Donna Karan Creates Exclusive Capsule Collection for Rent The Runway

If you've ever dreamed of wearing one of Donna Karan's signature jersey designs that have graced such celebrities as Beyonce, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Aniston and many more, then you're in luck: Rent the Runway has partnered with the iconic NYC designer to create an exclusive capsule collection featuring three gowns and one cocktail dress that are available for rent at Rental fees range from $275 - $400, which is still a lot, but much less than Donna Karan's retail prices.

I turned to Rent The Runway recently to put together an outfit for The Red Dress Collection fashion show (see my outfit here) because I'm pregnant and therefore between dress sizes, and I just wanted something extra special for the evening. My experience was amazing, I love how you can sort dresses by "bump friendly" and see photos of real women wearing the pieces. And it's not just dresses - I rented a gorgeous Kate Spade necklace and clutch to finish my look. The next day, I just packed up everything in the envelopes provided and dropped them off with USPS. Couldn't be easier. Have you tried Rent The Runway? What did you think?
