Primark Proves Its Worth

Despite Leeds bursting with culture, I’ve convinced myself yet again that shopping is the only way to pass the time and this week I found myself with a few hours spare rummaging through the rails at Primark. Primark or Primani to a few is best known for their affordable fashion on a budget and although [...]

What to Wear on Christmas Day

With the big day now under a week away, it’s one of the few days a year where its acceptable to stay in your new fairisle pyjamas and reindeer slippers while you eat your body weight, and everyone else’s, in festive treats. Or is it? My Christmas days are a casual affair, not quite as [...]

Ode to Primark

“Why are people queuing outside Primark?” I asked a friend during a Sunday shopping trip a few weeks ago. Is something happening? A new collection? Is the ultimate Christmas jumper being unveiled? No, they were just queuing. Tourists and locals alike. Taking pictures outside those renowned flagship doors.  The ‘bargain’ shop now internationally famous thanks [...]

Fresher Fashion

You’re moving away from your home city and have a million and one things to worry about; making new friends, paying bills for the first time and having to navigate your way around different streets. These are the primary worries for most fresher students but once you’ve settled in and attending lectures through the day [...]

Pyjama Party

For the past few weeks, I have been thoughtfully toying with the idea of buying a pair of patterned trousers. Yet every time the daring and brave idea crept into the ‘fashion’ section of my brain, an image also sprung into the part of my brain labelled ‘sensible’ (a small section I guarantee you) of [...]

Loud Statement Rings

When it comes to jewellery I am anything but subtle, in this case, less is not always more. I love wearing chunky chains, having rings adorn my fingers and wearing earrings that are big enough to rival the great Pat Butcher.   One of the looks for this year is again going to be tribal, [...]

Does Size Matter?

No, not in THAT way. I’m talking about how, when you go shopping, it can sometimes feel as though finding the right size jacket, trousers or dress can seem more like a mission impossible. All we’re asking is to be able to find clothes that fit, look good and come within budget, yet I seem [...]

Primark To Set Up Shop In Selfridges

Primark, or ‘Pri-marni’ as known by most is set to open up a 1,000 sq ft concession in two Selfridge stores in both Manchester and Birmingham. The idea – to attract bargain-hunting shoppers to Selfridges, the high end department store.   The deal will see Primark selling a collection of clothing in Selfridge stores in [...]

The Investment Piece

Investment pieces, clothing staples, capsule wardrobes. We have all heard these terms banded about. So what are these “timeless essentials” and are they really worth saving for? A wardrobe essential, in essence, is an item of clothing that is purposely bought with the intention of wearing and re-wearing for the foreseeable future. Its intent is [...]

Seasonal Printings

It seems as though summer is officially over, even leaves have begun to fall from their trees. However, I am still optimistic that Autumn/Winter will be bright and bolder than ever before!   Block colours are still going strong for the season, which means your royal purples, orange reds, emerald greens and citrus yellows will [...]
