Call me biased, but I feel the holidays can be especially expensive for us girls. Sure, we share some of the same expenses as the boys (gift-giving, party hosting, dinners), but we also have to worry about our appearance — especially what we’re wearing for all those holiday events.
For the most of us, buying a different dress for every occasion is pretty much an impossibility (and if you’re able to do this, I am très jalouse). I usually have few LBDs that I rotate between events, but it’s getting to the point where they’ve been seen and photographed so often, it looks like they’re the only items in my closet.
So what’s a girl to do?
Rent a designer dress!
I recently got introduced to Rent Frock Repeat through the lovely ladies at View The Vibe. The site offers designer dresses (including Canadian!) for women across Canada to rent for a short period of time for a fraction of the retail price (think Badgley Mischka for $90, David Dixon for $75 and Christian Siriano for $95).
There are some seriously GORGEOUS dresses on the site (I currently have my eye on the Badgley Mischka Ostrich Feather frock), and at such great price points, you’ll be saving some serious cash.
