Bargain Hunter: Sydney Fashion Weekend
As enjoyable as the fashion shows were the heart of fashion weekend is shopping, in particular shopping for bargains. Every styled girl there (and the few boys) were looking to spend their moneys on some great finds that they can brag about. With hundreds of designers and labels selling their stock for up to 70% the event definitely drew a crowd. I only walked away with two items but if you are normally happy to buy these designers at full retail then fashion weekend would have been heaven for you, but for a poor uni student like me it was the jewelery stalls and labels like MinkPink that held the bargains.
This Stylust ring I picked up for $10, RRP $22.99. More than 50% off! My friend also picked up a ring from the same label for the same price, the picture doesn't really capture it but the silver oval is actually a tiny snake.
And I was determined to get an actual piece of clothing so knew I could trust the MinkPink stall to provide me with a bargain and I was right, picked up this cute dress that had been marked down to $30 but because it was the final hours of the sale got it for $25.
