WINK! I mean how cute is this sequins eyelash inspired dress? While in Chicago I attended what I personally believe to be the best summer event in Chicago, BLU at Shedd Aquarium where I wore this sequins mini. My husband and I ( and a few of our friends) have been attending the same event for the past 5 years and knowing I would be seeing some familiar faces I wanted to wear a new dress yet wasn’t ready to invest on a new piece and opted out for renting this dress, yes I said RENT this dress from Rent the Runway. RTR offers the most amazing collection of dresses for either a black tie event, cocktail and everyday occasions. Dresses start as low as $30 for a 4 day rental and can go as high as $600. I know what many of you are thinking! What about size and fit? When shopping online I’m always concern about how things will fit me and RTR has come up with the smartes solution, they will actually send you a backup size. I usually order a 4 and a 6 as my backup size. For those of you in Chicago you can now visit their Chicago store location for a more personal experience. Have any of you tried Rent the Runway before? I would love to hear your experiences!


El fin de semana pasado mientras estaba en Chicago mi esposo y unos amigos fuimos a una de las mejores fiestas de Chicago, al evento del Shedd Aquarium. Queria usar un vestido nuevo pero a la mima vez no estaba lista para invertir en un nuevo vestido así que rente este vestido de lentejuelas por la pagina Rent the Runway. Si, lo leyeron bien! Lo RENTE! Rent the Runway ofrece todo tipo de vestidos para rentar, desde vestidos para un evento de gala, cocktail o simplemente vestidos diarios. Uno puede rentar vestidos por 4 días costando $30 hasta $600. Se que algunos de ustedes debe estar pensando sobre como se aseguran si el vestido les va a quedar. Y RTR les manda el mismo vestido en dos diferentes tallas para asegurarse que uno de esas tallas les quede. Para los que están en Chicago pueden ir a visitar la tienda y tener una experience mas personal o abajo pueden ver mis vestidos preferidos de Rent the Runway. Gracias por leer y saludos desde Washington DC.

  • I’ve always had Rent the Runway in mind as an option but I have yet to find a dress I liked for my occasion. I always ended up finding something in stores. This is a very cute dress!
