Get your rentals booked for Spring Carnival

Tick, tock, tick, tock… It’s only 9 sleeps until we wave goodbye to Winter and it’s officially time to get your rentals booked for Spring Carnival.

By now you will all know that I’m a huge fan of renting my dresses for special occasions (or just because it’s the weekend) and that GlamCorner are my go-to rental destination of choice. Take my word for it, they strive to provide an excellent service, by connecting with customers and becoming part of their journey – to go above and beyond to make sure they have an amazing experience!

This year I’m pulling together some tips and key looks for each of the Melbourne Cup Carnival days… You’ll have to hustle, because the carnival dates will book out fast, so take a look below and then get your rent on asap!
