A day at the races is a great excuse to get all dolled up in your favourite designer dress and wow the crowd. With Spring in full bloom and racing season in full swing it’s time to start planning your next show-stopping race day outfit! Be inspired by our Spring Races Edit and take notes from our lovely customers such as our beautiful Townsville based customer Lisa who hired our Talulah ‘Elodie Midi Dress‘ for her day at the Townsville races. Read her story below!
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
The beauty of hiring a gown is that any occasion then becomes special. I hired the dress simply for the Townsville Amateur Race day. With designer dresses that are not only stunning but affordable, it didn’t seem logical to spend a small fortune on buying something I didn’t love nearly as much and would near wear again.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
Race days are an occasion for ladies to put their most elegant, classy and most fashionable foot forward. Every girl would agree, most go to these events to not just view the horses but for the incredible fashions that make their way around the fields. For me, when I know I am wearing quality garments made by the most creative designers it sets the tone for the occasion.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
The Elodie Midi Dress designed by Talulah was the dress I opted to wear to the race day. The unspoken race day fashion rules for a typically classy and lady like affair denoted that not too much should be on display. The midi length of the dress and the asymmetric folds across the shoulder made me feel classic and elegant while the backless detail and spit gave it that certain je ne sais quoi to add just the right amount of allure.
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time?
I have rented from GlamCorner multiple times now and am quite convinced I will never need to buy for an event again. The little rush of excitement when I receive the dress in the mail, the look on my partners face, the way I feel in the dresses and the shear convenience of it all have me sold on the brilliant concept. Admittedly at first I was sceptical of designer sizing but the size charts and body shape recommendations on the website are excellent indicators as I am yet to have an ill-fitting dress.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
I stumbled across GlamCorner in a random internet search to hunt down a designer dress I had tried, but needed a smaller size in while shopping with some friends. Turns out the dress I was originally to buy was trumped by an array of others a fraction of the price on the website. That is when I first discovered the brilliance of GlamCorner and dress hire.
How was you overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
I have and will undoubtedly continue to recommend all of my friends to take advantage of GlamCorner for any event, big or small. Dealing with the GlamCorner team online and off has been easy like a Sunday morning. I get regular notifications on delivery and shipping, hand written notes, newest offers and love how they even provide the return parcel package. As Carrie Bradshaw would say, “A wise woman skips the stock market and invests in her closet!” Now ladies can invest in quality without the three digit price tags.
Thanks Lisa! We’re so happy we were able to help you find the perfect dress for your day at the races. You looked fabulous! We look forward to seeing you again soon xoxo
