Gorgeous Black Silk Dress from Lending Luxury! #LendingLuxury

Hello Dear Readers:

  I can not wait to introduce you to Lending Luxury!!A super cool dress rental company that has hundreds of dresses and outfits perfect for your affair, wedding, party, birthday, anniversary, prom, sweet sixteen, etc.

 I was super excited to try out this fabulous new dress rental service out of Florida for my wedding Anniversary and I have good news and bad news. 

  The good news: It was a really smooth and easy transaction choosing a dress, how long to rent it for and all of the website info.  The dress was brand new, in gorgeous condition and was a beautiful, silk dress. It was shipped quickly and the packaging was lovely.

  The bad news: It did not arrive on time for my Anniversary. Well, to be fair it would have been there on time if I was home when the USPS stopped by for my signature. Unfortunately, I am a busy mama and I am not usually home when my mail is delivered. If I had known, I would have made sure I was home to sign, or would have signed it digitally online. For some reason, I didnt notice that it was signature required in the shipping info. So, to be really fair it is my fault that the dress was not at my house in time for my dinner.  

However, I still got to wear it. Just not for my 13th Anniversary.  I ordered a beautiful Black silk dress from Flavio Castellini, which retails for $520 retail. I was given a $100 rental budget for the purposes of this review, and this dress fit well into that at $70 for five days. I extended the rental to 10 days for $95 and I was good to go!! What a great deal. Want to know more about this fab rental company?

Here is the info from the rental page of the dress:

"This piece is just too cute and so unique! Featuring a low rise elastic waistband with ruffle layered skirt bottom, and low cut showing cleavage with ruffles going down right chest towards left waist. Perfect for a fun night out!

Note: Dress runs big

Color: Black
Fabric: 100% silk"

Ok, So....I should probably have paid better attention to the Note, as I ordered a size 6  and it was way too big on top for me. I had to fold in the ruffles on top so my cleavage did not hang entirely out. I am a size 4-6 but sometimes my D Cups scare me into buying(and in this case renting) a dress a size bigger.  Well, this one fit them!!  The silk was soft and lovely and I loved the length, short and flirty!!I paired this cute dress with a simple pair of BCBG heels and was ready to go out and par-tay!!

Important Info:

  • Designer dresses are available for rent from over 100 different designers in sizes 00-16 
  • Dresses are rented for 5 day periods, (with extensions available) 
  • Insurance and dry cleaning are included

So from my rental experience??

The good: Easy to navigate website, quick shipping, Easy transaction and loads of choices. Beautiful quality, affordable rental. Great extension of time.

The bad: Did not arrive on time for my event due to having to sign for the package, and not being home. Ordered the dress in a 6, I am a 4-6 and it was definitely too big on top. I had to hold it closed and tuck it so my bra did not hang out. I didnt notice the note about the dress running big, so definitely read the fine print!
