InVEST in Autumn style…

The mornings are dark and chilly, but the days are still warm. Must be Autumn! The best way to layer up is with a tran-seasonal vest. So here’s my pick of the best from my faves at H­Town… Wool and leather shearling vest from Seed was $599.95, down to $300 plus another 30% off…. makes this beauty $210. That’s a saving of 65%! Pair with jeans, tan boots and shirt underneath for effortless style. Fashion BNKR are always on point and their light grey vest hits the mark. Wear open over a tube dress, or closed as a dress­ you can’t go wrong! And at $100, you save $139.95! You could buy another one in black! Perfectly on trend and perfect for work.   I love a fluffy, furry vest and at Rivalry, this baby ticks all my boxes! $99.99 and it’s all yours to add another level of cool to your outfit! If you can’t go past a classic puffer vest, then head to Esprit. You can pick up this neutral, feather down, super […]

Easter… Hop to it!

Easter is the time to celebrate the change in season, indulge in way too much chocolate and revel in the long weekend. But it’s also an egg-cellent excuse to shop, so here’s my cracking good list for an egg-ceptional Easter (too many puns? Never!)   DECORATIONS Let’s get the decorations and the table ready for lunch at General Trader and Bed Bath N’ Table. These sweet egg cups are just $2.99 and will be used not just for decorating the table (egg soldiers on Easter Monday anyone?). Follow that up with cute egg cosys for $5.99 and pop this LED porcelain bunny ($19.95) in the middle of the table as your centrepiece, and voila, table sorted! For even more sweet deals hop into General Trader for 30% off all Easter product right now. At Bed Bath N’ Table, they have a huge range of decorations including table bunnies ($12.95) and chickens in white, green fuzzy and rose gold. Egg ornaments (any excuse to pull out my wooden tree), little baskets from $6.95 can be hung like bunting […]

Whoa, whoa, I gotta go… back to school… again!

Yes, I’m referencing the B-grade sequel to Grease… but you gotta admit, the songs were pretty catchy… Grease 2 aside, yes, it is back to school already! Gah! Where did my summer holidays go?? Oh, that’s right, entertaining my kiddies so they wouldn’t complain to me about being bored (which they did anyway!!). Seriously, schools hols are so expensive…. Which is why I’ve put together my budget friendly, outlet loving back to school shopping guide. Let’s go…   BACKPACKS Where do I start? Strandbags, Victoria Station Clearance, Bags and Luggage Direct all have a great range of kids kindy or school backpacks, but when I spotted Ben and Holly at Bags to Go for under $15, I knew my daughter would lose the plot. Done deal… They also had a super cute Play School backpack with educational features on it for under $25…awesome! For the tweens, JT Surf has them covered. A wall of Billabong, Roxy and Santa Cruz starting from $35 (down from $70) just waiting to be slung over the shoulder of the […]

Gah Christmas already!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… no, it IS Christmas, like just around the corner!! But don’t fret, I have your back. You can do everything at Harbour Town (or HTown as like to call it), and I mean EVERYTHING. From mum, grandma, dad, kids, pets…and everyone in between. Let’s get shopping…   FOR HER Bags and Luggage Direct have a super sale at the mo, with Tony Bianco bags from $21.50 (these were $99!) and Kardashian Kollection down to $29.50!

One outfit, 4 ways – Spring Racing and beyond!

If you are anything like me, where you love the Spring Racing season, but don’t love how much every different outfit costs then you’ll love this. One outfit, 4 ways. I’ve started with the most gorgeous pair of off white culottes from Cue for a bargain price of $67.50 (original price $225 in full price stores) paired with the coolest top from Seed, which set me back only $63.96 (almost 50% off the original price, thanks very much). The best thing about separates? You can wear them again and again, with a different top or bottom for a completely new look. And guess what? Cost per wear becomes totally negligible. So there, husband…   Derby Day: Traditionally, black and white, I’ve added some stripes and spots for a little personality. Stunning headpiece from Mimco for only $69, plus another 20% off until November 8. Shoes from Nine West $69.96 (ridic, I know!) Necklace $79.20 Mimco (20% off until Nov 8) Clutch $63.20 Mimco   Melbourne Cup Day: This is your day to shine, so dress […]

Winter warmers week!

