Our lovely Sydney based customer Jesse recently celebrated her 26th birthday in style by throwing a birthday party at Fort Denison overlooking the gorgeous Sydney harbour! For the special occasion Jesse chose to hire our Alice McCall ‘Are You Ready Girl Mini Dress’ in Amber, crafted from stunning lace with playful tassel fringing on the flared sleeves and hemline.

Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
It was my 26th birthday; I think it’s always nice to dress up for your birthday… it only comes around once a year!
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
I love birthdays in general, however this one was extra special as it was also my one year of living in Sydney anniversary! We had made a booking at the iconic Fort Denison restaurant overlooking Sydney’s beautiful harbour, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House so I thought I’d indulge a little.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I couldn’t go past the Alice McCall ‘Are You Ready Girl Mini Dress’ in Amber. I’ve worn Alice McCall before and I love her pieces. I’d describe this dress as elegant with flare, and I wanted something a little different and fun for the occasion!
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 really my first time ordering a rental dress! I’ve always paid the money and bought the designer dress outright, but would only get 1-2 wears max out of it! I think it’s important to support Australian designers and they are the brands I like to wear, however affordability wise, it can become quite unattainable if you’ve got a different event each week. This way you can appreciate, support and wear a good Australian designer regardless of your situation.
Tell us how you first discovered GlamCorner?
My girlfriend religiously orders through GC and highly recommended them. I now know why!
How was your overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
Excellent! The website was easy to navigate, and I was so impressed with the GC teams efficiency in communicating to me when my order was processed, dispatched and I even got a reminder text to send it back! The dress was in excellent condition on arrival and GC make it very easy to send back too. The dress I ordered fit perfectly, but the back-up dress system is a safety net for sure, (we’ve all done the mad dash before an event because plan A has fallen through :P) I have already started recommending GC to my girl friends, including my best friend who rented a gorgeous Bronx and Banco gown for the 2017 Logies a couple of weeks ago, she looked beautiful! Thanks again GC!
Thanks for sharing your story Jesse! You looked incredible ???? We’re so happy we were able to help you feel and look amazing on your special day in Sydney in the perfect birthday party dress. We look forward to seeing you again soon! xo
