Dress: Primark
Belt: H&M
Shoes: Kurt Geiger
Necklace: H&M
Ring: Primark

I’m sure you all remember the grey t-shirt dress from Topshop which was doing the rounds on blogs a couple of months ago. I loved the dress at the time and even tried it on in the shop, but I was reluctant to pay nearly £30 for what is a very basic dress. I’m very glad I didn’t end up buying it as when I was in Primark recently I spotted this very similar dress for a mere £3. Yes, £3! As well as this grey dress, I picked up a black and white striped version too (which, for some reason, cost £8 instead – I would really like to know the logic behind Primark’s pricing system…) as they are perfect summer dresses but will also be great for layering with leggings and cardigans if the weather’s not so great.

The shoes were a bit of a bargain too, I bought them ages ago in the Kurt Geiger sale. They were reduced from about £120 to £30-something. I couldn’t say no! Usually I stick to cheap heels (New Look’s are my favourite, I usually find them really comfy and easy to walk in) as I am the worst at making a huge mess of shoes on a night out, but I really liked these and decided they were too much of a bargain to pass up. I think I might reserve them for ‘occasions’ rather than just normal nights out, hopefully they’ll stay in a better state that way! Or wear them to the pub, like I did with this outfit from a week or two ago, which is a much safer environment for nice shoes than a club!

Have you found any good bargains recently?

    I love this outfit! The necklace is so nice and colourful! That's a great bargain on the KGs, good idea to save them, I mean, who really sees other peoples shoes in darky clubs anyway? Better to wear then where they can be shown off! 🙂 xo

    I hve the exact dress except I bought it before it was in the sale, I also have a the purple version which was in the sale at £3 and I love them both, they're so easy and comfy to wear. I love your shoes! xx

  • Those shoes are amazing and what a bargain price too! I am the same and manage to mess up my shoes on nights out as well, I paid £50 for one pair which I absolutely love but I'm scared to wear them out now at uni because the clubs here are just so messy I don't want to ruin them and get them all sticky 🙁 xx

  • jennie says:

    Oh those shoes are incredible! I wish I had picked up that dress when I saw it, it's so simple but so lovely! Glad you got such a bargain lovely! xo

  • daisychain says:

    That dress looks amazing on you! xo

  • Harriet says:

    I love this dress on you! I too tried on the topshop version and thought it was pretty badly made for the price, so I am definitely going to be heading to my local primark to hunt out this one instead!

  • I haven't been shopping much lately but I recently (a good month ago now) found a pair of Ralph Lauren jeans that were originally marked as $65 and I got them for $9.99, not bad. I love this dress, it looks really comfy and easy to wear, and I have to say I can't get over the color of those shoes – sooooooooo beautiful.


  • Love this outfit, those are some killer heels!! Definitely a bargain 🙂 I love the necklace too as it's so quirky and colourful!

  • RuBee says:

    That t shirt dress is amazing for the price. I could never bring myself to pay the topshop price for it either but I certainly wouldn't mind paying £3 or £8. I wish I could find it in store. It's just such an easy piece to wear and to have in your wardrobe. X

  • Raz says:
