DFO Brisbane: Shopping For Spring Accessories

Today was a fun girls day out! We started our day at DFO Brisbane, shopping for spring accessories, and ended the day with dinner and drinks.

We all had such a great time at DFO, and came home with at least one shopping bag each! Nothing beats the giggles and quality time you get shopping together with friends. There were plenty of different stores to keep us all interested, and with up to 70% off, something to fit everyone's budget.


Our main destinations for Spring accessories were Oroton and Forever New, although of course we stopped in to check out the other amazing sales going on in the outlets! I shared some photos of our shopping on instagram as it happened, but here's a reveal of the accessories I bought:


  1. Oroton vanity-jewellery roll in pink. The pink is such a cheerful Spring colour, will brighten up the inside of any bag! Was $125, reduced to $50. 
  2. Forever New 'Poppy' gunmetal embellished clutch. Caught my eye from across the store, the perfect Spring bling! Was $49.95, reduced to $34.95.
  3. Forever New 3 pack belts in orchid petal / glitter / white croc. Great pastel belts for a new season colour update to winter dresses. Was $19.95, reduced to $4.95.
  4. Forever New coral / white wrap around charm bracelet. Such a cute piece, couldn't resist picking it up to add some colour to bracelet stacks. Was $16.99, reduced to $7.95.

Some great bargains there, I saved $114! Enough for another shopping trip.... What do you think of my purchases?


Brisbane DFO: located at Skygate; 1 Airport Drive, Brisbane. Open 7 days, 10am - 6pm.

Such a fun day, thank you to DFO! What I wore:

Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
