stop the press: cotton on has some surprisingly fresh finds

It’s a phrase I use an awful lot but it seriously could not be more appropriate than right now - who’d have thunk it? I don’t know who’s buying for Cotton On at the moment but they need a goddamn pay rise! If you’re like this binch and on a budget it’s time to bite the bullet & start shopping a little more economically. There’ll be no judgement from yours truly.

pastel net bag

Here in Australia our grocery stores have only just banned plastic bags and the nation has gone crazy! Net bags are the perfect alternative - they squish up super small into your other bag and will be readily available whenever you’re buying some snacks.

Alternatively you can make like almost every fashionasta all over the globe has recently and don them as a complete fashion statement. Personally I think they’re a nice alternative to the clear pvc bag trend currently engulfing the fashion world. The premise is similar but the execution is a little nicer.

chunky sneakers

They’re EVERYWHERE this season and rightly so. Finally a trend my podiatrist and chiropractor would support! Ultimate comfort and ultimate, instant ‘it girl’ status - you have no reason not to at least give them a try! The wonderful thing about these Cotton On pairs is they’re cheap so you can test if they’re your thing or not before investing in a $1400 Balenciaga pair. Bloody bargain!

zipped turtleneck

If you’ve ever scrolled my instagram for even a second you will know how much I adore turtlenecks. These are possibly the most perfect, versatile option - in the warmer weather, or in the thick of the club, you can zip the neck down for some breeziness. These bad boys are a cute fashion statement on their own with some simple bottoms. They’re also perfect for layering in the cooler months!
