Black tie affair
|Net A Porter - Wish I could get this one|
But not this time - there's simply been no time.
Y'all, I'm going to try to Rent the Runway. If you haven't heard of this service before, it's pretty much the female equivalent of renting a tuxedo. Except that you can do it all online and instead of boring tuxedos, you can choose a variety of sparkly, spangly style dresses. I've never rented a ballgown before (much less worn one) so remind me to tell you all how it goes. And maybe snap a few photos as well. Somehow, I think I'm going to be less Cinderella and more the ugly stepsister.
So, if any of you have attended a black tie event, any helpful hints on dresses / shoes / hair / makeup would be much appreciated by this secret tomboy. And if you've ever tried Rent the Runway, tell me about your experience.
