Rent the Runway

I had a friend's birthday dinner to attend on Sunday and I was definitely having one of those moments when I am looking at my closet full of clothes and not finding anything to wear.   This dilemma was how Rent The Runway started.  Jennifer Hyman and Jennifer Fleiss met at Harvard Business School and started this company for women who know and love high fashion.  Remember buying that fabulous dress to attend a wedding?  How many times have you worn it since?  Rent The Runway allows you to rent a dress from an impressive list of designers for about 10% of the retail price of the dress.  If you are unsure about the sizing, you can order a second backup size for free.  After the event, you send the dress back in their pre paid envelope, and Rent The Runway takes care of the dry cleaning.  What a great idea for your bridal shower, rehearsal dinner or bachelorette party.  Especially if you ended up spending more on your bridal gown that you intended to.  It happens.
