag with studs has an adjustable strap and just enough room for the essentials, and encourages me to not put so much unnecessary rubbish in my bag for a day out. Best of all, it was only £8!

This black and white damask/ wallpaper print skater dress was £15 and is right up my street since I can wear it with so many different items I already own. I think the pattern is stunning, and I don't have a similar dress already so I had to buy it!

I've also been looking for an oversized denim jacket that I can just through on for when it's warm but a bit windy, as I usually just live in my faux leather jackets which can be a bit too warm in the summer months.

I'm also really into acid wash right now, and some of the 90s trend, so this £16 Primark number was perfect.
I purchased my regular size, and the fit is a larger boyfriend style which I think looks really effortless. I like to roll the cuffs of the sleeves up when wearing mine.

The last thing I purchased was this oversized chiffon button up shirt. It's a lovely taupe- grey colour, and has roll sleeves, which makes the style of the shirt look very 'Topshop-esque' which I love. The material isn't amazing quality, but for £8 I'm happy, and if it's worn with better quality items it fits right in and doesn't end up looking cheap. The fit is flattering also, and it's available in black too, which I might pop back to get tomorrow!
Apologies for the creased-ness in the photo by the way- I've been wearing it a ton and just dug it out of the ironing pile to show you guys since I love it so much!

And that is everything I've purchased from Primark, (with the exception of stuff for my little sister and brother). I think they've got some really lovely things in store at the moment, and have been impressed every time within the last month.
I hope you are all well and always love hearing from any readers, so don't hesitate to leave a comment. Also, I hope you liked this new style of post, so let me know if you did!
