So living in Ireland can be a pain at times due to the fact that we lack so many great shops that many other countries get to enjoy...cough... Sephora... cough.
We just recently got a Forever 21 but like many of those great stores, it resides up in Dublin.
Here in Galway we still have no H&M (though rumor is that it's on its way...)
We got a TK Maxx a couple of yrs back, and to be fair it is getting better. We also have River Island, TopShop, Miss Selfridges etc but they do tend to be pricey for the basic bits like vest tops and such.
One shop that we do have however, and it has been here for a long time is Penneys (Also known as Primark in the UK & mainland Europe). When I was younger, Penneys was the most uncool place to shop, and you'd be embarrassed when your Mam came home with something from there, but fast forward 20 yrs or so & it has gradually become one of the "cooler" places to purchase from. This is largely thanks to it opening on Oxford St. in London and the new fashion buyers the company brought in.
My favourite things about Penneys are 1. the price point (extremely affordable ie. cheap) and 2. the variety.
The quality of the clothes has improved immensely also over the past few years....
So here are a few bits that I have picked up over the past couple of months, the lot was for under €100, just to give ye an example of what they have, and my taste in clothing!
(Warning; This shop brings out my girly side!!)
I love the cotton shopper bags they sell!!
I also buy a lot of jewelry from here too but I was too lazy to gather it all up!!
I am in the middle of editing an Outfit of the day video though in which I am wearing all Penneys accessories so ye can see them then, Stay tuned!!
