What to Wear Wednesdays
Stylist Secret Source
wonderful gown for only $150 rental by Badgley Mischka
I’ve had clients tell me they have opted out of parties simply because they didn’t have something to wear. It’s really a shame – after all, you never know who you might have met at that party! I can understand that investing in a formal dress may not be high on the priority list, especially in this economy. I also know that for those who do splurge on sparkly party frocks, 90% of the time they hang in your closet, unworn forever after the occasion. Such a waste, right?!
Prabal Gurung off the shoulder style for pear shape $275 rental
So I offer you a wonderful solution: rent a dress from Rent The Runway
. They offer plenty of options to choose from along with express shipping. My favorite feature is that you can search dresses by body shape – an amazing tool! This used to be a service only offered to industry professionals but now is marketed to consumers. So what are you waiting for???
All pics are from Rent The Runway.com
Also worth checking out is the edgy site (most clothing looks like it’s from Lady Gaga’s closet) L’armoire du styliste who ships internationally, Wear Today Gone Tomorrow (prom-like option), Nolita’s version Ilus, Frock Shop out of Chicago. Lending Luxury is another website based in Florida – their styles area bit skimpier.
