Closet Economics: How RTR Changed This R29 Fashion Editor’s Finances

November 6, 2019

Welcome to our new finance-focused series, Closet Economics, where we get real about the real cost of getting dressed. We’ve asked RTR Unlimited members to share how much they’ve spent and saved on clothes and clothing care before and after joining Rent the Runway.

For our first-ever episode of Closet Economics, Refinery29 deputy fashion editor and longtime Rent the Runway member Jessica Andrews took us on a tour of her (impressively color-coordinated) closet and reveals the impact RTR has on her finances.

“Since I joined RTR Unlimited, my spending habits have changed so much,” Andrews says. “I shop a lot less, which is also great for the environment. I’ve been able to reallocate that budget toward things I really care about, whether it’s taking trips, experiences, or gifts for my family. I have a lot more money now that I’m not shopping every weekend.”
