$1 Well Spent!

It’s been ages since I’ve written a fashion blog!!! So much has been happening with other parts of my life I just haven’t had the time. But watch this space as it’s getting closer to winter and you all know I LOVE winter fashion. I will be doing a series of winter fashion blogs in the coming weeks!

But today I had to share my recent most bargain purchase. My yellow top for $1!!! That’s right $1!!!! As I walked through the aisles of K-Mart the other day, they had sale racks with very little left on them, but neatly stacked in a row were a dozen yellow tees. The yellow caught my eye at first, as this is one of my favourite colours that I love to wear, but it’s not the most popular in stores. When I went over and had a look at the sale ticket it was marked $1!!!! I couldn’t believe my eyes and I said to my 2 year old daughter who looked back at me with her big blue eyes “OMG Mia these tips are $1!!!! Lol! I had to giggle to myself when other people were stopping and saying the same thing!

I couldn’t resist and bought one. It may not last long and may shrink in the wash and be only good for one wear, but I don’t care as it was $1!!!!! Never in all the years of my bargain findings have I purchased a top for under $5. I think on a few occasions I have been lucky enough to nab a top for $3 or $4 but $1- I was impressed!

I’m not too proud to buy clothes from anywhere. Clothes are just material sewn together to cover our bodies. As long as it looks good, feels good on and is exactly what I want, I purchase and for $1 you can never ever go wrong!!!

I wore my top today and I love it!! Very comfy on:)

Trew’s Christmas Traditions #3…..Christmas Clothes!

I just love how patriotic my children are. Whether it be Christmas, Easter, Australia Day or wear red for Daniel Morcombe, they are right in there embracing the moment with their clothes!

In the past it was so hard to find nice christmas shirts for kids to wear, but this year in particular, the christmas shirts, particularly for girls, are just gorgeous! When I bought the kid’s their first Christmas t-shirt this year, Sienna couldn’t wait to wear it! I held her off as long as I could but by the time we started to put our decorations up mid November, there was no stopping them….so for the next 6 weeks their wardrobe would consist of everything Christmas….pjs, shorts, skirts, dresses, hair clips, ribbons, shirts, you name it they wear it!

Sienna was so excited to finally wear her new shirt:)

We are also very lucky to have my beautiful mother who sews. The kids not only adore their nanny, but absolutely love the fact that they can put an order in for something and nanny has it made within a few days! They have loved going through materials and patterns with mum and picking out what they want. My mum is such a talented women and we’ve been telling her for years that she needs to sell her gorgeous pieces! Mum has made the kids shorts, skirts, dresses, pj boxer shorts and even a button and collared shirt for my nephew!

Here are some of the gorgeous things mum has made for the kids……

Straight skirts





Girls shorts


Flowing skirt


Boys shorts


Pj shorts


And this is how my children sport their outfits…..






Thank you mum for always helping the kids embrace the Christmas spirit! Their beautiful pieces of clothing will always be cherished and worn with absolute pride!


After a long (but lovely fashion wise) winter, the warmer weather is starting to greet us so what better way to sort through our existing summer wardrobe and stock up on what we need! I’m in the middle of compiling stuff for my summer fashion blog so keep an eye out in the coming weeks!

The point of this fashion blog is to promote Coles’ range of clothing called ‘Mix’! I originally came across the Mix brand about a year ago when it was being introduced at our local Pick and Pay! One of the first things I bought was a running outfit (I know shocking lol)! Since then I’ve bought a heap of different things from pants, jackets, to casual tops and shorts! So far I have never been disappointed by their quality (they wash really well) and the best bit their prices are awesome!

Last week I picked up 4 singlet tops that were $6 each or 2 for $9, a pair of tailored black shorts for $19 and a beautiful pair of earrings for $10….6 things for under $50 I was happy with that!


The most exciting thing about this range is that they have bought out babies, kids and men’s clothing! Again the quality is awesome and the prices are fantastic! I would definitely recommend if you are ever at Sunnybank Hills Shopping Centre check out the Mix range of clothing situated upstairs at Coles (the old Pick and Pay)!
