Rent the Runway Update : A Monthly Subscription

I am on my second order of Rent the Runway Update. And I am loving it. Who doesn't love coming home to new clothes? I signed up a few months ago and got approved just in time for my trip to Joshua Tree. Here's why I decided to join, how it works and why I think you should try it.

I guess the big question is - Why did I decide to join?
I am back in the corporate world and the clothes I shop for has changed. I ask myself - Can I wear this to work? - every time I try on clothes. Don't get me wrong, I haven't completely changed the way I dress, I just modified it for the workplace. But that's also stopped me from buying fun items that I used to jump at. So, last month I ordered a sequin jacket and a perforated LBD - not exactly work ready, but I loved them and wanted to wear them.
RTRU lets me have a little fun without the full commitment.
Also, the clothes that I rent are not in my budget. I wouldn't be able to buy 4 pieces like this a month, there are some brands that I would never wear because I can't justify their price. So, its fun to wear something that I might never have tried on.

It's super easy. 
I downloaded the app. It notifies you when its time to choose a new shipment. Once you choose 4 pieces it ships out to you in a clothing bag. You wear them as much as you want for the month. It notifies you when its time to send them back, which is super easy because you put them back in the bag they came in and use the return label that was included in the shipment. And then you drop it off at a nearby UPS store.I have a serious problem returning items and this was super easy for me.

Why should you do it?
If you're an outfit rut or want to start the new year trying out new cuts, fits, patterns without fear or commitment - RTR update can help you achieve that goal.

Will it save you money?
Maybe. I don't know. I'm only two months in. So my shopping habits haven't completely shifted. They might. It's 89 a month - that's less than what I pay for coffee a month. So you know.

Here's a few items I ordered - each shipment consists of 4 pieces.

1st Shipment
1. Free People: Amelia Knit Mini Dress
2. Sanctuary: Rose Seduction Bomber

2nd Shipment
3. Trina Turk: Red Ruffle Hem Dress
4. Endless Rose: Rose Print Bomber Jacket

I didn't realize I was on this style kick until I made this collage. LOL!
