Girl Meets Dress: why buy when you can hire?

It is Christmas party season and I’ve a credit-crunching solution to your annual search for a festive frock. Girl Meets Dress is the ideal way to get celebrity style and that all-important ‘Wow-factor’ without purging your present budget.

The concept is simple and timely. Choose from more than 500 different styles from over 100 worldwide designer brands, including Marc Jacobs, Herve Leger, Halston Heritage and other form-fitting designs. Borrow two or three, try on and only pay for the one you wear. Next day delivery is available for anywhere in the UK and prices start from £29 for two nights hire. The website even take care of the dry cleaning.

Browsing the website is so much fun and, if you are in need of inspiration, there is an entire section currently devoted to New Year’s Eve party wear. Here you will find more sparkle than the Thames fireworks and the chance to adopt not just a dress, but a new, more confident persona, if you wish.

I tested their service for my annual Hallowe’en ball and it was the ideal way to feel like an angel on the most devlish of nights. I was torn between a gorgeous pleated Ekaterina Kukhareva number and a one-shoulder Gorgeous Couture, Bailey Maxi Blush, for £69. Gorgeous won the day and I had so many compliments on the night. It was a shame to send the dress back but I honestly cannot think of another occasion that the style would have been suitable for. So why clog up an already over-crowded wardrobe?

I’ve found a solution to so many party dress dilemmas. New Year’s Eve, my birthday, even my niece’s prom – there are frocks on Girlsmeetsdress.com to flatter and suit all occasions. It’s a chance to rent out much more than a dress. The confidence from the compliments just adds that little extra Christmas magic, any time of year.
