Rent the Runway? Don’t Mind if I do…

Seems like the weekend goes by so quickly.  I am pretty positive everyone in the country feels the same way.  Honestly, when you think about it, whoever came up with this 5 day work week and 2 days off is crazy.  Wouldn’t it just be awesome if it was a 2 day work week and 5 days off.  I would even take 2 15 hour days to have 5 days off.  What a wonderful thought that is right?  Lets just take a second to dream…..

Okay, so back to reality 🙂 This past weekend, I attended a surprise 40th birthday party for a good friend thrown by his wife.  I don’t know about you but my daily uniform (when not at work) is usually jeans, a tee, and heels or jeans.  I love having to get dressed up into something sexy and sassy but lets face it, I am the mother of a 7 year old and a self proclaimed professional soccer mom, so it doesn’t happen very often.  When I am invited to a birthday party, wedding, shower, etc., I am always hesitant about spending money on a look I will most likely, never wear again. Enter: Rent the Runway.  When I first heard of the app I thought “GENIUS.”  I mean a place where you can rent pretty much anything from tops and skirts, to evening bags and ball gowns.  Why didn’t I think of this first.  When the invitation arrived, I immediately went to the app to look at their pieces.  There were honestly so many things I wanted to get, I started planning outfits for events three months out.

Here are the key things that make Rent the Runway   pure awesomeness:

  1. Customers are sent an additional size in case the size ordered doesn’t fit exactly how you like.  And there’s more….the additional size is free. 
  2. The shipping is super fast.  For emergency situations, there is overnight shipping and it will NOT cost you your first born.
  3. Their customer service seems to genuinely care and are prompt in returning emails.
  4. For one low price, RTR has a service called “unlimited” in which you get unlimited designer everyday looks for one price.  An ever changing closet, sent right to your door for ONE low price??  Who can argue that?


I got so so so many compliments on this dress.  It was absolutely perfect.  The day the package arrived, I spoke with a rep from Rent the Runway who ensured that if the dress did not fit, she would have an additional size sent overnight in time for the event.  I mean really?  I don’t know where else you can get amazing service like this.

I am officially a Rent the Runway  addict.
