Can't help it. While I was in Melbourne, I went shopping in Footscray. I stopped by Forges ("The Western Suburbs Own Department Store!"). It's closing down, and there wasn't anything worth having. Sigh.
However, all was not lost. Savers had a 50% off sale. I love this place. Second-hand awesomeness in a department store format. It was hectic with the sale on, but I picked up a few little numbers... like this lovely Benetton dress.
... a comfortable housedress.
... black dress with pleats - worn with pleasure to Chris's grandmother's 80th this weekend.
... purple woolen skirt and a t-shirty thing with shoulder-pad goodness.
... and a bright red trenchcoat, and some voluminous pleated pants. Managed to squeeze in a delicious doner kebab too. Very worthwhile day out!
