If you are like me and have taste that exceeds your budget, you should consider renting a designer dress from Rent the Runway. We are in no way affiliated with Rent the Runway, we are just fans of their to-die-for dresses and famous customer service. Their whole site is brimming with beautiful dresses that you can wear once and send back, at a small fraction of the cost of retail price.
Most of the Rent the Runway dresses I’ve featured below are at or well below $100, and you get to pick a second backup size to be sent to you for free. These dresses are perfect for every event from engagement parties to post-wedding brunches. From Dolce and Gabbana to Reem Acra to a Tracy Reese dress that the First Lady herself wore, as a guest or as the guest of honor, you’re sure to receive plenty of compliments on your lovely outfit!
