Girl Meets Dress – Rent a Dress?

The shopping experience and the purchase of a fabulous dress can give you such a high but would you feel just as happy hiring a dress? Part of me likes the idea of hiring a dress. Maybe you’re going to a special event and you know you’ll wear the dress only once, like most celebrities – they only wear a dress once to an event. So maybe hiring a dress is shopping like a celebrity?  Men have been hiring tuxedos for many many years so why can’t a women rent a dress?

 At Girl Meets Dress you can hire a Jasmine de Milo dress for £176.00  (originally £579) or a Philip Lim silk dress with gold lame for £145 (originally £490) for a 2-night rental, which in includes dry cleaning. If you’re hesitant about the fit of your dress don’t worry as you have 2 hours from the time the courier arrives at your door and you’ve signed for the package to notify Girl Meets Dress and you can return or exchange the dress. I like the idea and the concept but I’m not sure. I like to own my clothes as they all carry memories for me and I wear all my dresses more than once. Would you rent a dress?








Philip Lim- £145 (originally £490)  Suzannah -£74.00 (originally £350) Marni – £193.00 (originally £907)

    not for that price! to be honest, i’d rather buy a dress from a slightly lower price bracket… there are so very many beautiful things to spend 150-200 quid on, especially a dress you’ll only have for two days which is only worth twice as much as the rental! at those prices the idea won’t fly… that’s my opinion anyway.

    I think this idea is actually really great! I have not been a big fan of some of the other types of renting pieces such as “Bag Borrow or Steal” because those things are something you can use everyday. I am a person who never likes to wear the exact same outfit twice, i always change the jewelry or shoes to tweak it just a little. Esp for formal occasions it would be great to have a fab dress and not have to worry about wearing it again and not feel guilty that you spent a few thousand pounds!
