It's that time again: Perusing Rent the Runway's clearance sale

Look, I was going to let this slide past the blog because I've admitted to having a problem with Rent the Runway, and I'm trying to be better.

But Rent the Runway's annual annual clearance sale, the one where you can purchase (used) designer gear in two-figure territory instead of just renting it, is still going on.

And "Prices Have Dropped." At least, that's what their email blast says — and surely it wasn't a very clever but highly manipulative lie to make me click through and look around.

Because I care about you, I've pulled a few faves (they're also in the slideshow):

$63 Rebecca Taylor lavender dress

$75 Slate & Willow glistening hi-lo dress

$54 Yoana Baraschi silver sign dress (more plus sizes!) (same style is $63 for sizes 0-12)

$74 Trina Turk Pantheon gown -- black-tie wedding this fall? This one might be for you.

$76 Nicole Miller fiery red lace mini -- Deal Diva Lisa wore this for NYE.

Point being, most of the looks are totally wearable.

Here's the exception, and for $525, we're not really crying about it.

Dresses are in "like-new" condition, says RTR. And they're final sale. This sale probably works best for a buyer like Lisa, who knows exactly what size looks great on her in a dress she's already rented.

If the no-returns policy is too scary (and some stuff with RTR just doesn't fit as advertised, as my friends and I can attest), there are a lot of cute accessories for sale, too.
