Article by Kate Lillian Muir - Trends Are Like Boys
If you are anything like me, then receiving an invitation to attend anything from a day at the races, a wedding or a black tie ball, and pretty much any special occasion in between, gives you wardrobe anxiety.
The internal dialogue often begins as; What should I wear? What will I wear? What will everyone else be wearing? I’ve got one thing…um… but everyone saw me wearing it, so that won’t do! And this all undoubtedly ends in with; “Oh no! I’ve got nothing to wear!”
And then begins… the impulsive, the inevitable, shopping trip! You know the one, it’s the one where you are so desperate to find the right dress that you end up forking out a fortune on yet another dress that you are never going to wear again.
Well ladies, have I got some news for you! Have you heard of Dressedup.com.au? No? Well allow me to bring you in on a little secret! (If you said yes, then you can probably stop reading this because you are totally all in the know and should probably be writing this article. Oh and yeah… thanks for letting us know!)
Dressedup.com.au are an online god send which loans you amazing pieces for your special occasions at seriously affordable prices! So here’s how it works:
1. Check out their carefully selected collection online at www.dressedup.com.au or if you live in Sydney go and check out their gorgeous CBD studio.
2. Choose your dress and borrow it! You can have it for a week, a month, whatever you want! If you select online your dress will be with you in 1-4 working days, or if you are in studio more often than not know you can walk out the door with you dream dress.
3. Look smoking hot in the piece you picked out!
4. Return! That’s right, you just post it back! They handle all the dry cleaning for you!
Ok ladies, I’m sure you’ve switched sites by now (sorry Adrian) and are already perusing the selection of brilliant Australian designers stocked on the site, but if you are still here I thought that I would let you know that they currently stock Alice McCall, Jayson Brunsdon, Nicola Finetti, Wayne Cooper, Camilla and Marc, Rachel Gilbert, Camilla, White Suede and Shakuhachi.
Why such glowing praise for Dressedup.com.au? They recently came to the rescue for me when I was looking for a knock out dress to wear to a black tie ball. Oh! If I had a dollar for all the times I’ve told my girlfriends about dressedup.com.au… the millions I would have!