This weeks shopping trip was a bit wet…but armed with my hot coffee, I was raring to go. And with plenty of shelter shops, ahem, I mean stops, along the way, I was never caught in the rain. First, I found onesies at Sparkles for just $6. Yep, you read right. $6. Surely the fabric would cost more than that… one in every colour please. I then thought I better pick something up for the huz, so I popped into Connor, who were having a super sale of 3 items for $50. Any knit, shirt and jean for $50! Say what?! Needless to say, I didn’t walk out empty handed.. Next stop was City Chic… I must admit, this was my first time in this store, and my glob, was I surprised! Gorgeous cocktail dresses in the most flattering shapes, knits, tops..you name it! In sizes from 14, there was something that would suit everyone. A cream knit with leatherette belt caught my eye, and at $50 it caught the attention of my purse too.. I’ve […]

Lorna Jane becomes a night club…

After having my kids, not only have my feet grown (please tell me I’m not the only one?!) but my fingers are permanently swollen. Not a great look! So my engagement ring and wedding bands have been safely tucked away until I get them resized…except, I spotted the most gorgeous engagement, wedding and eternity ring set at Shiels today at 70% off! A three ring set for less than $1800! Surely I could convince the huz… It feels like everyone is going on a winter escape at the moment, and when I say everyone, I mean everyone except me… first world problems I know. So I don’t feel left out, I wander to Strandbags to see what special deals they have. And they have plenty. Nearly everything is on sale, with their Flylite brand at $100 off. Mmmm, pristine beaches, blue water…I can dream. Also happening today is the massive Lorna Jane warehouse sale. This is on once a year across all outlets only, Australia wide. Nothing is over $60. You could be forgiven for […]

Just a little something for the kids…

I’m always on the lookout for kids clothes…new season, or end of season that I can purchase a size or two bigger for next year. And my go to place is Cotton On Kids; always on trend, always great prices, and huge stock turnover, so there is always something new. I’ve had a few requests for puffer vests and I knew Cotton On Kids could deliver. Great range of colours and styles from $15 – $20! Happy customer indeed! Next stop was Cheeki Kids, another awesome kids clothing and accessories store I’ve been shopping at for years. I love the big brands like Chloe and Burberry, but they also carry the coolest Aussie labels like Munster and Rock Your Baby too..which was 25% off the already marked price. Hulloo… Just a couple of doors down is Step Footwear, and I needed to buy my little Miss some uggs. Found the cutest panda pair by Emu Uggs for only $39.95! That’s a great buy for this iconic brand. I stopped into Typo because their totally cool […]

Boots, coffee and leather

So today, like most days, I go shopping with an open mind… I start with my usual skim latte [skim? full cream? Does it really matter?] at Coffee Club and their sensational smashed avocado on turkish bread with a side of scrambled eggs. To. Die. For. I decide to wander to Mimco to check out any new stock… and lo and behold. A blue beauty of a cross body bag hits me for six. You see, with 3 young kids, a cross body bag is my equivalent to a bejewelled evening clutch. It’s either a baby bag or cross body…that’s as glamorous as I get these days. This baby will be hitting the outlet store in the next week, so I set my alarm on my phone to EXTRA LOUD so I don’t miss out. I’ve had a few requests for tan ankle boots with a mid heel, so I make my way to Wittner. You want tan boots. Wittner have them a plenty. At 65% off, why not pick up a tan, black and […]

Shopping for Father’s Day – tips and bargains!

Last minute bargain Father’s Day Ideas… With Fathers Day just around the corner, I thought I’d help you all out with some top tips on where to shop for the special blokes in your life. You’re welcome. Harbour Town caters for just about every type of dad there is. For the cool casual dad, I’d be heading to Connor, Gazman, Roger David and Oxford. Ed Harry have a great range of new season shirts at outlet prices and at Tarocash there are chinos and shirts as far as the eye can see. If your dad is more into sweating it out then check out Adidas, Fila Brand Direct, Intersport, Sports Power and Converse. Brooks Factory Direct have a huge sale with their runners at more than 50% off! Where at JT Surf, your skater dad can hold onto his youth a little bit more with big surf brands like Hurley, Rip Curl and Santa Cruz. Perhaps you need to shop a more mature look? We’ve got that covered too. Stafford Ellinson, Rivers and Black Pepper […]

Me – huz – kids – now back to me…

I just love wandering Harbour Town, looking for the next bargain, seeing what treasures I can find. As I walked past Millers Fashion, something told me to stop and go in. Call it my bargain instinct. Glad I did, because I found THE softest cargo pant EVER and a navy and white knit all for $31. I repeat, $31 the entire outfit. They have 40% off store wide – even the most reduced stuff. Prices start at a crazy $4…. The huz has specifically asked for work shirts, so I head into Gazman, where racks upon racks of stripe, patterned, plain business shirts are only $29. Done. Now back to me. Nine West have a super sale with 40% off even the sale price…so leather shoes starting at $30? That is so my thing. Designer, cheap, awesome! It’s been a while since I picked something up for the kids, and you can’t go wrong in Smiggle. It’s their go-to whenever we are at H-Town. I love their 3 for $10 tables…something for each of them.

