Rent The Runway Review

In my MCLV Style: Ballerina post I mentioned that my gold sequined Badgley Mischka gown had been ordered from Rent The Runway but it was such a fun, and easy, experience that I really wanted to devote an entire post to telling you about it.

I’m not going to lie – I was hesitant to try this service since I didn’t know anyone who had tried it, but once I got onto the website and started looking through the selection of dresses there was no turning back.

I picked my date. Chose my dress. And ordered.


{Your dress in two sizes and any accessories you may have ordered will arrive neatly wrapped in bags & boxes, clearly labeled, and with concise directions for how to return them}


{Then you try on the two sizes that you chose, pick one, and start the styling!}


{Selfies – The best way to pick your outerwear & accessories}


{The return process is quick & PAINLESS – All you do is stuff the pieces into the pre-labeled packing envelopes and drop them in a blue mailbox on the street. That’s all!}

I’m definitely going to utilize this service again in the future next time I need a fun gown for a one-time event. Maybe even for the next ballet event I’m hoping to attend in May to celebrate the opening of Cinderella.

Is Rent The Runway a website that you’d consider trying out? And if you have already tried it, was your experience as great as mine was?

  1. Wow, that dress is stunning! I love the gold color, you definitely will steal the show wherever you wear it. I’m a member at Rent the Runway but I haven’t used their service yet. Looks easy though!

  5. I didn’t realize that they send 2 sizes. I have thought about using the service, but I was worried about a dress not fitting. That’s good to know!
