Maybe for some people the holidays are a time to spend with friends, family and other assorted loved ones. It’s the same deal for us — we just have this rather insane desire to look good doing it. And chances are if you read Styleite regularly, you do, too.
So that’s why we teamed up with Rent the Runway. If you haven’t heard of this service, allow us to get you caught up. Rent the Runway lets you do just what its name says: rent high-end dresses for a fraction of their retail prices. The rental fees generally run between $50 and $200, and you can hold on to a dress for four or 8 days (depending, of course, on how many holiday parties you need to wear your Prabal Gurung cocktail dress to.) Dresses are delivered in a day or so (as long as you live in the contiguous United States — the service only ships to the lower 48!), and shipping and dry cleaning are included in the price. But you don’t even have to worry about the price, because we’re giving away a $200 Rent the Runway giftcard every week in December!
Entering is easier than explaining to your accountant why you spent $1,400 you didn’t have on an Herve Leger dress you didn’t really need. Simply upload your best holiday look to Style Sheets before the end of the each week, and our editor-in-chief Verena will pick the best look from the submissions. Winners and runners up will be featured in a weekly slideshow, and the best look will get a giftcard.
So what are you waiting for? Go — dive into your closet, create something spectacular and upload it to Style Sheets! Your chance at wearing Christian Siriano or Proenza Schouler (or any one of a slew of fabulous designers) is just a flash and a click away.
