The Viva Team's Smith & Caughey's Sale Picks

From fashion to homewares, the team share their bargain finds


Amanda Linnell, managing editor

"New luggage, like this cabin case from Delsey, is top of my current wishlist, ahead of a trip to Europe."

$311.90, down from $479.95

Angela Casley, recipe editor

"This is the perfect tea pot for my latest craze - fresh mint, ginger and lemon tea. Left to infuse for a few minutes, then strain clear and hot. Occasionally I add a bit of honey."

$31.90, down from $39.95

Shandelle Battersby, lifestyle and commercial editor

"The coat hooks on the back of my front door are very boring and I think a moose hook or two would look really great – functional as well as fun."

$12.50, down from $25

Lucy Casley, designer

"Kate Spade has the ultimate fashion watch, with the sassy window reading 'I need a vacation' at 3 o'clock – that time when we all just need a break. This gold-tone stainless steel band means timeless quality, with a hint of Kate Spade’s classic blue."

$351.20, down from $439

Babiche Martens, photographer

"I always need to wear something on my feet around the house - I can't stand bare feet on cold floors, so they get pretty well worn and need replacing yearly. I like having a bit of fun with my slippers and these mini metallic Uggs are very cute."

Danielle Clausen, editorial assistant

"On cold winter mornings I’ve been reaching for my black sweater a little too often. I love the chunky texture of this cable knit Maison Scotch sweater. I'd pair it with tailored trousers and black suede pumps for the office, or my favourite baggy jeans and ballet flats on the weekend."

$299.40, down from $499

Janetta Mackay, beauty editor

"Stocking up on nice new bed linen and towels is my idea of department store sale heaven, and the Amara white bedcover set appeals. I always make a beeline to the manchester section, before a whiz through china and crystal, where some new champagne flutes might be in order."

$305.40, down from $469.99

Zoe Walker, associate editor

"This Twenty-seven Names dress is ideal for the weekend - and made from crinkle rayon, so I don't have to worry about getting it wrinkled."

$228, down from $380

Dan Ahwa, fashion editor

"These Chalmers shorts look comfortable and perfect for bedtime."

$41.90, down from $69.90
