From the Runway to Your Doorstep

November 5, 2010

I was always taught that if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. When I first heard about this site, I have to say I was somewhat skeptical. They’re telling me I can have a Robert Rodriguez dress for 75 bucks? Or an Alice + Oliva piece for $50? I then began clicking through pages and pages of beautiful, top of the line attire.  While their retail price would normally make my wallet frightened- because of the fact I would go into severe debt, the rental prices did just the opposite- it let out a sigh of relief.

We’ve all been there: having to buy that one-of-a-kind-dress-you’d-die-without, but you only wear once. Finally, here is the answer to all of our problems, because, well we can’t all live on stars budgets.

Rent, Wear (fabulously, that is), Return. It’s really THAT easy.

And now the possibilities are endless!

Don’t stress about whether or not it will fit- they also send you a back up size of the same dress. Can’t decide between two (totally different, but just as dazzling, of course) dresses? Order the second one for a small fee of $25 during the same dates. Heck, they even take care of the dry cleaning after your night out on the town, and the day after your event, stick your dress into the pre-paid envelope, and send it on it’s way.

“It’s a community designed to fill the needs of women just like Jenn, Jenny and Becky [the founders]— love high fashion, look glamorous, experiment with new brandswomen who know and who want to for all their nights out and without the anxiety of investing in piece after piece. Users benefit from the expertise of professional stylists and the shared wisdom of like-minded fashion-forward members.” -RTR

Alright loves, you know where you’ll find me shopping for my next dress, and I highly encourage you to do the same!
