Have you guys heard of Rent the Runway Unlimited and/or used it before? I recently signed up & received my first shipment and I think I’m hooked! There’s been a lot of talk in the instagram community lately about “no shop” and “less is more” which made me pause to re-evalulate my current shopping patterns. I tend to get tired of clothes quickly and find myself wearing only the same few things over and over. That said, I want to get better at investing in pieces for the long haul. Insert: Rent the Runway... the service that allows you to allocate a certain budget to clothing for the month and as the site suggests “rent” your wardrobe. Read more about the different membership options below. You might find it an interesting alternative to your current shopping mind-set!
WHAT I’M RENTING
I’m excited to share a few of my RTR looks with you featuring some of the items I rented with my membership so stay tuned for PART 2 of this BLOG POST...until then SHOP some of my RTR FAVORITES below!
WHY I TOOK THE PLUNGE
In an interview, ” Keeping it Mom Chic” that I did with the sister-duo of Dudley-Stephens I recommended Rent the Runway monthly plans as a fail-proof maternity/post-partum wardrobe solution. Many of my recently pregnant friends have used it over the past year & swore by it! A monthly service that lets you look and feel put-together without investing in transitional sizes for the long haul.. yes please! It was something that I wished was around when I was pregnant with Rosie. Friends of mine that work in finance also swear by it.. they don’t necessarily have the time to shop and/ or want to invest much $$$ in work attire but at there same time they always need to look put together……so I thought why don’t I try it out for myself? Now that I’m pregnant I really only want to invest in a few staples but I’m not up for buying lots of new maternity clothes so trying out new trends & clothes without the financial long term commitment is a concept I’m all for!
HOW IT WORKS
RTR UNLIMITED: “Wear new outfits ALL of the time” Current promotion: $99 for your 1st month trial (reduced from $159) This plan allows you unlimited rentals with 4 pieces at a time. Meaning you can swap your items as many times or as often as you would like! You have access to 450+ brands (including cocktail, black tie attire & more) This plan is for the Mama/boss lady who has a busy social & work life and always wants to look on her game! *this is the one I signed up for*
RTR UPDATE: “Refresh your wardrobe each month! Current Promotion: Your 1st month trial is $69 (reduced from $89) This is the starter plan.. you get 4 pieces for the month with one swap or exchange permitted! 350 + brands are included (and you have access to everything but black tie affair) This plan is for the Mama (or girl) who wants to step up their wardrobe every once in a while but only needs a few key pieces a month to do so and doesn’t care about unlimited exchanges.
RTR RESERVE: This is the route most people go. If you have a special occasion and need a killer dress for… a wedding, a shower, black-tie event you can rent any style for a 4-8 day rental period! (plus a free back-up size is included as well as free returns) pricing depends on the particular rental.
THE FINE PRINT: If you’ve never rented before use the CODE: FIRST to get 20% off your first order and you can always pause or cancel your membership at any time so don’t worry if you just want to try it out for the month
