On October 18, 2012, Bergdorf Goodman celebrated 111 Years of Extraordinary at the Plaza Hotel. I, a luckier than lucky little Beauty Gal, was invited to take in the festivities.
And here’s what I wore, via Rent The Runway.
I like to think I’ve got a pretty deep closet. I’ve accumulated some choice fashion finds over the years. . . a killer statement shoe here, a dope-azz tote there. Ya know. I do OK. But sometimes an invite comes across my desk. . . for let’s say — a super duper formal gala and a girl finds herself in a bit of a pickle. What to wear? Here’s where Rent The Runway saves the day.
Over the course of Fashion Week I found I relied on Rent The Runway for a few key pieces for several dinners and events. Prior to Fashion Week, I hadn’t visited RTR since I originally covered there launch back in 2009. So I was in for a real surprise to learn that in addition to easy peasy online dress selection, there’s also a showroom in Manhattan. Uhm, does RTR get any easier? And to add icing to this beautifully layered cake, RTR features some of my favorite designers like Helmut Land and Narcisso Rodriguez. …Check out my showroom pictures and dress sections.
All in all, I had a really positive experience with Rent The Runway. Major kudos for:
I highly recommend Rent The Runway for your next big affair. I have a formal gala in a couple of weeks…excuse me while I get RTR on the line!
Ever come across an idea that’s so incredibly brilliant you kick yourself with your Manolos for not thinking of it first? Rent The Runway is pure genius! It’s an online shopping destination for fashionistas who want to don the latest trends without committing to astronomical price tags.
Rent The Runway gives registered users access to high fashion frocks without the financial headache of ownership. Rent The Runway procures posh pieces directly from top designers and then offers rentals to fashionable frugalistas at just 10% of the retail price. So for example, that $300 hotter than hell Alice + Olivia Back Zip Cut Out Sleeve piece of hotness you’ve been coveting can be yours (for a few days) for the low low price of $50. And how’s about that $1600 Herve Leger Gun Metal Sheath Dress that would make you the envy of your next cocktail party…for $200, its yours!
Rent The Runway is the brainchild of Jennifer Hyman and Jennifer Carter Fleiss. The ladies met at Harvard Business School and became great friends…I find myself wishing I had taken a class or two with these brilliant moguls on the rise!
In addition to Ready-to-Rent clothes, users of Rent The Runway also benefit from the expertise of professional stylists and the shared wisdom of like-minded fashion-forward members. Through exclusive relationships with top designers, Rent the Runway is able to continually update its stock with the latest pieces.
