I'm probably a little late on this whole phenomenon, but thanks to Amanda at My Switch to Scrubs, I may have a new dangerous obsession on my hands.
RTR is a company founded by two former Harvard students who had the same dilemma as most of my friends and I do. Even though we have a closet full of dresses, we want a new, special (and most likely, pricey) dress for the upcoming wedding or date. RTR allows you to rent a designer dress for a 4 day time period for about 75-90% off the original price of the dress! I personally have a few dresses that I paid a pretty penny for and have only worn once or twice.
Here are a few items that I've already added to my Favorites..
|Tibi Calla Lily Cap Sleeve Dress|
|Rent for $35!! Retails for $378|
|Tibi Abstract Flower Dress|
Rent for $50, Retails for $425
Rent for $35, Retails for $360
|Mark & James by Badgley Mischka Cotton Puff Sleeve Dress|
Rent for $30, Retails for $380
The $30 - $35 dresses will wind up renting for around $50 after insurance and shipping, but hey, that still beats buying it at $300 - $400!
Thanks for the post, Amanda!
Oh, and Emily, don't let David know I was the one that told you about this...kthanks!
