The bargain Primark Dress!

Hey Lovelies,

I know you're probably thinking 'not another outfit post Ellie' and I am sorry I promise I do have some beauty posts coming up soon but as I had 5 days off work last week it meant I got to wear a lot of my 'home' clothes and what with the lovely weather I thought I would show you some of the outfits. I have to say I do find dressing for summer a lot easier than winter, I hate putting a nice dress on and then having to put a bulky coat over the top and layering is just not my area of expertise!

I got this dress last week from Primark and it looks very similar to the Topshop skater dress that I know a lot of bloggers have and I did buy that one as well but returned it as the fit on it was horrible,it hung and the elastic around the waste was rubbish. I also though £25 for a plain grey dress was very expensive! So when I saw this dress for £8 in primark I grabbed it as it is such a basic piece that can be worn in so many ways, and actually preffered the shade of grey on this one as well. When I got to the til it was at the bargain price of £3!! I had to try and remain calm incase it was a mistake haha I always get too excited when something is less than expected at the til. I wore this really simple outfit for dinner on Sunday evening and teamed it with rose gold accessories such as my skull earrings that I love so much and I also wanted my new watch to tie in with the outfit. I am also wearing Mac Sail La Vie which I did a review on here, and I love his shade! I have worn it a lot more than I thought I would and feel at the moment orange looks fresher and classier than my usual bright pinks. A very rare sight in this picture is that my hair is up, I never wear my hair up I'm not cool enough to pull off the pineapple bun but it was so hot I didn't want it around my face!

What do you think of this primark dress? Do you prefer it to the Topshop one?
