It’s hard to believe it’s only been a year since The Outnet graced our online presence with fabulous bargains on designer labels. In this time the Net-A-Porter outlet spin-off has allowed us to pick up the likes of Halston, Balmain and Pucci for a fraction of the retail price.
House of Turtle would like to say thanks to The Outnet – you rock our world… and of course, Happy Birthday! Looking forward to many more years ahead.
PS. For those who RSVP’d, don’t forget The Outnet $1 sale is on today!
Two theatrical shows (12.30pm and 1.30pm) will feature GPO’s newest recruits, Manning Cartell, Acne, Alpha 60 and LIFEwithBIRD, alongside high-end favourites Lisa Ho, Akira and Leona Edmiston, amongst other GPO favourites.
Set against a dramatic backdrop of black and gold, GPO’s Feast of Fashion shows will be reminiscent of opulent baroque glamour.
For those of you without tickets to the shows, be sure to pop in to Melbourne’s GPO this Thursday anyway, as the doors will be open from 10am to 8pm for special in-store offers and designer appearances.
See you there! Keep an eye out for post-show round up on House of Turtle this Thursday.

Melbourne’s very own Obus are moving!
To celebrate they’re having a massive Studio Sale next week. With great offers on seconds, samples, shoes and their summer range, you’d be crazy to miss it. Plus, they are selling their old fabrics… which means the more talented of us can dust off our sewing machines and create our own Obus inspired pieces! I can’t sew at all. BUT, that’s hardly the point. 😉
Exciting news! Dinosaur Designs have opened their new Sales and Seconds Store, Extinct, in Strawberry Hills Sydney.
Extinct provides samples, seconds and discontinued Dinosaur Designs Homewares and Jewellery. All items are hand made in Australia; some may have slight imperfections.

Long time readers and friends know that I have what I call my Rachel Zoe moments. You know the ones where I say ‘OMG I die’ and ‘loves loves loves it’. Today is one of those days.
Precious Love is a brand spanking new online jewellery and accessories store that offers a wide range of gorgeous and affordable high quality fashion accessories – including rings, necklaces, bracelets, brooches, bags and more.
With bejewelled and metal cuffs, sparkling animal rings, ’80s style earrings and glittering clutches, you’ll ‘shut it down’ in no time… and at an affordable price. I love the blingy rings and Swarovski clutches. Perfect for jazzing up a simple outfit and when channeling your inner Rachel Zoe.
Precious Love are also available at design markets around Melbourne over the next few months, including this Thursday night at the South Melbourne After Dark market. Be sure to pop by to check out some of their amazing one-off pieces which are not available online.
And, as a special offer to you my lovely readers, Precious Love are offering 10% off their entire collection till 16 December 2009. Simply enter LOVE at checkout. I know, I know… ‘Shut up right now’.
The first ever Thurley family and friends sale is on this Wednesday 22 July in Carlton. Check the invite for details.
Thurley was launched in 2005 by Helen O’Connor, who studied at RMIT in Melbourne, and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York (where she was offered a scholarship).
This unique label debuted its first collection at the Winter 2006 L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, where it was short-listed for the LMFF Designer Award. Since then, Thurley has well and truly made its mark in the fashion industry and grown significantly in popularity for its beautifully tailored, delicate and feminine collections.
See you at the sale.
I love sales, particularly Mimco‘s sales. They always have great items that are perfect for staying in touch with the latest fashion trends, for a fraction of the price.
Above are some key pieces from their sale range that will keep you on trend this winter. These pieces are perfect for adding that special touch to your outfit without going overboard or breaking your piggy bank.
Don’t forget to check out the Casa di Tartaruga home page for the latest sales, discounts and offers. Retailers just can’t seem to help themselves at the moment… everywhere I look it’s 20% off here, 20% off there. Must be something to do with the global economy or the Government’s economic injection or something. Either way, who doesn’t love a good old fashioned discount. Bring it on! At the moment there are sales and offers from Gorman, Witchery, Veronika Maine and Leona Edmiston, and Kookai are having 20% off in-store today only (2 April) – so get in fast!
Remember, I update this regularly – so it’s worth your while checking the site, or following me on Twitter for updates: http://twitter.com/houseofturtle
PS. Monthly Hero for April coming soon… trying to decide what to pick! tuxedo jacket, leather jacket, fur gilet or saddle bag? Hmmm… thoughts anyone?
