EOFY findings

I haul clothes twice a year. One at the End of Financial Year Sales (which covers my winter wardrobe) and the other is the after Christmas Sales (which covers the summer wardrobe). I always watch out for 50% or more off. If I want something I will wait for it to go on sale. I'm like this because I don't feel like I need to pay full price to follow trends because fashion changes quickly. Don't you get angry when you pay full price for something only to find it on sale over half price off the next?!

This year I admit I have gone a bit overboard on the spending =S Thanks to the strong Australian dollar and there are so many good bargains out there.
I bought a 3 pack of the cutest Peter Alexander underwear for $19. Was $39. I love Peter Alexander! His lingerie always come in the cutest, most innovative packaging. 
I also bought a whole tonne of other under garments because I haven't bought any in over a year! Best find was a brand name bra (Lovable) that usually retails for $49.95 at the department stores for $5!! X3 and it wasn't tried on =]

Top Row: Glasson's Merino Wool Top (half price), Glasson's navy blue and white striped top (half price), Cotton On striped Jumper ($10, was $29.95), Cotton On striped top ($10, was $20), Glasson's Red and white striped top (half price)
Bottom Row: Glasson's pants ($17.50 was $59.95), Nobody Jeans which is an Australian premium denim brand (normally RRP of $199 and above, got one for $58 and the other for $50ish), Glasson's black leggings/tights (2 for $25), Cotton On navy blue skirt ($5, was $29.95)

You can tell this year is all about the stripes and I bought a lot!

Peter Alexander cardigans!!
The first one has two cute pink bows on the pockets and one at the back ($20 was $79.95 i think)
Second cardigan is a blend of angora, cashmere and other wool with metallic threading to give it some extra character, the buttons are large shiny 'diamonds'  (I think I got this at 60% off)
Last cardigan has cute flower buttons with Swarovski crystals in the flower centre ($49, think it was 30% off...not too sure)
Love the Tag!! Peter Alexander is an Australian Sleepwear brand which has branched out into lingerie, bath products, mens and kids sleepwear and sometimes day wear for women. The quality of his products is high and it's one of my favourite brands which I frequent into, my fellow Australian residents would know how lavishly decorated the stores are with vanilla scented candles usually lit up =]

How is everyone else's shopping expenditures? Any great finds?
