== Primark Bow Ballet Pumps ==
These shoes, available in black, white and tan, are simple flats with a large bow on the front. The tan shade has a white bow, while the black and white versions have a black bow. I was immediately drawn to the black and white ones as they reminded me of a pair I used to have from Dune and wore to death, except cost about one tenth of the price. I also often wore black and white outfits to work and so thought that these would complement these outfits well. I also really liked the tan ones, as they were simple and low key while also being nice, subtly girly and interesting. I bought both these pairs and thought that, even if they fell apart, at least they'd only cost £6 per pair.
== What I Thought ==
I ended up loving these shoes so much that I soon bought them in black and just yesterday rebought the black and nude ones to take to Germany with me next month. These pumps really are lovely and go well with both casual outfits as well as my work attire. My mam says that it doesn't go, but I do like wearing the nude ones with black tights and black top and skirt for work as it adds another colour to an otherwise plain outfit. The white and black ones also do this as well as complementing pastels and brighter colours nicely and do definitely suit my black and white work outfit. The black ones are probably the most professional and I wear these to work most often but also often put them on with more casual outfits.
The only bad thing about these shoes is, as I did expect, they don't last a ridiculously long time. The front of one of my nude shoes is coming away from the sole slightly, although this isn't massively noticeable, and the white ones have scuffed quite a bit just from being out and about. That said, they're doing a lot better than the other Primark shoes I bought at the same time, which quickly developed a hole in the bottom and were recently thrown out. This is why I rebought a couple of pairs, as I doubted they would last the six months I'm in Germany and I didn't want to be without them. At only £6 each (which I still can't quite believe), they're so cheap that rebuying an extra couple of pairs wasn't a great additional expense at all.
== Conclusion ==
All three colours of these shoes are lovely and go with a variety of outfits. The nude ones are peeling slightly but this really isn't noticeable yet, and for £6 per pair, you really can't expect them to last as long as shoes from other shops. Considering that I've bought a few pairs of Dune shoes in my time for £50+ and these certainly didn't last up to nine times as long, these shoes definitely aren't a false economy. I highly recommend these shoes to anyone (female, I suppose), especially if you're on a budget.
Summary: Brilliant shoes that I was happy to rebuy
