Rent the Runway Blue Dress Edition

_MG_0282blogpics

I’m the type of person that loves having a new dress for all kinds of fun events in life: first day on a new job, an interview, wandering Target, Levi’s, Nordstrom, Dress Barn, Banana Republic and finding one I like on the rack, a wedding, etc. For the longest time, dresses were the only item of clothing I’d wear to work (dress pants just fit awkward).

When you begin to stick to a budget you realize getting a new dress for every life event isn’t the most feasible plan.

Rent the Runway is my favorite spot for dresses to wear to weddings without breaking the budget. Rentals range in price. I typically rent from the $30 category. I tried it for the first time in December for a wedding. Last weekend I tried it a second time to wear to a wedding rehearsal and for dinner afterwards. I can’t wait to try it again in July for another wedding.

How does it work?

Find a dress you like, rent the dress for a 4 or 8 day period of time, and send it back when the event is over. You can even have them send you two different sizes in case one doesn’t fit. It’s that simple!

    The royal blue color really suits you well. I think I would have a hard time returning a dress like that.

    i love this dress on you!
    and it’s awesome to rent for special occasions that you would probably not ever wear the dress again.

    […] I rented enough dresses for weddings (see other Rent the Runway dresses I’ve worn: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) that I upgraded to Rent the Runway Pro to have free shipping and insurance on each […]
