Massive Autumn 2012 Primark Haul!!

Hello!
Having come into small riches from my day of babysitting, I then spent it all..in Primark. I know this may seem extreme - did I buy EVERYTHING in the store?! No.. Primark is getting pricey! (eek) This was a much needed haul before heading off to uni in a few weeks! Last weekend one of my ballet pumps literally broke in half (and my others are not much better) hence I have a lot of flats in this haul! I feel positive about everything I've spent, so that's an optimisitc start!
Purchase 1 - Black ballet pumps with diamante decorated bows.
Cost: £10
Love or hate: Love! Very comfy, look pretty, a fake velvet feel, and I needed some black pumps!
Purchase 2 - White pumps with gold studs 
Cost: £8
Love or hate: Love! My toes are slightly squished on one foot... but they are generally really nice. I love the stud detail! They are quite a thin material though, so you can see the crease from the bend in my foot
Purchase 3 - Tan ballet pumps
Cost: £4
Love or hate: Not too fussed by this purchase - I was wanting some tan shoes and these were cheap! I previously had these in red though and they wore pretty quickly. Especially annoying was the threads from the bows that unravelled.
Purchase 4 and 5 - Leggings!
Cost: £6 for 2
Love or hate: Primark leggings aren't the best, and the leg length is a little off, but £3 for a pair of leggings to a girl who lives in them is an ideal purchase :)
Purchase 6 - Navy above-knee length polyester dress with bow detail and duck pattern
Cost: £10
Love or hate: LOVE! This dress hangs really lovely and I think it's just so great for a tenner! It is a thin material too, so good for summer/autumn
Purchase 7 - Black multi-strap tote bag with zip
Cost: £12
Love or hate: This is probably my best purchase in this haul! I love it lots! This bag is a perfect shoulder bag for uni! The inside is super roomy, and has a cotton innard - not horrible pvc plastic. It fits A4 standing up, or sideways. There are gold studs on the four corners on the bottom so the bottom of the bag won't touch the ground. There is a proper zip fastening at the top so your goods won't fall out! It is a structured hard plether material. There is a pocket inside, big enough for a normal sized purse - at perfect height for getting things out whilst the bag is still on your shoulder (not the awkward just out of reach struggle) Also, the long strap feels very secure, and I love the metal chains. BUY IT!

  2. Ahhhh, those studded pumps are gorgeous, they look like the Topshop Vectras! Amazing, a penny-pinching alternative :) I know what you mean though, Primark prices are not what they used to be! Still a bargain compared to other shops though.
    I love your bag too, it looks really good quality and I wouldn't have guessed it was Primarni.
    So envious of you, off to uni - I miss my uni days so much :(
    What are you going to be studying?
