Now THAT could work. Postage from the UK works out way cheaper than Australia. I'll let you know if I get stuck, thanks guys!

I don't know if it's obvious, but I kind of need togs.

Thoughts on this? It's NZD $215, but really high quality, made in Australia by an ethical company that is minimal waste, vegan and supports gender equality. (Because I'm one of those people who checks all that shit out now before buying anything new.) So, maybe worth it?

"A bold, stylish one-piece swimsuit designed with V neckline and low V back in a matte performance Italian Lycra that moulds to the body, is quick drying, resistant to sand and offers a 50+ UV protection. This one piece uses double layered fabric in a seamless construction for comfortable fit and a smooth silhouette."

I don't think I could justify spending that much on swimmers but if it ticks all the boxes and you like the design, go for it!

That's my main dilemma, man. It's SO much more than I would usually spend on swimwear, but if it's as good quality as it says, theoretically it'll last years, and maybe be worth it ... I remember feeling this torn about a Seafolly bikini when I was 15, but I bought it on that same rationale and it's still going strong now, 13 years later.

This is an aside from the ethical / sustainability factors, but my Target swimsuit ($40) lasted longer than all the more expensive Surf Brand and Boutique ones I've previously had. Honestly, swimmers are the most unreliable things, you think you're buying quality but one summer later and it's thinned out and the elastane stuff is showing through.

That's what makes me so nervous about buying swimwear in general, you never seem to know what you're getting! There are a couple of brands I'd feel really confident about, like Seafolly - mainly because of my own experience, but then I'm basing that on a bikini I bought 13 years ago, and maybe they're not as good now as they were then? They do seem to get pretty good reviews in general, though.

I wish swimwear was something that came with a warranty.

$215 is a lot for a pair of swimmers. That said, if you think about it in terms of cost-per-wear, it's almost definitely a style that will be flattering and you won't be tired of by next summer. 
Where that theory falls down is, as you said, if it is actually durable and as good quality as they advertise (you could maybe look up reviews), and if you lose/gain weight and they no longer fit. But those are both things you can't really predict, so it is a bit of a gamble.

I guess it boils down to a) Do you actually need new swimmers? b) Do you have that money to spend without sacraficing something else you need/would rather have?

I love this dress so much but it's listed as "one size fits all" and that is not a style where one size fits all would apply.
So I'm not going to buy it because I know that's not going to fit properly, but now I'm looking for a dress like that one.

I had a look on ASOS and they had lots of similar style dresses, none the same colour and most of them pretty boring and wedding/princessy but this one is nice: http://www.asos.com/needle-thread/needle-thread-coppelia-embellished-ballet-tulle-maxi-dress/prd/5987541?iid=5987541&clr=Dustlilac&SearchQuery=tulle%20dress&pgesize=160&pge=0&totalstyles=160&gridsize=3&gridrow=46&gridcolumn=2

Looks like they have only two sizes available and both are too big, but maybe stores like ASOS might be worth a look?

Oh the same designer makes a cute olive skirt you could totally wear over a long sleeve skinny to achieve the same look? Although you can probably buy tulle skirts like anywhere really I guess? http://www.asos.com/needle-thread/needle-thread-tulle-midi-skirt/prd/7115589?iid=7115589&clr=Khaki&cid=17175&pgesize=36&pge=0&totalstyles=56&gridsize=3&gridrow=5&gridcolumn=2

There's a store near where I used to live that sold heaps of shoes like that, not just ankle boots but knee highs, flats, heels.

I feel like it's such a cruel joke the Shopping Gods have played on us, that there is such a thing as well-cut, flattering, high quality, long-lasting clothes, but that they're all sold by places like Country Road where, sure, the cardigan is perfect, literally your dream cardigan, ticks all of your cardigan wishlist check-boxes, but costs $159.

For a cardigan.

And on one hand you're like, well, I spend $30-$60 most years replacing shitty cheap cardigans, that are made of synthetic materials and don't look or feel anywhere near as lush as that cardigan, and that cardigan would probably last years.

But $159?

It's this one, by the way. "A modern take on a classic cardigan." Merino silk, cut loose, low v-neck, drop shoulder ... the perfect length, and loose without being oversized ... and $159.
