As the part invites start to stack up and you’re like me and you don’t like to break budget, the only number you really care about is the number of outfits you’ll need to come up with before the new year. Luckily, I’ve planned in advance. Here’s my list of sites where you can rent dresses, shoes, jewelry – you name it- so you can look fresh, trendy, and festive no matter what number party (or drink) you’re on!
Rent a Party Outfit to Complete Your Party Look without Breaking the Bank
Rent The Runway. The most awesome website that allows you to rent fabulous dresses so instead of spending on something you may or may not wear again, you can wear it once like a celebrity and not feel an ounce of buyers’ remorse. You can shop by occasion, style, price range, and accessory – Simply, I love Rent The Runway because it lets me browse holiday (and other event) looks by every possible filter: body type, color, length, size, trend, sleeve, neckline, and designer. My favorite filter is the “shop by price range” which lets you select a range of price to rent in. Check out the $30-$50! If you want to get started, check out How It Works and get shopping!
Just Soles. There is nothing worse than spending hard-earned cash on the perfect party dress to realize the matching shoes that you would die for will wreck your budget. Luckily, Just Soles is cool because it lets you buy, rent, or sell your shoes (and vice-versa). This means that you can justify buying that budget-breaker because you know you can rent them out to like-minded gals – Or, simply find the pair you want on the site and rent them for much, much less. You can search by size, color, designer, trend (and of course – if you want to buy, rent, or sell!)
Adorn. Want to gussy it up with bracelets, rings, earrings, and more? Know that the look you want will cost much more than your budget could ever afford? Go to Adorn, where you can rent out whatever kind of frosting your heart desires at rates that are less than 10% of the retail price. Bag, Borrow, Or Steal. Every lady needs a purse or clutch to finish off the look. In addition to the fact that I’m obsessed with the catchy name, this is your go-to site for all of my designer handbag desires. While you need to rent the article for at least one month, it’s safe to say that it’s much cheaper to rent two or three to go with your holiday party looks than it is to buy them.
