new year's eve looks for less (reader deal)

December 28, 2016

New Year's Eve is right around the corner, and if you're still hunting for the perfect party outfit it's crunch time. Rather than braving Boxing week crowds at the mall only to impulse-buy a dress you'll wear once, head to Rent Frock Repeat

It's no secret I'm a fan of this Canadian company and I rent their dresses all. the. time. I love that they save me money, time, closet space, and dry cleaning costs!

 

Exclusive promo code

 

Wanna try Rent Frock Repeat? Use promo code AMY613 online or mention it in-store to get 15% off your rentals! Haven't rented a frock before? Here's the scoop:

 

how it works

 

Essentially, you can find a designer frock online or in a showroom (there's one in the Byward Market!), rent it for a fraction of the retail price, and the rental feee includes both return shipping AND dry cleaning.

 

And since each frock is worn more than once,  you're lessening your environmental footprint too. Not bad, eh?

 

Rent Frock Repeat has hundreds of dresses and they're adding new styles all the time, so here are a few of my tested-and-true favourites to help speed up your search.

 

Floral Applique High/Low Dress

 

This black floral appliqué high-low dress by Narces is perfectly fancy and still lets you bust a move on the dance floor. The built-in boning means you can skip a bra if you're small-chested like me (so liberating!) and the roomy pockets mean you can even skip a purse (plenty of room for phone, lipgloss, cards, and cash). Getting hitched on NYE? This frock comes in ivory, too! Retails for $700, rents for $120.

 

Long Sleeve Lace V-Neck Fit & Flare

 

Guilty as charged: I love me an LBD. This long sleeve lace v-neck fit and flare by Nha Khanh hugs you in all the right places and the elbow-length sleeves offer the perfect amount of coverage for wintertime. Don't event get me started on the nude crinoline, this dress is just too much fun! Similar sleeveless style is available here. Retails for $650, rents for $120.

Sequin Gown with Cowl Back

 

Off to a seriously sophisticated soirée? Head-to-to sequins are the way to go. This Badgley Mischka navy cap sleeve sequin gown with cowl back will have jaws dropping as you walk away. And oodles of stretch means it's beyond comfortable! Also available in a gorgeous rose gold. Retails for $900, rents for $175.

Floral Neoprene Long Sleeve Mini

 

Headed to a funky fête? Reach for this trendy floral print neoprene long sleeve mini by Erin Fetherston! The substantial fabric and full sleeves will keep you warm, and the structured cut is oh-so-flattering. Plus: POCKETS. I rented this one for my birthday and I'm renting it again this week. Trying my damnedest to buy it from the RFR folks! ;) Retails for $575, rents for $70.

Emerald One Shoulder Sequin Gown

 

Emerald sequins. Do you really need to know anything else? This emerald one shoulder sequin gown by Badgley Mischka is the very picture of Hollywood glamour. Top it off with a vintage or faux fur stole and you're set! Stretch plus + ruching = instant hourglass shape. Retails for $1000, rents for $160.

So there you have it! Skip the mall and head to Rent Frock Repeat to find the perfect new year's frock. And remember, use promo code AMY613 for 15% off!
