Forget the high-street - head online to HIRESTREET!
I had a special event coming up where I needed (and wanted) to wear a lovely dress to live up to my boyfriends dashing Tuxedo :P As much as I love second hand, I still like to do it with class: dress up in ‘new’ (to me) outfits and be super feminine! I am very girly - that will never change! But I can be girly and considerate too!
With my current training, I really didn’t have the time to be running around charity shops trying on outfits. I do love using apps like Vinted, but unfortunately sellers are not always reliable when it comes to receiving your item within a specific time frame.
The problem was, this was an occasion where it’s likely to be a one off dress that I would find tricky to wear time and time again, so I would need to resell it, or give it away after anyway!
This led me to look into hiring an outfit instead! I had heard about it before, but I had not yet experienced it. With just one week to go, I thought it was a great opportunity to give it a try! I searched UK only because I wanted the delivery to be fast, and came across this website:
Rent outfits to save money, save valuable wardrobe space and save the planet.
Looking for a new outfit? If you know you are only going to wear it once then why not rent outfits from your favourite high street brands including ASOS, Topshop, Missguided Zara, French Connection and many many more. We have hundreds of dresses, jumpsuits, playsuits and co-ords for you to choose from. From party pieces to holiday hotties find something too good to wear again in our fabulous selection. All outfits are available for 10 days, simply filter for your size, choose your favourite, select your event date and add to cart. You don’t even have to worry about the cleaning as we do that for you. We are constantly expanding our range of outfits!
It couldn't have been more perfect!
I took a little time to browse the dresses (there are so many options!) and it wasn’t long until I found one that I loved and looked perfect for the occasion! #yay!
So this dress is £70 on the high-street, but it was only £15 at HIRESTREET
I was so lucky, it was going to be delivered on the Friday, in perfect time for the event on Saturday. However with this being my first time using this website, I was slightly concerned that it was not going to turn up on time, I was also worried that it may not actually fit me well and I would be left outfitless with one day to go! #fingerscrossed!
I kept my faith and it arrived Friday afternoon, nicely packed with simple instructions, and fit perfectly! #phew!!!
I had such a lush evening that for once I forgot to take many photos!!! (I know… shocking!)
This gave me a great excuse to pop it on again and take some snaps! (always time for a quick shoot :D)
Making the most of it!
Roeco Fashion was attending a charity pamper evening on the following Friday (blog post to come) and I still had time with my dress before I had to return it (in the prepaid bag), so I suddenly thought why not wear it again, seen as it was so appropriate to represent my brand!
This time I dressed it down with black tights, heeled boots and a black cardi…
The festive season is coming! If you need a dress for a Christmas party; a Christmas day outfit; something to wear to a boxing day ball; or even to start the new year wearing something very special, I highly recommend checking out this website (I know this one is reliable, but there are also lots when you google hire a dress!)
Let’s face it, Christmas is expensive enough without having to splash out on endless new outfits. That’s why renting is so sensible at this time of year. What’s more, it’s the perfect solution when you have multiple events in one week – order more than one item but only pay one rental fee.
Rent outfits - save money - and save the planet.
It makes total sense to me and in my experience it is hassle free!
Let me know if you have experiences using any similar websites! #sharingiscaring #togetherletshelptheworld!
