Net-A-Bargain!

Net-A-Porter are having a serious sale, and you won’t wanna miss it.

Traditionally, I’ve always been turned off by the exxy nature of Net-A-Porter. The prices were always in pounds, which then converted to an astronomical Aussie dollar which mad me very sad by the end of my browsing experience.

However, I did a ‘haul’ online yesterday and raided their amazing sale!

I wanted to buy so so soooo much more, but reigned it in to include the essentials. (HA!)

Here are my top picks from the 80% off range – you can pick up some ridiculous bargains!

My fave part? All items I’ve chosen below are under $200. You can’t afford not to!

Pine Lime Love!

Oh no. It was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Or – the piece that broke my 12-day-strong abstinence from shopping!

I felt BORED! i wanted some FUN! So I popped along to Incu in my lunch break. The S A L E emblazoned on the window caused me to raise an eyebrow. Could this be enough to make me want to unzip my wallet?

It was! I found this simply diviiiiiiine ANTIPODIUM sweater on sale for HALF PRICE! I was a bit dubious of the armpit holes at first, (see below) but I love a good fash-challenge, so decided to try it on.

Lion attack on the armpits? Or Fash-forward funky?

The colour is so fresh, and the holes, well, they are tres cool! Apparently, the collection was inspired by the flick Riding in Cars With Boys… so 50’s and all about the sweater.

I’m so in love, theres even a hint of a fluro pink weave in the material. A great purchase, don’tcha think?

We’re all going on a summer holiday…

The sun is shining, the air is balmy and the last place you feel like being is at work!

Never fear, the Christmas holidays are just around the corner – and if you don’t have to work, chances are you have travel plans for the break.

Whether it’s two nights down the coast or an adventure to another hemisphere (ME ME ME!), you’ll be stuffing all of your worldy possessions into a bag. To get you thinking about your holiday wardrobe and perhaps provide some distraction from your day job check out my top 3 summer holiday essentials that are travel friendly and fashion forward.

1. The T-Shirt Dress

This bad boy will rollup in your suitcase like a dream, and is perfect to chuck on over a bikini this summer. Try to aim for one that is crinkle-proof…that way you won’t need to get the iron out. I love this dress from online store Showpo… I bought it in grey and have travelled in it before. Rock it with a hot pink lip and you’ll be the envy of all the beach babes – even if you aren’t one.

Riptide dress in White @ Showpo.com, $55

2. The Super-Cool Shades

You’ll be wearing these all day to visit shops, beaches and restaurants, so you will want a pair of funky sunnies to top off your look. I lusted after a Celine pair for ages – only to discover they were too big for my face. DAMN! Yes, great news that my head is small, bad news that i’ll have to go back to the drawing board to find another pair I love as much as my Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses that are tired, word and ready to retire. These KW frames are awesome…but they will probably fit your face and not mine! (sob)

3. The Summery Sandals

The perfect summer shoe hinges largely (for me, anyway) it’s wear-ability with my entire summer wardrobe. I just don’t think you can go past a tan, orange or turquoise shoe when planning what to pack for your beach getaway. A good-quality leather, flat sandal can take you from day to night, and will save some valuable space in your suitcase – no need for other shoes! I love these Indie sandals, so comfy and still, so stylish!

Are you ready for this jelly?

As summer approaches, the need for fun footwear is at the top of every gals list. I have long been a pioneer of the jelly shoe, and am delighted to see them come back onto the fash scene with such a vengeance this summer.

Specifically, i’ve loved the Vivienne Westwood by Melissa range. It’s been around for ages, and I have to say each new collection never disappoints. I have a pair of jelly heels and countless pairs of jelly flats… they are so comfy and smell amazing! When I ask people to smell my shoe it’s often met with disgusted and puzzled looks but those who do take me up on my seemingly strange offer are just so excited when they get a whiff of the bubblegum-scented plastic Melissa uses!

It’s ingenious!

But, steering away from my love of The Viv by Mel range, I’ve had a scout round for the best jelly shoes of the season. From luxe to less, these shoes will make you smile, and prepare your tootsies for the warmer weather ahead.

THE CLASSIC JELLY

You had these as a kid…so why not bring them back and rock them at the beach this weekend?

Heart & Soul

Burberry has always been known for it’s iconic check print.

Usually it’s met with divided responses – some think it’s an upmarket, beautifully Brit brand, others stand firm on it’s place in Chav society.

Whether you like it or not, open your mind and check out  the new heart print they’ve bought out this year….I for one, LOVE it.

I’m calling it now, and suggesting Heart Print is going to be a big trend in the months to come. When researching, I saw a lot of UK and international sites are stocking apparel with the print, but it hasn’t quite come over the seas just yet for us Aussie shoppers.
Never fear though, if you want to wear the print you can shop online for these items to get the look – without spending the big bucks on the Burbs.

David Jones EXTRA 25% off fashion!

I know what I will be doing in my lunch break.

I’ve recently moved offices and I am a WHOLE lot closer to the Sydney shopping Mecca that is Pitt St Mall & Sydney Westfield.

(Cue squeals of excited glee!)

It’s so easy, quick, dangerous… I can see the silver parts on my credit card eroding with constant use!

Imagine my delight, when I received this EDM yesterday:

djs

There are a few things I’ve been noticing when browsing in store, and was waiting for an opportunity like this for a real bargain to be had.
It can be a risky venture, your prized item can sell out, or on the flip side, you could score it for an even bigger bargs if you pay the waiting game. Comparing the online sale to the in store stock is always tricky too, and usually not as good as the tactile sale experience in most department stores, but DJ’s have really stepped it up! There’s so much to view online, so don’t fret if you can’t make it in store before Sunday. (Free online shipping over $50 to Aussie residents!!)

Here is my guide to the sale, the best in show in each apparel and accessory category – and conveniently you can shop this as an entire outfit! 🙂

Happy shopping! And do let me know if you’ve had a sales success! xx

 NOTE: ALL PRICES HERE ARE EXCLUSIVE OF THE EXTRA -25% DISCOUNT. SO MORE SAVINGS TO BE HAD AT THE CHECKOUT! 🙂
