How You Can Get a Funky Conference Dress For Less Than Ten Dollars April 5, 2012 By Karen Andrews 10 Comments Hello! You are welcome to subscribe to my updates for free. Happy reading!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. Ankle boots are years old, from Betts. Photo by: Sarah White.
