Ballin on a budget- Dresses you can Rent, Flaunt, Return.

We’re lucky that we live in a time where we don’t need to spend like a celebrity to dress like one. Thanks to services such as Rent The Runway that allow you to rent designer dresses for less than 90% off the retail price. Yup. That. Shit. Cray.

For those that don’t know how Rent The Runway works, you pick the date you need the dress for, your size and your address. You actually book to receive the dress 1-2 days in advance just to make sure its timely arrival. Now we’re all a little scared of ordering things online, especially with new designers. We always wonder-will it be too big, will it be too small? No worries! Rent The Runway saves the day by sending you a backup dress size for free. And the day after the event, you mail back the dress in a prepaid envelope. Check out their FAQ if you have more questions.

Here are a few of my favorite rentals available for $150 or less from fancy schmancy brands such as Helmut Lang, Tibi, Alice+Olivia & Hervé Léger:

Rent the Runway has inspired sites like Luxemi and Borrow it Bindaas that allow you to rent fancy Indian (dot not feather) clothes for different yet still special occasions. Now Ready, Set, Rent!
