so today, my girls at work introduced me to the most awesome site! it's called rent the runway... and you can rent all kinds of designer dresses and accessories for special occasions! i love this idea! if you're like me and dream of wearing a designer dress, but would NEVER pay the $600+ for one, then this is perfect. the average price to rent is about $100, some are as low as $50. Jewelry is as low as $10...
you can filter through available dresses by price, style, color, occasion, and even body type. there's also a stylist you can call for help on sizing and fit.
i haven't tried it out yet, but it looks really easy to use. you can see which dresses are available on the date you need it... and you can even get a free backup dress in a different size so you don't have to worry about fit. you can also order a second style for only $25 more for the same date so you have two options! the day after your event, you just drop the dress off in the pre-paid return envelope... and they even handle the dry cleaning (an eco-friendly cleaner too)! if you're one like me who spills on myself quite often, you can pay $5 for insurance to cover yourself if the dress is damaged in any way.
and the girls behind this site are so young... and smart! ;)
all they need now is to add shoes and handbags and we'll all be set!
