Why I Rent the Runway

Who's down to spend hundreds of dollars on one piece? I.e. one dress...worn once....every 2 years?
Not me...anymore.

Regardless of where you are in life, you've spent hard earned money on formal wear for someone else's occasion, OR will soon be in the same boat. This post is to encourage you to skip that boat sinking ship.

At this point, Rent the Runway has been killing the game for years.
The "every girl's dream" start up was created by Jennifer Hyman and Jennifer Fleiss in 2009 and has grown into a multi-million dollar one-stop-shop for thousands of women.

This red dress fit like a dream! It was elegant, flowy, comfy on the dance floor and a compliment magnet.

This was most certainly a pricier selection for me, but renting a knockout designer piece over purchasing a trendy fast fashion throw away dress makes more sense now than ever. While prepping for this post in my mind (yes...that is a thing), it dawned on me how crucial this business model is for our "I have nothing to wear" culture. I'll cover more about this impact on a later post.

I've personally never ordered accessories, handbags, or casual day wear from the site. I usually reserve my RTR dollars for weddings or engagement parties, but with this last experience, I may give some casual wear a go. 

The Beaux and I had an amazing night.

Seamingly yous,
