What I found at Kmart today: $30 work outfit!

I am having a long break from work (and I still have 4 more weeks)!
There hasn’t been a hell of a lot of styling, my uniform consists of singlets and denim shorts at the moment!

I have spent 2 days at a sales seminar, and actually wore high heels for the first time in a little while. It has been nice having a break from full make up and hair and dressing up every day – but I am starting to miss it!

At a trip to my local Kmart, I got the most wonderful make up haul (Kmart, since WHEN do you sell ELF??) and I will be doing a separate review for those items.

What caught my eye was a great black and white pencil skirt, a peplum top and a pair of burgundy suede pumps. Perfect for work, fitted right in with a lot of my other clothes in my wardrobe and they were cheap. Dirt cheap.

How could I resist?

The skirt and top were $15 each and the pumps were reduced to $9. (I put the shoes back, didn’t end up getting them.) I am wearing my 4 year old Peeptoes shoes here.

What do you think?

I added a previously bought Kmart necklace and a HerFashion box belt.
Looks great without the belt too!


Peeptoe Shoes


This jacket was also bought in Kmart last year, just to keep it in the family!

Here is a couple of other ways I will be wearing these pieces: the top with snake skin pumps and black 7/8 pants, and the skirt with a pink tank, black bag and pumps. To set it off, to go the High Low in the extreme, I have added a Chanel leather Camellia.



I am a fan of the peplum top. I have a white pleather one,  see the post here. I have also done a previous post on the Black jacket with white piping and how to wear it 3 ways. See the post here

Have you scored any great bargains lately? Care to share?

P.S. the Kmart I shop in is in Sydney Australia. Just in case you were wondering. 🙂

Til Next time,

  1. LOVE the outfit! We have Kmart in the states but still don’t get there nearly enough! Thanks for the reminder that I need to shop there more.

  2. I LOVE Kmart for some bargain pieces! Gorgeous skirt, love the peplum combo but doesn’t it POP with the pairing of the pink singlet!?
    I also haven’t been styling much… will have to get back into it. Sare xo
