I've had my first request for a blog post...and I am super excited about requests! Now...to do this right I really like to experience or try the activity/product. However, in this case I cannot. So I want to give you others opinions and then lastly what I think I would think...got it?
So on to Rent the Runway. Have you heard of it? You can rent dresses and accessories at a FRACTION of retail price. For example: I could rent this Herve Leger
The following 4 blog posts are all Rent the Runway reviews. All were good experiences (I couldn't find an all out bad one) but each instance something went wrong. Wasn't overly impressed, but liked the concept? Didn't have her size in that dress or that one....? Read for yourself.
Ms. Badgley Mischka
Ms. Christian Costa
Ms. Yumi Kim
Ms. Yigal Azourel
So my personal opinion:
Even though I've read "fool proof" instances, they send you two of the same dress, different sizes AND a backup dress for $25. I'm still VERY nervous about the fit. My bod has never been easy to fit and even if they have "my size" who knows if is going to look in the butt or waste or arms....
I love a gorgeous label as much as the next gal....but what is MORE important to me is how fabulous I look in something :-) I would wear something from Target if it fits me perfect and I'm in love with it. So I don't know if this is the best site for me. It makes me very anxious that if I'm going to rent a dress (basically put all my eggs in one basket) for an important event, what happens when I hate it? What happens if I hate the "back up." It is just so risky for me. Now...as I was doing my research a banner did pop up exclaiming if neither of the dresses fit, I would receive a full refend. Nice. But again...risky if I counted on that one dress.
This may work for some gals, but I don't know about this one. But I may have to try it one day to see if it proves me wrong....I'll look at it again after FB season...
