Rent The Runway: Wear a Designer Dress For a Fraction of the Cost

Posted on Nov 9, 2020 by 3 Comments

Look like you own the look for the price of a rental. Rent The Runway, an ingenious new website, allows you to rent the latest designer look for the holidays! You can get next day service (same day in New York City) on whatever dress you select, or two if you just can’t decide.

Rent The Runway’s motto is: love, wear, return. Do you get a special night out in the latest designer duds without the expense of actually buying the garment. I can see this service being hugely useful to women who just need a great dress for a particular occasion and for the woman about town who can’t be caught dead in the same outfit twice.

When you schedule your delivery your dress arrives in two sizes - just to be sure that it actually fits you because you know how sizing is these days. Very unpredictable, and I’m not talking about your waistline changing…I’m talking about designers sizing things differently to appeal to your emotions (think Banana Republic - their size 2 is literally a 6 in real woman’s sizes). But I digress.

Don’t worry about spills, either - they build in the cost of dry cleaning.

Oh, and just to sweeten the pot, go to InStyle and follow their link for a 25% discount off your first purchase if you happen to be one of the first 1000 users.

Pretty cool, huh? It’s like Netflix for clothes. Wow! Too bad they don’t have maternity…

    Wow, this is so cool. I never heard of being able to rent designer clothes like this before. Takes the guilt out of buying an expensive outfit, wearing it once for a few hours (being extremely careful not to spill, wrinkle or tear it) and then returning it to the store the next day. Of course, I’ve never done this before. LOL

    This makes so much sense.
