I’m kicking off a week full of Valentine’s Day inspiration with this Rent The Runway desk! I chose the Marchesa Notte Sweet Kiernan Dress to style for one of my v-day looks. I’ve always loved using RTR for black tie events, but it’s also great to use for weddings, vacations, or any day that you just want to be extra special. Valentine’s Day is definitely that day.
The crystal beading and metallic sheen give this dress a special feel to it. These are designer dresses, so the quality is really excellent. This dress retails for $745 but it’s available to rent for only $30. I chose a 4 day rental (you could also do 8 days) and the process is super easy for those of you who haven’t done it before! I was so nervous the first time I used RTR a few years ago, because the dresses are so expensive to actually buy and I was afraid I would somehow damage the dress and then spend the next year trying to pay for it! After that first rental though I realized that there really was nothing to be nervous about and I feel completely comfortable with the process now. You can search from thousands of styles on their site, and then read through reviews and see pictures of other women wearing the dress, which is always a huge bonus for me. Another great thing is that you can choose a backup size for free when you order, in case you are in between sizes.
The dress comes in a zipped up garment bag, on a pretty pink hanger (that you get to keep). Once you are ready to return the dress, you just zip it back up in the garment bag, lock it with a little plastic lock they provide to you, and drop it into a UPS drop box. Super easy!
I’ve linked to some of my favorite dresses for Valentine’s Day below, including the one I am wearing. One note about this dress, however, if you have a large chest this is not for you! The top part is fairly tight and has absolutely no stretch. I could get away with it, but just barely.
