As you may have seen by my last Primark post, I had a lot of luck this month. However I also had some bad luck when it came to shopping in Primark. Some of these items I’m not sure about whether or not I’m returning them (all of them were both recently so I can still return them at a later point.) HU
The first disappointing item which I picked up last month was this dark red shirt. Now it only cost €9 and I absolutely fell in love with it in store. I’m a big fan of shirts in general as I think they look lovely both casually with a pair of jeans or formally with a fancy skirt. This shirt also gave me Amy Santiago vibes from Brooklyn Nine Nine! However when I looked at this shirt again when I got home, I noticed that the shirt fits weirdly at the chest area. The material stretches in a way that look odd. I need to retry it on to see if it fits better.
I am a big fan of the design of this blouse. It’s very pretty and very different compared to the other items that I bought in Primark. It also fits amazing and reminds me of the yellow blouse that young Donna in Mamma Mia 2 wears (it seems all shops in Dublin have Donna inspired clothes right now and I am living for all the stripes.). Everything is perfect about this top. Everything that is except the sleeves. The sleeves may look unique and nice, however they are the most uncomfortable sleeves ever to exist. They’re made of scratchy material which irritated me straight away when I put this blouse on for the first time. This blouse was also €13 and I will definitely be returning it as I cannot wear it with those sleeves.
(Also for some reason the pictures look like they’re two different coloured blouses despite being taken at the same time with the same lighting. The picture of the sleeves is the more accurate colouring of this blouse.)
This top I will be keeping as the problem I have with it I’m able to ignore. I bought this top to wear with the dungaree dress which I showed in my last Primark post (which you can read here.). And while it looks really good under the dungaree, I could never wear this top without it. Why? Oh, because it is completely see through along the front of the top. Yeah, I do not want to wear a see through top. However it is perfect for my needs, as the dungaree dress completely hides the parts of this top that is see-through. It was only €6 so I’m not annoyed by this problem.
Did anyone buy some products from Primark that they didn’t like? Let me know in the comments!!
