When cash-strapped, label-loving ladies around the nation realize they have like, seriously nothing to wear for Friday’s fancy party, Rent the Runway has been known to save the day. The online luxury dress borrowing service will soon offer IRL solutions to LA’s closet conundrums when it opens its first west coast store at The Village at Westfield Topanga this weekend.

Following shops in New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Washington, DC, the LA boutique will offer dress and special occasion rentals from luxe labels like Marchesa, Badgley Mischa, Cynthia Rowley, Monique Lhuillier, and many more. Services will include one-on-one styling, online order pick-up and exchanges, and more. Guests can book an appointment online, select their favorite styles, and have their picks ready for try-ons when they arrive.

For a $25 fee, shoppers can also fill out a style profile (which includes their body type, size, and fit preferences) online and try on recommendations and accessories handpicked by a personal stylist. (The service is also available for free on a walk-in basis.)

The space will also house high-tech fitting rooms, where shoppers can save their picks on iPad Minis for future rentals. After you’ve found The One, you can take the goods home with you or have them mailed to you on a specific date.

Excited? Rent the Runway’s throwing a grand opening bash this Saturday from 10am to 9pm. Swing by all day for mini makeovers by Blushington, hair styling by Drybar, healthy sips from Pressed Juicery, bites from Sweetfin Poke, sweet treats from Bon Puf and Susie Cakes Bakery, and much more. There’ll also be free YogaWorks classes outside; get more details at the event’s Facebook page here.
