Holiday party season is rapidly approaching and for a lot of women, that means going out to buy the newest party dress fashions.
That can set you back hundreds, even thousands of dollars.
Houston fashion and design blogger Beth Delozier checked out a new alternative that allows you to be dressed your best without breaking the bank. It's a store called New for the Night.
"The concept is to let you rent the newest fashions for a fraction of the cost," store general manager Shireen Hadi told Delozier. "Our rental prices are about 10 to 20 per cent of the retail cost of a dress. For a dress that costs $700, the rental would be around $80."
The rental cost gets you the dress for three days. You pick it up and return it, and the store worries about the dry cleaning after you bring it back.
Hadi, who is also a buyer for the store, said they stock the latest fashions and eventually sell off dresses as new styles develop.
You can place orders online or come into the store to get help in picking out that perfect party dress.
New for the Night is located at 3209 Westheimer, just west of Kirby.
