Renting Dresses or Buy Designer Dresses : Sample Sale

What is better then being able to rent dresses?  Being able to buy designer dresses at sale prices may actually be better.
Rent the Runway, a leading online destination for dress and accessories rentals, has announced its first ever sale of dress and accessory merchandise that have been retired from rental inventory.  Over 100 styles will be available for purchase from top designers including Matthew Williamson, Proenza Schouler, Lela Rose, Catherine Malandrino, Halston Heritage, Helmut Lang and Badgley Mischka, among others, for up to 65% off retail.  In addition to dresses, accessories will be available for purchase from top jewelry designers Janis Savitt, Dannijo, Kara Ross and many more.

"For the woman who never wants to part with her dress or accessory rental, this is her opportunity to make it part of her permanent collection," stated Jennifer Hyman, CEO and Co-founder of Rent the Runway.  Added Jenny Fleiss, fellow co-founder and President, "We've been asked since the company's inception what we plan to do with our dresses once they're no longer part of our rental lineup.  With the semi-annual sample sale, we will make room for all the new styles coming in throughout 2011 while offering RTR members an exclusive offer."

The gently worn dresses being sold will be marked online as like new, missing sequins/beads, fabric fading, picked/pulled and/or missing a belt so online consumers are aware of each dress' condition.   Rent the Runway stylists can also be consulted for dress and accessory specifics by calling Rent the Runway's customer service team at 1.800.509.0842.

What is Size XO Fashion

What is size XO fashion?

OK, it is possible you have never heard of size XO.  It is also possible that size XO does not exist or never has existed.  Well, the fact of the matter is that I am fairly sure size XO does exist.  I was on facebook last night and on the Fashion Bug page someone was asking why Fashion Bug charged more for size XO then they did for size XL.  The lady writting the post mentioned she measured them and they appeared to be the same.  Anyway, I tried to research the size and did not find much at all.  It is my understanding (possibly and incorrect understanding) that size XO clothing was created for larger size women in the same manner that size zero was created for smaller size women.  It is very possibly simply a "vanity" size.

OK, here is how Fashion Bug explained the size, "The sizes XL and OX are in fact different. An OX provides more room in various areas of the garment such as the body, armholes, sleeve length and shoulders. And a 1X have even…

The date is set.

The next edition of the WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE trade shows, will take place from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th January 2016 at Porte de Versailles.

The plan is set out in a star sha…
