The Holidays are the most stressful and expensive time of the year! In addition to presents, there are all those holiday parties, and each one requires a new outfit. But now, thanks to a little company called Rent the Runway, you can wear a fancy designer dress for cheap, and give it back in the morning.
The Web Site does have a waiting list that runs 2-4 weeks, but it is well worth it. You can rent dresses from designers such as Diane von Furstenberg, Proenza Schouler and Helmut Lang, for about $50. You can browse dresses by event type, girls’ night out, birthdays, trends and styles. You can even call the company and someone will help you pick the right dress for you.
You can get insurance on the dresses for $5, and that covers the usual little tears and strains. However, if you completely destroy the dress, you are responsible for the full price.
