A quick post on the awesomeness that is Rent the Runway. I know this online rental boutique has been around for awhile. I never checked it out because they didn’t cater to plus women. They do now and it’s amazing. While I’m hoping they get to know a few other brands for us, they saved me this weekend. I was lost all of last week looking for a dress for a very formal wedding I attended this past weekend. I searched all over, Asos, Macys, and Nordstroms. All of which cater to plus woman, still some of my favorites. However, when would I need the gown again? I had no plans on wearing it again if I paid 300 bucks for one day.
So I begin searching on Rent the Runway, which you can join by clicking–> here. I was so confident and excited that I lost 20lbs I got ahead of myself and picked this gorgeous number in a size 16. Well, it didn’t fit, not even close. So that same night, I packed it and sent it back that night since UPS is open much later than USPS. I called up the stylist, nervous because I was to leave Saturday morning and hoped, that something else could be shipped by Friday. Amazingly, I called 40 mins before “last call” and I chose a gorgeous Adrianna Papell dressed called “Luck Be a Lady”. I was worried that the color wasn’t summer enough but it worked out well. It came Friday, and was there to greet me when I came home from work. This time I was smart enough to take advantage of ordering the same dress in a larger size just in case. This 16 was a perfect fit.
Overall, I was in love with this dress, Rent the Runway was amazing in helping me fix my situation so quickly. They also offer a $25.00 off coupon code for first time renter. You can register here and peek around for the next big event you have. They’ve expanded to jewelry, handbags, sunnies, and Bridal accessories including veils, and things. Happy renting!
