The joy of escaping to Miami in the middle of winter 🏖💃🏾 OK so I tried @renttherunway Closet Concierge for #ArtBasel this year — and I have to say I’m obsessed! 🥰 I ordered my Rent The Runway lewks straight to @whotels in Miami & only traveled w a small carry-on. 🧳 When I got to the room, this dress was already there waiting for me. 😩 At check out, I just returned everything at the front desk and left. ✌🏾💨 What is a checked baggage fee? I don’t know her. 😂 #notanad 🎥: @lexiwiththecurls . . . . . #linkinbio #linkinstory #travelnoire #travel #travelpics #miami #southbeach #melanin
Running from December 5 to March 5, Closet Concierge is currently available at W South Beach, W Aspen, W Washington D.C., and W Hollywood with plans to expand. It allows travelers to rent 4 pieces (for $69 USD) and have them shipped directly to the aforementioned hotel of their choice. Not only can you choose from the entire Unlimited closet, you can select pieces from a curated assortment from Rent The Runway editors, based on trends, popular designers, and the current climate at your destination. The new feature aims to transform "the way our guests pack and dress as they travel," Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader at W Hotels said in a press release. "Skipping the packing process is a whole new level of luxury for our guests and is yet another surprising way we continue to reinvent hospitality.”
About my packing process: I traveled solely with a purse and my backpack. Flatter than ever, my long-suffering backpack held only 2 pairs of shoes, a few toiletries (like Glossier lip balm, Supergoop sunscreen, and a ton of hair gel), intimates, and 2 swimsuits. I didn't even bother bringing my carry-on luggage this time, which did throw me for a loop because I'm just so used to lugging it around. I kept randomly thinking I was forgetting something — but no, just a girl and her backpack and purse on a 3-hour flight to Miami. It took some adjusting to, for sure, but I felt more lighthearted and free than I ever have traveling. Also, what is a checked baggage fee? I don't know her.
