Our lovely Sydney based customer Sophie recently attended her friend’s engagement party and for the special occasion she chose to hire our Talulah ‘Without You Midi‘, a gorgeous off the shoulder number in a dusky rose. Read more about her rental experience below:
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
My best friend’s engagement party was a very special occasion and every special occasion deserves a special dress! The party was held at her beautiful house by the beach in the afternoon with stunning decor surrounded by friends and family. I was looking for a statement piece that would shine in photos but not break the bank- enter GlamCorner.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
With wedding season in full swing its hard to justify a new outfit for every occasion. I knew I was after a memorable dress but this brings the problem that you won’t wear the dress again anytime soon. Renting for special occasions has a huge appeal for this reason, the options seem endless!
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I wore a coral pink number from Talulah called “Without You Midi“, a dress so far out of the comfort zone for a girl who only wears black. I took full advantage of the “back up dress” option offered by GlamCorner and selected a black Alice McCall playsuit to be safe. The reason I decided to give the “Without You Midi” a try was really down to this, I knew if it didn’t work that I would have a back-up. When the outfits arrived, photos were circulated to the girl gang and the coral was a clear winner. The colour, the bold shape- it was EVERYTHING I wanted in a statement dress.
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 rental experience and I have to say, I’m hooked! I was reassured by my long-time-renter friends that the dress quality was great and they weren’t wrong. My main reason for considering rental as opposed to purchase in the first place was budgetary. When buying a special dress I will usually go with something simple and monochrome for versatility (also can’t get enough of black), so it was nice to open up the options by renting.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
GlamCorner was recommended to me by a professional stylist pal who frequently uses their services. I thought- if its good enough for the red carpet, it must be pretty good!
How was your overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
My experience was great, I’ll definitely be using GlamCorner for the upcoming wedding season! From the abundance of fit and style information online, to the lovely packaging it arrived in, to the clean beautiful dress itself – the experience was 10/10 from start to finish. Thanks GC!
Thanks Sophie! You look amazing! We’re so glad we could help you find the perfect dress for your special engagement party occasion in Sydney, NSW. We look forward to seeing you again soon xx
