Yesterday me and Henry headed down to the Alpha60 sale in Fitzroy. We had heard rumours of amazing bargains and being the cheapo pov students that we are we couldn't pass up an opportunity to buy some of our favourite designer's pieces for less than retail.
I bought an amazing paint splattered silk dress that I tried on with my friend Kia who was down from Sydney a few weeks ago...back then it was on sale for $120 down from $198 but I couldn't justify it at that price. So I was so excited when they had the dress of my dreams at the sale for only $70.
I was taking street photos today, hence the camera around my neck. Be sure to check them out DAILY at Melbourne Street Fashion.com lol I'm like a broken record but really I'm working hard and I want people to see the photos and comment on them.
The details of the outfit:
Dress: Alpha60 sale $70 It is so soft and silky, I love it. It's my first item by an Australian Designer...isn't that crazy? I'm so cheap when it comes to clothes though so its no surprise really, I love a bargain and never ever pay full price for anything!
Belt: Thrifted from Camberwell Market $10
Leggings: Thrifted from Kinji Harajuku $7
Studded sandals: BigW $19
Studded leather scarf: Thrifted from Savers $4
Henry bought the t-shirt for only $20.
And the Sunglasses for only $2...I hate his beard by the way.
He bought the shoes (at my request as I love them) at Payless shoes for $24 about 2 weeks ago. I think they are so cool for that price.
Oh and guess who I saw on the street today.
Lui from Project Runway! Woah now I have met 3 people from the show. Lui was so nice, just like he is on the show, a little shy but uber cool and calm.
Here is Petrova at her shop Lady from her Spring collection party that I went to. She was so nice in person and recognised me from my blog. Yay!
And the 1st person from Project Runway that I met, Oren.
***EDIT*** Just to let you know the Alpha60 sale was located at the Alice Euphemia store on Gertude Street, Fitzroy, and as far as I know its over now. Sorry I didn't let you all know before it ended. Major opps.
