Glam V-Day with Rent the Runway

Screen Shot 2015-02-07 at 12.35.42 AMHappy soon to be Valentime’s Day… don’t you hate it when people say Valentime’s? Drives me bananas!! Anyhow, Rayna and I had so much fun today doing a little Valentine’s Day photoshoot with our friends in my backyard.  A VERY special thank you to our gorgeous friend Dana for being our model (pretty sure she practices in the mirror, like a lot, she was impressive) and our super fabulous friend Lori for supplying all of the beautiful jewelry from Stella & Dot. The four of us had a wonderful day of fashion, photography and being silly.

When I had the idea to do this shoot I really wanted to do something ultra-glam yet accessible and affordable for you guys while still capturing Dana’s sweet, Taylor Swift esque personality.  There are so many options for an outfit for Valentine’s Day, it really comes down to what type of day/evening you have planned but you can find everyday outfit ideas on Pinterest, I wanted to do something extra special and different from the obvious choices. Enter one of my favorite companies, Rent the Runway!

Rent the Runway was nice enough to give us an amazing deal on all of these dresses for our shoot (thank you RTR!), we fell in love with every single dress from Monique Lhiullier to Halston. Rent the Runway has a beautiful inventory of designer dresses, jumpsuits, jackets and accessories to rent for a range of events from a night out with your love to a black tie gala in sizes 0-22 <—–how amazing is that?  Here’s how it works: You pick what you want, select your date, pay, they ship it fast, you wear it and impress the pants off of all kinds of strange people then you place it in a prepaid UPS bag and drop it at a UPS center! Easy peasy!

The opportunity to put on the most amazing designers at an affordable price and feel like a Queen for a day, ummm hello… yes, please! 

xo, Jessica

The blue dress with the pink heels… love, love, love! Going to have to check out Rent the Runway. My closet is in serious need of something a bit more girly.
