Deal vs. Steal: Hervé Léger for $200? How about $80 instead?
Everyone's heard of Hervé Léger. Celebs love them because once on, they seem to fit like a glove and magically accentuate all the right places. Too bad they come at such steep prices. But here's a way to get your hands on one of these for a fraction of the price!
Hervé Léger Golden Girl One Shoulder Dress $1690
How about that same dress for $200? RentTheRunway (RTR) is a fashionista's dream: imagine Netflix for dresses. I've used RTR countless of times and I have nothing but good things to say. It's a chance for everyday girls to wear celebrity red carpet fashions at a price that we can afford! Dresses go as low as $50, and believe me for $50 you can still get an amazing dress thats worth at least 5x as much. It's simple: Pick your dress, pick the date you want your dress to arrive (you can pick to rent for 4 or 8 days),and when you're done just put it back in its prepaid envelope and send it on its way. They even take care of the cleaning! What's great is that with a 4 day rental period (8 days cost extra) you can definitely get your monys worth. Thursday night out with your girls and then a hot date on the weekend? No one will ever know! Just delay posting pictures onto Facebook ; )
This invite-only site is similar to Gilt. If you need an invite just feel free to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be more than happy to assist you in your shopping endeavors! Want to hear more good news? How about getting this dress for $80 instead.
Yes, so I cheated a bit. It's not Hervé Léger but for $80 I think I can make an exception. It looks awfully similar and I bought a red bandage dress from Express during their Black Friday sale last year and it's socomfortable. And honestly, with the compliments I got wearing my LRD (Little Red Dress) combined with its bargain price tag - I am a big fan of its twin.
