Let’s face it, it’s hard to rationalize spending half a week’s paycheck on a designer gown, pair of heels or bag that you’re only going to wear once. Receiving the prestigious title of bridesmaid, prom queen or any wedding invitation comes with the heavy burden of figuring out what to wear, and where to buy it. I for one always find myself in a pickle, because somehow, at the ripe, old age of 22, I still do not own anything appropriate for these occasions. I’m notorious for wearing the same dresses time and time again, perpetually worrying that I’ll be caught in the act.Similar to the notion of buying a wedding dress or a graduation gown, luxury clothing pieces for anomaly events are impractical to purchase if they are only going to be worn ONCE. Right? One company is here to solve all your dress needs, with the lofty proposition of walking the runway right into your closet, to rent.
Enter Rent the Runway, solving the problem women face every time a fancy event comes around. Rent the Runway allows you to rent beautiful, designer dresses for literally up to 90% off the retail price. The idea is really genius seeing that a lot of women are concerned about wearing the same dress more than once, especially if the guest list is likely to repeat itself.
Although the rental aspect is what gives the brand its competitive advantage, we can’t forget about the amazing prices! Rent the runways gives consumers who wouldn’t normally be able to purchase pricy labels such as Vara Wang, Derek Lam and Elie Tahari the power to do it!
Now you have a chance to purchase these gently used designer clothes and accessories for a 90% discount. Brands include Badgley Mischka, Kate Spade, Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier, SUNO and Theory.
