There haven’t been too many worthwhile sample sales lately, but I’ve missed the thrill of the hunt so we decided to drop by the Rent the Runway sale today! As I looked through the window of the space, I eagerly anticipated scouring the racks upon racks of pretty dresses! <3
When I got there a bit before 5 p.m., the after-work rush had not yet started so I was able to calmly peruse the racks.The sale had quite a variety of dresses, especially in the larger sizes but still a decent selection in the 0-2 section (and in great condition). There were multiples of certain dresses, while other styles were more scarce. I scored 2 dresses that I’m quite pleased with!
Z Spoke dress, Retail: $350, Rental: $60, Scored for keeps: $70
Milly dress, Retail: $450, Rental: $50, Scored for keeps: $68
Now, the question becomes- where to wear these??
They won’t be restocking dresses but they might bring out a few more accessories. And, rumor has it that they will be slashing prices towards the end of the sale, although the selection could become rather skimpy. (A saw a long line for the dressing room when she arrived before 7 p.m.!)
