1 Day rental:

At this stage we only offer one rental option for a single event or special occasion. When you are selecting a date in the calendar you may notice it automatically blocks out four days, this is covering the return postage and cleaning time. Please make sure the actual date you wish to wear the garment is the first blocked out day with three blocked out days following this. All garments must be returned the very next working day with our pre paid postage bags (Hand over to the cashier any official NZ Post office).

Postal Try on:

Postal try ons are only available on Thursday and Friday. If you want it on a Thursday book it on Wednesday, If you want it on Friday book it Thursday. (No Try on bookings will be accepted on any other day)

Postal try ons are available for any items that have not already been booked out for the current weekend. Please select either the Thursday or the Friday of the current week only (any try on bookings made beyond the current week will be cancelled. We can pencil this in but cannot guarantee it will be available. If no one books a rental for that date then we can send it to you to try on.) You will get one day only to try it out and this must be sent back the very next working day. The garment will arrive with a large tag attached to the front, if this has been removed or the garment is at all dirty or smells of perfume you will be charged the full rental price. If you want to hold onto the garment for that weekend let us know asap and we will charge you the full rental price minus the $30 try on fee. If you wish to send it back and rent it another time you will be required to pay the full rental price.  

 

Vintage fashion, quality clothing designed for longevity, these beauties have lasted over 30 years where as clothes today are lucky to last 30 minutes. They don't make things like they used to! We celebrate the past and keep the stories of each garment alive, whilst you create your own magical moments. It's true that the world is overflowing with too much stuff! while we love the brands changing the fashion game and designing for good, sometimes we need to look around for what already exists and ticks our boxes before choosing new. That's why we take the time to collect and curate these treasures and make them super easy for you to get your hands on.

Redesigned, Up-cycled and modernised. This collection is 100% recycled and created using old but great quality garments. Sometimes you fall in love with a print, colour or the texture of the fabric but the dress itself...It might have been right on trend in the 60's but not quite right for the modern world. Sometimes you find a beautiful dress but the fit is all wrong and those shoulder pads are a tad OTT, so you may consider getting it altered but then remember you already have a dusty pile of “clothes to be altered” that you have neglected for years… So you sigh and move on in disappointment. Now that’s a sad story we all know too well! But we have taken on the challenge, we take these garments that are destined for the landfill and give them new life!
