I'm Renting Dresses For Every Occasion: Here's Why! / by Erin Baynham


Meet my bestie, Miriam.  

She had the amazing idea to have all the ladies wear dresses, my favorite outfit! When it came time for me to find said outfit, I was over it. No dress was good enough or fancy enough or "Erin" enough. And then it made sense--rent one! I went to Rent The Runway (join here!), the site where I had been saving dresses in my favorites for about two years.

There it was, the perfect dress! The Alice by Monique Lhuillier was an absolute hit. I got a million compliments on it. I rented this dress for $40 on Rent The Runway.  I got to keep it for 4 days, plus it came with a pre-addressed envelope to send back the dress. Even more exciting, you get to choose two sizes (the perfect back up if one doesn't fit).

You can search dresses by color, sleeve length, price, occasion, you name it! You can even search based on your body type. They've got dresses for date night and graduation, and even dressier events like balls and galas. I don't know how many dresses I've bought, but rarely wear because I don't have a reason to! In fact, I had such a good experience that I've already rented two more dresses for this week! (I tried on the dress for my rehearsal dress and it's just darling.) They also have some accessories and beauty products.   They've got random offers that go out, and if you sign up and rent a dress using my code, both of us get a $20 rental credit! (And when you invite your friends, you'll get even more credits if they rent!)

Disclosure: You and I receive a credit if you sign up and rent a dress using the links above. We both win!
