And it was fan-tastic!
I didn't want to spend a ton on a dress for my friend Monica's wedding so I decided to take the plunge and rent. I have to say, I was a little apprehensive at first. What if it didn't fit?! What if it looked "worn?"
My mind was put at ease by the recommendation of a friend who used the service before. Then I found out about the free backup size, stylist support, and option of ordering a whole other "back up dress." I decided to give it a shot.
I was blown away by their selection, rental options, customer service, and my overall experience.
After much deliberation, this is the dress I chose:
Here is how I looked wearing it:

After using Rent the Runway, I don't think I'll ever buy a dress for an event again! I mean, why spend hundreds of dollars on a dress to wear it once? Not to mention that it was pretty sweet to slip on an $890 Badgley Mischka gown without having to rob a bank first!
Rent, wear, return, repeat. It's genius. Never over spend, never worry what to wear, and never get bored with your wardrobe again. I'm in love.
My gown arrived perfectly pressed, (with a goodie bag!), fit perfectly, and it was so nice to just to stuff it in its prepaid UPS bag the next morning. No dry cleaning, no hassle, no looking at it hanging in my closet for the next decade and feeling guilty that I should have worn it more. Rent the Runway is my new best friend.
What do you think? Would you "rent" the runway?
