We all love birthday parties as a great excuse to get dressed up and dance the night away with our closest friends. Whether it’s a friends birthday or your own birthday party it’s a special once a year occasion that deserves special care when planning your birthday party outfit! Obviously, the birthday girl is the centre of attention and finding a gorgeous birthday party dress that hugs your body in all the right places and has heads turning all night is essential. It’s not every day your friends come together simply to celebrate you! Our beautiful Brisbane based customer Danni shares her experience of hiring our amazing Thurley ‘Love Lost Dress’ in red for her birthday party.
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
My special occasion was my 26th birthday. I’ve had a hectic and jam-packed year and I wanted to really take the opportunity to celebrate me and put the effort into feeling and looking my best for my day. I knew wearing a knock-out dress would make me feel sparkly and glam and would add to the fun of my special day.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
Honestly, I’ve had such a busy few months with a lot to juggle and as a lot of women do, I left the planning and organising for myself to the last minute. I really wanted to feel and look amazing for my birthday, but had left myself really time poor to find the perfect outfit. I’ve looked at GlamCorner’s range before so I knew they keep the best collection of up-to-date designer dresses and offer next day delivery to Brisbane which would streamline my search, saving me time, hassle and money in the process.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I chose the Thurley Love Lost dress in Red. Red is such a “wow” colour to me – it always makes me feel ladylike and incredibly glamorous and I think this dress is the perfect summer combination for when you want to look like a standout without being too over-the-top or overdressed for the occasion. It was the head-turner I was hoping it to be, while still allowing me to feel fun, flirty and relaxed during the day.
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time?
I have before for a few big occasions, but I’d always remembered the process being a little anxiety-inducing and full of angst when I’d spent what was still a decent amount of money and found the dress just didn’t live up to my expectations or fit me properly. As a size 6 with a fuller bust, it can sometimes be a bit of a risk ordering online, so I was really happy with the option to hire a backup for $15 – it saved me a lot of worrying and fortunately the dress I had my heart set on was true to size and exceeded my expectations.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
I had been searching for a Brisbane event a few months ago and was so impressed by the size and quality of the range of designers, sizes, looks and availability GlamCorner provided. I almost thought it was too good to be true. The market seems a little flooded at the moment with designer rentals, not all of which give you a sense of trust and ease about ordering from them, but GlamCorner was one I had bookmarked months ago and from my experience with them for my birthday event, I really think they stand head and shoulders above the competition in every possible way.
How was you overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
I’m really impressed and will definitely be back, keeping GlamCorner at the forefront of my outfit planning for future occasions. I would 100% recommend the service to my girlfriends, and have already sung your praises to the friends that attended my birthday.
Thanks Danni! We’re so happy we were able to make the perfect dress hire for your birthday party possible for you. You looked gorgeous! We look forward to seeing you again soon xoxo
