Can’t Afford the Runway? Rent It.

One of the most fabulous inventions of our time…it’s not the iPhone (although I’m obsessed with mine)…it’s RENT THE RUNWAY. Ever look in your closet and feel you have nothing to wear for that special day coming up? Whether it by a cocktail party, a wedding, New Years Eve, a date night, or whatever you’re attending, Rent the Runway has a dress for you! The best part is…you don’t have to pay the retail price tag of these fabulous dresses. It’s like hitting the jackpot!

So, how does Rent the Runway work?

First, you sign up at (totally free by the way) and start browsing. Browse by Designers, What’s New, Trends, Style or Occasion. Rental prices range from $50 to $200 (depending on the retail price/value of the dress). Pick the dress of your choice (and a second size, just in case, for free) and pick a second dress for $25 in case your first option doesn’t work. Enter your shipping zip code and the day you would like it to be delivered, and in just a few days…you will have the perfect dress for your special occasion or fabulous event. If you live in New York City, there’s a plus…you can get same day delivery!

From the moment I came across Rent The Runway, I thought this was the best idea anyone’s had since Project Runway. I mean seriously…when you own a fabulous dress, you wear it once anyway, right? Even my [knows-nothing-about-fashion] boyfriend came across an article about Rent The Runway and told me about it right away…he thought it was a great idea too! He was slightly disappointed when I told him I was already signed up for it, but when you’re as obsessed with fashion as I am, what do you expect? 🙂

Some of my personal favorites Rent The Runway carries include: ADAM, Alice & Olivia, Gryphon, Haute Hippie, Helmut Lang, and Proenza Schouler.

  1. Rent the Runway followed They’ve been around for nearly a year, rent designer dresses weekly so there is no stress (not 4 days) at 10% of retail values, and provide refunds for anything that doesn’t fit (which won’t happen with their standard sizing). They’ve gotten a ton of press from InStyle, The Today Show, People, Teen Vogue and the list goes on and on… They’re amazing!!