Shop, coffee, shop, coffee and repeat…

Big shopping week, so to fuel up, I start at Silvana Cafe where a coffee and cake deal gives me the caffeine and sugar hit required to go the distance. Yummo. Time for nails. Paris Nails and Beauty have this fandagalled product called SNS, which lasts longer than shellac and is better for your nails than acrylic. I love! And only $45. Once a month, add that to my beauty regime.. Speaking of regime, I really need to exercise more, and I can’t do that without the correct undergarments holding everything in place (read: boobs). So I head into Bonds, as I’ve just discovered they stock a massive range of Berlei. And these are my absolute fave sports bras. Oh, and they have 30% off. Bonus!! Another awesome find if you are new to Harbour Town…Union Clothing are a huge stockist for cmeo collective and Finders Keepers The Label…but at a fraction of the cost. And today, they have racks and racks of stuff at $79.99 and $99.99!! Good gawd… For those that know me, […]

Cross body, cushions and classic suits… just another day at HT!

I still can’t believe Harbour Town has an Oroton outlet. I mean, a minimum of 60% off? That’s just nuts. And we all know how much I love navy. And cross body bags. And sunnies. So when I can pick up both, at under $200, from Oroton, you can imagine my excitement. Squeeee!! I’m also getting organised for Father’s Day, and at Cosmetics Fragrance Direct, they have the most awesome Kenneth Cole gift packs for just $49. Scentsational… If you’re anything like me and have a scatter cushion obsession, then head into Adairs. Bright, fun, stylish and only $9.95 each. Perfect for my daughters room. Next to the other 67 cushions on her bed… I’ve had a few requests for stylish, slim, well made and cut suits. Well, Stafford Ellinson is the place to go. Handstitched, wool, classically made and considering these suits are usually over $1000….you can pick one up from $349. Would you like me to repeat that? $349. Yep, most are 70% off the original retail price. Just don’t tell the big […]

If the price is right…

There is usually no rhyme or reason when I shop. I generally have an idea of what I’m looking for, but if something grabs my eye, I’m easily swayed. Especially if the price is right. Granted, I am supposed to be looking for some shoes for the huz, so I wander into Industrie first, as I love their styling. Lo and behold, they don’t disappoint! Gorge lace up boat shoes for just $59.95. Done. As I walk past Converse, my eyes are drawn to the wall of sneakers at 50% off!! Wall to wall Converse at a fraction of the cost. My boys love these shoes – cool, comfy, last forever. Popped into Oxford, and boy am I glad I did…everything in store is at least 75% off! Hot cocktail dresses at around $57? You betcha. Never thought I’d be writing that sentence…. Next up at Diesel they have a whole rack of hawt mens shirts at 70% off. Only $50. Tick another item off for the huz. Such a good wifey. I’ve been looking […]

Welcome to Lia Loves Outlet

Hi, my name is Lia. And I’m a shopaholic. I love shopping. There, I said it. I. Love. Shopping. I love it, love it, love it! I love the thrill of setting off in search of an item, let’s say a harem pant in a leather look (specific I know, but work with me here) and coming away with an entire outfit, said leather pants included, for the price I was willing to pay just for the pants. Really, if you have a pulse and get excited by words like ‘SALE!’ and ‘40% off!’, and your significant other has looked at you suspiciously when you’ve stepped out in a new outfit (‘what this old thing?! I’ve had this for AGES!’) then no doubt, you love shopping too. Welcome to my club. And I’m not just talking clothes. Oh no, my addiction does not discriminate. My heart beats a little bit faster walking into a homewares store (don’t get me started on mid century modern). Handbags, oh my glob, handbags. I have more shoes than days in the year. I’ve got every […]

I’ve had this for AGES!’) then no doubt, you love shopping too. Welcome to my club. And I’m not just talking clothes. Oh no, my addiction does not discriminate. My heart beats a little bit faster walking into a homewares store (don’t get me started on mid century modern). Handbags, oh my glob, handbags. I have more shoes than days in the year. I’ve got every […]
