Frugal Spotlight: Primark

If you live or have been to Europe, you most likely know what Primark is. Primark sells fashionable and trendy clothes at the low costs. They offer a wide range of products, from newborn and kids clothing, to womenswear, menswear, home ware, accessories, footwear, beauty products and more. 
 
Living in Europe where everything is kinda expensive, Primark is like heaven. The items are inexpensive and the quality is great for the price. Currently the retailer only has stores in Europe, but luckily for our American readers Primark will be coming to the states by the end of the year.

What's The TREND? Portrait Print Tees

As of right now you can find just about any icon from the fashion, music and entertainment world on the front of a t-shirt or sweatshirt and I think that's great! You can support your favorite people by just getting dressed and walking out your front door. I come across a few of my favs recently but have yet to purchase because I'm trying to cut back on shopping (laugh out loud). I've seen a few tees with Frida Kahlo, Tupac and other moguls on them in stores like Forever 21 and H&M. 

Fashion Bomb Daily Editor-in-Chief Claire Sulmers joined forces with illustrator and owner of Cotton Candy Playground Nicole Updegraff to create a series of t-shirts uplifting black icons in music, entertainment, and fashion. Purchase your Portrait Print Tee here! Below are a few looks I styled.
