If you have not heard of Rent the Runway, here is your chance to get a first-hand account of my experience. I am sure you all remember that fabulous Rock the Red fashion show I so fabulously styled last month, but there was one more person to style–ME! In all of the fury & work on the show I almost forgot about finding something to wear. Luckily, the light bulb went off over my head & I remembered hearing about Rent the Runway.
Read the rest after the jump…
Rent the Runway is basically the Netflix of designer dresses. You go to their website, select a dress that you like that is available in your size & order it to be rented! Prices range from a $50 rental to upwards of $300. Being a fashionista-on-a-budget, I opted to stay in the $50-75 range. Time was unfortunately working against me so I had to make a quick decision & finally decided on a white, puff sleeve Mark & James by Badgley Mischka dress. I wasn’t sure what size would be best but lucky for me (& you!) RTR lets you rent an additional size at no charge!
So fast forward past my obsession with a dress that was not available when I needed it & RTR’s awesome online chat assistance to the day of the show & the arrival of my dress. It was delivered to my apartment with no problem & right when I needed it. Tried on the first dress & it fit perfectly! The…..rats! Looks like we’re out of time.
Stay tuned to The Sassy Peach tomorrow for Part 2 of “The Sassy Peach Rents the Runway,” to find out how my experience ended! See you then!
