You can now hire your favourite Gucci bag in Adelaide

South Australian ladies, rejoice!

When we tell somebody that we're from Adelaide, it is often met with a sympathetic smile and then of course the question, 'when are you planning to move?'

Victorian's think we're one step behind other states, and Queenslanders would never holiday here. Sure, we have some great restaurants and our festivals rock socks, but when it comes to luxury shopping, well a flight to Melbourne is only 45 minutes away.

Infact, even though alot of people liken our city to Perth, Adelaide is one of the only capital cities in Australia that there are no Gucci, Prada, Chanel, or Louis Vuitton stores. We did just get a Zara a few years ago though.

Well, South Australian high end fashion lovers, fear no more. Thanks to one clever lady, Melissa Barnes, who has decided to start renting out her luxury bags to the general public of South Australia. 

The mother of two boys, and part time teacher, began her fashion fashion career in Darwin six years ago, when she started making her own millinery. Half a decade later, Barnes has taken part in many Fashions on the Field competitions, and found herself with a deliciously large collection of high end bags and fascinators. 

Melissa Barnes, we bow down to you.
