Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved picking out outfits for events way ahead of time. During college while I was in Delta Gamma at NC State, I had to find outfits for numerous events and functions and didn’t like the idea of buying a dress and then never wearing it again which is basically what happens with the majority of my more formal dresses. That is when I first heard about Rent the Runway.
If you have never used Rent the Runway, you are seriously missing out! For a girl who has attended more weddings than I can count, it has been one of my absolute favorite companies! I downloaded their app on my phone and have folders and folders of dresses I have “liked” for specific events. I can then go back to those folders whenever I want and my dress ideas will be there.
So, if you have a wedding or other formal event coming up, I would definitely 120% suggest RTR. They have the best customer service, a HUGE selection of designer dresses that you can see on real customers too in review photos, and you get to order a second or “back-up size” for free. With the “back-up size”, the reviews of other customers, and photos, it is very unlikely you will get a dress that doesn’t fit.
Plus, if you’re a new customer, you can receive $25 off your first order of $75+!
So here is a little #TBT for you with a few dresses I have rented in the past… (please excuse the photo quality- didn’t know these pics would one day be on Pretty in the Pines!)
