Primark - affordable shoes!

I don't know about you, but I find that the most affordable purchases are always the most satisfying. Anyone agree with me on that one? My reasoning behind this is, that if you know you have purchased something over-priced, your expectations are a lot higher than if you paid pennies and expecting it to be "okay" and it pleasantly surprises you with how good it is! Okay, enough with all the psychology behind this...

So I went shopping the other day and decided to go into Primark for the first time in about half a year. The one in Stratford Westfield shopping centre has become my favourite one. NEVER go to the one on Regent Street in London unless you want to come out empty handed and more stressed than when you went in.

I was looking for some ballet pumps and had been searching around in places like Dune, Oasis, Topshop, Kurt Geiger... and found them to be so expensive! I just wanted a pair of pumps to wear everyday to and from work and just out and about at the weekends when I'm dressing casual.

And then I found THESE........ How cute are these?! (Yes, I know I was adventurous to buy the same style shoe in different colours!)

They were only £6 a pair and they are definitely a lot more comfortable than some pricey ballet pumps that I've tried. The quality is great given how much they cost and will probably last me a good amount of time. They will go with almost every outfit in Spring and I'm so glad I purchased them. So let this be a lesson to you all, the best buys aren't always the most expensive and highly regarded products. I have to admit, things in Primark can be a bit of a hit and miss but if you look hard enough, they are some pretty good finds in there!
