Outfit Post: Unlimited Feathers

By now, most of you are probably hip to Rent the Runway. You know, the fashion lover's dream site that allows you to rent fancy designer dresses at a fraction of the price. Yeah that one.

Well it just got a whole lot better.

Recently the company decided to expand their Unlimited program (which previously limited shoppers to accessories alone) to include all their inventory.

That's right. ALL their inventory. Jewelry, accessories, dresses, you name it.

For a monthly fee (either $49/month or $99/month depending on when you signed up), you can borrow three items at a time for as long as you want. Don't like an item? Send it back and pick another item. Love an item, keep it for as long as you want.

If you're really smart, you can have a constantly rotating collection of designer clothes and accessories for less than $100 a month. And if you're like me and typically buy different versions of the same item (striped shirts, I'm looking at you), this is an incredible way to let you experiment with different trends and styles without the commitment. Trends like this Elizabeth and James feathered jacket. This is exactly the type of impractical item I would lust over but would never consider buying. It's exactly the type of impractical item I would love to wear once around town and then immediately exchange for something else. With the Unlimited program, I get to do just that.

Goodbye, style rut. Hello, designer wardrobe.

(Rent the Runway did not pay me for this post. I'm pretty sure Rent the Runway doesn't know this little blog exists. Yet.)
