Rent the Runway Review
Happy Wednesday everyone!
Recently, I had a few fall weddings to attend and I decided to give Rent the Runway a try. I seriously had nothing in my closet to wear to a fall wedding. (Cue eye roll from my family) But in all honesty, I only had summer or winter dresses.. nothing in-between! I started shopping around but couldn’t find anything that I had in mind for these events at the price point that I was hoping to keep.
At first, I was hesitant to give Rent the Runway a try because you can only keep the rentals for a couple of days. So if I scheduled my dress to arrive on Friday, and the event was on Saturday, I wouldn’t have any time to shop for a backup. Luckily, you can select a free backup size of the same dress just incase it didn’t fit quite right.
All hesitation aside, I took the gamble and selected an asymmetrical yellow maxi dress for a late September wedding. I paired it with turquoise Kendra Scott earrings. Both the dress and the earrings arrived on schedule in a really cool black garment bag. When I unzipped the bag all my items were wrapped in sealed plastic which gave everything a “just cleaned” feel that was comforting. The yellow dress was straight cut so it felt a little large on me but after a couple safety pins I liked the way it looked.

The next dress that I ordered I absolutely fell in love with. I was a little bit wiser to the whole process and chose a style that I knew would be really flattering. I ordered a clutch bag to go with the dress. I received a notification a couple days before that it wasn’t available because it was damaged by the last renter. I spoke with a stylist over the help chat on the website and they let me pick out another bag to replace it free of charge. Though it wasn’t exactly what I had pictured, I still enjoyed the bag.
