Let's face it... as a student with two retail jobs and a little blog on the internet, I am never going to be able to afford designer dresses, shoes and handbags; unless I win the lottery which I never do or possibly land my dream job writing for a fashion magazine in New York City. Well, now things change 'cos I can wear designer dresses and Chanel handbags; thanks to the wonderful website Wish Want Wear

Wish Want Wear contacted me last week introducing the company and asked if I would like to hire out a designer dress. Well, on a quick scan of the email, I left it to be replied to a little later on.. simply because I thought it couldn't be that simple! Hiring a designer dress?! For super cheap?! Hmmmm!

The  online dresses to hire at Wish Want Wear have a wide range and I was surprised to find a lot that I liked. They offer dresses for every occasion including: prom, dinner dates, weddings and lunch with the girls. There's something for everyone! 

On Tuesday evening, my boyfriend whisked me off to central London for a 12 course taster menu (more to come on a different post!) to celebrate 6 months together (we're lame like that). I wore the dress I had chosen from Wish Want Wear which is worth a whopping £330... but you can hire it for £55 for 4 days or £95 for 8 days! Amazing! It arrived clean but needed an iron. I absolutely love the sequined sleeves and the thick material. It really does feel luxurious! They offer next day delivery, and they even include a pre-paid postage packet so it's free to return the dress!

The customer service I received from Wish Want Wear was so, so good. I will definitely consider returning to the website for a dress for a big occasion. I have a wedding coming up in August so I definitely will!
Disclaimer: Any items marked with an asterix (*) are sent to me for reviewing purposes, but this does not affect my overall opinion. Wish Want Wear are a really good website I would buy from with my own money. Even though I have had the privilege of trying out their website and hiring a dress for free, it's down to my discretion whether I want to feature such companies/brands/products on my blog. In this case, I really recommend them and would use them in the future (paid with my own money).
