This weekend is Dominique Sachse and Nick Florescu’s wedding at Becca Cason Thrash’s house and I have NOTHING to wear!!! I realize those names mean nothing to most of you, but let me put it this way, it’s the Houston event of the year.
Back in the day when I lived in NYC or LA, getting a dress at the last minute was easy because I could just call a showroom and have a few delivered. Well, those days are LONG gone. I would call local designer David Peck, whose designs I adore for their style and price, but I heard through the grapevine (aka my Mom) that the entire city bought at least one at his Tootsies trunk show.
Thankfully I, you, we all now have RentTheRunway at our disposal!
Last night I browsed through their selection of gowns (the wedding is black tie) and found two I like. My absolute favorite was unavailable, but I love these for their classic silhouettes and bold color.
I’m leaning towards the first one – it’s a little more me while the second is a little more Julia. I guess it will come down to fit. Thankfully they send 2 sizes.
But I want to hear what you think! If you would be so kind to leave your thoughts in the comments, I would greatly appreciate it!!
(Full disclosure: RTR is generously sending me the dresses for free in exchange for an honest video review. I’ve never tried the service before. It seems like the dress will be wearable, but I’m hoping for amazing and not total disappointment.)Tweet this!
