Our most favourite thing about the Spring Racing Carnival is girls day out! We love getting dressed up with our best girlfriends, putting together a statement outfit that will have heads turning on the field as we sip champagne and enjoy the Spring sunshine. Of course, we want to wear something beautiful that we’ve never worn before and a statement fascinator to complete our show-stopping look. Our lovely customer Grace chose to hire our Grace and Hart ‘Embrace Floaty Midi‘ paired with our Morgan and Taylor ‘Kaisha Black Fascinator‘ for her Epsom Day ensemble.
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
I rented my dress for a girl’s day out at Epsom Day during the Spring Racing Carnival. I wanted to rent a designer dress so that I could feel put together glamorous without overspending. I got stopped by so many people to get complimented, it definitely made my day!
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
GlamCorner offered the luxury of hiring both a dress and a fascinator which meant that I could co-ordinate my whole outfit with beautiful pieces for less money. I like to have a unique and standout outfit at the races, which means that I generally only get a chance to wear it once. Hiring a dress for a single wear seems so much more sensible than purchasing an entire outfit. Plus, it made me feel even more excited for the day knowing that I got to wear a designer dress.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I rented the beautiful Embrace Floaty Midi Dress in black by Grace & Hart. Grace & Hart typically make dresses that are flattering on my hourglass shape and the cut and fabric are of fantastic quality. When looking through GlamCorner the dress stood out for me and I kept coming back to it because of its elegant lace design. I love lace, I find it so pretty and feminine which is perfect for the races. Another factor was that the races is a long event and I wanted to feel comfortable, which this dress was perfect for.
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time?
This was my first dress hire, though I’ve since booked many more! I have a busy spring period coming up and felt completely overwhelmed at the thought of shopping for an outfit for every event so I decided to rent a dress for a majority of them. I can be uneasy when online shopping because I often fall between two sizes and don’t want to be left without an outfit in the last hour. GlamCorner in particular stood out from other options with their great customer service regarding returns and the option for a back-up dress – it completely eliminated my nervousness around booking a dress I had never tried on.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
I heard about hiring dresses from a colleague last year, and was recently reminded about it via Instagram. When looking through other dress hire sites I found that GlamCorner was most appealing as it had the best range, and also looked like it had the easiest process.
How was you overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
Everything about the hire experience was fantastic; the dress came early, was in pristine condition and easy to return. The webpage is a breeze to navigate and has some great features, I love the customer reviews! I’ve found that the customer happiness team is extremely helpful via email and on the phone, I would absolutely recommend GlamCorner to my friends.
Thanks Grace! We’re so happy we were able to make the perfect dress hire possible for your Spring Carnival girls day out at Epsom Day. You looked incredible! We look forward to seeing you again soon xoxo
