“Dancing in the Moonlight”

12 May

Even though I am now a college graduate (sigh) this time of year always makes me think of Prom. Thanks to Laguna Beach and the new Disney movie Prom, over the top ways to ask a date to prom are becoming increasingly popular. With Prom budgets going to this new trend some may wonder how girls are still affording beautiful and amazing prom dresses. One way may be with Rent The Runway. From their website:

“Rent the Runway lets you access your dream wardrobe for all of life’s special occasions at 90% off. Choose current season fashion from over 95 designers for every black tie gala, wedding, date, holiday or night on the town”

All you have to do is enter the date you need the dress, your size (they send you an alternative size as well for no additional charge), your zip code and then browse all your a m a z i n g options. They have  pieces from incredible designers such as Hervé Léger, Halston Heritage, Proenza Schouler, and Lilly Pulitzer (obviously one of my favs seen here, here, and here) just to name a few!

Here are a few I am keeping in mind for my next big event:

Herve Leger, rent for $150

Halston Heritage, rent for $100

Proenza Schouler, rent for $250

You can even rent accessories and bags..

Badgley Mischka Earings, rent for $20

Judith Leiber Clutch, rent for $175

I wish I had known about this for all the proms, dances, cocktails, formals, etc. I attended in high school and college. I could have saved a bunch of money on dresses and accessories which I have only wore once.


Things that make me happy today:

1. Something Borrowed

2. Friends succeeding

3. Warm weather

p.s. “Dancing in the Moonlight” was the theme to my prom!
