I cannot contain my excitement over how awesome this is. I'm supposed to be sticking to my sleep schedule and going to bed at 10:30pm, but seriously, I can't even.

First of all, look at this dress:

A girl in my grade wore it last year to Junior Prom and it was absolutely stunning. Everyone was talking about it and how she looked like an A-list movie star. It retails for over $600, which is way out of my budget, but I can dream. Luckily, now I don't have to. Because I can rent it for $90.




It's through a website called "Rent the Runway," which, as the name implies, allows you to rent designer dresses for a fraction of the price. I had heard of it years ago, but never gave it much thought. Of course, they don't have every dress under the sun, but there are so many options. You can rent a dress that retails for over $1000 for a mere $70. It sounds too good to be true, and there must be some drawback, which I haven't investigated yet, but I am seriously considering renting a dress this year. I'm only going to need one wear out of it anyway, so why not?

But seriously, this is incredible. Instead of paying $160 for a meh dress I'm only going to wear once (like I did last year), I'd much rather rent a quality dress for cheaper. I'm going to be addicted to this site, looking through all of the dresses. I've already seen so many that I like.

They've also got a beta version thing going on which allows subscribers to rent three dresses for any amount of time for $49/month and swap them out at any time. That sounds pretty awesome, because I could have rented multiple dresses with the money it cost to buy one dress.

What are your thoughts on this? I can't be the only one super excited about all the possibilities :P ◊
