Why Rent When You Can Own?

My DVF dress on Rent the Runway 
I had mentioned a while back that I had scored a black DVF cocktail dress for $77 on massive sale at Bloomie's.  Well, I just wanted to take a moment to gloat, because I was perusing Rent the Runway, and came across the same dress for rent (I will discuss RTR in another post).  The rental price was $50.  So for $27 more, I actually get to own this dress, and wear it as many times as I want, while the less savvy masses are paying $50 to wear it once.  Because, clearly, the masses are going on RTR to rent this dress.  I feel validated and just wanted to share.  But there is a lesson here--if you're contemplating renting one of the lower-end dresses on RTR, do a quick online search, because you may be able to buy that dress on sale for close to the rental price!
