You've spent weeks buying presents and preparing food for others. Time to slow down and give yourself a treat, and an inexpensive one at that. There's a new dress shop in town, and it won't cost you an arm and a leg to walk away with a new look.
Christine White has just opened The Bowerbird's Closet, "featuring a collection of beautiful, affordable women's fashion". "Beautiful" and "affordable" make a great combination, and Christine will help you choose the look which suits you and your purse.
She sources her stock from Australian wholesalers and through her daughter who is based in Bali. Needless to say, the dresses from Bali are well suited to our Queensland climate – bright and colourful and cool. With temperatures predicted to soar through summer, you are bound to find something that will carry you through these hot and sticky days, be it a dressy or casual occasion.
The shop is situated conveniently at the pedestrian lights directly opposite Kenmore Village. Why not combine a grocery shop with something a little more exciting? Public transport users are also well catered for with the bus stop just a few minutes' walk away. With prices ranging from $20 to $130, and averaging $50-60, you are bound to find the perfect outfit.
