Look Like the Runway for Less

I can't wait - at the end of May, our big Sex and the City 2 party will be here! Cosmopolitans, cocktail dresses, and lots of fun with the ladies will be on the agenda for the night. And obviously, the movie itself. SATC1 was so fantastic, so I can only imagine how fun the second one will be.

Note to self: start planning this soon, ha! Contemplating different locations for the pre-party... And maybe a more organized after party this time?? If you'd like to be on the guest list, add your name and email to the comments!

I don't know of a more perfect way to celebrate the fab four on the big screen than by wearing some fantastic threads, but who has the money to splurge on a pricey designer cocktail dress that we might only wear once, maybe twice? Not I!

Well, thanks to my friend Hannah, I discovered this fabulous site this morning called Rent the Runway, and it could not have been more timely. The site works like the Bag Borrow or Steal site, where you can rent designer labels for cheap, for 4 or 8 days at a time. Perfect for those random occasions like a wedding, a holiday party, or your birthday night on the town. They even let you sort the dresses by occasion, color, and designer, and send you two sizes of the same dress for the price of just one, just in case. 

I love, love, love this Angel Sanchez number. It retails for a huge $3500, but you can rent it for $350. How adorable and swank. I love little dresses with puffy skirts!

This one is perfect for SATC2 (on my mental checklist, actually) - hot and mini, just like what Samantha would wear. In fact, I feel like I have seen a similar one on her in some episode...  It rents for only $50, retails at $360.

Boasting big designer names like Helmut Lang, Christian Siriano, Diane von Furstenburg, and Alice + Olive, this site has a huge assortment of fantastic dresses for your choosing. It's wait-list only, so let me know if you would like an invite, and I'd love to send you one! Thanks Hannah for passing it along!!
