Left: Black bucket tote bag, Primark: Β£12
Right: Black clutch with gold studs, Primark Β£6

Comes with a shoulder strap to! πŸ™‚
If any of you are a massive fan of Zara like myself- (which I’m sure you all are) then you either own these bags or just lusted after them like I did. The black bucket tote is Β£39.99 in Zara and is also available in tan, and the black and gold studded clutch is Β£19.99. Funnily enough I was in Zara on Oxford street yesterday and had a weak moment where I just thought ‘blow it i’ll stick in on my credit card!’.. luckily my sensible head took over, I put both bags back then left the shop guilt and handbag free.
After reading Corrie’s post on her new studded Primark clutch, (which you can see here) I decided to try my local Primark today to see if they had the studded clutch in and much to my surprise they did! I was worried my local Primark wouldn’t stock this clutch as it’s only an average store, I assumed just the bigger stores would stock it as they always have the better pieces. Once I had this beautiful bag in my grasp I also found this black bucket tote bag which I absolutely adore! I have wanted the Zara one for so long but haven’t had any spare cash since I came back from travelling not long ago, I was going to treat myself for my birthday next month but as soon as I saw this bargain bag for Β£12 I thought it had to be fate?!
So these two bags came to a whopping total of Β£18!!! Where as the two Zara bags would have cost me just under Β£60, what an amazing save!
Have you found any Primark bargains recently? They are the shop of hidden gems so make sure you have a good rummage and let me know your great finds! πŸ™‚

In other news I got my nose pierced today and love it so much!! πŸ™‚
(This is actually the reason I went into town anyway and came back with two bags as well! haha oops!)

    These two bags are amazing! <3 I was actually planning to go out and buy the Zara studded clutch on Friday, but almost certainly going to pop into Primark instead now!

      Aren't they just?! What a bargain.. couldn't believe it! πŸ™‚ Yess you so should, spend your Β£14 you will save on something else! πŸ™‚ xx

    You AB-SO-LOUTE gem! I've been dying to get these exact two bags from zara, but couldnt afford to fork out for them [just before the start of the new term @ uni, when I'm supposed to be saving πŸ™ ] but now I can atleast get the clutch on the cheap. Thanks for sharing! The rest of your blog is lush too btw, I enjoyed reading the interviews you did for your uni project. Have fun in Thailand (& schedule us lots of posts lol)! xx
