As you know, hunting through Primark during my time off is my idea of the perfect stress-buster. When I found I had a long list of errands to run in town, (Kingston) I stopped off at Primark.
From there I was blown away (yet again) by all the on-trend pieces which were being stocked on the shelves and four-way rails. I could have got completely carried away and bought the whole store, but I ended up just picking up four items (which for me, is refrained).
One of those items were a pair of patent studded heels which I have been hunting for, ever since I spotted them in another store. It was a no-brainer; I managed to find a pair in my size, so I picked them up and ran to the till in a fit of footwear hysteria.
These heels will carry me graciously through my Valentino Garavani Rockstud phase. Whilst I cannot quite afford the real deal (not yet anyway), these Primark wonders are doing the job just fine.
I have actually had people ask if they are Valentino and although I would love to say, ‘Why yes they are’, how could I deny Primark of the applause they should outrightly be getting. Hell I love them so much I have shouted in the middle of a bar in Mayfair that my shoes are not the work of an Italian fashion mogul, but of an Irish clothing retailer who make fashion affordable.
So get your butt’s down to Primark this instant and pick up a pair. They are extremely comfortable as heels go and the thought of them being only £14 made for an even greater comfort to my poor bank account.
