New Yorkers can get just about anything delivered on-demand. Aside from typical requests such as last-minute flowers, froyo and Chipotle burritos, the fashion realm has decided jump on the same-day delivery bandwagon too. And this is a huge win for any Gothamite who gets anxiety from shopping in NYC.
Fans of Rent the Runway—a high-end dress rental brand, which also offers accessories for you to rock on loan—just launched a same-day delivery option to remedy any fashion emergencies. Ladies, we've all been there: Spill hot coffee all over your crotch? Rip your dress on the way to work? Forgot to pack a sexy getup for your hot date after work?
Thanks to Rent the Runway, you never have to worry about wardrobe malfunctions—or being a messy eater—ever again. All you have to do is go to the Rent the Runway website, select the Same-Day NYC tab, choose one of the many designer dresses, jumpsuits and accessories available, and the loot will be delivered to you anywhere in Manhattan before 5pm that day.
The only catch is that you must order before noon to get same-day delivery—and, oh, there's a $9.95 delivery fee. However, since you can rent more than 2,000 damn cute designer dresses, tops, jewels and handbags for as low as $30, we think this is still a pretty decent deal. Plus, it saves you the time and energy of making a trek to a fast-fashion chain store. Call us lazy, but prefer to use the term “efficient.”
