It’s Sunday evening and time for The Weekly Wrap. Confession time … I have been a bad, bad blogger! It’s been three weeks since I last posted The Weekly Wrap! Life has just been soooo hectic that I simply haven’t had the time. This post is a bumper issue given it covers three weeks worth of purchases. In that time, I took a trip to Melbourne with The Enabler where we shopped up a storm, did a little bit of local shopping and grabbed some online bargains. I’ve included a few not so fashion items that I just couldn’t resist featuring given the discounts I scored. My savings for the three weeks total a whopping $1553. Read on for all the details …
*** Melbourne City *** Chadstone *** Online *** Westfield Chatswood *** Westfield Liverpool *** Sydney City
This (Three!) Weeks Purchases …
I have been coveting this one for a while and it’s finally been crossed off the lust list. Woot! I love love love it. I did deliberate for a bit but the Enabler made me do it lol. Mr SFH is made me put it under the tree so I had to wait two weeks to wear this baby! Buy Here. Tiffany & Co. (Chadstone).
Very similar to the one above. Couldn’t resist 🙂 Gap. (Chadstone).
Spurr Summer Cross Body Bag ($21ea RRP$30ea Saving $9ea)
I was looking for a cheapish bright yellow cross body to wear with an electric blue dress. This one is so cute and so cheap I bought the blue as well. Also comes in pink … I was tempted! Free next day shipping to boot. Buy them here. The Iconic (Online).
Dior Moisturiser ($170)
While not exactly the one I have on by Lust List it’s a good substitute and a hellofva lot cheaper. So far I’m liking it. Great texture for my very dry skin. Buy it here. David Jones (Sydney City).
Panache Maddie Animal Print Moulded T-Shirt Bra ($85)
I hate bra shopping with a passion. It’s always such a drama to get a good fit. Very few bra’s come in a 6 (28) band and even fewer with a DD or E cup but these two (including one below) do so I bought them. Beggars can’t be choosers and that should see me done for at least another 6 months hopefully! Sizes 6 – 14 D-H. Buy it here. More Than a Handful (Sydney City).
Dorothy Perkins Floral Bubble Top ($49 RRP$70 Saving $21)
I like the idea of this one on a hot summers day with a pair of white denim cut-offs and some blingy thongs. Buy here. The Iconic (Online)
Zalora Basics Peplum Top ($0 RRP$25 Saving $25)
I used discount code HAPPY2015 to get a saving of $25 off my total order (must be over $125) to basically get this top for free. I’ve been looking for a short sleeved peplum top for a while. I’m hoping this is the one! Buy here. The Iconic (Online)
Dorothy Perkins Shell Top ($35 RRP$70 Saving $35)
I love the pretty blue shade and neck detail. Buy here. The Iconic (Online)
Decjuba Romy Top ($70 RRP$100 Saving $30)
I was drawn to the hemline in this one and also the shape of the arm holes which is something I’m always very conscious of. Buy here. The Iconic (Online)
Forcast Oksana Polka Dot Top ($40)
Who doesn’t love polka dots? Mr SFH that’s who but whatever! As the weather heats up (and I mean really heats up!) I have found myself looking for more outfits where I can wear just one layer to work i.e. have sleeves long enough to cover my arm tattoo without adding a cardi or jacket. This one fits the bill nicely. Buy here. The Iconic (Online)
Flights to Thailand ($1140 RRP$2250 Saving$1110)
I simply cannot resist a cheap flight! This will be our third trip to Thailand in three years but who’s counting? This time The Enabler and her family are coming along. It’s gonna be great!!!. Bring on September! The sale has been extended until midnight tonight with slightly higher prices and different travel dates to what I booked so be quick if you’re keen to get away! Picture below is Ko Phi Phi, our favourite Thai island and about as close to paradise as it gets! Buy here. Jetstar (Online)
American Tourister 65cm Spinner ($179 RRP$299 Saving $125)
I travel to Melbourne frequently for work and walk reasonable distances with my suitcase between hotel and office, mainly becuase I can’t be bothered with cabs most of the time, so the wheels take a battering. On my last trip the wheel finally broke on my regular roller and Mr SFH deemed it beyond repair so a replacement was needed. I love the turquoise colour of this case. It should make spotting it on the baggage carousel easier on the odd time that I check it in. Buy it here. Myer (Westfield Chatswood)
King Size 1000TC Sheets ($79 RRP$179 Saving $100)
At $100 off I wanted to buy more but as it was I struggled to hunt down even this set. Clearly everyone else had the same idea to stock up in the sales. I admit I did leave my run a little late as these went on sale on Boxing day and I didn’t get there until the following Monday. My bad! Buy here. Target (Westfield Chatswood)
Online Shopping Update …
1. Upper Street Shoes Custom Made Shoes from The Weekly Wrap #16. I can’t wait to order my next pair of Upper Street shoes. I just need to wait for another special to come up! In the meantime I will order some fabric swtaches so I am prepared when they do have a sale. Love Love Love these. I wore the yellow ones on Xmas eve and they were super comfy!
2. Saskia Pintuck Swing Dress from the Iconic Dress featured in The Weekly Wrap #16. I wore this on Christmas day because it is perfect for a day of big eating and very flattering. I bought the AUS6 which was the smallest they make but it was too big and I had to get it altered. Thanks Marisa! She does amazing work and I highly recommend her. Picture below is just an iPhone happy snap (clearly not the best of backdrops!) but you get the idea! I accessorised with a ridiculous Santa hat and a very large glass of wine 🙂 Cheers!
3. All the bags featured above from The Iconic. How much do you love their fast free shipping!!! I was disappointed the yellow bag had gold hardware given it looked silver in the online pictures 🙁 The hot pink one featured in The Wednesday Pants #16.
Until Next Time …
