Our lovely customer Pennye recently chose to hire our Grace & Hart ‘Muse Gown in Ruby Red’ for her work ball in Adelaide. This old Hollywood glamour-inspired floor length gown has a body sculpting fit with sheer mesh panels that show off the shoulders, back and waist. Read more about her work ball dress rental experience below:
1. Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
We attended a work birthday ball in Adelaide, as this was the first time we have had the opportunity to attend. I wanted to wear a dress which was stunning and made me feel amazing. This event was definitely designer dress worthy so I wanted to go all out and dress up.
2. What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
This was a one-off occasion and to spend large amounts of money on an amazing dress which I would probably only wear once is a complete waste. I had been looking at GlamCorner and following on Instagram, just waiting for the opportunity to be able to try their dresses.
3. Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I hired a Grace and Hart design – Muse Gown in Ruby Red – I looked at this gown and actually disregarded at first. But something kept drawing me back to it and so I decided to get a “try-on”. OMG it was amazing – it felt so beautiful when I put it on, so comfortable, fitted but didn’t cut. I booked it straight for my dates.
4. 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 ever renting a dress. In Adelaide we have minimal options it would appear to buy dresses or even try them on – I walked the City and googled, but nothing took my fancy. Then I remembered GlamCorner and thought I had to give this a go.
5. Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
I was attending another work function – a cocktail party, a year earlier. A friend of mine told me about GlamCorner so that’s when I started watching. The whole concept of hiring a dress online is so new to me, I wanted to think about it longer – I ended up wearing something of my own to the cocktail party at that time, but now I have tried GlamCorner – I won’t dress any other way for a work function.
6. How was your overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
I rate my experience 10/10 – both on and offline. The dresses are packaged beautifully, my dress came earlier than was scheduled and the ease and convenience of packaging and returning the dress was sooooo simple. I didn’t have to pay extra for dry cleaning or take to the dry cleaners after – just into the provided express post bag and straight into a post box – So easy so simple!!!
I have had 2-3 friends ask me about my dress and they were shocked when I said I hired it! I have encouraged them to consider GC for their next event and this will be my only way I get my dresses for functions in the future now!!
Thanks for sharing your story Pennye! You looked absolutely stunning! 🙂 We’re so happy we were able to help you feel and look amazing on your special day in the perfect work ball gown!
