The Rent The Runway Sample Sale was like walking into heaven, if heaven is a bunch of designer items at extremely discounted prices. Brands like Tory Burch, Marchesa Notte and Badgley Mischka were being sold for less than $150! a fraction of what they would be sold at retail. The selection of bags was also really good in that most pieces weren’t over $200 for brands like Kate Spade and Tory Burch.
That being said, it was not all paradise. There were extremely long lines to get into the sale and once in, it was very crowded and hard to move around or really look for anything. Also, many items were damaged and even though they were discounted, it still didn’t make up for the ripped dresses or broken handles on bags.
Overall, I gave this sale a 6.5/10. There are some really great finds, if you can find them, but you really have to look for them and inspect them for damages.
