First, let me just say that this is in no way a sponsored post. It’s also in no way about being nekkid.
I pretty much live in sundresses in the summer. Casual things that I can toss over my swimsuit to head to the pool or the beach. Or to wear around in this obnoxious humidity.
But, I go for the $10-20 specials from Target, Old Navy, and any sundress sale I happen to see.
So, when I need something fancy, like for a summer wedding, I’m kind of stumped. I don’t have fancy dresses. And I hate the idea of spending money on them because I’ll wear them once and then they’ll just go to waste in my closet. Even if, like these past two weekends, I have two weddings to go to, one right after another. Because if I see some of the same people at both, I want to be wearing something different each time.
But, it’s just not practical for me to go on a crazy shopping spree.
Enter Rent the Runway. I feel like I should say TA-DA!!!! after that.
On Rent the Runway, you can choose from tons of designer dresses and YES, rent them. They rent the dresses out for 10% of the retail value. You can choose to have the dress come a day or two before your event. The day after your event, you put the dress(es) in the prepaid shipping package they include and drop it in a mailbox and you’re done. No cleaning necessary.
I rented a dress from Rent the Runway for my bil’s wedding last week and another dress for a wedding this past weekend. They will send you the same dress in two different sizes to ensure a fit- at no additional charge.
