Holiday Party Time...Rent the Runway Style

i have been dying to try rent the runway for my next big event and finally had the opportunity for my company holiday party. 
 
the dress code was cocktail, so i new i wanted to go short, and for the longest time i have been wanting to wear an all sequin dress. 
 
 
 
after searching their endless supply of amazing dresses, and reading numerous reviews i decided to order the dress in an xs and s.  my event was on the 8th and i received my dress on the 7th. 
 
only problem was that i only received one dress instead of the two i ordered (they always give you one extra size free).  i glanced at the size xs and was a little nervous that i would have to do some last minute shopping. 
 
lucky for me, the size xs fit like a glove. 
 
(i should mention that rtr did email me on the 6th (and i missed the email) that they would only be shipping the xs as there was an issue with getting the s)

 
off to the party b and i went and let me just say the dress was a hit!  i loved dancing in it and it was definitely a conversation starter! 
 
i opted to go with a "sock bun" top knot, simple eyes and bold lips which i think complimented the dress even more. 

 
we had such a great time that we forgot to take more pictures (or a full length shot) and at the end of the night i didn't want to give the dress back! 
 
but back into the pre-addressed stamped envelope it went and i bid adieu to all the fun memories the dress provided. 
 
although my rent the runway experience wasn't perfect, it was pretty damn close and i will most definitely be renting in the near future again! 
 
be sure to check out rent the runway for your next event...perhaps some more sparkly goodness for new years?

I just got a $50 off RTR from this month's BirchBox and I'm excited to try it. Maybe this summer for a wedding?
