Ladies, we know how important it is to look great and make a good impression at a special event, right? We also know that spending a lot of money on a dress you may only wear once (after all those photos end up on Facebook!) isn’t always realistic. Well, I found this really cool service that let’s you have those high-end designer dresses you want to wear to events (parties, weddings, corporate – you name it) without breaking your budget. Interested yet? Check this out…
It’s called Rent the Runway. Founded by two young female entrepreneurs, Jennifer Hyman and Jennifer Fleiss, this growing website offers hundreds of designer dresses and accessories for all occasions that you can rent for a fraction of the retail cost. The company is still pretty new but it has already gained a lot of steam and has been featured in some of the top fashion publications, including Glamour and Cosmo.
Here are some of my favorites from their collection…
Vera Wang What A Feeling Gown – Rent $300 / Retail $1,995
Badgley Mischka SequinBell Sleave Sheath – Rent $125 / Retail $800
Herve Leger Deep Zipped-Up Bandage Dress – Rent $100 / Retail $1,050
What do you think? Is this an option you would consider when picking a dress to wear to your next event?
