So, you’ve seen a dress on the runway that you’re desperate to get your hands on, but buying it means giving up your home and/or dignity for at least three months, so you resist, and spend your days instead dreaming of the dress that should be draped around your derriere.

Sound familiar? It’s a scenario that happens all too often if you ask us, but you’ll be pleased to hear there is a solution.

What if you were able to borrow that dress and return it when you’re done without breaking the bank? Say hello to Girl Meets Dress – your virtual best friend with a wardrobe to die for.

With hundreds of this season’s hottest dresses from the hautest designers – try Prada, Proenza Schouler and Preen – the designer rental site gives you the chance to dress like your dreams have drawn from as little as £39 – and frankly, it’s the most ingenious way to shop right now.

Here’s how it works:

1. You borrow a dress
2. You party
3. You return it

And at a fraction of the original cost, you’ll have plenty of change left for next week’s treat. Like we said, ingenious (and let’s face it, all the best dressed stars borrow their frocks for the red carpet anyway).

An ideal solution to those tricky formal occasions and a new way to look perfect? We’re sold.

Visit Girl Meets Dress here – just don’t blame us if your wardrobe’s full of deliveries by the weekend.
