Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
For my best friends 21st birthday party I wanted to wear a statement piece that was different to what I’d normally wear. I really love the brand Self Portrait, however, due to the heavy price tag attached to their clothing I looked for alternative avenues, such as GlamCorner – A cheap and affordable avenue to hire designer dresses for any special occasion.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
The 21st birthday party dress code was formal cocktail so I wanted a dress that was authentic and fit with the theme. The beauty of GlamCorner is that you can see the dresses on the models and read the attached reviews to get a greater feel for the dress and if it is the right choice for you. The affordability of renting was also a massive bonus for me as the dress I wanted was around $800 to buy outright and only $169 to hire.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I chose the Self Portrait Tiered Guipure Lace Mini Dress in Black. I ordered the size 8 (which is my normal size) and it fit like a glove. I love the originality of Self Portrait and the intricate detail of all their dresses. I chose this dress because I was fascinated by it and wanted to wear something authentic.
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time? For your first time renting a dress, what made you consider it?
This was my first time hiring a dress – I was very unsure as I always prefer to try on dresses before I buy them. However, after reading the reviews on the dress saying it was “true to size”, I felt more at ease with pursuing the hire. The dress I wore is a real statement piece and is one that I’d wear once and leave in the cupboard just to collect dust. I went through with the hire because of this reason and the heavy price it was to buy outright, making hiring a much more appealing choice.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
I first discovered GlamCorner through word of mouth. A couple of my girlfriends had rented dresses through the service and had nothing but positive things to say about it. When I decided to hire a dress for the 21st birthday party it was the first rental site I visited and upon comparing prices to other hire sites, I found GlamCorner to be the most reasonable.
How was your overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with GlamCorner. I ordered my dress and it came the very next day with plenty of time before the actual event. In that sense GlamCorner is very efficient. The dress came in perfect condition and fit like a glove – I honestly could not fault the service. The interaction they have with you is very personable too, they ensured that your experience with them was positive and are very eager to hear any feedback to improve their services. I will definitely be booking through GlamCorner again due to their reliable and quality service.
Thanks Sophie! You look beautiful! We’re so glad we could help you find the perfect dress for your best friends 21st birthday party in Wollongong. We look forward to seeing you again soon xx
