Rent The Runway

April 21, 2010 § 2 Comments

Have you ever read a Vogue or Elle magazine and day dreamed about wearing some of those gorgeous clothes featured from New York Fashion week.  Well now you can with Rent The Runway or as I refer to it the Netflix for couture or the Bag Borrow and Steal for designer dresses.

Here’s how it works:

1.Search through their list of über celebrity designers and find your perfect dress.

2. Schedule your date of delivery and your dress will be there on time for your event. If you live in NYC same day delivery is available.  This is the cleaver part – they will send you two different sizes of the dress to be on the safe side!

3. Return the dress by the scheduled date and yes shipping both ways is free. Just mail the dress back in the pre-paid packaging they provide.

Dresses are rented for as little as $50 to as much as $350. Need a little sparkle to go with your dress, they rent accessories too.

Some of their designers are Badgley Mischka, Catherine Malandrino, Diane von Furstenberg, and Giambattista Valli just to name a few.

Excited yet? Not so fast, to even view the dresses you have to request a membership. Once your memberships accepted  you’re invited to browse their website as you please. Until you become an official member I have included a sneak peek ….shhh don’t tell.
