We’ve all been there. We spend a couple hundred dollars, or thousands, on a dress we love. We wear it to a wedding, get a bunch of pictures taken and then, it hangs in our closet. And every time we see it, we cringe because we know we should wear the piece more…but we don’t want to. Our inner soul wants something new and fresh…that hasn’t been posted on social media yet. Sad, but true.  We also all have had the experience of buying an item, wearing it 3 or 4 times and then, we’re over it. Isn’t it awesome being a women?!

Rent The Runway in the Topanga Mall in Woodland Hills, CA.

Rent The Runway and the like is the answer to your special occasions, work wear and everyday lifestyle finds. Wardrobe Rental places like Rent The Runway(men and women), Gwynnie Bee and Le Tote are increasingly getting more popular. What is it? They are companies that rent out clothes for special occasions and/or everyday lifestyle wear. It’s like the chic and cool sister to Men’s Wearhouse.

I recently had the privilege of styling my dear friend, Harmony Grillo, of the non-profit http://www.IAmTreasure.com, for her annual Gala. Rent The Runway was the perfect place for her. She looked stunning in designer couture! Retail, her dress, jewelry would of been over $1000.00. The rental value was under $100.00. Yes, it’s true! The Halston dress she wore had a rental price of $30.00!  Thank you Rent The Runway!

What a value! To answer my question, yes, it’s worth it to rent your wardrobe. Please check out Rent The Runway and online companies like Le Tote and Gwynnie Bee(plus size). All three companies offer everyday style finds for work, play and vacations. It’s finally possible to have a designer closet without the hefty price tag. If you’ve been renting from a service like this, please let us know your thoughts.
