Oscar Worthy Golden Gowns

The Oscars countdown is on, so we’re getting into the award ceremony spirit with a nostalgic trip down a red carpet lined memory lane. 2012 was the year when stars from Stacy Keibler to Meryl Streep shone in gorgeous golden gowns.

 

If only we could all get a dose of good old Hollywood glamour. I don’t know about you but at SG HQ we’d settle for a glamorous new dress.

Well, you can stop daydreaming because when it comes to Oscar worthy dresses there are some great gold options out there – and you can get the real deal without a blockbuster budget. Here’s how..

1. Rent It: If you’ve seen it on the red carpet, sourced it in a designer boutique and tried to hide your expression of shock at the number of zeros on the price tag, you need to take a look at Girl Meets Dress. Find your dream dress, wear it then send it back – it really is as easy as that, and it costs a fraction of the price you’d pay for a designer dress.

2. Hit the Outlets: If you can’t bear the thought of being parted from your dream designer dress, outlets are a great place to find past season stock with amazing savings. If there isn’t store near you, just look at the discounted offerings available online at THE OUTNET.

3. Search SalesGossip: Designer labels have sales too. Just look at the listings for women’s dresses on SalesGossip.
