I’m going to a fancy do in a couple of weeks. My delightful friend, let’s call her Olivia, rented an absolutely gorgeous dress for a different fancy do that we both went to and now I want to copy her and wear something fabulous for less. Has anyone here used the service before?

A lot of women on Rent The Runway say that they order a back-up dress which I think is smart. You apparently get one size up or down of the same style for free and one back up dress of a different style for $32.50.

I love that they have pictures of past customers wearing the gowns so you get an idea of what they look like on a wide variety of body types. They also leave detailed reviews so you get an idea of what the “problem areas” are of the dresses. I was thinking one dress wouldn’t work for me because of my ample bosom but as it turns out, it isn’t nearly as revealing as I thought.

Anyway, on to the poll! Which one do you guys like most? I’ve got a bunch in my “shortlist” but I like these best. Clearly I’ve got a thing for big skirts and pockets :)

1. Purple Petals


2. Red Roses


3. Magenta Modern
