Cheap as chips-Primark belts

Well, there was nothing doing in H&M, New Look, Miss Selfridge or the charity shops for studded belts-these are what I got from Primark. They are so surprisingly cheap for accessories-the Topshop belt for £25 is leather (although partially) I know, but the corset belt in the top of the picture was only £3 and is a great alternative, I think!! I like the bottom one too, this was only £2 and I can wear it with dresses, jumpers and cardis in winter.

Hi Sharon, Wow! you did great! I love both belts. Do you have any brown belts? Deb

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Deb-thanks a lot. Yes, I've a tan brown studded belt and a cream studded belt, both leather. Really, I would like a black leather studded buckle belt, I shall try and thrift this one day if possible.

Good find!

Siljesfashion said...

Both are very cool, mye favorite is nr 2. Great deals! I paid about 20 pounds for both the belts I got from H&M. Good shopping!!! Picked up another cardigan myself this afternoon, its so versatile when the weather calls for layering. Have a wonderful evening!

Savvy Mode SG said...

both belts are such savvy finds. i found a versace studded belt in my closet. i know if i wait long enough, the trend will be back.... : )

nv said...

Those are great belts, I wish we had a Primark here! That's a great deal too haha you could've gotten around 8 of those belts for the price of a topshop one!

I found your blog from Sal's Alreadypretty.com...
First: THANK you for your lovely compliment. Even though I knew she was writing about me I still found myself blushing about the nice things she said.
Second: I am SO so so jealous of you for getting to shop at Primark. My friend lives in Nottingham so I've gotten the chance to do some UK shopping myself and I <3 Primark. I'm desperate for sweater dresses this fall and I just know they would have what I want. Somehow I think the plane ticket over would negate the bargains though...hmm...

Skye said...

Those are great, and you can keep looking for that black one too!

AsianCajuns said...

Great finds. I love both of them!

Demi said...

I love them belts!! I also went crazy for a black studded belt and I found one in claires accesories for £7, which is quite expensive for a belt, but I wear it all the time! Check it out on my blog (:
I love your blog, and its so amazing some of the things you find in charity shops! I am seriously going to have to start looking!!

budget chic said...

We now have topshop on-line for the US! WOO HOO! I love the shoes on that site. I signed up for email, hoping they will be sending out promo codes soon. I also saw that belt, but without having a real look at it I decided to pass. I can find good leather belts at Value Village Thrift store. I like the bottom one too!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi budget chics-thanks a lot!! Yes, I think Topshop is going to be very popular in the USA!!

ellie said...

Thank you so much for reading and comment.

OH MY..that belt looks like something my boyfriend would even want..

Cool.

Nothing Elegant said...

I like your finds even better than the Topshop version. The bottom one with the gold buckle (clasp?) is amazing. That will look great with dresses.

Couture Carrie said...

fashion herald said...

TUPERSONALSHOPPERVIAJERO said...

I love Primark! It´s fantastic to buy there.
kss

Sharon Rose said...

Hi fashion herald-yes, I think I'm 2 months too late where H&M are concerned, :-(

Sharon Rose said...

hi tupersonalshopperviajero-yes, primark has some excellent deals sometimes-I love the accessories!!

Dana (pron. like Donna) said...

I wouldn't care if something as seasonal as a studded belt were not leather
I only care if it's shoes or bags. Anything else - I save where I can and this is an excellent example of how to save!

Pamcasso said...

wow! love them and so inexpensive!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi pamcasso-thanks so much my dear!!
