In the words of the Wall Street Journal.... "Cinderella dreams? Shoestring budget? No problem"
This year for New Years Eve, I'm doing "Rent the Runway"!
I've been using this site for a few years now and its amazing! Whenever I have a really dressy event, like a wedding or a big party, or NYE, I always want to look amazing but hate splurging on expensive dresses.
Its hard to buy a dress you know you probably will only wear once, and then it will sit in your closet. So rather than spend a lot of money, I always end up spending just a little money on a dress I don't really love and then I NEVER wear it again (and usually feel uncomfortable the whole night).
Well, not anymore! Rent the Runway allows you to rent gorgeous, crazy-expensive, dresses (and bags and jewelry!) from top designers! Most dresses you can get in 2 different sizes (just in case one doesn't fit quite right), and you don't have to worry about dry cleaning them (they take care of everything!) You get the dress for usually 3 days, so you have time to try it on, etc, before your big event. Then when you're down you just mail to back to them.
Today only, you can get 50% off on rentals for New Years Eve! Happy renting!
