This past weekend was my husband’s work Christmas party and being a busy mama of 3, and with everything else I have on the go this holiday season, finding something cute to wear unfortunately wasn’t at the top of my priority list. I left it until the last minute (typical) and was not feeling brave enough to venture out to the mall this time of year to try things on with all three kiddos in tow, “hoping” I might find something. Then I remembered my friends over at STMNT who rent out clothing, and I e-mailed Jenessa on Wednesday night asking if she had anything that may work for me to wear to this event. From her very first e-mail back to me until returning the items this evening, it was honestly the most incredible and seamless experience. After giving her my size, and some details about the event and dress code, Jenessa was SO amazing and was genuinely excited to help me out! She vividly described why she thought 4 different dresses, along with some other accessories would be perfect options for what I was looking for and she attached images of the dresses as well. The next day, we met up for me to try them on and 10 minutes later, I had the perfect outfit – club monoco dress, the most beautiful fur coat, and a cute, festive coach clutch, all for 25% of the retail price!
If you haven’t heard of STMNT, it was started by two London local babes with a passion for the environment and self expression through clothing. Local fashionista’s can wear their dream dress for their event while saving cash! But here’s the other cool part, you can also rent out your OWN too-nice-to-wear-twice dresses and earn some side hustle cash! It’s a way to make money off of the items in your wardrobe, save money while still having killer style and is a form of responsible consumption! And if you’re not local to London, fear not!! They plan on expanding to surrounding cities and the GTA area sooooon!!!
STMNT is launching their website THIS week so stay tuned! But if you need a cute new outfit to wear over the holidays and don’t want to spend the $$ to purchase a brand new dress you know you’ll only wear once, head over to their IG page and shoot them an e-mail. They’ll hook you up!
I will definitely be renting from them again in the future!!! Thanks so much for reading you guys!
