Here we are - the first designer dress I've ever worn! I've got nothing against designer pieces - I just can't afford them. Well, I can't afford to buy them... Wish Want Wear contacted me about their service, which offers online dresses to hire to those of us who can't afford to own that designer number or maybe tend to wear a dress once anyway. I fit into both categories here. I'm definitely not willing to fork out a few hundred quid on a dress, plus I'm bit funny about wearing dresses more than once to big occasions (shame on me, but I think most of you will feel similarly!).
I attended a wedding reception last week, the perfect opportunity for me to give hiring a dress a go. I chose this dress by Tibi as the skater style is ideal for food babies and alcohol consumption and the exposed back was a little bit adventurous for me, so I was seriously excited for it to arrive. As expected, the quality of the dress was super. I styled it with black and gold accessories to keep things simple. I find it pretty hilarious that I wore a £410 dress with some Primark and eBay accessories! But the dress makes the outfit seem rather special. This dress costs £65 to hire for 4 days. I think that's super for graduation, prom or any other fancy do. Plus, there's very little chance that anyone else will be wearing the same dress as you - bonus! And no faffing with dry cleaning (or finding space for it in your wardrobe), you just post the dress back after you've worn it.
Now for the exciting part - Wish Want Wear have given me the chance to let one of you hire any dress of your choice from their selection for free! Wahoooo! The season of graduations and proms is approaching, so this is such a fab chance for one of you to don a Cavalli, Missoni or even Temperley dress for nothing! Or, you could just wear it to walk the dog and pretend to be one of the Made in Chelsea lot for 4 days, equally cool. Just enter using the Rafflecopter entry form below :)
