Yes, I am a Primark snob!

Now I've never been a massive Primark fan as it is. When I can be bothered I've braved it for the odd pair of socks or something for a fancy dress night, but I dont visit frequently, not if I can help it!
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 photoshoot, 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.
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!


  1. My local primark gets crazy during the summer or when ever schools are out, you literally cant walk theres so many people in there!
    And I hate the way all of their trousers don't fit me, they're realy weird sizing.

    But I love their boots and uggs! They have lasted longer than some of my more expensive shoes! And are actually waterproof which you wouldnt expect with a pair of boots costing £10 or so.
    I get the odd clotheing item every now and again and I've found them all to be really good quality. I've had my autumn/spring coat from primark for 3 years now and its still going strong!
    You really do have to search though to find the better quality stuff

  2. My friend Gina actually got in a fight there with a woman over boots. Like a proper fight.

    But I'm with you, I don't venture in there unless I absolutely have to!
