Those who saw my Instagram photo would know that I have posted 2 of these photos of this gorgeous dress. The designer is Catherine Deane. Those who have heard of her would know that her dress is ££££ (yes 4 digits) and am letting you in on a secret, I didn’t purchase this. Way too poor for this. I have hired it from www.Wish Want Wear.com*.
Wish Want Wear is an online Dress hire company stocking a great selection of designer clothes and accessories ready for you to hire at a much cheaper price compared to the original RRP. You can rent it for either 4 or 8 days then you return it. Everything is done through post. Simple as! They have four wonderful features that will benefit everyone. The first feature is being able to select another dress size for the same dress for you to try if you’re unsure about the fit. Then you return one. Secondly, you are able to select any 3 dresses to try on in advanced for £21.90. Thirdly, you are able to see whether the dress you want to hire is available on the dates you want. You can book it up to 3 months in advanced. Lastly, they have cleverly categorised the dresses by occasion, body type etc as well rather than the standard ones.
I actually flicked through all the pages on the website to see what they items and styles they had. At least 1 item will tickle everyone’s taste buds. I ended up going with the Catherine Deane dress as you can see. They only had a size 10 in stock and thought I must still have this dress since I was so fixated on it even if it might be slightly big on me. Chose the date I wanted it to be delivered on and it was as easy as that. The dress didn’t arrive on the day I had wanted but Wish Want Wear had informed me the day before delivery date that the person before me had returned it late and was in dry cleaning. They then informed me that they had a size 8 in stock. Now I thought, perfect! It had arrived in a box and the dress was in a clear bag. Inside the box was also a prepaid return bag for you to return the dress safe and sound. Just slip the dress in, take it to the post office and that’s it. Didn’t have to pay for it. The process was easy to follow.
I love the idea of Wish Want Wear since I actually do purchase a new dress for a special event and won’t wear it again. They do have excellent customer service and highly recommend. Do try this service out if you’re like me with the purchase a new dress, want to try new styles or want to feel like a million dollars for this “expensive” dress purchase ;). But please do return it on time so other users like myself can receive my dress on time. Do blame the previous user and not Wish Want Wear if your dress hasn’t arrived on planned date, as they do not have control over the late arrival.
Sorry for my long post. I shall stop now. :).
