Weekend wonder.....

I had a fab weekend, the highlight would have to be finding this Grathelms Couture dress at Savers for $9.00.
Clearly they had no idea what they were selling, these dresses and suits sell for thousands here in Melbourne and are sold through Cannes Boutique in Lt Collins St.


Then there was this little vintage Bonita Thai silk wiggle skirt, it's so shapely it should have a warning sign on it!
And finally I stopped in on The Book Grocer, where they sell all their books for $6. I have no idea how they do it as all the books are new and they have quite good titles.
I devour books, time permitting I read one every week to two weeks so this lot should do me for a while.

Fabulous finds! I love that silk dres, and it goes to show you can still find good stuff at Savers for a reasonable price.

PS. the secret to your lovely photos is your lovely face!

And that dress is 100% silk? Good deal! The colour on the skirt is lovely. I, too, enjoy reading. I've read three books in the past 2 weeks....aside from school books of course :-)

Oh, isn't the Book Grocer great? I just found out about it a few months ago, it's almost hard to believe that everything is just $6!

svenskaussie said...

I adore that lipstick red skirt, I can't wait to see it in 'wardrobe action' and how you style it up. I'm a big fan of the pencil skirt.

Delightful! But I don't think I could wriggle in that tiny skirt ...
