Still looking for that perfect holiday party dress? Check out these Tampa Bay area shops



10056427.jpgIt's almost Christmas! It's almost 2013! Let's parrrrrrrrrrrrrr-tay. 


What are we going wear? And more importantly, how will we pay for it (so say our battered wallets)?

Luckily, our colleague Laura Reiley has solutions for both those dilemmas in a piece today in our "Here's the Deal," section.

It's all about finding the perfect party dress at area consignment and rental shops - which we here at Deal Divas whole-heartedly support. 

Laura tells us about Lending Luxury, a Tampa shop started in 2010 by a pair of friends who loved the idea of renting rather than buying. Most dresses at their shop, at 2102 W Platt St., go for between $50-$110 -- and that includes shipping and cleaning fees. 

Laura also gives us the scoop on some of the nicer consignment shops around - Agape Chic Boutique in Brandon, Couture Shoez in Tampa and Couture Closet, which is appointment-only. 

Check out the whole story here. You won't be disappointed!
