After award shows, I always find myself scrolling through pictures of celebrities, drooling over their incredible designer gowns, shoes, and accessories. For example, the Billboard Music Awards were this past Sunday, and I am still dying over these amazing looks:
I know this may shock you, but I don’t have a Jimmy Choo clutch that I carry around while running errands like Hayden. What’s even more shocking is that I also dont have a Zuhair Murad gown, like Emmy Rossum’s, hanging in my closet for my next awards show. In fact, the closest thing I have to that is my BCBG dress that I wore to senior prom. And, let’s be honest, there’s a good chance that it wouldn’t even zip now. I know, I know… Sad life. I say all of this to point out that a woman needs a little bit of fabulous in her life every once and a while. However, a woman also needs money in her life to pay for food, rent, and gas, which usually doesn’t leave a whole lot left for fabulous. First world problems.
Enter: Rent the Runway. RTR is SUCH an amazing website that houses a collection of designer dresses and accessories for women to rent for special events, weddings, and photo sessions. Okay, maybe I added the “photo sessions” part, but it’s my blog and I do what I want. For example, if you’re on the hunt for the perfect dress(es) to wear for your engagement session, you could rent from RTR to feel a little more fancy than that Target dress you were planning on wearing. Not that I’m hating on Target… I promise it’s my favorite. Here are a few amazing dresses available on RTR:
Perfect for an engagement session!
And how amazing would one of these stunners be for a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner?!
While the dresses on Rent the Runway are amazing, I really think my favorites are their accessories! I remember planning what jewelry I would wear on my wedding day, and with not much left in the budget, I didn’t want to splurge on expensive designer jewelry. If only I had known about RTR, I definitely would have been sporting some awesome bling! Here are some of my favorite accessories they have available for rent:
You may be a bride on a budget, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a little fanciness and luxury… You ARE the bride, afterall. :)
