I think in these times it is important to watch what you are consuming and that of course includes fashion items. It is not always necessary to buy something new for an occasion even though it does feel nice to have something different. To make up for that there are a few web businesses that are renting designer products. So far they are still in their early stages but the idea is fantastic. You can rent a designer bag, dress and accessories for a weekly or monthly rent and at the end you hand it back and you have not spent a fortune on something you wont wear again or you didn’t need in the first place. After looking around the best one (and there is room for improvement as the selection is not huge but they do seem to have the best product) is Mila & Eddi; another one that is quite good but not yet a chic find level but worth supporting is Love me and Leave me.
ChicFinds stockings in all the high street stores like Sportsgirl, Bardot and at the markets or vintage stores. One amazing vintage store is Eva’s on Johnston Street, Annandale. She has an amazing selection of vintage dresses, furs, shirts and accessories from all periods. Eva’s Vintage and Designer clothing is really worth a look as she has some of the best you will find. http://www.evasvintage.com
