Rent the Runway Unlimited
I love clothes - and shopping. This is an expensive hobby and living in NYC, closet space is limited. RTR unlimited makes me feel like I am shopping and gives me access to a huge rotating closet of basic to dramatic pieces. And, it's totally fine (and typical) that I only wear things once. From a red fur coat to jeans to a dress as the mother of the bride, RTR saves me time, worry and money. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.
The game changers of all game changers, the unlimited monthly subscription at rent the runway. If you live near a storefront, even better as now you can swap out pieces on the spot. This has saved me in so many last minute fashion emergencies, saved me time, and money. I always feel my best in the pieces they carry.
So I was already a major fan of RTR - I mean I literally used it once a month for something. And then I tried out their RTR Unlimited service which lets you pick 4 items that you can keep as long as you want or switch out as much as you want for $159/month. If you're like me, and you travel a lot and go to a lot of events this is a life saver! I never have time to pick out outfits or shop for stuff and don't want to wear the same stuff over and over. And they offer a one month special to try it for $99! That's 4 pieces you can switch out as much as you want in a month! Swear they need to give me an endorsement already lol.
This might be my most favorite thing. I've been an unlimited member for over 3 years and it has absolutely changed my life. I can't remember the last time I went to the dry cleaner. I wear new clothing all the time. And stuff I wouldn't dare buy myself. I have discovered new designers, new flattering shapes and sizes, new styling ideas, to say this has been revolutionary is an understatement.
I love that I'm not stocking up on fast fashion that ends up tossed in a season or two - I'm now really weighing purchases and valuing them. RTR's customer service has been uniformly fantastic and the rental and returns process goes off without a hitch nearly every single time.
I wear a RTR rental nearly every day to work and it has simplified my mornings immeasurably. I can't say enough good things about RTR - I'm a true evangelist. If I can make one pitch, it's this: if you need to dress professionally at work, this is the easiest, most cost-effective, most stylish way to do it. You will not be disappointed!
I often present at various large conferences or at meetings. Standing out, being confident and being on trend is important. However, I use Rent the Runway Unlimited to mix up my work and play waredrobe without spending $$$ on a new blazer or a top that is only trendy for one season. I can take the fashion risks with low cost and feel great.
RTR has been a game changer, especially now that I'm pregnant. While the selection of maternity-specific clothes is limited, it's a huge relief to not have to buy a bunch of clothes that can only be worn for a few months. I also plan on keeping my plan going post-baby as I'm not sure what will fit me for awhile!
