If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen that I’ve shared a few stories stating that I am reluctant to buy clothes right now.
Firstly, shopping has been limited to the essentials, so I can’t try on clothes. Secondly, I have a very low success rate with online shopping so I cannot be bothered with returns. Thirdly, I don’t see the point in buying clothes right now if I’m not sure when I’ll get to wear them. I can definitely make do with what I have.
I was very reluctant to do a Spend or Save post for March or April because shopping isn’t a priority for a lot of people. But…I will say one thing – I’ve been craving creative inspiration, and as I sit cooped up at home, I’ve realised that Spend or Save brings is a creative outlet!
So, I’ve put together a few Spend of Save options. I will say – I’ve had to resort to Instagram to get photos of new stock because Big W haven’t been updating their website lately!
Spend at Sheike and Lover or save at Big W
As you all know by now, I love Big W dresses!
I saw Kristen Eramiha wear this dress on her Instagram page and checked the Big W website for about two weeks before I gave up on them uploading it (okay, I’m still slightly hoping they will).
Anyhow, this Big W dress is the perfect cost-effective alternative to the more expensive paisley print options shown below!
Spend at Myer or save at Big W
I have a confession to make: I’ve tried on this Big W dress. If you follow me on Instagram, you’d know I was so upset that the size 8 was just a little too small, but the 10 was way too big! Alas – it just wasn’t meant to be! But this doesn’t mean you can’t rock it. Dani from the Instagram account @luxeandlemonade rocks the Big W dress so well!
