Primark pick of the week: New season dresses

Hi guys,
I know it still feels a bit cold, but think about spring we must! And I could be slightly biased because I can't actually buy any of them (and not being allowed something makes us want it all the more) but I love every single summery floaty dress in the primark window this week:
The themes are generic summer ones: floral and nautical. But I like the vintage feel to some of the nautical pieces and the flattering puff sleeves on the floral dresses. I also like the price point: I always double check the hems and restitch the buttons on anything I buy from primark but I do think the quality of their stock is improving dramatically. And although that means you have to pay £15 for a dress instead of £10, something similar from topshop would still set you back £60. This, of course, is merely an observation, and not me trying to talk myself into shopping at all!
The transitional coats instore at the minute are very eyecatching: i'm especially fond of the white sailor coat with contrasting navy buttons and trim (second picture) And for those of you still looking to wrap up warm against the current chill, a lot of the jumpers and cardigans instore have been reduced - see? There's something for everyone!
Love, Tor xx
PS - I know I usually take close up pictures instore but a burly security guard asked me not to and proceeded to stalk me with his eyes all the way around the shop. So these window pics were the best I could do. Hopefully i'll have better luck next time!
