OUTFIT OF THE DAY: AS IF.

Instead of doing work, of course, i'm procrastinating... I have a review in 50 minutes so I probably shouldn't be blogging right now, but i've been working non-stop (even went to uni for the second sunday in a row the other day) so I think I deserve a little rest.

On the way to the Rihanna for River Island launch party last month, we cut through Primark to get there as it was a bit chilly, and even though I was a Primark 'virgin', I spotted this fluffy crop top in the corner of my eye that just called my name. I'd seen a few around and they just reminded me of Cher from one of my favourite movies 'Clueless' - and i'm a sucker for anything 90s, so I went back last week whilst fabric shopping and picked one up. I don't regret it, you have no idea how warm and fluffy this baby is! And even though the high neck line doesn't suit me, it definitely is keeping me warm right now in my freezing cold student house. But the best part about it is that it killed the hatred for Primark I previous had and made me think twice about the 'Primark quality is crap' line that I always used (and it was only £10 wooo!)

  1. I think you suit the high neck! High necks are my favourite especially for winter. I love the colour of your top too! Can't believe you'd never shopped in Primark though :O :O if you search through some of the crappier things there are some absolute gems!

  9. The top looks great.. I have the same hatred for Primark too and I just hate that everyone ends up wearing the same thing but they're so on-trend and cheap that I just can't help myself sometimes!
