If you’ve seen my Instagram and my LIKEtoKNOW.it profile, you know that I like to get stuff from Rent the Runway. I know that for some of you renting clothing does not sound appealing. If you have any questions about that you can always take a look at my blog and video about Rent the Runway Unlimited. I’ve had requests to not only link to the Rent the Runway item, but also to the items to purchase if it’s available and to also link to an item that is more affordable if the item is expensive.You asked for it and I delivered…I updated the links to my last few Instagram outfit posts to give you more options, the links include the rental option if available, purchase option and lower-cost option. Just click the photos below to check out all the options I’ve found for you…many under $50 too. Please let me know what you think in the comments below.
Today I am going to be doing a review of the clothing and accessory rental service Rent the Runway. Please note that this is not a sponsored post, I just wanted to give an honest review. I’ve used this service, the unlimited service specifically, for over a year now. This really ties into my Buy Less, Buy Better philosophy because basically you’re not buying anything. It’s the sharing economy, but for clothing…..now wait, if sharing clothes freaks you out, everything is always very clean before it gets to you and you’re not sharing personal items like underwear or bathing suits, which would be very gross.
Here are some pros and cons of using Rent the Runway that I’ve experienced during the past year.
- You Get 3 Different Items at a Time– the 3 items can be anything from jewelry, handbags, dressed, to jackets and coats. I use it mostly for dresses and outfits for specific events. it’s been great for me because I go to a lot of events here in LA. I was becoming so unhappy with what I had in my closet and I could never find what I wanted in the stores exactly when I needed it. Rent the Runway has been great for this reason.
