My recent purchases - DFO
1. NINE WEST..
picked up these blue jelly thongs for $27.50 to replace...
my orange ones from last year.
2. COUNTRY ROAD
I occasionally find very good clothes at Country Road Outlet for the fraction of the original price (which I refuse to pay). On this shopping trip I found three items I fell in love with
a) White Shift Dress...RRP $199.95, paid $34.50 (faulty - had make-up on it...but a good soak in Napisan should fix it)
b) Oversized Striped Tee...RRP $69.95..paid $24.50 (faulty - tiny white mark on one of the stripes)
I normally wear size S/XS in Coutry Road but this shirt is XL...however I don't mind an oversized fit
c) White Shirt RRP $99.95...paid $49.95 (small mark on the sleeve...one again can be napisaned :)
Nothing beats classic white shirt! I currently have brand new Ralph Lauren one but it is too fitted for my liking (planning to ebay it). This Country Road Shirt is very silimar to this Equipment one that I really want but can't justify spending $200 on
3. LORNA JANE
I picked up this mesh tand top for $28...RRP$59.95...it had a small pull at the front
4. COSMETICS FRAGRANCE DIRECT
I picked up four gorgeous Essie nail polishes for $6 each!
They usually retail for $18.95 at Myer so I was super excited to get these. They didn't have a huge choice of colours but I was still pretty happy with the range they had. I got three summery colours - Van D'Go (peachy pink), Knockout Pout (bright almost fluoro pink), Cascade Cool (cool lilac pink) and one autumn/winter shade Glamour Purse (gorgeous taupe - Chanel Particuliere dupe)
I love shopping at DFO but I prefer to go so when I really need something (e.g after a big cull). It makes shopping more productive and easier plus prevents impulse purchases. I don't mind buying faulty items as long as they are easily fixed (stains on fabric that can be soaked or pulls that can be trimmed off). I don't buy anything with brocken zips/heels/straps as it can be very difficult and expensive to fix.
