|TIBI lucy lace dress* c/o Wish Want Wear // & OTHER STORIES clutch // PRIMARK necklace // TOPSHOP heels|
I was recently contacted by the lovely people over at Wish Want Wear asking if I would like to review their service in exchange for a free hire of one of their available dresses. Now, I unfortunately didn't have anywhere to actually wear any of their beautiful dresses but what kind of girl would pass up the chance to have a designer dress in her possession?! Definitely not me. Even if it was just for a few days...
Since I didn't have anywhere to go I thought asking for a ball gown might be a bit ridiculous so I instead opted for this gorgeous Tibi dress. I was immediately drawn to it on the site and, although I thought it might look a bit mature, I went for it anyway. I think the dress is so beautiful and would be the absolute perfect dress for a wedding. It's £920 RRP but you can hire it for up to 8 days for only £110. I really wish I'd hired a dress from here for my school leaver's dance rather than having shelled out for one I'll probably never wear again anyway. Le sigh.
The service I received was absolutely great. You can choose the exact date you want your dress to arrive and you can also choose 2 sizes of the dress to ensure that you don't receive it and then it doesn't fit. Since I'm living at home at the moment (middle of nowhere) I received a call the day before my dress was meant to arrive to tell me that unfortunately my dress wouldn't arrive for 2 days rather than the promised 1. Although I expected this, it wouldn't have been very good if I'd needed the dress for the day I ordered it for. I'd say just bare that in mind if next day delivery is like a foreign concept where you live! It was really good that they actually personally called me though rather than just not bothering which many companies do - and I do understand that they didn't know it wouldn't arrive on time until the courier told them when they came to pick it up. You also have a free special delivery returns sticker so you can keep it right up until the day before it has to go back - even if you do live in the sticks!
Overall, I thought the service I received from Wish Want Wear was brilliant and I will definitely be hiring designer dresses and accessories from them in the future when I have a special event coming up.
Have you ever hired from Wish Want Wear? What do you think of my dress choice?
