The SF Rent the Runway Flagship Store + RTR Unlimited

The exterior and sign of the SF Rent the Runway Flagship Store

Say hello to the SF Rent the Runway Flagship Store!

This is the Largest RTR store to date and conveniently located in the heart of union square (two doors down from the big Banana Republic store). If you look up you will find Rent the Runway signage, but it does not have a street entrance. Look for the office building at 228 Grant Street, between Sutter and Post Street and you are there! Head up to the second floor and find more than 8,000 square feet of fashion. The store is two floors, with more than 3,000 pieces of clothing and accessories and more than 20 fitting rooms. Highlights for me included the work and lounge spaces with free WiFI, self-service check-out, and drop-off stations (because I’m always in a rush) and the instant service pick-up window.

Now let’s chat about RTR Unlimited

I just joined and I’m pretty sure that this is going to be a serious game changer for me.
How it works?
You select 4 styles (either online or at one of the five stores). I have the 4 style membership, but you can upgrade to additional styles. Keep your 4 styles as long as you want and exchange them at any time. Choose from any combination of dresses, clothing, and accessories. RTR Unlimited members have access to just about everything on the site, some exclusions may apply.

When you’re ready for something new, return 1, 2, 3 or all of your items using the prepaid UPS return label provided, and they’ll notify you when it’s time to select your next shipment. While selecting new items, you will also have the option to add Extra Spots to your Unlimited plan…and I pretty much feel like I’m on that path because I want EVERYTHING.

Once you confirm your RTR Unlimited shipment, it will take one business day to process before your order is shipped.

If you have an item at home you really love, you can use an exclusive members-only discount to purchase it for a fraction of the retail price. Once you do, a spot opens up for something new. In addition to the membership items on rotation, you also will have a 25% discount on RTR Reserve rentals.

You can pause your membership or cancel your next auto-renewal anytime.


Now for the answer to the most important question:

What happens if I lose or damage an RTR Unlimited piece? 

Because we all know that the chances of me losing or damaging is high.

Your membership fee includes insurance for minor mishaps and general wear and tear.

Significant damage, lost pieces and theft are not covered. In those cases, you will be charged the price to purchase the piece using your members-only discount. In the event that the style is not available to purchase, the charge will be for the full retail price, plus applicable tax.

So it looks like you should be EXTRA careful with you RTR Unlimited pieces! I chose 2 handbags today and as I was checking out they told me that each bag has a dust bag in it and if I lose the dust bag an extra $35 will be billed to my account!

What I’m snagging with my RTR Unlimited membership


Three Pieces of Jewelry for Single Ladies

Where my single ladies at?

I know I’m not the only one out here struggling to get my jewelry on every time I get dressed. My long pointy nails and inability to ever be on time (insert me rushing with clammy hands) makes putting on jewelry a SERIOUS SINGLE LADY STRUGGLE.

Now I normally don’t mind being single (because I’ve been single for so long) and frankly, I enjoy being alone…until it is time to get ready and you can’t zip up my dress and get my jewelry on. Am I Right? Imagine me sitting on the ground totally defeated half dressed and sweaty.

My everyday jewelry used to consist of just layered rings and diamond studs in my ears until the team at Gorjana sent me a gift card to celebrate their San Francisco store opening. I’ve worn Gorjana pieces in the past and have always loved them, but struggled with the clasps on the pieces that I own. I always want to wear layers of necklaces, but the thought of struggling to put three necklaces on by myself would always stop me from trying to make it happen.

So the team at Gorjana sent me a $150 gift card and upon its arrival I immediately got on the website. I was beyond pleased to find several adjustable pieces on their website and promptly ordered them. These pieces arrived and to my delight easily went on to my wrist and neck without any struggle! Adjustable by Gorjana means no clasp, no fuss, and all the layered jewels without any single lady struggles!

So I present to you: Three Pieces of Jewelry for Single Ladies

Three Pieces of Jewelry for Single Ladies

1. Chloe Adjustable Necklace $75

Looking for the perfect versatile necklace? The Chloe Adjustable Necklace can be worn 7 different ways! The delicate chain features hammered discs and can be customized to wear as a long necklace, short necklace, wrapped necklace, lariat, choker, or even backward. Style as a solo statement or layer with other gold necklaces. I layered it with the Mosiac Necklace from Gorjana above. I love the style of the Mosiac Necklace, but the evil clasp makes it hard to put on solo.

2. Amara Adjustable Bracelet $65

This sparkling bracelet with baguette-cut details offers a touch of modern elegance with an adjustable closure. No clasp! This bracelet is SO easy to put on and shines standing alone or stacked.

3. Chloe Small Adjustable Bracelet $50

Delicate discs in their classic Chloe texture accent this adjustable piece. Perfect to wear alone or layer with your other jewels. This is from the same collection as the necklace (above) and pairs perfectly with the Amara bracelet.

Beauty: Should you spend $399 on the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer?

First things first let’s just be real here and talk about how my good friends at Dyson gave me this hair dryer. So NO, I did not spend $399 on the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer.

And can we also take a moment to talk about all the awful things I have done to my hair:

Exhibit A: That one time I thought that My Little Pony hair was appropriate.

Exhibit B: BLUE HAIR. The worst thing I have ever done to my hair.

Snag the Dyson Supersonic at up to a 20% off discount until 5/6

Ok, now that we’ve established that I hate my hair let’s chat about this $399 hair dryer. If you are like me every other hair dryer in your life came from Target and was never over $50 – so the thought of dropping almost four hundred dollars on a hair dryer sounds kind of crazy – BUT after spending three wonderful months with this hair dryer,  I would 100% drop $400 of my hard earned dollars on this hair dryer.

WHY?

  • It has intelligent heat control technology, which helps prevent extreme heat damage to protect hair’s natural shine (lord knows I’ve done enough damage on my own).
  • The digital motor is on average six times faster, a third of the weight, and half the size of other hair dryer motors. WHAT does this mean for me? I can dry my hair in 5 minutes, it doesn’t kill my arm and it is oh-so-easy to travel with.
  • 3 magnetic attachments make styling a DREAM. The smoothing nozzle uses smooth, wide air for a sleek finish, while the styling concentrator is for precise styling. The diffuser (not for me) disperses air evenly around curls to gently dry hair and improve definition.
  • It is AWARD WINNING. The Dyson Supersonic is an Allure Best of Beauty award winner and an Allure Reader’s Choice award winner.

Is this not the most attractive hair dryer you have ever seen?

“If you know anything about me, you know I’m a lover of innovation and new technology, and the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer is just that. The motor is much smaller, but still very powerful, so I can dry hair quickly and it feels light in my hand. Plus, the aesthetic is so gorgeous.”—Jen Atkin, Celebrity Hair Stylist
