Storeroom Vintage X 1800 Tequila
Surry Hills' coolest vintage emporium Storeroom Vintage recently moved spots on Crown Street. They also buddied up with 1800 Tequila on an archival capsule—the result of which is a highly coveted collection of 1,800 vintage pieces hand-picked by Storeroom's founder, Lee Bob. He's dressed Kendall Jenner, A$AP Rocky and Halsey, so you know, he's good at clothes. Prices kick off at $60, and there are free tequila cocktails on hand, because, who doesn't want to sip a margarita while shopping?
When: Saturday 17 August, 12pm - 8pm
Where: Storeroom Vintage, 316-318 Crown St, Surry Hills

We love an outlet. There’s something almost covert about them, because discounts like these make you feel like you’re in on a secret and getting away with something epic. 2XU's online outlet archive is divvied up into under $50, under $100 and under $150, and there are many epic athleisure steals to be had. Side note: the best thing about workout gear is that you can definitely write off any purchases as an investment in your health and general self-care. Even if you don’t end up actually working out in it, leggings are widely and accurately considered to be the comfiest clothes around so it makes sense to stock up.
When: While stocks last
Where: Online here
We'll be honest—this sale intel is almost too good to share. Iconic Australian designer Lee Mathews totally wooed us this year at Fashion Week, and while her stunning dresses will typically set you back a pretty penny, her online sale section has timeless pieces from recent collections at a fraction of the cost. For weddings or other fancy shindigs, or just walking down the street, a Lee Mathews piece is the special purchase you totally deserve, especially at 60% off.

AFTRS Library Sale
Yep, it’s a library sale—stay with us here! We love Netflix as much as the next person but we do sometimes yearn for the nostalgia of a physical book, magazine or movie for your at home collection. Plus, who knows, they could go the way of records and become a collectors edition somewhere down the line. With hundreds of books, magazines, DVDs and Blu-rays all costing $5 or less, the AFTRS library sale is definitely worth checking out! Head here for more info.
When: Until Saturday 17 August
Where: Building 130, Australian Film Television and Radio School, Bent Street, Entertainment Quarter
Sydney-based jewellery designer Holly Ryan's new collection is sustainable and stunning. Check it out here.
