I imagine this is going to offend quite a few people. But I hate the place!
I get really disappointed if I see someone wearing something and they tell me it's from Primark. I know I won't have it as
(1) I can't bring myself to spend money on something I know will fall apart after one wash
(2) I hate going in there.
I had to go in there earlier to get some tights for the shoot, admittedly I could have gone to Topshop but knew I'd be spending much more, and as I won't be wearing bright pink tights again, it didn't seem to make sense to spend more than a pound on them! I've never been to the Marble arch Primark, but I won't be going back! It was crazy! And it was a mess! Soooo many people rummaging through sooo many clothes, the whole place smelling of plastic, everything on wrong hangers (not that the sizes are right anyway!) ugh, it was not an enjoyable experience.
The other day someone at work was wearing some blue boots, she said they were from Primark so I thought I'd have look, I had to make joining the HUGE que worth while! I was close to buying them but after carrying them around I felt how cheap they felt, it just didn't do it for me! I figured if I spent another £30 they would last much longer and I wouldn't feel cheap wearing them!
I know people are saving the pennies these days but I say, go without for a while, save a bit and buy something decent! It will be so much more worth it in the end!
