(Rent the Runway) July 2017 + LeTote: To Party or Not!

I’ve been having a lot of fun this summer. It’s been work + play. See what I’ve been wearing from my Rent the Runway, LeTote and Rocksbox rentals below!

Giamba Black Pleated Side Swept Dress  (RTW). Retail: $1,032.50

 


So sophisticated! You may think I went to a party, but… I went to various Father’s Day events with my husband, including to a brewery tasting. I got all of the compliments that day! I love, Love, LOVE this dress. The pleats are gorgeous, the asymmetrical shoulders are interesting and the tea length and flow of the dress is just plain ole fun. The dress is very comfortable to wear and easy to dress up or down. I would love to rent this one again!

Noir Metallic Jacquard Dress (LT).  Retail: $120


 
I read somewhere (can’t remember where) that it’s appropriate to repurpose the party dress for work… that a lot of dresses are super formal and, given the money that we pay for them, we need to extend the wear.  I’m renting this dress from Le Tote, but want to maximize my subscription, so here I am — wearing this sparkly dress to work.  I received SO MANY COMPLIMENTS that I know this is the right thing to do.   I dressed down by pairing with ballet flats and a cropped black jacket.  The bow tie front is very feminine, and it fit perfectly within the V of my jacket, just like I planned it 🙂

Ava Fabric Ball Necklace  (LT). Retail: $45

Ball necklaces like this are so trendy right now!  It’s tricky pairing this with outfits, but I found a simple solid yellow Spring top to showcase the necklace.  The striped black and white balls are the highlight of the piece. So out of the box for me, but I love it!

 

Derek Lam White Embroidered Shirt Dress (RTR). Retail: $1,495

 

I was nervous to wear this shirt dress to work… wasn’t sure how the fabric would hold up with me getting up and down all day. I thought for sure that I’d be a wrinkled mess by the time I got home. The pics here are after work! No real problem with wrinkles. The dress is totally appropriate for work and I felt like I just came off the runway wearing it. LOVE!

Tory Burch Tiered Ruffled Garden Party Top  (RTR).  Retail: $395

This top is so femininely sweet! I wore this to brunch and someone shouted a compliment across the parking lot! The top is complicated, but very light for hot summer days. It goes nicely with light and dark bottoms.  The ruffled straps are too cute!  Wish I could have kept this, but… I CAN RENT anytime I want!
