I was lucky enough to be able to review BBC myself and let me just tell you... I love it. It allowed me to put gorgeous dresses on Brynn that I wouldn't even dream of spending the money for! It was very easy to use, the hardest part was deciding on which dresses I wanted to review!
The dresses came in a gorgeous box, which also included a pre-paid envelope and shipping label for easy returns after use.
As soon as I put the Il Gufo Knit Chevron Dress on Brynn...
The other dress I picked out was the Mochino Classic Navy Pleated Dress and, I'm going to be honest, I almost didn't give it back. It was simply gorgeous.
I hope you take a moment to read Heidi's interview below! Also, don't forget to enter the giveaway at the bottom!!
I'm Heidi and I am due with my second son in 2 weeks (around same exact time as Jenni!) so that is currently occupying quite a bit of time. Just started my maternity leave from my "day job" and now focusing on Borrow Baby Couture for the next few weeks. My husband and I have a 20 month old, Cobb, and are just prepping for a 2nd little boy. Currently, we live just outside Baltimore and are running everything from our warehouse down here.
2. You own/work for an awesome company, huh? Do tell!
So, my husband and I started, own & run the company (with the help of 4-5 other employees). I am technically CEO and he is CFO. Both my husband and I went to business school and knew we wanted to work for ourselves, we just needed a good idea. After having Cobb in Dec. 2010, I was AMAZED at the amount of clothing we got that he either didn't wear at all and/or wore once b/c he grew out of it so fast. Additionally, I wanted to dress him in fashionable clothing but it was so expensive - thus the idea of Borrow Baby Couture. I actually went to business school with the 2 founders of Rent the Runway and saw how successful their business model of renting dresses was and realized the same insight of "not wanting to spend so much for something you would wear once" holds for babies/toddlers/kids as much as adults. We started by signing on with some awesome designers (Fendi, Versace, Dior, Galliano, Stella McCartney) and knew we had to give this a try - getting designers to buy into the idea was the hardest part!
3. How long have you been involved with this company and in what capacity?
We have been working on the company for over a year now, but the site only launched in late June. My husband works full-time on it and I will be once this next baby comes. It took about 10-12 months to get inventory in, get the website going and cover all the logistics. We have a ton of spring inventory and are starting to get our Fall inventory in now.
We are actually launching a "private sale" site early next week where we will be selling all of our Spring inventory at record clearance prices in order to get ready for the Fall inventory. People can get there by just going through our current site and pressing on the private sale button at the top once it's posted next week - we're looking at discounts of up to 75% off retail (for new clothing that hasn't been worn yet too!)
4. What are your favorite items and what would you recommend to others?
A few favorites...the beauty and quality of each of these dresses cease to amaze me...
Moschino Striped Gathered Bottom Dress - simple, yet elegant
Fendi Contrast Panel Shift Dress - colorful and fun
Stella McCartney Ettie Floral Eyelet Dress - beautifully intricate
