When I had fancy wedding to go to last month, I turned to Rent the Runway. It was founded by two smart women who thought, “Why not make a way for women to rent high end dresses without having to buy them?” Brilliant. I would never want to own this $300 Badgley Mischka dress – it screams “once in a lifetime” – but renting it for $50 was perfect. They even sent me a back up size for free in case the first one didn’t fit. Both came a few days before the wedding and I picked the size that worked best, danced all night looking FABULOUS, and sent them off in the pre-paid envelope the next day. They take care of dry cleaning and everything, and shipping both ways is including in the rental, too.
I don’t know why I thought that a one-shouldered dress would be difficult to pull off, but I felt great in it. I kind of wish I got a better photo, but here you go. I rocked the eff out of a one-shouldered dress.
