Penneys..... ahhhhhh Penneys!!!!! I'm CRAZY about it!!!!
For those who know "Primark", the British chain store, "Penneys" is their trading name in the Republic of Ireland.
When I arrived in Dublin, it was the revelation. I was already quite a big shopper, but discovering this new shop just made my vice worse.
In some ways, I would compare it to H&M, for it's very affordable and trendy. But the thing is, it's actually cheaper than H&M, and offers much more merchandise.
The whole shop is divided in 4 departments - Ladies, Men's, Kids, and Home, where you can find absolutely everything:
Lingerie, swimwear, nightwear, hosiery, shoes, clothes, bags, purses, make-up, accessories, jewels, beauty products, household linen, interior decoration... the list goes on....
... and all that... for ridiculous prices!
cotton tote bags - 2 euros
vintage-like bags - 9 euros
the huuuuge shoe section
cute wedges - 20 euros
slippers - 2 euros
lovely dresses - floral : 21 euros - orange with bows : 19 euros
scarves - 4 euros
swimsuits - prices range from 4 to 9 euros
sunglasses - prices range from 1.50 to 3 euros
lingerie - bras : 6 euros - tutu thong : 3 euros / basque : 9 euros - thong with suspenders : 3 euros - bra : 6 euros
Home section - Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Elvis Presley canvas : 3 euros
I guess you can now understand why 1/4 of my paye goes to "Penneys"?
My mum still doesn't... but that's another story... :-)
I wish you all a good day!!
