Renting the Runway

By now, everyone in the free world has heard of Rent the Runway. I live by RTR. I use it all the time and lament the fact that I didn't think of this idea myself. But then I remind myself that I didn't go to Harvard so I give myself a pass on not thinking of what might be the most brilliant idea of all time. If you haven't used RTR before, I highly recommend it. I know a lot of people are nervous about things such as will I like it? how will it fit? what if it doesn't fit and then I'm without a dress? I have never had that experience. I think you just really have to look at the options and find something you like and if you have any reservations, always chat with a fit specialist. They will tell you the truth. I promise. They have never failed me. Also, I never rent anything over $50 that way if I don't love it, I won't have totally blown the bank (unless I have a credit--which I often do from referrals!)
Anywho, I thought it would be fun to do a recap of all the RTR dresses I have worn. That way, anyone who is wary can see that it really is awesome and not scary.

August 2010 bachelorette weekend in Chicago. Tibi Navy Origami Shoulder Dress (no longer on the site). I'll admit, this one didn't fit quite as well as I had hoped but it was fine.

March 2011 Busy Season gala. Milly Prim and Proper Bow Dress. This iPhone pic really doesn't do it justice. I swear it was way cuter in person.

March 2012 Busy Season Gala. Milly Like Honey Dress. Loved the glitteriness of this dress!
A couple of thoughts after writing this post. 1.) I'm clearly into Milly. 2. ) My hair color and styles are all over the damn place. I hope you enjoyed my trip down RTR memory lane and will feel inclined to jump on the Rent the Runway bandwagon!

*I did not receive any compensation for this post. I genuinely love RTR and want others to use them as well*

  2. I may have to give it a go! I have been apprehensive about trying them, but I need to try, at least once.

  3. I've always wondered about RTR because I'm someone that literally will go in a dressing room with 10 things and come out with nothing. I absolutely love the first Tibi dress you posted and the last Milly!!

    Just found your blog--very cute. Stop by mine and say hi sometime!
