Valentine's Day is a special time that secretly every girl loves to dress up and feel special and romantic for. Hiring a designer dress for Valentine's can add a extra little bit of spice, drama and fun to this night dedicated to romance. Our super-cute customer Bonnie shares with us how renting a dress from GC helped her to feel amazing and took some of the nerves out of going on a Valentine's date with her new partner:
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
I was asked to go on a Valentine's date this year and I was super excited and nervous about it. I didn't want to disappoint with a regular outfit and so, I explored a different option. Lucky I did because I managed to come across GlamCorner and found the cutest (yet sexy) little designer outfit, at a fraction of the cost of buying it at retail price. I always loved Alice McCall and this was a perfect way to wear the designer I love and save some money too.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
I think secretly every girl loves Valentine's Day, especially when asked out by a new partner. I knew the venue I was going to that night was a nice, glamorous location and so looking my best was top priority. Renting a dress appealed to me because I can wear something new, look good in it for the occasion and know the outfit will not be stashed away forgotten in my closet.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I chose the Alice McCall Gypsy Eye Playsuit in Blush because she is one my favourite designers and I absolutely ADORE her! When I found out I can hire her pieces I was over the moon! Her designs really suited my body shape and I was safe knowing the playsuit would look amazing on.
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 not my first time renting with GlamCorner. For my first time, I rented a dress for my Christmas Work function late last year but unfortunately it did not fit me. Even though that was the case, I was not disheartened because GC's staff were super helpful and friendly while helping me through my first rental experience. I felt really looked after (better then any retail experience you get nowadays!) and they also offered me a refund for the dress that didn't fit. Because of this I decided to come back and try again and this time it was with great success! Thank you GC!
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
I first found out about dress rentals from my friend. She would hire Camilla for parties and outings and always looked a million dollars (without spending a million dollars!) After knowing about this service, I researched into it and found GlamCorner and was surprised at the huge collection of dresses, gowns and accessories for rental. I remember it was like Christmas day for me, browsing through the beautiful dresses and wishing there was an occasion (or an excuse) to rent one.
How was your overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
I think my answer above says it all! GC's staff was so helpful with the process. No question was ever too hard to answer, and the rental procedure was painless. The parcel wasn't in a crinkled express post bag, it was beautifully wrapped and cared for. I am not ashamed to tell friends and family my gorgeous outfit is a rental and I will continue to promote GlamCorner to everyone wanting to look fabulous for a special occasion. GC has great customer service and it's rare these days to come across. I think this is what makes me loyal to GC.Thanks so much Bonnie, that's such a lovely story and we're so glad we were able to help make this special occasion even more special for you! We're also so happy to hear how much of an avid supported of the dress rental concept you've become and can't wait to see you again soon :) xx
