Are you fashionista Long Island bride?  If so, imagine walking into a thrift store only to find gently used designer fashion on the clearance rack.   Well, ladies, there’s a virtual sale going on at Rent the Runway, the designer  dress and accessory rental site, right now.   There are more than 100 styles available for purchase from designers such as Matthew Williamson, Proenza Schouler, Lela Rose, Catherine Malandrino, Halston Heritage, Helmut Lang and Badgley Mischka.   Clearance prices are for up to 65% off retail.  (In addition to dresses, accessories are available for purchase from top jewelry designers Janis Savitt, Dannijo and Kara Ross.)  Here’s an example of what you might find for sale:  Proenza Schouler’s color block cocktail dress which retailed for $2080, is on the clearance rack here for $450!

Keep this in mind as you browse:  these items have been worn, so they will be marked online as like new, missing sequins/beads, fabric fading, picked/pulled and/or missing a belt so online consumers are aware of each dress’ condition.
