Get ready for yet another Rent the Runway sample sale featuring “gently” worn dresses and accessories at up to 90% off retail. Expect to find designers such as Badgley Mischka, Halston Heritage, Nicole Miller, Erin Featherstone, Sachin & Babi, and more. It’s important to keep in mind that the dresses have been rented, aka worn many, many times so look out for major signs of damage. Also nearly all of the featured designers offer their own sample sales where you can buy brand new dresses at similar or lower prices. My advice is to go early if you’re looking for a pricier couture gown/Herve Leger dress or wait towards the end for final discounts that will bring the pricing down to what it should have been at the start.
