Here’s the scenario. Invited to a wedding. Put on weight. Need a dress. Don’t want anything in the stores. What do you do?
You may be different but I, Jennifer Jean-Pierre, hit up Rent the Runway to find evening wear for any occasion and this particular occasion was my cousin’s wedding in Indianapolis.
I downloaded the Rent the Runway app. I scoured all the formal dresses and I chose a few I liked. I consulted with friends and family and then I ordered my looks. It was easy peasy.
The dress I ended up rocking was a fitted, fishtail, mesh cutout red number from Mignon and I wish I could have kept it. It made me feel like a movie star prepared to walk the red carpet and besides looking fantastic, it was SUPER comfortable.
If you follow me on Instagram then I know you saw the videos of me dancing on insta-stories. It was epic and could not have happened if this dress wasn’t comfy! Originally I received a size 10 and had forgotten to check off the part where you can choose an alternate size.
Oh I needed an alternate size! A size 12 in fact and the wonderful folks at Rent the Runway overnight shipped it to my hotel in Indiana for me. Their customer service is worth raving about. So rave I will!
I’m lucky that Rent the Runway has a brick and mortar here in DC less than 15 minutes walking distance from my job but I chose to use the app instead. This particular one is easy to use and makes shopping so fun!
On another note, I know that red is a major color for Fall and Im pretty happy I chose this bad boy. Red was never my color but now I find myself gravitating more and more towards it. I think my complexion and this hue make the best of friends! Thoughts?
Have you used Rent the Runway before?
