I just discovered this new site called Rent the Runway. At first I wasn't sure how fond I was of renting a dress online, without ever wearing it or seeing it in person, but I like how you can pick 2 sizes for them to send you, and if you don't wear it, you don't have to pay. I can't wait to use it for my husband's Christmas party.
