This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

When your husband surprised you with a big bouquet of flowers and your first thoughts is - quick let me put on a pretty dress and take a photo of me holding it!⠀
(The only problem with that - you look tired on photos hence me hiding behind this bouquet.)⠀

Now the heatwave is coming to an end (they predicting rain and thunder later on today and I\'m excited!) I can now get back to what I\'m best at - posting pretty pictures while wearing pretty clothes. This was a DKNY dress  I brought from Tk Maxx, retailed originally as $145 - I got it for £10. Bargain! ⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀
⠀
This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

I think us girls can only dream of walking down a red carpet in a designer gowns. As much as I love nosing about Net-a-Porter and gawping at The Duchess Of Cambridge new outfit,realistically it’s not going to happen any time soon. I’m more than happy with Asos and Oasis. Especially I have now given my a self-imposed ‘credit card’ ban.

However said all that, I came across an intriguing website,  Girl Meets Dress. The idea of this you hire a designer dress, wear it somewhere fabulous and then pop it back in the post. Hey presto!

What you do is:

  • Find the dress of your dream
  • Once you found the dress, you need to place the order.
  • Your dress will arrive between 9-5pm on your allocated date, they will even send you a text to tell you your delivery is on it way.
  • Wear the dress and be fabulous for the night.
  • Simple return the dress with a pre-paid label through the post and that it.

If you loved that after doing it once, why don’t you sign up to the monthly membership.  You pay £39 a month by Direct Debit and then every month you can choose a new dress to wear. Don’t want one this month? Pick two the next month. Your first month is completely free.

Of course there’s a little small print hidden away. You do still have to pay £9.95 for delivery (though you can ask for more than one dress to try on), and don’t even think about hiring the dress  without the £7 insurance that goes with it – accident do happen. So girl, if you want a little designer fashion in your life, even if just for the weekend, the Girl Meets Dress monthly membership is a pretty good deal.

    Hi Stephanie, if you do end up hiring then send me a tweet/email on how you get on. It would be interesting hearing your feedback. xx

    PepiSmartDog: interesting concept to rent out your outfits! Thank you for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We always look forward to seeing what your are posting. Woo Hoo! Hope to see you back in the hop again this week too. *waves paw* :=o)

    If only I had somewhere to wear a designer dress! As a mum on maternity leave, the fanciest place I go these days is the local park. #bestandworst

    Wow, I have never heard of things like that. Sounds crazy… good? 🙂

    I haven’t tried it myself, but I thought the concept was such a good idea.

    Well you can always do a Monica and Rachel and hire a dress then sit around drinking cranberry juice 😉

    This looks like an upscale version of LeTote, which allows you to have as many “totes” (three clothing items and two accessories) as you can wear and return each month. I’ve been using LeTote for about eight months and love it. I can see how Girl Meets Dress would be a wonderful companion service, especially if you have a lot of cool events to attend. 🙂

    We have something like that called Rent the Runway here in the U.S. I’ve never tried it, but I’ve heard good things!

    Hey, this is cool, I’ve never heard of the Girl Meets Dress website before. I will be sure to check it out! Love online shopping/window shopping but I never thought of renting a dress before 🙂

    Sounds interesting! This might be a good service for an important day like a wedding or a birthday (all one-day events where you take lots of photos!).

    What an interesting service. I think anything that offers options is great. I just attended a red carpet like ball and was scrounging around town trying to find a dress that would fit my plus sized behind… thankfully I did get one – but still, it can be stressful to do.

  • Dionna Chambers

    Thank you you for sharing! I definitely want to try this service!!

    Hmm I love the idea of this service! I hate spending a lot of money on a dress only to wear it for one occasion!

  • Patricia Conte

    What a great, great service! Wonder (will have to look) if it’s available in the US? Very cool!

  • This is such a cool idea, but pretty sure nothing like this exists in NZ. What an awesome service
