Happy Monday! I hope you all enjoyed a fabulous weekend. I am always happy to have a weekend full of family and friends, but I still get excited to go back to work. As I was reading one of my favorite blogs this morning, 100 Layer Cake, a particular photo shoot really caught my attention. It was an engagement shoot that had just the right amount of sweet and sultry. I have to say that the clothing and accessories had a huge part in portraying that. As I went through to the end of the post to see where she got her stunning dresses, I saw that they were all from Rent the Runway. It made complete and total sense why I loved what she was wearing! I have never actually used Rent the Runway, but I’ve known several people who have. If you are not familiar with RTR, then it’s pretty simple. Here’s how it works…
*You sign up (it’s free), and browse the website. They have dresses and jewelry from so many wonderful designers. You can get the dress, jewelry, handbag, and even Spanx!
*You select the date you want your dress to arrive. They offer next day shipping. You are able to keep the merchandise for either 4 or 8 days.
*When you are done, just stick the dress back in the bag they provide and stick it in your mailbox.
*They offer stylist tips and advice to make sure you find the perfect fit for your body type.
*RTR sends 2 sizes in the dress that you order to make sure at least one of the dresses will work. You may even have a friend that can wear the other size, so maybe you can split the rental.
*RTR guarantees that the dress will fit. If for some reason it doesn’t they will issue a full merchandise credit.
My mind is spinning with all the ways that Brides can use RTR for pre-wedding festivities.
*After the wedding and reception
Here are some of the pictures from the shoot featured on 100 Layer Cake

So, I’m super excited to announce that we are now on Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book Vendor Guide! Style Me Pretty has been a site that I have been obsessed with. So, look us up if you get the chance!
So, my latest obsession is making inspiration boards. I could spend hours putting these together, so I will just show a few. My inspiration was shoes.

I’m not the kind of girl who is always looking for a new pair of shoes. Going to a shoe store or a shoe department can be a little overwhelming for me even though I always want to quickly browse through. To me, shoes are an investment. Once you reach a certain age, your feet are going to stay the same size, so you don’t run the risk of out growing your shoes. I love that. You can gain or lose as much weight as you want and your shoes still fit!
Here are some of my favorite trends right now
Platform/Stiletto – Charles Jourdan
Suede/Velvet – Tory Burch
Wedges – Diane Von Furstenberg
Rub on places you think you might get a blister
Keep a pair of flats with you small enough to fit in your purse
