Five Finger Discount Diva

Pretty Cheap

OK so the title of this post is slightly misleading I didn't actually shoplift this dress but it was so cheap it almost counts as steal.
Rose print loveliness

I brought this fab rose print skater dress in the Primark sale earlier this week for the ridiculous price of £5. Yep a dress that cost me less than a starbucks. 
I love rummaging around the shops at sale time but sometimes the discounts offered are a bit pathetic, not at Primarni which was unsurprisingly a total bargain fest. 
Now the sizing at Primark is not always the glamorous fatties best friend. As far as I know it goes up to a size 22 although finding a 22 on the rails is akin to treading in rocking horse poo but there are always quite a lot of sizes 16-20 available. 
Squeezing myself into primark

The fly in the cheapo Chardonnay is that depending on the style you will not be able to get into a lot of these plus sizes. Primark is almost the opposite of vanity sizing its tiny (probably to keep things cheap) so I find anything in a stretch fabric, cut on the bias, or a loose style is fine but fitted stuff tends to pinch the arms and be very tight around the boobies.
Thanks Christmas lurgy-you have allowed me to exploit the Primark sale

Its only because I've been ill all over Christmas that I think I got into this frock comfortably (oh the irony fat bird actually gets thinner over the season  of gluttony) but for now at least its a good fit.
Love the slightly vintage feel to this frock

I love the cute slightly retro print and fifties inspired style of this dress. As with most skater skirts nowadays its a tad on the short side so I've teamed it with leggings and a pair of ballet flats I also got from Primark for £3.
Ready to work my make up magic
I'm wearing this to do make up at  a fifties inspired hen party with the Pamperbox so keeping to the theme I've put a victory roll and a flower in my hair.
I'm a Plussie Hussy

Pow, pow-a whole lotta style for only five English pounds. I'm a thrifty stylish plussie hussy.

  1. One of my fave dresses is a duck print Primark frock! Had it probably nearly 2 years and it is still going strong!

  2. Well done, good find. I find most of their dresses a bit too short for me, but I have been looking into adding broad lace around the hem of dresses to bring them down an inch or 2 so I may take a sneaky peak again. You are looking gorgeous as ever.

  5. Absolute bargain! I have to admit I do find Primark tight on arms too, but I love their stuff! It's such a dilemma!
