We Love It: Rent the Runway Unlimited Review

Hey Gals!  Have you heard about RTR’s latest venture (and my new fashion obsession)!?  They recently launched Rent the Runway Unlimited, which basically lets you rent unlimited accessories from lots and lots of fancy designers.  


For $75/month you are initially sent 3 accessory items from a queue of goodies chosen by you.  Then, once you are ready for a new item (or 3!) you just send back the ones you are done with, and they’ll send you that many new items from your queue!  


I was very intrigued when I first heard about this new program they were launching, though was a little skeptical at first.  It’s no secret we’re huge RTR fans here at The Sequin Notebook, so I couldn’t resist looking into further.  After getting the lowdown, I decided to just *browse* and see what sort of items you could select for your queue.. and then it was all over with!  There are so many fabulous accessories to chose from.  They offer tons of fun jewelry, bags, scarves, sunglasses and even vests and jackets!  I decided to take the plunge and try it out after my queue  was filled to the brim with so many amazing finds.  


So I bit the bullet and signed up for their wait list – the program is currently in its Beta version, so spots are limited. Less than a week later I got the email that I was now enrolled and that my box of gems was on its way – yay!  Literally the next day I received my box – double yay!  I received an amazing necklace, a fun pair of pink sunglasses and a gorgeous gold tote bag.

The quality of all of the items is perfect - if I didn't know any better, I would think they are brand new, which I was especially impressed with for the bag, since they tend to get pretty lived in easily.  I can't way to try out the bag for work.  It's the perfect summer tote and I already know I'm not going to want to give it back!  The necklace needs a little planning since it's so stunning, though I can also see it looking really cute with a plain white tee.  I'd say the sunglasses are my least fave, but only because they aren't perfect for my face shape.  So I think I'll be sending those back first so I can get a new item in return, and then once I get a use or two out of the necklace, that'll be next, and then lastly, the bag!  Overall I'm loving Rent the Runway Unlimited and can't wait to try out lots of great accessories that would normally be pretty unattainable for this Gal!  



You can sign-up for the wait list directly on the Rent the Runway site, and it's $75/month.  So are you gals as excited as I am about RTR Unlims?  I'd love to hear if anyone else has signed up or if you are trying out anything else similar out there!

    1. It already is! I tried to resist but after seeing all of the beautiful items to select from I caved and now I'm so happy that I did!

  4. I did hear they were getting ready to do this - I've heard of RockBox that only does jewelry but its a bit less of an investment and you can outright buy the pieces you like after a trial run!

    1. Yeah the price tag on this one is a little steep and I already know that I'm going to hate sending some of the items back! It'd be nice to have the option to keep and buy what you love, though I suspect I wouldn't be able to afford it anyway!

  5. Ooh I didn't know they included accessories also? I was thinking it was just x amount of dresses per month for $75? Amazing!

  6. This is just such a great idea! There are so many times when I need a statement necklace or a clutch bag, but don't necessarily feel like spending tons of dough on it when I'll only get a few uses out of it. So this is just pure genius!!
