Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
With 7 weddings in 2017 (and all on the same side of the family), I knew that the only way I would be able to afford a new dress for each wedding in Melbourne was to hire. I ended up hiring three dresses this year alone from Glam Corner and am so thankful. I was able to wear dresses from beautiful designers that I would never have brought brand new dresses from. I have developed a love for Elle Zeitoune and Thurley dresses. I often try them on in different shops and then quickly pop onto the GlamCorner website to see if they’re available… sneaky, I know?! I have recently lost some weight too and it felt amazing to have the confidence to wear some of these gorgeous dresses for the first time this year.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
As mentioned, with 7 weddings this year alone (and 1 engagement and 2 christenings), renting dresses was the best way for me to wear a different dress for every occasion this year. I wore the Elle Zeitoune ‘Jayce’ dress in black for a wedding in Feburary, the Thurley ‘Scarlett’ dress for the church of my brother’s wedding (this one is my FAVOURITE) in August and then I also feel in love with the Thurley ‘Chameleon’ dress for another wedding in December – I’ve never worn yellow before but knew I couldn’t go wrong with a yellow Thurley dress.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I have fallen in love with Thurley! A designer I didn’t know about until I began renting with GlamCorner. I went into a Thurley shop in Armadale, Melbourne and tried on so many gorgeous dresses! Buying them was not an option but knew GlamCorner was the way to go. I love Thurley’s lace! I love how it has the sheer look too making the dress look see through in parts. I also love the simple cut outs around the shoulders and waist that shows off my best bits. I always try to hide my ‘ugly bits’ like my always-bloated stomach and my arms!
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 third time renting with GlamCorner this year and overall, GlamCorner was the first company I have ever rented dresses from. It began after I had tried on the Elle Zeitoune dress at a boutique back in January. I loved the dress so much but couldn’t justify the cost of the dress for just one event. I simple typed the name of the dress on a google search and violah… GlamCorner was the second search that came up for the dress (the actual Elle Zeitoune site was the first). I thought it was an amazing idea because I knew my size, the cost to hire was great and I did get free postage on my first hire. I haven’t stopped recommending Glam Corner to so many friends and family now!
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
I discovered GlamCorner really easily. I simply googled the name of the dress I was looking for and GlamCorner’s website was the second search (after the designer’s site of course). I did look at other dress hire sites as I am a very thorough person, and GlamCorner came out on top by far. Other sites expected those who hired to dry clean themselves, overcharged for postage and didn’t have as many positive reviews as GlamCorner did. I love how GlamCorner emails out reviews regularly and also informs customers of new dresses to hire. It keeps me looking on the site regularly and being aware of all the gorgeous dresses that I can hire in the future.
How was your overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
I am forever recommending GlamCorner to everyone I know now. Even family and friends from all over Australia are hiring from GlamCorner now. I love the ease of going online, always finding the dress I want, a good amount of time for hire (a 4 day hire is perfect for me), always receiving the dress more than two days before my event (I received my last dress more than a week earlier!) and finally, popping the dress straight into a satchel and then into a yellow postbox near home. I wish I had found Glam Corner a long time ago! I’ve spent so much on dresses for the hundreds of weddings, engagements and christenings that I’ve been to over the past few years that are currently collecting dust in my spare-room wardrobe. Love, love, love GlamCorner, thank you for making things a lot easier when it comes to ‘getting all dressed up’!
Thanks for sharing your story Stephanie! We are so happy that we were able to help you find the perfect dress for all the events you attended! You looked absolutely stunning.
