|Oracle Summer Tunic $79AUD|
But, I am always looking for a bargain so I waited hoping that one of two things would happen:
a.) It would go on sale. Like a really big sale.
b.) I would find a similar dress that looked just as amazing for a fraction of the price.
Well, it did not go on sale. But, I found an alternative. Yay! & it is pretty amazing! See for yourself...

This dress is the essence of me.
It is the perfect balance of whimsy, exotic & effortlessly stylish. Just add a messy braid, my oversized rose gold wristwatch and a pair of leather sandals and I am ready to take on the world. :)
This dress is from Forever21. Dresses like this typically range from $10 to $25. I found mine brand new at my local Flea Market for just $4!
The moral of this story?
If something is out of your price range, there are affordable alternatives as long as you are willing to explore a little.
Also, you never know what affordable treasures lurk in local thrift stores, vintage shops & flea markets.
p.s. If any of you have found any awesome bargains lately, send me an email. I would love to hear about them!
