(Rent the Runway) May 2017 +LeTote: Punta Cana Outfits

Back from my beach vacation in Punta Cana, D.R.!  Sad to be back, but happy to share some of the outfits that I wore out to dinner at the resort.  Also,  see other items I rented this month from Rent the Runway and LeTote.


Josie Natori Printed Tribal Halter Dress (RTW). Retail: $695

 

This dress was perfect for my trip to Punta Cana.  I wore it with wedge heels to dinner one night. I really like the print on the dress — very appropriate for the tropical setting.  Overall, the dress fit well on me, but the halter strings in the front wouldn’t lay flat… a little irritating, but no one noticed.  This one is definitely a repeat rental!

Noir Printed Harem Pants (LT).  Retail: $60

 

Another dinner outfit that I wore in the D.R. These pants were thin, airy, comfortable and worked well for the occasion.  The solid stripe detail going down the side of the pant make them a little dressier for an evening out. 

Nina Ricci Red Ruched Marisa Dress (RTW).  Retail: $2,690

I wanted to dress up for Mother’s Day this year. Kevin, my husband, took me to a pricey brunch and it was fun to dress the part!  I liked wearing this crinkly dress and got several compliments about it.  A big positive…. Red is my color and I love the brightness of the dress!  A big negative… with the drapes and the seam in the middle, the dress makes me look fatter than I really am.  Not sure that I would rent this one again…

MSGM Blue Striped Ruffle Dress (RTR). Retail: $705

This is another item that I rented for the D.R. trip.  Wow!  Loved it!  Wore it out to dinner and dancing at the disco on the resort. It’s a great dress to dance in because it moves so easily. The ruffle at the top of the dress was a little hard to figure out… it’s not one whole pieces and I had to figure out how to lay them in a way that made sense, but I did it!  Loved wearing these with the bowtie sandals. Perfect for dancing.

Marni Olive Branch Dress (RTR).  Retail: $1,570

If you’ve been following my journey, you know that I love the Marni brand! I rent something from this brand at least twice a month.  I loved this dress for work.  With the weather turning, I wore a tan blazer over this in the morning and in the office and was able to layer down after work. The asymmetrical pleats in the front make the dress really fun to wear — lots of fabric at the bottom that really moves when you do.  

Marni Grey Sideswept Hem Dress (RTR). Retail: $1,297 

Marni!  A nice casual, fun dress that I wore running errands. It’s like sweatshirt material, so it’s fairly fabric. Nice for cooler weather and you can layer with a jean jacket if you need to.  I definitely wasn’t disappointed with this rental!
