our lovely customer Kristy recently chose to hire our Calais dress by Alex Perry for a Ladies Day event. Read more about her racewear dress rental experience below:
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
The event I went to was Ladies Day (a horse racing event in Townsville); what better excuse to have a day out with the girls! Being that it was Ladies Day many people attending are female, and of course, we like to stand out in a crowd, this was the reason I wanted to hire a gorgeous designer dress.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
Townsville is no big city, buying locally while great for the economy it limits the chance of you being the only one in that dress at the event you are attending. Being a race day, you want to look your absolute best, having the ability to hire a dress that isn’t available locally was extremely appealing. And yes, I was the only one there in this dress!
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
Anyone that knows me will tell you I’m always in black, being that I was going to race day I wanted to look feminine and try some colour. This gorgeous Alex Perry dress did just that for me, beautifully feminine with the lace and flattering fit, with a gorgeous pink colour for that pop. Not only was this dress beautiful on, it was extremely comfortable, and it has pockets, what woman doesn’t love pockets.
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time? For your first time renting a dress, what made you consider it?
I must have been living under a rock because I didn’t know you could hire dresses, I have loads of dresses in my wardrobe that I have only worn once, the thought of buying yet another to collect dust was turning me off going. Finding out I could hire a dress at such an amazing price was too good an option, what would it hurt to at least try right!
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
One of my amazing friends who I attended the races with introduced me to GlamCorner, and boy am I glad she did!
How was your overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
My experience from start to finish was amazing; the ease of ordering, the prompt delivery, the way the dresses were presented (packaging), and the ability to just put it in the provided postage satchel and return it without the hassle of dry-cleaning, what a dream. I would highly recommend GlamCorner, I have ever since to everyone I know. I will be a repeat customer for sure, in fact, I have hired another dress to wear for another race day this weekend!
