Rent Designer Dresses for 90% Off!

November 12, 2009

Tuleh– Rent for $200 & Catherine Malandrino– Rent for $75

Herve Leger- Rent for $150 & Alice & Olivia – Rent for $50

With the holidays right around the corner, Rent the Runway couldn’t have come at a better time. Need a unique LBD for Thanksgiving with the fam? Or a sexy, head turning dress for the New Year? Now you can have it all and for 90% off the actual price!!

Rent the Runway allows you to rent designer duds for much less! You can search by occasion, designer (such as Herve Leger, Alice & Olivia, DVF), trend, style…

How it works:

1) Find a dress you love…

2) “Schedule a delivery date, and your dress will appear on your doorstep. Next-day and even same-day delivery (if you live in NYC) is available, for last-minute wardrobe crises. And we’ll send you a second, back-up size—just to be safe.” Also, if the item doesn’t fit, you have 24 hours to return it, for no charge (score!)

3) “Put your dress in our handy pre-paid packaging and drop in the nearest mailbox (we take care of the dry cleaning!). “

I mean, honestly, whenever I buy a “special” dress for New Years, I wear it once and it never sees the light of day again. Rent the Runway is actually the perfect option for me (and you?). A $1,500 Herve Leger dress, for only $150!! WHAAATTT??

Go to now. There is a waiting list, but I was invited to join within the hour, so don’t get scared away.

What do you think? Will you give it a try? I will!!

Jean Paul Gaultier for Target! Score!

October 20, 2009

No, you’re not dreaming! First Alexander McQueen, then Anna Sui, and just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Jean Paul Gaultier confirms that he will collaborate with Target on a low-end collection! In stores March 7 through April 11, this collection is sure to be a hit! “Jean Paul Gaultier for Target pays tribute to the American woman, celebrating the forces of style both past and present in American pop culture, the retailer said.” I’m hoping to see a little 80’s and rock n’ roll – Madonna perhaps (see above from his Spring 2010 collection)? Can’t wait to see some teaser pictures of what’s in store for this collection. I’ll be sure to keep you posted!

What are you hoping to get out this collection? Are you excited for this new line? What have you purchased from designer lines at Target in the past? Were you pleased with what you saw? Or just let down?
