I’ve long been a fan of Mia Freedman, and her first book, The New Black, is one of my favourites. I’m particularly fond of Chapter Three: Cheap is the New Black and the idea that wearing a bargain comes with its own level of fashion cred.

Bargain shopping is possibly my all-time favourite activity, and fortunately there are plenty of opportunities to get a fashion fix without resorting to Shop-Hide-&-Lie (that would be Chapter One of Mia’s book).

It’s with that in mind that the Overdressed website brings you details of markets and secondhand boutiques in Hobart which I believe are absolute treasure troves of new and pre-loved clothing, all designed for the dedicated bargain-shopper.
