As a girl that loves items of high quality, luxe fabrics and local Australian Designers, it’s not often I find myself using the word ‘bargain’. So imagine my excitement when I found all three at DFO Brisbane for a fraction of the price – $215 to be exact.

So what was it that caught my eye and my credit card details? After scouring the sale racks at Portmans, I came across this stylish black denim midi skirt which offers versatility to my AW wardrobe. But the best part? This little baby only set me back $45! Did I nab a bargain, or did I nab a bargain?

As for the top, it’s a new season Cue so it’s definitely not in the same price range, but with Cue your paying for beautiful quality and a proudly Australian owned label, so it’s definitely an investment. Plus that colour totally lends itself to a sultry plum or warm nude pout, which is the most coveted beauty trend of the AW16 season.

So Brisbane fashionista’s, if you haven’t made the trip out to DFO Brisbane, I definitely recommend you do so. Also, make sure you are keeping an eagle eye on the Instagram of @dfobrisbane, as they will be launching an exciting little competition very soon!

Here’s something unsurprising, shopping is my favourite way to spend a Saturday. Purse at the ready, I’m excited to snap up a bargain and at DFO Brisbane, shopping for style is an affordable means!

Focused upon picking the perfect Mother’s Day gift, I spent the best part of the morning admiring the sparkly things at Oroton, sizing up winter pieces from Sportscraft and lusting over leathery goods at Fossil. Let’s just say, mummy’s about to be spoilt this year.

And the spending didn’t stop there. I picked up the cutest little Metallic Jacquard Dress from Cue to reward myself…and it didn’t even break the bank! Add a little blazer, a splash of silver and simple pair of black stilettos and voila, a chic little look for less!

 Now for the exciting part! DFO Brisbane are gearing up to launch an AHHHMAZING competition to help you spoil mum (and yourself). There’s some serious prizes up for grabs and I would hate for you to miss out! Keep an eye out on the DFO Brisbane Instagram (@dfobrisbane) for details and how to enter! May Lady Luck find you! x
