Look What I Got Link Up: Rent the Runway Dress




 Dress-Opening Ceremony via Rent the Runway, Necklace-Forever 21 (similar), Pumps-Andres Machado

This past Saturday we attended a wedding reception for my friends' in Upstate NY. (The actual ceremony was the week prior and only close family was invited). I decided to rent another dress from Rent the Runway, since I loved the first one I rented (you can see that dress here). If you're not familiar with Rent the Runway, it's a site that allows you to rent designer dresses and accessories for a fraction of the cost. 

Sign up for Rent the Runway using my referral link (free to join) and get $20 off your first rental!


We had to drive up early Saturday morning thanks to snow the night before. I decided to make headband curls, since I could sit with the headband on for hours in the car. I wanted to be comfy for the ride, so I changed in the bathroom when we arrived and did my makeup there as well. I was a little worried I'd look like a mess, but I think I pulled it together! 

Dress by Opening Ceremony. Retail price: $405. Rental normally: $75 + $10 shipping = $85
Used a coupon for $15 off + free shipping = Grand total: $60!

    1. I get a little scared too ordering things without trying on. They have a nice guide though to how each dress runs...small, medium, large.

  56. You look GREAT! I can't believe your hair looks like that after a car ride with a headband. Mine doesn't look that good after an hour with the curling iron. Congrats to the newlyweds!
