happy first birthday Rent frock Repeat

They grow up so fast don’t they? Already a year old, Rent frock Repeat has been offering the ladies of the city a place to have the dress of their dreams, for only as long as their fleeting dreams last. Here today, gone tomorrow, with only a memory of the perfect dress to accompany the new #1 on speed dial.

After all, it takes a special kind of someone to give you the above photo along with the promise of commitment-free dressing. RfR > anything.

To celebrate, the ladies had cake.

This lady, however, will celebrate by posting photos taken in the greatest place on earth (tip: not Disney, but rather, RfR studio). Spring weddings in full effect? Check out the cute, colourful options below. Spring wedding attended by an ex in effect? Check out the hot, sequined options below.

new season new bag

Spring brings with it a lot of things : flowers, rain, reminders about overdue blog posts, excuses for croissant park-dates, more reminders about overdue blog posts, and even stronger (and significantly more welcome) reminders that the closet needs an infusion of colour.

No matter how hard I try, it seems that over the course of every winter the wardrobe magically goths itself and nothing lighter than a medium-plus is within reach. Luckily I did manage to start a small stock pile of neon accessories which is making the springtime transition a wee less painful, but something bigger was definitely needed. And with that, I present to you my new love.

*cue angels singing*

Behold the Nella-Bella Hong Kong bag in a freakishly beautiful Turquoise. The brilliant colour instantly pumps up any outfit, but the simple briefcase-like design keeps it from overwhelming your other style efforts. With a removable shoulder strap, you can easily go from daytime hands-free carry all, to evening statement-making flat-shoe-hider. In other words, this thing was made for me.

As usual, the bag is 100% vegan, designed by one of the nicest guys you’ll ever have the pleasure of meeting, Tarek Al-Azbat. And it’s only one of the beautiful choices in the Nella-Bella Spring 2012 Collection. You’ve got the gamut covered with varying sizes, including perennial favourite the London and the NB Man bags that will leave the boys in your life wondering why they tried so hard to cram every single piece of their life into coat pockets (and give me even more things to steal from boyfriend *love you*). Colours are covered here too: blue, pink, turquoise and more for the bright light seekers, with black, grey, khaki and seriously delicious caramel for the basic needs.

So to recap:
1. Spring is here
2. You need a new bag
3. Look, I found you a new bag

(Uber-keener? Head to Chinatown to find a matching ring. Score!)
