As an important event approaches, you search for the perfect dress. You scour your closet and then all your friends’ closets, but you yearn for a fresh look. But what to do when you just don’t have the funds? Meet Rent the Runway, a national company that ships designer fashion for 10-15% of the retail price. This fashion exchange works like a closet swap between best friends. Select a four or eight-day rental piece and simply ship it back to Rent the Runway after your event. Dresses start at $40, and accessories at $10.
If this company sounds like your new best friend, don’t miss the first Work it for Wishes, the first Charleston Rent the Runway event hosted by Chi Omega. This philanthropic fashion show is to be held on Thursday, February 23 at 7pm in the Stern Center Gardens. Tickets are $5, and sales directly benefit Chi Omega’s philanthropy, the Make-a-Wish foundation. Tickets are on sale Tuesday to Thursday until the 23rd. Score yours outside Cougar Mall or Addelstone Library. Two models from each College of Charleston sorority will walk in the show to tunes by local musicians Bianca & Page.
