2017 gave us some great costume worthy movies. Think La La Land, Fences, Hidden Figures, and Hell or High Water. We searched through various halloween costume sites and were disappointed to find most 2017 hit movie characters’ costumes failed to make it into warehouses. But don’t worry! We have combed through hundreds of products and have gathered various combinations to fit the costumes of some of our favorite movie characters and would make perfect Oscars party costumes.
One more thing >> if you continue scrolling down we have included movie inspired costumes from past years including the always popular Lobby Boy Costume from the Grand Budapest Hotel.

We have to fess up, we are huge fans of the the Bachelor & Bachelorette television series and cannot help ourselves but actually like one season better than the next. JoJo had to be one of our all time favorite Bachelorettes. We loved just about everything about her, including her clothes. So we were particularly excited when we realized that so many of JoJo Fletcher's bachelorette looks are available on Rent the Runway. We have sung the praises of Rent the Runway, many times before, but the fact that you can now get JoJo's $1,190 Bachelorette finale dress for only $150 is proof positive that Rent the Runway is the way to go!

We asked, Izzy, our very own fashionista to try out the latest and greatest from Rent The Runway >> their Unlimited days option. Just to back up a bit, Izzy has used Rent the Runway to wear high end designer label clothes to special occasions off and on over the past few years. She has tended to use them for what she would call one-time dresses. These are dresses that stand out so much she would most likely not recycle them for another event. For example, she once rented the Herve Lager Citrus Flamingo Dress to wear to a Vegas style theme party. There is no way she would ever consider purchasing a curve hugging bandage dress for $1450 retail but for $40.00 it was the perfect 1x wear dress for that event. Similarly she has rented dresses to wear to luau themed cocktail parties, New Year's Eve, and holiday parties. She even considered renting the Moschino Think Pink cropped sweater and matching bag to create a Barbie look for Halloween one year. But now that Izzy works for a renowned fashion house, she needs to look professional, yet on trend, each and every day. So she decided to give Rent the Runway's Unlimited Days a try and she loves it! It is so much fun having new clothes appear at her doorstep. She tends to wear each of the three outfits once or twice and then sends them back for new options. Izzy's only issue is finding the time to select the new outfits. Not a bad problem to have. (In full disclosure – neither Izzy nor PartyIdeaPros received any discount or compensation for using Rent the Runway Unlimited. The fact is we did not even receive our usual referral commission because we wanted to keep this experiment and subsequent review as impartial and fair as possible. Having said that, if you do end up purchasing something from our RTR link, we should receive a small percentage of the sale. We promise – you will not pay any more.) Continue Reading →

MomMeMatch.com has done it again 🙂 We are obsessed with these mother daughter party dresses for fancy Easter parties, or for spring and summer weddings, or for just about any special occasion. The featured girl's outfit is a light pink and black color block dress from Janie & Jack. The mom's coordinating blush and light pink color block dress we found on Rent the Runway so although still pricey, you get to wear a gorgeous high end designer dress for a fraction of the cost of buying it. This particular stunner is Narciso Rodriguez's Geo Shift Dress which retails for $1695 but can be rented for $225. It's flowy fabric brings an element of softness to this updated blush and black shift completed with minimalist heels and a messy-chic bun. What more can we say – both gals will turn heads with their mother daughter almost matching party dresses.
Here are just a few more options in blush, emerald green, black and navy, white, and deep blue. Oh so pretty. Oh so chic & elegant. And now, oh so affordable designer dresses with Rent the Runway. Continue Reading →

We are obsessed with the Narciso Rodriguez Geo Shift Dress and Blumarine Amber Waves Jumpsuit. So party pretty in pink on Valentine's Day! Continue Reading →

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.
Party Pretty. Party Hearty!
