Australian clothing haul- K-Mart, Forever New, Uniqlo

Friday, May 20, 2016

Hey guys, I'm back with another shopping haul! This time I will only show you the items I got from some of the various Australian websites or stores. As per usual, I will link everything that I got below.

Firstly, let's talk about K-Mart... I've never been so excited to go to K-Mart to shop for fashion! I usually only go there for kitchen appliances and cheap tables and what not but I did recently watch quite a lot of Brittney Lee Saunders' K-mart haul videos and it had me intrigued.

I went to K-Mart last weekend and got myself some cute stuff.
My first pick was this Everlast crop top for $12 which I got it in a size 10.
The top is a bit loose on me around the chest and doesn't provide much support but it's very comfortable nonetheless, I can see myself in this piece lounging around the home a lot.





I also picked up a grey crop top with a racer back and cute detailing for just $10. It's very comfy and soft but I don't feel like this top provides enough support. Actually, I wear it a lot around the house already! I don't go to the gym but I love wearing these types of bras in general because how comfortable they are!



I also acquired a Calvin Klein bra singlet, which I love but seem to not be able to find them in-store anymore so I was just so glad when I saw it at K-Mart.



They sell these tops in a packs of two for $12 each. I got one in black and the other in white. It looks and feels exactly like the CK top, but these ones come with adjustable strap!




The last bra I bought from K-Mart was a white, padded singlet with a racer back. This bra provides quality padding without sacrificing the comfort of wearing a singlet! It's heaven-sent!




The second shop I continued my haul adventure in just happened to be one of my favorites; Forever New. They always seem to have a decent selection of cute pieces with great quality to boot!

I did also bought four crop-tops just because they had a sale on at the time. These (below) were $5 apiece, what a bargain! hah... I already had one in pink which I wore on a cruise I went on, I believe I bought it for roughly $20... Unexpectedly, to my delight, I saw that they had a sale on for these tops, I felt I just had to have the other three colours, specifically the red, white and striped one.
I also picked up another white crop top with lace up detailing which I featured on my previous post here.


Next up is this grey waterfall coat in a size 8 which seems to be very popular this time of year, they were sold out on the website within three days after only becoming available to purchase only recently! I had to go to Bondi to get the size 8 which was the only store stocking it at the time and it was the last one! Phew! This 'waterfall' style is very popular right now and I've been seeing a lot of these types of garments in magazines, the media and various stores.



Next up is The Iconic!! It's an online clothing stores based in Australia. They have amazing customer service and they offer express shipping. I placed an order at night around 8:30pm and got an email back at around 11:15pm advising me that they'd just shipped my order! I got the package the following day, around lunch time! I think that's really amazing!

Plus, if you are not sure about your sizing, you can always order two of them and return the one that doesn't fit! And returning the items to The Iconic is easy! The returned shipping costs are covered, you'd just log in to your account where you'll find a function to return the item and voila! They will email you the shipping label and all you have to do is drop them at a post box or at your nearest post office.

I made this order when they had a 25% off all items offer during a 'Vogue' fashion night!

The first thing I picked up wass this cobalt blue dress in a size 8 which I actually wore on my graduation day.
love the material and the fit; it falls just above my knees and is perfect for work functions or something similar.



I also got my hands on this stripey V-Neck dress with some very cute detailing on the back. I got it in a size 8 and I've been wearing it a lot. The material is nice and thick with perfect length, not too short and not too long.




I also picked up this bikini set from Rusty in a size 10 which I plan to wear on my next trip to Bali!
The bikini also comes with a detachable strap and oh, I love the patterns.




All in all I am very pleased with everything I got from The Iconic, their products are of high quality and are very well-priced. I can't stress enough how much I love and appreciate their customer service.

The last shop I want to talk about is Uniqlo. In the past I had some blue denim jeggings from them which lasted me about two years with everyday wear before the threads started to come loose and not only that, the colour had faded. They are very comfy and perfect for everyday wear so when they had that sale last time I just had to pick up a couple of pairs in maroon and black, pictured below. I must say; the maroon is quite muted, it appears more like dark wine red if that makes sense.



Keep in mind, if you want to invest in pants which will last you a long time with normal use, these are not a good option as they get a bit scruffy after going through many washing cycles.

I also bought two turtle neck long sleeves tops when they were on sale for $10 each, one in creme and the other in black. The material is called 'Supima Cotton', it's very nice! It's thin but still very soft , perfect to layer up in winter with.




So, that's it for today, I hope you enjoyed my post and I will see you on my next one ;p
