Instead of receiving dresses through the mail, Rent the Runway has made it even easier for Washington's women to get dolled up for inauguration. The online dress rental company is bringing hundreds of dresses to LivingSocial's 918 F Street pop-up location from Jan. 11 to 13. Tickets cost $8.

Rent the Runway President and Co-founder Jennifer Fleiss says the company will bring looks that are Michelle Obama-inspired, as well as dresses from D.C.'s favorite designers. "There's in particular some Tracy Reese dresses, one that [Obama] wore for the Democratic National Convention ... and a couple of others that we feel like really resemble items that she's worn in the past," Fleiss said. Lots of Badgley Mischka, Nicole Miller and BCBGMAXAZRIA will be available too, as they are D.C.'s top rented designers.

In addition, dresses rented through the pop-up shop with be 20 percent off the regular online price.
