happy monday, everyone. please tell me you’ve all heard of rent the runway! for those of you new to the game, the concept is this: pick a pretty dress (or skirt or necklace or cocktail ring) that you could never afford at retail price, rent it for four days, dazzle your friends with your cost-savvy designer duds, and return the dress after your event. they’ll even deliver it in two sizes so you can be guaranteed the perfect fit!
rent the runway: $75
rent the runway: $65
i love the idea — especially for those of you in the throes of wedding season! — since it’s frustrating to invest in a pricey dress and find you won’t wear it more than once with the same crowd (case in point: my beloved alice + olivia prom dress). yes, you could always go the forever 21 route, but wouldn’t it be so much more fun to waltz in wearing giambattista valli or hervé léger? click here to find the perfect look for your next event.
