I was recently contacted by the lovely girls over at Wish Want Wear, asking if I would like to review their service in exchange for a free hire of one of their designer dresses. Now, annoyingly, I had just had my graduation ball and ceremony (which I already had dresses for...), so unfortunately I did not have a fancy event to go to. Nevertheless, being a self-confessed lover of fashion, particularly dresses, (do I even wear anything else?!) who could pass on such an opportunity?!
Wish Want Wearare unique. They are the UK’s leading designer dress hire company, working with a whole range of designers (Temperley London, Cavalli, Missoni, and Herve Leger) to make their clothes accessible to girls all over the country, at a fraction of the price. You simply hire a designer dress, select the date you want to wear it, feel fabulous all night long, and then return it in the post when you’re done. Wish Want Wear even take care of the dry cleaning and insurance, so no worries if you have one too many glasses of wine...
The online company was started by three girls, who like most women, love fashion, especially designer clothing. However, after desperately lusting over numerous items, they realised their student budgets would not allow them to buy the clothes they really want to own. From this, 'WWW' was born, allowing us girls to hire out and wear any designer dress we wanted, without having to remortgage our homes. I think this is a genius idea, because lets face it, most of us only wear our ‘special occasion’ dresses once, and then leave them to collect dust in our wardrobes, never to be worn again... (Guilty!!).
Yes, this post is sponsored, however I believe a blogger should always give a true account of every experience they have with a brand. My experience of 'WWW' is a fantastic one, and the service I received was great. Since I already owned a few ball gowns, I decided to opt for a classic glitzy cocktail dress instead. The website had a great range of dresses, suitable for every occasion, ranging from formal prom to casual drinks with the girls. I picked my dress online, it arrived on the day I selected and I even received a text from the delivery man letting me know it was on it’s way. I was also sent two dress sizes, to guarantee the dress would fit (Perfect for me as I am sometimes between sizes, I swear I’m a UK size 9).
This sparkling number is by designer brand Scala and only £45 to hire for a whole weekend. I found the sizing of the dress to be very generous, and although I am wearing a size 8, it was still quite big. I think sizing with designers dresses completely depends on the brand and it can sometimes be a hit or miss. Although slightly big, I loved wearing this dress and can safely say I was gutted when it was time to return. This is a perfect dress to wear if you want to stand, or even shine, out of the crowd and will definitely get you noticed!
