Budget shopper Courtney, who runs the affordable fashion Insta page @heysavvy_au said she's "obsessed" with the

collection. Her followers could hardly believe the items were from the budget retailer. "Big W is on fire at the moment, I found some gorgeous on-trend dress beauties yesterday!" one person commented. "Big W has had a glow-up," added another.

One of the most "show-stopping" pieces is the &me Women's Asymmetric Tiered Maxi in pink. For just $35 it's not hard to see why it's flying off shelves. Some even pointed out that it's almost identical to a $120 version they've spotted in another store. "Wow, amazing!! That dress is exactly the same as a Decjuba dress for $120!! I'm sure their fabric is a lot better but still for the price difference - so good," one person commented.
