How You Can Get a Funky Conference Dress For Less Than Ten Dollars

I knew it was going to be a tall ask, but I’ve been on the hunt for a bargain after the twenty-five dollar Alannah Hill dress I wore to the Aussie Bloggers Conference last year. Could I improve on that?

Turns out – yes.

I wore this to the Digital Parents Conference last week and I got it from Savers for $9.99. It is a size ten and is a little big around my shoulders, so I wore a black singlet underneath, just in case. I wouldn’t have wanted anyone to catch an accidental glance of side boob or anything.

I’ve talked about MinkPink before – one of my favourite dresses is the one I wore in the November 2011 book vlog.
