Why I Love Rent the Runway

So I’ll never describe myself as a shopaholic. I also don’t believe in spending a lot of money on clothes or shoes. However, I still like to dress up. I just believe in doing it on a budget! Ever so often, I want to wear a really nice outfit on a special occasion e.g. birthdays, weddings etc. I always want something nice and affordable, which usually means a designer dress is off limits! Until my friend Jessica (Hey Jess!) told me about Rent the Runway!

What do you mean you can rent dresses?

So, I don’t have to buy a dress for every fancy occasion? (Especially since I hate rewearing an outfit multiple times–of course I’ll do it if I have to, but after the 4th wear it’s not the same LOL).

I was 100% sold on the idea of renting an outfit. Of course, there are certain things I will absolutely purchase e.g. jeans, everyday outfits, casual pieces etc. But, I really liked the idea of having something that I couldn’t afford to purchase as a birthday outfit. I went on the website in 2017, browsed a few pieces, read multiple reviews, and rented my first dress! I rented a curve-hugging navy blue piece for my graduation photos. It was perfect for the look I was going for! Since then, I’ve used Rent the Runway at least once a year (sometimes more). I’m a happy customer!

You can rent designer dresses for as little as 30-35 dollars! You have two options for renting. You select either a 4-day rental or 6-day rental. 6-day rentals will always cost a little more! I personally always use 4 day rentals :). Always choose a date that’s at least 2 days before your event! I’ve never received a dress late, and I LOVE that they allow you to choose a backup size for free! Returning your dress is also super easy! You just pack everything back up, and drop it off in a UPS dropbox. It’s such a game-changer!

I also want to give you $30.00 off your first order >>>>>>
