Topshop products without the price tag: Primark dupes

Hello Lovelies!

As a budget beauty blogger I'm always trying to hunt down affordable drugstore dupes for high end make up brands, however it occurred to me recently I should start doing this with clothes too. So yesterday before I spent my pounds in Topshop, I hunted down almost exact dupes of the staple items I wanted in Primark for only pennies!

The Topshop staples...

And the Primark dupes...

1. The Crop Top
Topshop £10 / Primark £3

2. The Neppy Tee
Topshop £12 / Primark £4

3. The Ankle Socks
Topshop £3.50 / Primark £1.50

4. The Boyfriend Tee
Topshop £12 / Primark £3.50

I was literally so happy to find all of these things as I'd been eyeing them up in Topshop for so long but got pretty much all the Primark things for the price of one Topshop item! They may not be of the exact same quality but for a strapped for cash student who likes to wear things that are likely to be out of fashion by next week these good dupes are perfect and I'll be able to create so many different outfits with them, so what are you waiting for... get down to Primarni!

Have you found any dupes in Primark lately?

Today has been another uni work filled 12 hours, but I'm off for dinner with my housemates tonight and tomorrow I'm hosting a Eurovision party (literally love a good European musical cheese fest) so at least I have some exciting things to get me through this final third year push! I hope you all have a lovely start to your weekend :)

Love Meg

  7. wow, such a great post! I love Primark so much, I'd rather spend like half the price on something as Topshop is ridiculous!! xxx

  8. Definietly picking up some of those frilly socks, although £3.50 from topshop is pretty darn reasonable! (tbf, my feet are tiny & I've been known to buy kids size 10-2 socks before ;))
