Looking to impress this year at your holiday parties, but not in the mood to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to pull it off? Let me introduce you to Rent the Runway, a website that allows you to rent couture dresses and accessories for 4 or 8 days.
The site promises a 99% success rate. To ensure a happy experience, they give up to two different sizes of the rented garment, provide personal fit stylists and customer reviews. And if you're still unhappy you get a full refund (minus shipping).
I love Rent The Runway for special events. For example, engagement or family portraits, events where you're front and center, holiday parties where you want to feel like a million bucks.
Sizes come in 0 to 16, you receive over 90% off the retail price and designers include Badgley Mischka, Diane Von Furstenburg, BCBGMAXAZRIA, Z Spoke Zac Posen and Vera Wang, among many others. Pictured at top left is Christian Siriano's Can't Be Tamed Dress ($350)
