There are two good reasons to rent a designer dress.

1. It's cost effective and you get the style and fit of a designer dress without the price tag.

2. It's eco-friendly. One dress gets a lot of use.

Some CafeMoms would rent a designer dress, others just aren't into it. But for those of you who are interested, there is a new online shop that rents out clothing from Lela Rose, Vera Wang, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Jill Stuart, Diane von Furstenberg, and so many more for about 10 percent of the cost of the item. And it's free to sign up.


Wear Today Gone Tomorrow offers what those other clothing rental websites do as far as renting outfits, but they say what sets them apart is that they have current season clothing and there isn't a membership or late fee.

Most items can be rented for a week for around 90 percent off the ticket price. So a $300 item will cost you $30 to have for the week; a $2,000 item would set you back $200.

When returned, items are cleaned by organic, chemical free cleaners and prepared for the next renter. 

WTGT also has plans to sell their gently-worn items for over 80 percent off.

Renting dresses is a great idea for bridal parties or if you have a fancy event and nothing to wear.

What do you think? Would you rent a dress?
