A Little Black Dress

Written about Fashion
3rd June 2013


Despite having three other wardrobes to raid, as well as my own, night out outfits are generally a one time occasion, so the stock has been used up. A weekend of events called for a new staple dress to do the rounds.

The people at Wish Want Wear offered me hire of one of their dresses* giving me free reign over the endless supply of designer stock. For the most part, the dresses available are perfect for a far more dressier occasion than hitting Newcastle, luxurious gowns and some beautifully embellished pieces. Definitely had me thinking prom, wedding or graduation ball.

I chose this Tibi dress, which is super me and super suited to Newcastle. I absolutely love the cut out in the back, dressing it up a little. I dressed it up myself with my staple Topshop heels and a Topshop claw necklace. Nothing over the top, just easy items to pair with a classic LBD.
You pay £65 for this style, it arrives freshly dry cleaned, to your door - you can choose a four or eight day hire and even have a back up size shipped, just in case.

Online ordering is always a little iffy sizing wise, which makes their refund policy perfect. Any unworn items get a full refund for the hire price - which unfortunately was the case for me! A size smaller would have definitely been more appropriate!

For those events when you've exhausted all you've got but you still want something special, you can Rent a designer dress with such good options like a back up size, refund on not wearing it and to your door service.
