how to attend a fit-it day:

 1. please RSVP with your name + contact number here. this is for security reasons, you will not be allowed into the showroom unless you have RSVP'd

2. come anytime between 10am - 6pm

3. this will not be a solo appointment but rather an SR shop experience, so you may be sharing the space with other rotators 

FAQ: can i reserve an item for a fit-it day?

sadly not! paid rentals take preference over try-ons, so come with an open mind and have a browse of what's on offer - we take pride in our ever-growing wardrobe. 

are you outside CPT? we offer a fit guarantee which allows you to receive a gift-card to the value of your rental* should it arrive and not fit. please note this only applies if you notify us within 4 hours of receiving your rental

Standout Graduate Look

Recently graduated (Internationally Accredited Makeup Artist) and chose this beauty from House of CB. A far cry from their satin/silk range, which I wore to a wedding earlier in 2022, but a winner for a more daring, Kim K (glove inspired) look. The fit is slightly smaller than your normal medium, however, it is a bodycon silhouette so is likely true to size.
My cup size is a 36C and it was slightly small, but not uncomfortable. I adjusted slightly every now and again.
The gloves are not detachable but I committed to the look so was careful enough to keep them on the entire evening.
I paired it with black studded stilettos to finish off the look.
Thank you again SR. I hope more fashionista's push the boundaries a little with this little number 😍
