I Rented the Runway

I was flipping through the InStyle November 2011 issue and I saw an eye-catching gold dress that Selena Gomez wore with a long white side tail/sash. Then I noticed that it was from Rent the Runway, so I was reminded of the  $100 credit from Jean's giveaway I won last year. So, I just spent 2 hours picking out a rental designer dress for my Winter Formal. Luckily the code still works! 

So after all was said and done, my dress is rented for 4 days in size 0 and 2 (the second size is free!) and I am ready to rock my senior year on the dance floor. I also got 20 zig zag Upsie Daisie Clothing Adhesives for $10. Shipping was $7.95 and they pay for the return. They also charge $5 insurance for the dress. The grand total? $97.95 0.00 thanks to the amazing gift code! Hopefully I won't trip all over the sash xD

If you're interested in Rent the Runway, here's an invite link. If you sign up using this, I get $20 credit and would like you very, very much.

And the winner is:
Mikade Gold Sash Dress | Designer: Erin by Erin Fetherston | $75 rental | $595 retail
Runner-up that wasn't available during my formal:
Malia Tulle Sequin Gown | Designer: BCBGMAXAZRIA | $100 rental | $595 retail
There are a lot of other interesting options, and JJ really liked the gowns and other unique cuts. Check out these insane retail prices. Obviously you can see I am into sequins this season (Express has some nice but pricey sequin holiday dresses).
