Black + White Dress














Getting all fancied up with my love is one of my all time favorite things to do. Not only because it’s an excuse to buy something new, but also because I love to be on the arm of my handsome Marine. Gregory and I attended our third Marine Corps Ball together this past weekend and had the best time.


“Girls should be two things: classy & fabulous.” – CoCo Chanel

Wearing this little number was the icing on the cake…and the best part, the dress only cost me $80. YES! I’m totes serious! I’m probably totally late to the party, but I just recently discovered Rent the Runway (RTR….and this is also short for Roll Tide Roll 😉 ) and I’m OBSESSED! In my line of work in PR, I’m always having to attend fancy shmancy events and have a fear of dress repeating and not wanting to spend a fortune. RTR has changed the dress game for me. And did I mention the dress is delivered to your doorstep?! Yep, that simple!

They even have an app. So you literally pick the dates you need the dress, the type of function you’re attending, and there are SO many options to choose from and the dresses are designers like Badgley Mischka, Kate Spade, and Cynthia Rowley. This dress was retail $600 and I was able to rent it for 15 percent of the cost. I’m sorry, but you really can’t beat that. I was able to splurge a little more on this adorable fur clutch (which also comes in an adorable blush color) and Steve Madden shoes because of the money I saved. RTR also rents designer jewelry and accessories. You can legit get your whole ensemble for under $100.
