Rent the Runway Unlimited Review - How it Works, Pros and Cons, and Would I Do It Again?
Like most millennials, when it comes to my outfits, I have an unlimited budget for clothes and never repeat a lewk. Uh, JK - I have bottomless school loans and an avocado toast habit, and some days during the winter, just swapping my yoga pants for jeans feels like an accomplishment. So, not surprisingly, when Rent The Runway Unlimited ads started popping up on my Instagram feed (I did mention I’m a millennial, right?), I decided to go for it. Best case scenario, I’d get to wear some shmancy designer clothes I normally wouldn’t be able to afford - cough, Proenza Schouler, cough cough - and try out some riskier styles that I normally wouldn’t invest in, and worst case, I’d be out $129 (I got a special rate for the first two months, although I think the current promotion is one month at $99), which is less than I usually spend on clothes per month, anyway.
(PS give the “How I Built This” episode with Rent the Runway founder Jenn Hyman a listen, it’s an interested story with some fun anecdotes about pitching to designer Diane von Furstenberg and making RTR work.)
