The winning outfit

You voted… I rented! The off-white floral couture dress won out by a big margin. I wore the pink ombre Bacall earrings. Those sneaks belong to our beloved Bob Madigan

WHCD Weekend: Rented the dresses and all!

Michelle Obama donned a long Halston dress at the White House Correspondents Dinner the same designer I chose to wear too! Hers was probably a gazillion dollars where mine cost only$75bucks. HOW you ask? I RENTED it.

Yep-   It’s my new favorite thing. Renting dresses and jewelry from Rent-the-Runway.com. There’s designers fit for the First Lady you can rent for a fraction of the cost. I mean- some are only $25!  Not only did I rent the Jet Black Halston for the party night.. I got a Lela Rose dress for brunch the next day.

This is how it works. You choose the 4 day span to rent your dress for time to get it, wear it and mail it back. They give you all you need. Oh and here’s a perk- you can choose a second size for free! The Halston halter was $455 but I rented it for $75. I also rented the this $545 Dannijo cuff.. for $45.

Renting Dresses & my Today Show 'Bump' Time

I recently tweeted that I found the fabulous ‘Rent-the-Runway’.  It seems like the perfect solution for someone who is constantly going to events. This cool website lets you borrow designer dresses at a fraction of what it would cost to own them. From Milly to Lilly to Oscar de la Renta and Valentino it seems their’s something for everyone’s level of fine taste. My twitter friend @crisclapp sent me these pics of a recent rental she wore to a wedding. Cris says  ” I can’t tell you how many compliments I got all night, I was definitely pleased with the RTR experience”.

Cris ordered one size since she knew how the designer fit on her but RTR gives you teh option to order a backup size for free. She rented it for $50… new it would’ve cost $350.

She is a ray of sunshine.. and said she didn’t want to return it!

Another favorite site of mine is GoTryItOn.com .. basically it’s a forum for you to get feedback on outfits your considering for work, play or a special event! I love it… and recently found out it landed me on Good Morning America and The Today Show.

Watch Today Show… fast forward to 2:21 in the video:
