So, after reading about it on Glamour magazine's webpage, I'm wondering if anyone has tried this out: http://www.renttherunway.com/?
And this one, from Pencey also for $75
What is neat is that they let you pick out two sizes and then, if you want, you can get a "back-up" dress for $25 extra. So, I tested it out and picked the two above. To ship to Houston and rent both dresses with two sizes each for 8 days, it would cost me $150.
Okay, again, not cheap. But not totally ridiculous either.
It's an idea right now. I'm going to scour the resale shops before ordering, b/c I could also find the perfect dress for $15...
Keep your fingers crossed!
