Online Shopping for Super Deals

Yay it’s Friday!

If you’re a mum like me, this will mean very little especially if your kids have already been on holidays for a week like mine have!

But since it is Friday and there’s not many sleeps left until Santa arrives I thought I would share a post on what I’ve been up to lately.

Starting with a recent collaboration I was lucky enough to do with *eBay Australia, basically my job was to find the perfect Christmas Day outfit under $100 from eBay stores….. too easy!

I was really surprised to find that there is a wide range of well known stores selling stock at heavily discounted prices, to me eBay was for buying pre-loved goodies or cheap stuff from the China based stores!

This is the complete list of stores currently selling…

I’m a huge fan of the wrap dress as you might know if you saw my last post!  and was very lucky to snap this one up.

And of course you can’t have a fab outfit without equally fabulous shoes!

Wittner – Orange Leather Sandals $59.95 (were $149.95 originally)

And there you have it! A great outfit, under $100 that can be worn for many events well beyond the silly season!

And because I like to make life easier for you guys, here’s three more dresses from City Beach that I thought were great buys!

What do you think…. have I convinced you take a look at eBay!

Just in case you need another great reason, did you know that some stores offer Click and Collect at Woolworths!

Keep an eye out for my next collaboration with Gumtree Australia, again you won’t believe what bargains I found!

Until next time,

A Very Thrifty Christmas with Ocean Keys Shopping Centre

dscn8237

 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…… Christmas!

What better way to celebrate than by choosing a new outfit.

I’m so thrilled to have partnered with Ocean Keys Shopping Centre to bring you

‘A Very Thrifty Christmas’

One of the things I love the most about being a stylist / fashion blogger is sourcing outfits that are not just on trend and practical but also affordable.

Wanting an outfit that makes you look and feel fabulous is something a lot of women can relate to. When you factor in the cost per wear of an outfit we all want to stretch those dollars further, especially at this time of year!

That’s where Ocean Keys Shopping Centre offers affordable Christmas fashion for every event. In today’s post I’ve put together three outfits with items purchased at Ocean Keys Shopping Centre and all for less than $150.

When looking for items for your wardrobe this is my best advice –

  • Can I wear it for more than one season or occasion
  • Do I have pieces in my wardrobe that can easily be mixed with it
  • Does it fit me exactly how I want it to
  • Do I feel fabulous wearing it! (the most important tip)

If you answered yes to any of these questions then you’re on your way to finding the perfect outfit for you.

For this post I’ve chosen a wrap dress as the one item that can be styled three ways. I went with a classic navy wrap dress as I like the versatility it offers when adding other items to my look. I also like that a wrap dress is a style that can suit many body shapes and be very flattering. You could of course choose a patterned wrap dress (or any style of dress) and apply the same styling tips…

For example – Heels and statement jewellery look great for a night out whereas the addition of a denim jacket with sandals and a hat will take you to a casual lunch effortlessly.

The wrap dress I’m wearing is a little on the short side (keep in mind I have long legs and a short torso so everything tends to look ‘leggy’ on me!). If you’re not comfortable showing so much leg I would suggest a light denim jean underneath or a ¾ length legging.

Let’s take a look!
