Okay, can someone please confirm that I am not the only one who is guilty? I mean, when it comes to finding things to wear for special events, I can't be the only one guilty of:
1. Trying to avoid being an outfit repeater.
2. Procrastinating like mad.
Yes. I do these things constantly and I never learn. Guilty. As. Charged.
So when it comes to number 1, nine out of ten times my closet is a no-go because I have worn everything in it (several times, yes, I admit it). And number 2? Well, why would I actually plan what I am going to buy for the event more than 2 days before, right? I mean express shipping and handling is so cheap, right? (And yes, I am ordering online because 2 days before there just isn't enough time to actually go to the store).
As many of you can probably guess, this never ends up working out the way I want. Procrastination and not wanting to be an outfit repeater just don't work well together.
That is, of course, because I am trying to buy from an online store. But why not rent? Skip the retail prices that are far more expensive than what I am willing to spend on something I will wear once and opt for the rental price.
I found out about Rent the Runway when my roommate interned with the company while in college. Each year we had a school wide dance where everyone got dressed up and after seeing her rent successfully for several events and speak so highly about the company, I had to give it a try.
I rented a Melinda Sheath Slate & Willow sequin dress retailed at $250 for $35 for 4-days and received two sizes to ensure I got the best fit and when I say it was perfect, I am not exaggerating.
It quite literally made me this happy:
And now that it's finally spring, and wedding, prom, and party season are in full swing, it's your time to shine!
All first time Rent the Runway customers receive $25 off a purchase of $75 or more and it is worth every penny.
