I’m a sucker for exploring new spots in the city, especially in Over-the-Rhine, so when I stumbled across a new storefront on Walnut, I was super excited to check it out.
It’s a dress rental boutique, so instead of buying fabulous designer dresses in store, you can rent them for a short period of time.
Sound familiar? Though I love Rent the Runway, I hate that I can’t try on the dresses in person. Yes, they’ve been starting to create showrooms, but only in bigger cities… which means if I order a dress and hate how it fits, I’m just wasting money. (And nobody’s got time for that!)
Finery offers Cincinnati residents access to contemporary designer dresses – like Saylor, Yumi Kim, Likely and Greylin – for a fraction of the cost! Like this red beauty: retails for $215, rents for only $60. Did someone say holiday party?
Most of the dresses at Finery rent for $60 or less, with rental prices ranging from $25 to $100. The standard dress rental period is four days, but you can rent longer for an additional fee. And while you’re able to rent Finery’s dresses on the spot, it’s recommended to reserve your dress in advance… just in case someone else falls in love with it.
And don’t forget the accessories… because no outfit is complete without a little bling! Finery offers some beautiful baubles, like these:
I’ll definitely be back to scope out holiday party options – and you should, too! And be sure to follow Finery on Instagram for their latest inventory. Happy renting! 🙂
