I rented from Rent the Runway for the first time last month, because I needed a dress for a Christmas party (which is the dress you see here). I had heard about Rent the Runway before, but it had never crossed my mind to use them (which I definitely regret up to this point). Since I had an upscale party to attend, I wanted to wear something designer, but knew I wasn’t going to pay hundreds of dollars for something I wasn’t planning on wearing more than once.
Which is where Rent the Runway came in. RTR is SUCH a genius idea, (one that I wish I would’ve thought of first). Most of the time, that dress that you bought for a wedding/black tie event/party, won’t be worn more than once. So why would you spend hundreds of dollars on something that will hang in the back of your closet for years after?? Especially when you can rent a designer dress from RTR for less than $50 – it’s a no brainer.
I was pleasantly surprised at the large inventory RTR had on their site – and they’re not just limited to dresses. You can pretty much rent any type of clothing you want, for any type of event. Even if that event is just dinner with friends on a weekend night.
- Select your styles for any occasion
- Find the best fit – with every order, you get a free back-up size AND every piece has reviews with photos from past renters. It really helps to see photos of what the piece looks like on different body types.
- Select a timeframe – you have the option to rent for 4 or 8 days, and you choose the arrival date – it’s that easy!
I HIGHLY suggest Rent the Runway for your next event, and I’ve even got a discount code for all you first time renters – you’ll get $30 off your first order, and it never expires! If you need even more of an incentive, the dress I’m wearing below sells for $265, and I rented it for just $30! What are you waiting for?? Shop this look, below.
