Summer is still in full-swing here in the D. And with it, tons of unexpected last-minute plans keep popping up onto our social calendar. While it's great to check out new restaurants, concerts in the park and networking events - it can be hard to keep up a fresh summer wardrobe without spending a fortune. Because as Andrew knows, us women like to have something new for every occasion! We wouldn't be caught dead in the same look twice! Well, let me introduce you to my secret solution...Rent The Runway.
I've invested in the unlimited membership each month, which allows me to rent 4 pieces at a time. This level also allows an unlimited number of trades for 4 new pieces each month. I've worked the plan so I can rotate my wardrobe rentals each week. By the time those weekend plans arrive, I receive a new shipment full of new stuff. I can rock a new top with my favorite jeans, or style a dress with my go-to heels. In the end, the investment is definitely worth the cost because it allows me to wear designer options for one event, and ship it back for free when I'm done!
This striped sailor-inspired dress has been one of my favorite rentals thus far. It looks really cute when set against the Detroit River. The bold, crisp blue and white striped fabric lays beautifully! The strap detailing and off-the-shoulder touch is a fun, modern twist on a circle dress. I styled the belt to define my waist, and added a pair of platform wedges to elongate my frame a bit. The finishing touch was adding my favorite bucket bag from Ferne Boutique. This is a great look for date night, a networking event in the city, or a fun outdoor concert - even a bridal/baby shower!
