A farewell dinner is an extra special occasion to celebrate the end of an era and toast to a bright future, and dressing to impress is essential! Our lovely Melbourne based customer Molly hired our Rodeo Show ‘Amity Dress’, a classy cocktail number in blue lace, for her graduation farewell dinner and here she shares her experience and why renting a dress is a great way to look fabulous and save money!
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
I attended a farewell dinner for all of the university students graduating at the residential college in Melbourne that I work for and cocktail dresses are normally worn. I wanted to wear a spring dress that was not a little black dress or something I would normally wear. When I dress up, I like to dress well and a designer dress does just that.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
Renting a dress for the farewell dinner was appropriate because I knew no one else would have the same dress nor did I have a dress for the occasion. One of the big reasons I rent dresses is because I don’t want to buy a dress I would only wear once or twice. I am still new to Australia and am always moving around; buying a dress I would rarely wear just to move around with me doesn’t sound appealing. With renting, I can wear multiple good quality dresses for various occasions without having to expand my wardrobe too much.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
The dress I wore was the Amity Dress by Rodeo Show
. I love the cut of the dress and the high neck line because that looks flattering on me. I think this is a perfect spring dress because of the lace and the colours. The nude lining also was appealing because I knew the dress wouldn’t be see-through. This dress was classy and elegant for the occasion without being overdressed.
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time?
I have only rented dresses from GlamCorner and before moving here, I never rented dresses before. For my work, I attend multiple functions throughout the year and it is nice to have a different dress for every occasion. This way I don’t spend a fortune on a good quality dress.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
When I first was looking to rent a dress I Googled dress rentals in Melbourne and the GlamCorner site came up. I looked over the site and was impressed with the different dresses you have as well as the extensive collection. After experiencing how easy it is to rent from you and always receiving an amazing designer dress, I will rent dresses from you for a long time! Renting from GlamCorner removes the hassle of shopping for dresses and worrying about when the dress will be worn again.
How was you overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
Yes, I would highly recommend GC to my friends and I already have! Anytime someone asks where I got the dress I tell them GC. Not a lot of young women know about renting dresses which is a shame because it is economically the smartest choice. I have not had a problem with GC and I have rented so many dresses from them! They keep me coming back.
Thanks Molly! We’re so happy we were able to make the perfect dress hire possible for your gorgeous farewell dinner outfit. You looked amazing! We look forward to seeing you again soon xoxo
