A guest post and what I wore...

This week my sweet friend Sarah invited me over to do a guest post on… you guessed it, cloth diapering.  This is actually one of the most thorough posts I have done on why we chose cloth, you should check it out… and her blog :)

And… Andrew and I went to a formal! Now recently, in my effort to get rid of stuff and simplify, I donated and sold around 8 bridesmaid dresses and a handful of formal dresses… some that have been hanging around since I was a freshman in high school (circa 2001, I know I am old...).  It just felt like too much having all those dresses around that I knew I didn't want to wear again.  So as I was looking through my closet to pick something to wear I thought this might be a good time to try rent the runway!  
So glad I did!  I rented this awesome one shoulder Shoshanna purple dress for our Mardi Gras themed event.  The cool thing was I was able to look at other people wearing the dress, what size and height they were, so I had an idea about what sizes to get (and they send you two:)).  I also got to talk to a "personal stylist" (feel so fancy saying that) to double check on the fit for my build and I wanted to check and make sure she thought it would be modest :).
It was fun, and easy. I also feel like it was not wasteful, as I know others will get a chance to wear the dress again, it was fairly inexpensive and I will not be putting another dress in my closet to gather dust!  
Another friend who rented a dress for the night!

What about you?  Have you tried rent the runway? Do you think its worth it?

Have you followed me on Instagram,Facebook, or Twitter yet?

    1. It was really great! So easy and I don't think I have ever worn such a nice dress with the exception of my wedding dress!
