You need new threads, but your bank account is looking a little skint. What do you do? We've all been there, so here's a shopping guide for all you thrifty creative dressers. Now, you can save up for the things that really matter: like visiting Melbourne best lingerie shops, or buying some sweet records from the city's best vinyl shops.
Cheap shopping in Melbourne
The stretch of Collingwood’s Smith Street between Johnston Street and Alexandra Parade is packed with clearance and factory outlets, including Adidas, Converse, Brands United, Mountain Designs, Table Eight and the Golf Clearance Outlet. The truly committed could even take a shopping tour bus that will stop at other warehouse hotspots.
It’s never a good idea to walk into Clear It with a time limit. Let’s face it – at bottom-line prices, you’re going to be there for hours. Cancel all subsequent plans and devote yourself to rummaging through the racks and bins for the best bargains in town (we’re talking hats from Dangerfield for $3, Alannah Hill belts for $5). Then take what you saved and spend it on more clothes. It’s practically free money.
