Change..... and the Ultimate Blog party 2011.

Over the last week, I've been thinking... How can I  manage my time better???  I love blogging and really want to post daily.  But, when I work four days a week for up to 12 hours a day, that doesn't leave a lot of time for craft or blogging {insert sad face}. 
 While having coffee with the girls {which I used to do on almost a daily basis} they said how they miss hearing about my shopping bargains.... they suggested posting about my bargains on my blog. 
I love shopping, if it was an Olympic sport I'd win a gold medal!
So let me introduce the new Mummy's dress....
Mummy's dress is a blog about children's fashion on a shoe string budget. 
 I'll continue to repurpose a couple of outfits a week.... and I'll start to do tutorials. 
I'll start sharing my shopping finds for both boys and girls {this way master 9 can be involved}.
I'll continue to feature readers repurposed outfit's, so please email me photo's or email me the link to your blog post mummysdress@hotmail.com.

Today I'm joining the ultimate blog party.  If you're stopping by please leave a comment and I'll come have a look at your blog :)

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

So, here's my first shopping post...
I got this 'Nina and Josh' dress at trade secret.  It was marked down from $59.95 to $20.  When I got to the counter it scanned for $10.... What a bargain!!!!
 I got the shoes at Myer they were marked down from $40 to $27... with a further 75% of the already reduced price... that's right, I paid $6.75.  I love when Myer reduces their clearance stock! 
If you need any children's shoes check out Myers summer clearance shoes.
 Dress - $10
Shoes - $6.75
That's $16.75 for an outfit that was $100.... love it!
Love Nikki xx

Love it! What a beautiful dress, you couldn't make it for $10.
You're a savvy shopper.

p.s that last photo is gorgeous, could be straight out of a magazine.
