Unexpected treasures!

Floral embroidered dress

I saw this dress quite a while ago on Olivia, and fell in love with it! I don't really own an all black dress, and have been wanting one for ages, so when I saw this in Primark, and in the sale, I bought it without any hesitation! I love how it just goes with everything because of it's colour, but it's not too work-y because of the lovely floral print around the collars, sleeves and skirt. Plus, it's a really thick material so I can wear it in the winter, and it looks really well made. Has anyone else noticed how good Primark has been lately for clothes? I haven't managed to visit one in such a long time, seeing as my nearest one at University is nearly two hours away, but i've seen so many skirts and blouses on bloggers that you wouldn't believe were Primark. 
How have your weekend's been so far? I'm trying to do some work right now, but keep getting distracted with Urban Outfitters and Asos now that my loan has come through! 
Thank you for all of your lovely comments on my last post, it was so simple to make, and it would be such a good gift idea. I've been thinking about making quite a few of them with vintage china and scented, coloured, candles and selling them, do you think this would be a good idea? I'll let you know if anyone does happen!
Love, Charlestown xoxo.
