Have any of you tried Rent the Runway or RTR? I have once in the past and vaguely remember a good experience. Well I am heading to Vegas for my birthday and decided why not swank it up with some fancy dresses.
One of the best deals on RTR is their selection of Herve Leger dresses. They have about 30 dresses of varying colors, designs and lengths, but all have that signature banded style. They range from $100-$200 for 4 days, which is perfect for a weekend trip. With each dress order, you get to select 2 sizes. Best of all, if you rent one dress, the second (lower priced) one is $25!
So here is a real-time review in multiple stages. Right now I am submitting my order for 2 Herve Leger dresses, both in shades of pink.
Here are my choices:
"Guys Kind of Girl" Dress $160 + $5 insurance
"Heartbreaker" Dress $125 (but effectively $25!) + $5 insurance
Sounds like a great deal right? And I think it is. One worry I have though is that these dresses have been rented and used maybe 20-30 times! How does it hold up with all that stretching and dry cleaning? I'm worried that they might be overstretch or not have that "sucking in" effect that Herve is known for. Oh well, only time will tell!
So for both dresses (and an extra bracelet I rented, yes you can rent jewelry too!) The total came out to $235.77! I will post Part 2 in the beginning of November when my dresses arrive!
