I had never used Rent the Runway before, but I had definitely heard about it and was very intrigued. Then, SG and I received an invitation to a New Year's Eve wedding at a very upscale hotel in Dallas. I went through my closet, knowing I had nothing to wear to such an event. With the wedding two months away and in the midst of the holidays, I wasn't sure I would be able to find an appropriate and affordable dress for the event. I immediately logged onto Rent the Runway and started perusing dresses. The website is fairly easy to use. I was able to look at dresses by event and date. I could even narrow down my selection by the price range I wanted to stay in. I marked the dresses I liked (with a heart, natch) and then was able to look only at my favorite dresses. It was my first time renting a dress, so I received a first time discount (I don't know if this is always the case). I finally narrowed my selection down to one dress. The great thing about Rent the Runway is that you don't rent just one size. They send you a second dress (the same style) in a different size, to ensure that one of the dresses will fit.
I needed the dress on Monday, December 31st. The dress was delivered on Friday, December 28th.

|All packed in nice and neat.|
|As a bonus, they threw in a RTR tote.|
|Both dresses were in the garment bag (which is yours to keep, btw).|
|Both dresses, surprisingly unwrinkled.|
The wedding was very nice and both SG and I had a great time. The dress was perfect. I was so happy they sent two sizes, because the size I thought would fit, didn't. This is a Milly dress.
|The fit was amazing.|

|The next day I put the two dresses back in the provided envelope and dropped it off at the post office around the corner.|
So, overall my I had a fabulous experience with Rent the Runway. I loved the dress and I look forward to renting another dress for another occasion.
*The opinions in this post are my own and I received nothing in return from Rent the Runway. Other than making an online purchase, I doubt they know I exist.
