I've written about my love for Rent the Runway (RTR) before. I've been a long time fan and customer (my first rental was in 2009), and I have continued to go to them for important events where I wanted to feel special but didn't want to invest in another dress. I've always been very pleased with their continually updated selection and even more pleased with their customer service.
So when I got invited to Washingtonian's Style Setters party, I went directly to RTR. I knew I didn't want to buy a new dress, and I couldn't wear an old one because my baby bump and my butt are growing everyday. They even have a "bump friendly" filter under "BODY TYPE" which made it much easier for me to make my selection. I went with the BCBGMAXAZRIA "Cross my Heart Gown", Halston Heritage "Tortoise Paneled Minaudiere", and a House of Harlow's "Gold Textured Cut-out Cuff" (all care of RTR). With the dress rental they let you pick out a backup size for free. I ordered a 2 and a 4 and ended up wearing the 4. I actually picked out the Inge Christopher "Corsica Scale Clutch" first but was notified by customer service prior to shipment that it had come back from the previous renter a little damaged so they let me pick out any bag I wanted! I think the Halston bag worked out even better, and I felt like a million bucks!
What I'm even more thrilled to share is that RTR is opening a showroom in Georgetown in November!! See this article from Washingtonian for more details. Have you rented from RTR? If so, what'd you rent? Did you love it? If you haven't tried RTR, what are you waiting for?!
