Look and feel like a movie star
It's Friday afternoon, you and some friends are meeting up with some hot guys, but not quite sure of what to wear. You want something sexy but not revealing. Sexy enough to make a statement. You want something affordable but not tacky. But where can you find some affordable outfit that you can indulge without costing a fortune. Well. Fret no more! Here are five shops that I've gathered for you to browse and enjoy!
This shop carries over 1000 different pieces and style of clothing. The price range from $2 upward. If you are looking for something casual, work outfit, a little black or red number to impress your date. Jackets, cardigans, shorts, and other array of outfit that caters for everyone or anyone.

You will also find plain short or long skirts for $7.

Trading hours are from 10AM to 7PM, Monday to Sunday, except Thursday where they close at 8PM. Phone 9212 6504.
Its not a name of a shop. But on level one at Market City, Haymarket, an area had been designated to showcase selections of clothes, shoes, bags and more on basement price. Prices vary and can get as low as $5 for an outfit.
5. Big Bargain - 2 This shop located at 550 George St is massive. It's collections will take you from the gym to an outfit that you can wear to impress. Colourful skin tights, denim shorts,suede singlets, array of sun dresses, sequinned dresses, and it goes on and on. Price range are from $10.
So what are you waiting for? Get those legs going, head after work, on your lunch break, or on the weekend. You don't need a fortune to keep up with the fashion. Brag and wear those outfits with pride and still have a lot of spare change for that cocktail that your looking forward to.
