Yesterday I met a friend in town, who's also called Beth and also has a boyfriend called Tom who happen to work in the same place. Quite strange eh? We went into town to find a new bag for her, and my god are we the same person when it comes to shopping, strolling around town going into all the different shops but doubling up on the same shop in a different location - TOPSHOP!
Now I've never been a fan of Primark, when I was younger my Dad would buy my clothes from there but as I've gotten older and purchased my own clothes Primark has been a shop for underwear, socks and tights nothing more. Yesterday my idea on Primark changed slightly, I'd been looking at a similar pair of shoes to what I bought in Primark in Topshop for around £28; I wondered to my little young self, why am I spending £28 on shoes when I could purchase them for £8 in Primark? For me, whether I spend £8 or £80 on a pair of shoes I will wear the sole to smithereens within a month - I walk so awkwardly it's untrue! So I purchased the £8 pair of shoes and I haven't had to use my plasters, the back is soft, the front is soft and unbelievably comfortable for new shoes. Maybe in future when I've spotted a nice pair of flats in Topshop I'll have a little search in Primark for them; that goes without saying Topshop is still my ultimate shop but Primark is creeping up there with some of the gorgeous dresses I saw yesterday!
