Elite Couture

I had the amazing opportunity to write a post for Elite
Couture last week. I chose to do a post on a Mary Katrantzou dress and how to
style it with one of Elite Couture’s Chanel bags. You can find my post here.

If you don’t already know about them, Elite Couture is the
only UK based company that allows you to hire designer handbags. What an
amazing idea! I don’t know about you, but there is no way I’d be able to afford
the likes of Mulberry and Alexander McQueen, especially if it’s only for a one
off event. So two years ago, with this in mind, Elite Couture was born. It is
such a good idea if you are going to an event, but don’t want to splash your
cash on an expensive bag you may only wear that once, or if you just want to
have a completely different and amazing bag every time you go somewhere. Elite
Couture have a selection of handbags for every occasion from some of the world’s
leading fashion houses, this can mean that every time you are at a special
event you can have a beautiful new bag and not have it on your conscience that
you have spent too much! If you are thinking about hiring one of Elite Couture’s
bags and are unsure of what will look best, you can always contact them and they
will be happy to help choose bags for you!

Here are my favourites from their new collection:

The Chanel clutch is my favourite, this is the bag that I wrote about on my blog post for them as I think
can be the most versatile. Since you can have up to 28 days you have time to
wear the bag for any occasions you have in that space of time. This bag in
particular can be worn casually in day to day outfits, formally or something in
between.The Chanel 2.55 is available to hire for one week at £201 and two weeks at £305.

Here is an example of the bag styled in a day to day look:

Jumper: River Island, £35
Skirt: Oasis, £75
Boots: Steve Madden, £110
Coat: Urban Outfitters, £135
Necklace: Zara, £19.99

Here is an example of the bag being styled in a formal look: 

Dress: Miss Selfridge, £69
Shoes: Carvela Kurt Geiger, £140
Necklace: Topshop, £12.50
