When this pretty little blue number arrived in the mail, I jumped with excitement. And who wouldn’t… look at it! It’s stunning! It was the perfect choice for an easy everyday outfit to take with us to Boston. I wore this a couple of times, because it was just so light and perfectly casual to wear for all occasions!
So, it seems today’s post is the perfect opportunity to review Rent the Runway and it’s AH-MAAZ-ING services…
I recently signed up for the RTR Unlimited account. Which allows you access to 3 items from their collection of designer wear at all times. Your account renews automatically for $139.00 per month. During the month, you can keep or return whatever items you have as frequently, or as scarcely as you like (keeping a maximum of three items at all times). The question I’ve been getting asked a lot about this, is “is it really worth it”?
Well, I don’t know about you, but I would typically spend A LOT more than $139.00 each month on clothes. I try to look at it as an investment. When typically, I won’t re-wear all the items currently in my wardrobe. What better alternative is there than renting out items and having an ever-changing and updated closet?!
I continue to purchase key essential pieces to build my wardrobe, but use RTR Unlimited to keep my wardrobe fresh and fierce. Because, let’s be honest, I normally wouldn’t splurge on these designer items to purchase for myself, especially if I was only going to wear them a mere few times. It’s a great alternative to buying designer wear and/or only purchasing cheap wardrobe items. Plus, if you love something that much, you can keep it as long as your hold an Unlimited account, as one of your three items (or even buy it at a reduced price, if you want it forever)!
I have found that the RTR process is very streamlined, and done extremely well. They dry-clean your returned items, so you don’t even have to worry about the cleaning yourself. I’ve found that typically, I receive my order within about 2 days from choosing my items. The returns are also free! And the turn-around between sending my items back and when I get to choose my next shipment, is also no more than 2 days.
NOTE: Shipping times will depend on your locations and how close you are to a depot/warehouse. But there are a few around the country to ensure this process is fast and items get to you as quickly as possible.
Not only can you rent everyday-wear, but one of my favourite perks of my RTR account is that you can rent gowns and accessories as well! One thing I wish they did, was shoes (because I am a shoe fiend, but understand the wear and tear on these would be high)! I’ve actually become quite the advocate for RTR, it’s honestly a company I LOVE and am behind 100%! With a few of my friends now wanting to try out the RTR Unlimited account, I thought, why not do a proper review to give you the information first-hand from someone who has been using the services for a few months now.
My personal experience has been great. One thing I would highly encourage you to do before choosing your items would be to check the reviews on each item online to find out how others liked the piece. If it fit well, if it’s a small make, or runs large. This has helped me to know which size to choose on most of my items, as your standard size in designer wear can vary from up to 3 sizes! I’ve ordered size 2’s in some things, 6’s in others, when I’m typically a 4 in most cases. That feature has been a wonderful tool for reference. Plus you can see how others styled their items, how it looks on a “real person” and their star-ratings for each product as well!
So, hopefully that sums up a few questions you may have had about the RTR Unlimited accounts. If you have any more questions their, customer service team is wonderful! Very quick to answer and very helpful when you have queries.
So, now you have all the information you need. What are you waiting for? Give it a go!
First time users get 20% off their first month too (with code FIRSTRTR20P)! So now is certainly the time to test it out for yourself… plus you can cancel anytime! Now you can have access to a wardrobe you thought was only in your dreams! Make it real.
