|My Primark Earmuffs|
So far so good. Unlike a hat, they don't fluff up my hair and I can wear them when I have my hair in a high ponytail or bun. They have been really warm, although I haven't worn them for more than 10 minutes at a time, and I can still hear people talking. I haven't had many compliments (mmmmm?) however I'm not that embarrassed wearing them and fit in well with my 6 year old and her friends, oh dear. At the moment I feel I would continue to wear them (even after what I've just written!) but it's not been long enough to judge just yet.
|Ugg's version, 'the real McCoy' in my opinion!|
It would be wrong to compare the quality as there really is no contest, but this wasn't about quality more about whether I would actually wear them. I am not saying that I will always do this sort of experimental buying, when I know things work for me there is no need to waste time or money seeking cheaper alternatives. However I think this has been really worth while. I have now seen some Ugg one's for £30 in the sale, and while I think that at that price they are great value, my Primark one's still have some life in them yet. So there's always the Summer time to buy them at an even better price. Until then, I would highly recommend the Primark version as an alternative.
