toy soldier




dress: primark

This is what I wore a few days ago to go for Nandos and sit in the sun with two of my favourites, Paul and Mark. It was Paul's first time eating at Nandos (I know! I couldn't believe it either!) and he jumped in at the deep end by getting his chicken spiced with the hot sauce (and then adding some of the extra hot sauce to it!), Mark and I were total wimps more sensible and opted for the medium spice which was more than hot enough for us!

I bought this dress about a month ago but completely forgot to post it. I wear it constantly, but the only thing that annoys me is that it's indecently short so I'm constantly having to pull it down. Definitely not one for wearing without thick tights!

  1. I love this! Primark always have such unique pieces and lovely prints, I wish they were a little better made though!!

  2. I really love that dress! I haven't seen it in my local, it's only a small one though.
    I was a Nandos virgin until recently too! I also went for Hot and then put the Extra Extra hot sauce on my chips.. it was still too mild for me haha. The cheesecake was lush though!

  4. Rai - They do have some lovely pieces. I don't think the qualities too bad on most things, but I hope they don't put their prices up even more.. x

    Hayley - My local doesn't have it either but there's another store about 20 minutes away that stocks all the good things! ♥ It was still too mild? Oh god!! Medium is about as hot as I can eat, you must be crazy!! :) Have never had a dessert from Nandos - I'm always too full up! xx

    Rachel - The store I got mine in still had some left, if you want me to check for you let me know :) x

  5. Ohhh, I really really love it! I've wanted this for ages but my Primark NEVER has it in, argh!

    I bloody love Nandos! I get NHS 20% off too, even though I don't actually work in a hospital anymore, but I don't feel guilty cause I'm doing an NHS uni course, tehehe! Argh, I want nandos now. Have you tried the red pepper dip? Best. Thing. EVER!

  7. love the print on this dress, it's beyond amazing. Love the shape of it, but so sick of everything being ridiculously short right at the moment. if they could just add a couple/3 inches to the hem line.

  12. Sarah - 20% off nandos?! sounds like heaven! i've not tried the red pepper dip, but i definitely will next time! :D x

    Klee - Nandos have the BEST vegetarian stuff though!! I"m veggie too. I always order a wrap with halloumi (HEAVEN) and portobello mushrooms. It's soooo good! x

  13. <3 cute dress.
    Gonna fall out with Primark though if they don't stop raising their prices! Yes, I do realise that they're still cheaper than anywhere else lol...
    Much Love

  28. Roisin - Yeah, I feel the same about their prices! If they increase any more then they're going to have to improve the quality to justify it. x

    Raffles Bizarre - Thank you! The print is so cute isn't it :) x

    Ellie - I've been going every week or so lately, forming a bit of an addiction I think! x

    Abbie - I know, I love it! ♥ x

    Mandi - It's the Braehead shop I always go to, it always has the nicest things :) x

    L - You should go! Treat yourself this weekend ;) x

    Jazzy E - Thanks :) x

    Stundon - I think I was lucky to find it! It was buried at the back of a rail too :o x

    Angela - Ooh I have the horse print one too, that's much shorter than this one swell. Grrr! x

    Vicky - Aww, keep checking! Sometimes smaller Primark stores can take longer to get the new stock x

    Sian - Thank you :) My hair is driving my crazy just now! x

    Cherry - Aww no, I'll keep my fingers crossed that you find it! :) x

    Elise - Yeah, it's lovely :) x

    Lady Cherry - Jealous that you can make dresses! That would solve so many problems with things going out of stock before you get them! x

    Michelle - My local Primark didn't get it in either, I had to travel for a bit to find it! Exactly what I do! I can't stand things that are too hot! x

    Sarah - Thanks lovely :) x

    Mark - Compared to Paul I think we are a bit wimpy! x
