Best Deal Ever (or How I Got a £415 Dress for £65)

I was tempted to keep this little secret to myself.  But it is too good not to share.
Last weekend I went to a fundraiser for my daughter's school in this gorgeous dress.  And the best part:  I only paid £65 for it.

The secret?
Wish, Want, Wear.
It's an online dress hire company in London.  Here's how it works:
  • Browse their selection of gorgeous dresses online and place your order. I ordered 3 different dresses in 2 sizes each.   UK dress sizes are smaller than US sizes so remember to order up one or two sizes.
  • On the selected date, the dress(es) arrive carefully packaged and ready to wear. 
  • Wear your beautiful dress and feel like a million bucks all the while knowing you only spent a fraction of the retail price.
  • After your event, place all the dresses in the prepaid bag and drop off at your local post office.
  • You only pay for the dress you actually wore.  The rental price of the unworn dresses is refunded (less shipping costs)
Isn't that brilliant?  I will definitely use this service again the next time I need a dress for a special event or even just a night out.

At midnight, after the event when I realized I didn't get a photo of the dress!
I love that I didn't have to leave my house to find the perfect dress.  And I love that I didn't have to spend a small fortune on a dress I'd only wear once.  And most importantly,  I loved the way I felt in that beautiful dress all night.

*If you want to give them a try, send me your email address and I'll send you a code for 15% off your first order.
