The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is taking the fictional Pawnee shop Rent-A-Swag to a whole new level as it opens the first West Coast showroom for the very real Rent The Runway on Dec. 27.

The designer boutique provides same-day rental of a curated selection of dresses and accessories from more than 190 designers including Badgley Mischka, Halston Heritage and RVN.

Even better, it’s opening just in time for New Year’s Eve.

“Las Vegas is one of the only places on earth where it’s not only appropriate but pretty much required to wear something outrageous every night of the year,” said Jennifer Hyman, chief executive officer and co-founder of Rent The Runway.

Located on the second level of The Cosmopolitan, Rent The Runway will feature fashionable floor-length gowns, sweet silhouettes and sequined cocktail dresses in sizes 0 to 22.

Rental prices range from $50 to $450, making it a great way to dress to the nines without totally breaking the bank.

The store will be open Monday through Saturday from 1 to 10 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 9 p.m. Walk-ins are encouraged. Dresses may be returned directly at Rent The Runway or via a pre-paid mailing envelope.

“It’s an innovative way to make a night even more special for Las Vegas, locals and visitors,” said Lisa Marchese, chief marketing officer of The Cosmopolitan. “Imagine a spectacular dress for every night of your visit without the commitment.”

As Haverford might say, “Treat yo’ self!”

Yes, I’m from Las Vegas. But I’d like to clarify a few things: I don’t live in a hotel and I’m not a showgirl. I put my pasties on one nipple at a time, just like everyone else. I’m a regular girl who plunges off the side of ridiculously tall Las Vegas landmarks and writes about it for a living. I also ride roller coasters, hang at the spa, shoot holes in zombies and take art lessons from bottlenose dolphins. You know, normal stuff. My career as a journalist and copywriter has led me out of Vegas and around the world, but the 24/7 normality of Las Vegas sucks me back in every time. Am I oblivious to the plethora of slot machines everywhere I go? Sure. But that’s because I’m distracted by all the pretty lights. Follow me on Google+ and Twitter.
