Rent The Runway Unlimited Subscription Review – March 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

RENT THE RUNWAY MARCH 2016 - BOX

Rent the Runway has begun their new Unlimited subscription! (I believe there still is a waitlist, but they recently opened it up). It’s a designer rental service – think Le Tote, but higher-end. You pay a monthly fee and as long as you’re subscribed you can rent up to three items of designer clothing and accessories, and can swap out any of or all three items at a time for new ones. However many items you send back is how many new items you will be sent next. (Rent the Runway takes care of dry cleaning.)

The items come in a zip-up, fold-out garment bag on hangers, which are yours to keep. Also inside, in a zipper pocket, is your return shipping label and a little plastic lock to loop into the zippers when you ship things back.

RENT THE RUNWAY MARCH 2016 - ITEMS 1

Trina Turk Grey Alesia Pullover – retail: $298 ($50 a la carte rental)

I love this sweater! It was so soft and it felt new to me. The pink geometric shapes were a mix of embroidery, beading, and sequins. I wore this as much as I could before returning it. I so wanted to buy it, but even with the 30% off that subscribers get to keep items, the price was just way too high for me to consider.

Sachin & Babi Abstract Khan Jumpsuit – retail: $450 ($70 a la carte rental)

Okay, so this is WAY out of my comfort zone, but I thought it looked pretty, and I’ve never ever tried on a jumpsuit before, so I just kind of thought “why not??” I love that it ties to emphasize the waist. I actually like it! It felt so comfortable. It was completely lined and so soft on my skin. I don’t have anywhere I would ever wear this, but it was fun to try!

Loeffler Randall Floral Mini Rider Bag – retail: $425 ($65 a la carte rental)

This bag is so cute! I love the watercolor floral-like print. There’s a few extra little pockets, and the quality feels nice.

I think the lining is really cute, too! Love the polka dots.

Verdict: This was my favorite Rent the Runway yet! I loved that sweater so much, and I got a chance to try something I never would on my own. It’s expensive, but you have to consider the value you’re getting from it – I think, practically, this is a subscription perfect for people who either already spend a lot on designer clothes each month, and/or have a lot of black tie/formal events to attend, or like to have an ever-changing wardrobe an never wear the same thing twice.

What do you think about Rent the Runway? What kinds of items do you think I should rent next?

  1. I love jumpsuits, but I have hard time wearing them because I’m long in the torso. They are very chic. I did find one that actually fit me at H&M. When I wear it I feel like one of Charlie’s Angels for some reason. Wear it out before you return it. Be the most glamorous person at Starbucks or the grocery store. There’s nothing wrong with that.

  2. I found that bag at a thrift store in Brooklyn, brand new with tags for $70. Definitely my best thrift shop buy!!

  3. Haley!! The Sweater is Amazing!!! I think you looked Beautiful in the Jumpsuit too! You could be a Model !!!

  4. I think you can wear the jumpsuit anywhere, why not? My mom tells me life is so short and each day is precious. She encourages me to wear my best outfits often, use my best china, etc. She’s right as usual 🙂

    • Your Mom sounds like a very smart Woman! I totally agree ?✨

  5. If you go to Trina Turk’s website, there’s a size medium of the sweater there for 170 plus am extra 10% off on your first purchase.

    I would maybe bookmark all the stockists and the sweater might drop to even lower depending on how popular it is.

  6. That sweater is amazing. I would never return it. Ever. ?

  7. I have no idea where anyone would wear that jumpsuit but you should find somewhere. It looks amazing on you! I know it is out of your comfort zone but you wear it well. Go grocery shopping or for a bike ride in it.

  8. What happens if you spill or stain something? Do you have to buy it?

    • Nope. They handle all cleaning and repairs as part of the fee. Loss is another issue but you can purchase cheap insurance that covers even that through RTR.

  9. The jumpsuit looked amazing on
