Did you all have a great weekend? I got the weekend started at my company's holiday party on Friday. A fancy-schmancy affair at one of the area's museums; a fun time was had by all (and some more than others, judging by the dancing going on the dance floor).
Getting dressed for formal affairs is always a bit nerve-wracking for me. The selection of dresses in my closet is severely lacking. To keep the stress at a minimum this year, I decided to Rent the Runway again (see this post for first experience). It took forever to decide on a dress, but I went with a black number from Shoshanna. I love Shoshanna, she knows how to make a lovely dress and this was no exception. I picked my dress, told them when I wanted it to arrive, it came right on time in its garment bag and I had my dress for the party. If you ever decide to try Rent the Runway keep in mind that they charge shipping and a $5 insurance fee and you should take advantage of the offer to send a second size for free. One thing is for sure, the selection can't be beat. I was so close to going all out with a gold mini from Halston Heritage or a gorgeous Rachel Roy dress, but with Christmas gifts to still left to buy, my money had other plans.
A little lace, my pearls, some shimmering heels and I was out the door!! Okay, I was at least 30 minutes behind schedule, but I was fashionably late.
