This year’s VMAs may have been one of the wildest shows I’ve watched in a while. Luckily, the red carpet brought a nice balance to the the evening’s performances and unpolished speeches. Black dresses ruled the night and I was loving every minute of it. Here is my list of the best dressed alongside a similar look you can sport off the red carpet. All similar looks can be rented from Rent The Runway. Cheers! Hilary

Hey there! Today’s look is all about taking subtle risks. I’ve always thought yellow was a difficult color to pull off, especially with my fair skin tone. Thankfully, Rent the Runway has given me the opportunity to take risks with my wardrobe. I had been eyeing this Rachel Roy dress for a while but wasn’t sure I would be able to pull off such a bold color. I finally bit the bullet and am so thankful I did! I’ve worn this dress three times since I rented it. It went from an Independence Day BBQ, to dinner with my parents and finally to a client meeting. Lastly, you may have noticed that I’ve become quite enthralled with braids this Summer. I tried double dutch braids with this look, I hope you like it!
P.S. My two best friends are coming to visit me this weekend and I’ve had a permanent smile on my face all week. I’m so thankful for life long friends like these. See you soon Lauren and Aubrie!
By chance, do you remember my Spring wish list from a couple weeks ago? Well, one of my wishes came true last week when this pretty little thing showed up at my door! It was the perfect dress to enjoy the lovely weather we had here in North Carolina last weekend. The only thing better than the delicate feminine details of this dress? The $50 price tag to rent it.
Each year I look forward to seeing the elaborate costumes worn at the Met Gala. This year was no exception. The theme, “China: Through the Looking Glass”, inspired plenty of drop everything to stop and stare moments. I’m betting we can all agree that Rihanna stole the show last night. You may be surprised to know she was one of the few attendees to wear a Chinese designer.
The very moment I saw Rihanna’s dress, it reminded me of a dress I had been eyeing on Rent the Runway. Take a look as I recap my best dressed of the night and share a similar rented look.

Ahh…until next year!
Happy Monday! I don’t go into the office much these days since I work from home. As you may assume, it’s exciting when I get to dress up for client visits and trips back to my Atlanta headquarters. I’ve worn this look with tights during the winter and it has easily transitioned into my Spring office wardrobe. If you’re thinking what I think you’re thinking….the answer is yes, it’s OK to wear all black in Spring 🙂 It certainly doesn’t hurt to accent your look with a bright bag from Rent the Runway.
Today I’m sharing another deal from last week’s J.Crew sale. This flirty little skirt has already worked it’s way into a couple outfits since it landed on my doorstep. Here I paired it with one of my favorite vintage tops. Besides, how can you go wrong covered in pink?
This dress is my pick for Erik’s military gala this Spring. I think it’s the perfect amount of femininity and class. Plus, I was itching for another chance to wear a white dress since our wedding in June! I rented this as a part of my Rent The Runway Unlimited subscription.
