Dressed Up

recessionista n. A person who dresses stylishly on a tight budget.

With the economy in free fall and the hip pocket being mugged by rent/mortgage increases and petrol prices so high you think you have blurred vision, I can feel my (already fairly teeny) clothes budget shrink in fear of the dreaded 'R' word!!

If this sounds like you too, head to Dressed Up, a website where the latest fashions from known Aussie labels (Nicola Finetti, Manning Cartell, Life with Bird to name a few) can be rented for one day, one week or a month for a fraction of the retail price. All with the click of your mouse!

A great idea for those who can't bear the though
t of wearing the same outfit twice or even budget conscious bridesmaids and wedding guests. Why buy a gown you'll only wear once when you can just hire it! All the glossy fashion mags have been preaching about investing in the classic pieces that never go out of style but with the party season approaching and several weddings on the horizon there is only so many times the same tired old frocks can be dragged out!

How it works (in the words of Dressed Up):

1 borrow

Browse through and find the garment that you love, then click "Borrow".
Your Borrowed garment will be delivered to you beautifully wrapped and ready to be hung in your wardrobe. Delivery is approx. 1-4 business days to metropolitan Australian Locations

2 enjoy

Keep it as long as you like! A week! A month! The choice is yours.
Rental is on a weekly basis, so if you find you would like to wear your garment again you can choose to keep it for as long as you like.

We are here to make you happy, If your not thrilled with what you have borrowed, we'll make things right.
