Classy and Flirty Holiday Party Attire!

This holiday season we would love to wear classy and flirty holiday party attire but truthfully do not really want to spend the money on a dress, no matter how fabulous, that is really just a one or two time wear.  And no matter what the sales person tells you these crop top ensembles are not forever pieces – they are very, very today and although they fit our criteria of classy and flirty holiday party attire to the tee we would be unlikely to be willing to spend $795.00 or even $745.00 retail + taxes to own either of these dresses.  We would, on the other hand, be ok spending $110.00 or even $160.00 to wear a stunning on-trend Badgley Mischka ensemble and look absolutely gorgeous for a special Christmas party or New Year's Eve bash. That is why we are renting both from Rent the Runway!

Rent the Runway really does make it easy for you.  The first time we ordered a dress through Rent the Runway we discovered that it helps to put in your dates first – before you fall in love with any particular outfit – and then choose your favorite from there.  Our other suggestion – do not get too too hung up on the size. Carefully look at all the pictures and truthfully assess your body shape and size.  Just because you want to wear a size 4 does not mean you should!  Going up to a 6 may give you just the tad extra coverage that will create a classy and flirty holiday party attire look that will be getting second looks for all the right reasons!

It gets even better.… shop between 12/10-12/21, choose a rental start date between 12/26-12/31, and use code HAPPY2015 to save 20% on your order of $50 or more! Don't fret about ordering the wrong size either. With Rent The Runway you can even select an additional backup size to be shipped at no extra cost.

Vintage Inspired Wedding Dresses | White Prom & Special Occasion Dresses

Vintage Inspired Wedding Dresses | White Prom & Special Occasion Dresses

Despite popular misperceptions, it is not only possible to find beautiful, relatively inexpensive wedding dresses, you can also receive them the next day if willing to pay for overnight shipping.  All of the looks featured above are vintage inspired white and cream dresses priced from $75.00 – $400.00 and would be appropriate for all but a black tie wedding.  Complete your wedding day look with headpieces and veils! Keep it  simple and elegant.  For shoes, we recommend sticking with the vintage vibe in a neutral heel.  For us, the height of the heel matters less than the style.  We would stay away from wedges, wood heels, and super casual looks but are not opposed to adding a bit of personality and color if you dare! Vintage Inspired White & Cream Heels

Just an FYI – these dresses are not just for brides.  All would also be appropriate for any summer special occasion including prom!
