Not sure if anyone remembers my SS11 post, but here's a follow-up with AW11 stuff coming soon. Some of it is actually out now and a lot of it is due to reach stores next month, which I guess is quite weird really! Buying winter clothes whilst in a maxi dress and sandals is going to seem a bit strange, but they do have some really nice stuff coming out and I just hope the quality is as good in real life as it is in photos. I think the only questionable items will be the silky dress and jumpsuit? Other than that I think it's all pretty good and the prices aren't ridiculous either. I also trawled through the cut-out shots and thought I'd show you what took my fancy..



No price or launch information was available with any of these, sorry! Obviously the first two tops stood out to me the most, very Topshop! It all looks quite expensive to me though I think. I've also seen the mustard top with the print (it's actually tiny birds I think?) in store and have been meaning to get it, and I've seen the navy/tan satchel in stores for a few weeks too as well as a cream version.



The brogues actually seem more of a Summer thing to me, maybe it was all put in the wrong folder of pictures? Then again I haven't seen them in store yet. I also really, really like the look of the patterned maxi dress (below), I hope it's not too long for me (like everything always is) because if I took it up it would defeat the purpose of buying it as I like the pattern so much. Fingers crossed!



All in all I am quite excited about the collection, as always. Obviously I'm not expecting it to be the most amazing quality, and I'm kind of hoping it won't be anyway since it will save me some money! Do you find yourself disappointed with stuff you've been waiting to buy or just expect it since 'it's from Primark'? I'd love to hear your thoughts as ever, but all of that aside, I kind of just want to enjoy my summer without thinking about Christmas already!

  2. Oh, wow, wow, wow. Primark has seriously been doing so well with their designs lately, I have to say! Loving the colours and scalloped edges on these pretty clothes. Hopefully they last as long as they look good, haha.

  4. it's crazy to see a/w stuff being released when summer's barely started! i'm quite surprised at the collection - it doesn't look very primarky. love the coloured brogues though. hopefully they'll be reasonably priced

  5. With Primark, I always see stuff either on other people/blogs that looks brilliant, but when I go in there, I can never find anything decent...
    However, those colourful brogues are beautiful, and the green-y/blue-y ones shall be mine! ...As will the burgundy dress!

  8. I was disappointed with our store with the SS11 stuff as there was beautiful dresses in it and our store had like 2 of them. I was waiting forever for a floral print one to come in, they had it in the window and I asked the manager where it was and he said they had none. Why put it in the window then?!

    I used to love Primark but rarely get anything from there anymore, mainly essentials. They seem to have the same printed t shirts and vests in and hideous colour blocking stuff (I hate the trend anyway but Primark make it look even worse!) in mine, it's been dissapointing me for the last year or so.

    The AW11 Lookbook isn't anything great, nothing stands out to be to be perfectly honest, apart from that beautiful burgundy red dress you posted, but I bet it won't look as nice in real life! *cynical*

  9. I like the look of the mustard coloured dress, the only problem I find is Primark dresses are normally ridiculously short for anyone remotely tall (although it's a common problem for most stores!)

    I do love that orange cardi too!

  12. primark is really turning itself around with it's clothes. i love them, especially love the maroon dress near the top, i haven't seen a similar thing in topshop either!

  13. These all look fantastic, Primark have really stepped up lately with alot of their items looking just as good as Topshop's. I love the colourful brogues but I agree, they're more suited to S/S surely? I love A/W fashion though, there's so much more to it but I don't want to think about it for another couple of months yet :-) Great post x

  15. Loving the look of those tassled shoes!xx

  16. Primark's getting a lot better but they seem to be creeping their prices up a little. I know what you mean though, a lot of their stuff looks good in magazine pictures but when you see it in real life it can be quite shoddy

  18. I love the first two tops too - they look great in this context. Not so much in the shops, our nearest primark is so messy :( I always try tidy up for them everytime i'm in there! x

  19. THOSE SHOES! Oh gosh, to die for.
    We need a Primark in Canada.

  20. Personally I am put off because so much of this has been seen already in Topshop and Miss Selfridge. Primark are a little late on the uptake and I will never be a fan of their awful quality; there's paying a good price and then there's cheap and falling apart. I'd rather pay slightly more for something which will last and not smell like salmon! Seriously, my local store smells like salmon, everyone hates it!

  21. Amazing plum-sheer dress, I'd deffo want to check it out! :)

    Primark is such a good store for buying all of these fast trends: e.g. sheer tops or statement jackets for a low price. I would never to be able to afford all of these from Topshop.

    Just like you, I hope the quality will match my expectations... X


    P.S. Don’t forget about my new giveaway!

  22. This is really good stuff for Primark, I'm just hoping the price doesn't jump up too high too.
    I love the first two tops, they're look fairly Summery anyway so they'll transition into Autumn very well xoxo

  28. Totes agree about the maxi dress, love the print but I fear it will be too long too :/ the brogues & the floppy hat look the bomb, can't wait to see them IRL, hopefully they won't be too harsh on my purse! ^_^

  30. Ouch, I´m head over heels in love with those colourful brogues. The turqouise and the pink pair being my absolute favourites. Shame I probs won´t get to Primark until like...erm...Christmas:(

  31. I LOVE the white top on your cut out pics, so lovely. I'm lucky to live near a GIGANTIC Primark that's been renovated and I only live in a town, not a city, so shopping there on a weekday morning is fabulous, there's hardly a soul in there and it's a tidy Primark haha!

    Thing is size 10-12 items sell out SO quickly, you have to get in there first!

    I don't agree with the "quality" statements. I bought two almost identical pairs of chino trousers, one Primark pair that cost £9, and one Miss Selfridge pair that cost me £36. Same materials. I've worn the Primark ones more often and they're fine, yet my Miss Selfridge pair are bobbly on the inside legs. So I go to Primark before I go anywhere else as, quite frankly, I feel ripped of by shops like Miss Selfridge/Topshop as much as I like what they sell.

    You just have to be a savvy shopper, justify what you're spending on and know a good seam/material when you see one ;-)

  32. I love this collection so much! Definitely going to be spending a lot of money in Primark in the coming months! I already have the 3rd top in the first row of cut-out tops you posted. The bird print is so cute and it was only £8! Really want the first one too, and the first dress in the second row.

    I actually think most things in Primark are quite good quality despite what a lot of other people say about their stuff. It's often the same materials as other more expensive shops anyway. xx

  33. wow love it, primark have upped their game! Also super excited about another new highstreet collab... check out my blog to see! x
