camilla & marc Bargains

I went along to the camilla and marc relocation sale on Friday.
I got there about 15 mins before the opening, and there was already a little bit of a queue. I was lucky though because by the time the sale opened the size of the line had at least tripled!

I wasn't in the first batch of people to be let in, so had a to wait another 15-20 mins peeking through the window anxiously and spotting out what i wanted to buy!

It was a REALLY good sale, with a lot of great pieces at pretty reasonable prices when you consider what they cost to buy retail.

I got 3 gorgeous dresses, which i will post photos of soon.
One was the Charlotte frock in black, which is an absolutely stunning dress that i will get loads of wear out of. It was still quite expensive at $350, but the retail price of this dress is about $550, so a hefty discount.

Me in my Charlotte frock - $350 instead of $550+

The other 2 dresses i got are in the pretty neon print, one called "polly jean" and the other is the "Penny Frock" and is pictured below.
Overall i did really well, I think i am going to wear the penny to a friend's wedding that is coming up in January, it's just so bright and colourful without being heaps over the top, and the black charlotte dress will definitely become one of my wardrobe staples, i think it is really versatile and could be dressed down as well as up and worn on a variety of occassions.

Penny Frock - $110 instead of $350+

There was a heap of other nice stuff - if only i had an unlimited budget! They had the gorgeous 'taya' frock and many other beautiful silk maxi dresses. I would have loved to have bought one of these too, but they were also $350 and i'd given myself a $500 limit!

Did anyone else go to the sale? If so tell me what bargains you picked up for yourself!!

I think that will do me for sales for the time being, i am supposed to be saving for overseas next year! Having said that i can't wait to go to the Zimmermann sale, normally in January i think... will have to start putting some money aside now!
