|Dress: BCBGMAXAZRIA via Rent the Runway
Shoes: Lulus, also love this
If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that we went to Minneapolis over the weekend for a wedding. Whenever I attend a wedding, I am always on a hunt for a new dress to wear. I don’t know why but maybe because I don’t want to seem like an outfit repeater to another wedding (hello, photos!) or maybe it’s just an excuse to buy a new dress hehe 🙂 Unfortunately, these dresses become a waste and take up space in my closet. Closet space is definitely limited these days, so I decided to try out Rent the Runway. Boy was I a happy girl when I went through their site! – by the way Chicagoans, they have a flagship store! There are so many choices, all of which are dresses I have considered or wish I can afford! If you are unsure of Rent the Runway’s concept, basically you can rent any name brand dress they have in stock, and when you’re done with it, you just simply ship it back to them. I’m eyeing this Red Valentino dress for the next wedding I will attend. I mean, it is only $35 to rent it!
For this wedding, I definitely wanted to take advantage of a summery look. I wanted something soft, pastel, and light. This BCBGMAXAZRIA dress was perfect! It had a nice soft hue with chiffon fabric. It was definitely light and breezy. The best part was that the waist was elastic. So there was definitely breathing room for more mobility on the dance floor ;). If you are considering this dress, I suggest going a size down. I’m normally a size small and had to go with XS. If I had the option, I would definitely go another size down from what I wore.
