I've always wanted to wear a piece by Lover, especially after stepping into their store at the Strand in Sydney and seeing the magic of their gorgeous AW16 collection 'Journey' in real life. I don't think I've seen any other fashion label do lace as well as Lover do, and not in so many elegant and feminine cuts and colours. Lover are at the higher end of the price scale so they haven't exactly been within my grasp, but thanks to Her Wardrobe I've been able to get my hands on one to wear!
Her Wardrobe offers a large range of beautiful designer dresses for rent (you can choose a 4 day or 8 day time frame, ie. enough for the two weekends) which I think is a great idea, because frankly, can you really justify forking out up to $1000 on a single dress you wear for one event? And even if you keep it, you don't really want to wear the same thing again to another event. It just makes so much sense to wear a range of beautiful designer pieces to different occasions, take loads of photos on the night to show it off, and then return it (saving lots of money and wardrobe space in the process).
I'm so glad to be on the road to recovery after my bronchitis, thanks so much for the well wishes everyone! It's been great to hit the gym for the first time in ages yesterday and start feeling healthy again.
