I’ve been purging ‘stuff’ from our house for months now. It’s a very productive and cathartic feeling, and leaves the house (and my mind) more organized. Where I have hard time purging is my closet. There’s always the, “but I may just wear it again…” In the case of dresses or gowns for weddings and events, it is never ever worn again. Yet, I still hold on them….which is a waste of money and of space.
Enter Rent Frock Repeat. Which, in a nutshell, was one of the most fabulous ‘shopping’ experiences of my life and resulted in not only looking fabulous, but enjoying #lessStuffMoreLife.
I love shopping, but the one on one experience at Rent Frock Repeat HQ was amazing. Lisa had me pick out all the dresses I liked and then she picked out some for me. Each of her picks made it obvious what an expert she was! When someone can put you in a dress you would have never even thought twice about and you fall in love with it, well….that’s tops in my books!
I needed two dresses, both for a weekend in Las Vegas in honour of my little brother’s wedding. I tried on soooo many fabulous dresses, and quite a few were added to my personal Rent Frock Repeat account for future reference:)
I ended up with this fabulous Badgley Mischka sequinned number for Saturday night out on the town. It was crazy comfortable and perfect for the cool temps outside.
For the wedding I selected this absolutely lovely gown by David Meister. (I was in love with it the moment I tried it on – see the video above for proof:)).
The dresses arrived the day before we left for Las Vegas, and upon return I slipped them into the return envelope. It was that easy! I love the #LessStuffMoreLife philosophy and can’t wait for my next Rent Frock Repeat experience!
ps. I took some fabulous heels with me:) I wore the open toed ones on the flight down and the black Michael Kors with the David Meister gown. If the temps had been warmer, I would have done a bare leg with the red BCBG heels with the sequinned Badgley Mischka – but I’m glad I went with the tight and black patent Aldo shoes.
pps. see the super fun stripped socks DH is wearing? My mom got him a bunch of Happy Socks for Christmas, and we’re both smitten with them! He wore these polka dot ones with his tux. So dapper!
