Here’s my really real experience with Rent the Runway…
My fiance and I had the opportunity to go to the Purple Gala celebrating the Minnesota Vikings and the team’s new stadium for Chase’s work — a black tie optional event. When I heard that, I knew immediately I had nothing to wear. And not in the *looking at a million dresses in my closet while saying, “I have nothing to wear,” under my breath* kind of way. For a dinner this fancy, I actually had nothing to wear. THAT‘S when Rent the Runway saved the day.
I was able to wear this stunning Monique Lhuillier dress for a small fraction of what the dress costs. Rent the Runway sent the dress in my size and in a second size for free to ensure the perfect fit. I’ve also heard from friends who have rented dresses before that if neither dress size you order works with your body, the Rent the Runway team will overnight you another option in time for your event.
So, I wore the dress to the gala last night, felt amazing in it and then dropped off both dresses at UPS on my way home for free. That’s it… No dry cleaning required, AND I didn’t have to splurge on a dress I’ll only wear once. How awesome is that? I’m already plotting my next excuse to rent.

Although it may be too casual for my office, I accentuated the romper’s effortless spirit with wedges and a denim jacket for a […]

Because life is always better when you have flowers in your hair. Today, I wanted to share a few more photos from my collaboration with Elizabeth Carrie Photography. I’m obsessed with her work (as you’ve probably noticed), but I especially love how much Elizabeth cares about the details. She even took the time to make me a flower […]
I wanted a structured A-line skirt, and it had to be pink. I ended up with a floral one with accordion pleats that I love. Honestly, I can be a little stubborn, especially when it comes to shopping. But I’ve realized sometimes it’s better to be open to other options so I don’t leave empty-handed when looking for […]
