and one makes 5


'Your best bargain' is today's topic, which is a hard one for me. I have never brought something extremely expensive for an extremely cheap price. I've never been so lucky as to find something that good before nor am I extremely internet bargain hunting savvy. So I will blog about a bargain which made me happy.

I started searching online for a party dress for a girls night out earlier this year. It was my friends birthday and we were heading into town for some tapas and cocktails. I found this dress at Forever New and was so excited to try it on. I had always wanted a bandage dress since I saw an amazing Herve Leger bandage dress on the Harrods website. But due to my financial circumstances, I had no chance of affording anything by Herve Leger.

So I headed off to the shops that Thursday night. Unfortunately they only had the size down but I thought that I would try it on anyway. As I was walking around the shops I saw this dress on the specials rack. Not only was it cheaper, but it was in my size.

Not only was it cheaper, the right size but I have a thing for dresses with sleeves. It fitted amazingly! I was so happy with it. I can't remember what I paid for it though. I am never good with that, but everything on sale was on sale. I think it was in the region of $70. But I wouldn't quote me on that.

The only photo's I have of me in this dress is one of my head where you only just see the mesh and in the other I am wearing a big red coat. But trust me, it is a gorgeous dress on. I have a girls cocktail night coming up and I am thinking of wearing this dress again.

In other news, today is fathers day in Australia, and possibly else where in the world. So this morning I set off to my home town to see my dad and the family. I arrived early so I went for a drive to my favourite place and took a few quick happy snaps. It was rainy and the surf was choppy but it's a lot better when a storm is coming in. The worse the weather the better the display of white water smashing onto the rocks.

My happy place

I then headed to one of my old favourite cafe's for a pot of tea and a florentine biscuit. I took a wander along the main streets then headed to my dad's for lunch.

All in all a great day. Anyone else have an old happy place?

Love, love Elle.
