As we mentioned in previous article it’s more than hard to save up some money if you are living your college life or simply don’t have full time, well paid job. Still, the spring fashion fever gets us all, so it’s good to know how and where to grab some nice pieces at reasonable price and not feel guilty afterwards. So, here are the next three brands on our budget friendly list that you will love. Forget about window shopping with Bhalo, Estele Dévé and Princess Polly.


You will buy good if you buy at Bhalo, since the brand’s name has the meaning of „good“. Bhalo is Australian ethical fashion label, founded in 2009, that deserves everyone’s attention. All the products are made from ethically hand woven and hand embroidered cotton fabrics and the price range is from $50 to $150. Their limited edition garments include shirts, skirts, tops and dresses of all sizes, shapes and prints with special attention to natural hand embroidery. Brand was founded by Operations Manager of a Bangladeshi charity, Shimul Minhas Uddin and Australian designer Jessica Priemus. In 2008. they met working at a charity in Dhaka. Since they had the same vision about doing the business at that is, producing items focused on community development and honorable working conditions, they used their skills to create a label that would support rural artisans in Bangladesh.

Since starting in 2009. the award-winning label has gained both Australian and international media attention. We would say the highlights of collection are dresses of very interesting cut and design, but you can check out for yourself: www.bhaloshop.com
