Rent a dress or buy discounted one

November 16, 2009

If you can't afford to buy that awesome dress you've had your eye on, how about renting it?

Rent the Runway is a mail-order service that lets you rent haute couture dresses worth hundreds and even thousands of dollars!

Prices are $50 to $200 for a 4 night loan and for your first rental of a designer's product, Rent the Runway will send you a second backup size at no additional cost.

Your borrowed dress will come with a prepaid envelope so you can drop it in the mail when you're done.

Rent the Runway takes care of the dry cleaning but damage insurance is $5.

You can return the dress within 24 hours and get a credit to put toward a future rental.

If renting doesn't appeal to you, here's a new way to score designer fashions at a discount!
