Rent the Runway- Take 2

As many of you know, my first experience with Rent the Runway caused me a small amount of hair loss in the days and hours leading up to my evening of festivities, but it all worked out nicely in the end and I ended up with a 20% off coupon to boot.  So, I've decided to give my friends over at RTR another chance. I've got a black tie affair coming up and currently nothing in my closet (or my wallet) is black-tie worthy. Actually, this is my first official black-tie affair since the Senior Prom, and I'm thinking the standards have changed since the dawn of the dinosaurs.  I'm making an educated guess and hoping that this glammy little number by Milly will cut the mustard:

Cute, right? The structured bustier is just what the plastic surgeon ordered and I think the sequined skirt kicks it up a notch to black-tie status. I've also had my eyeball on this long, red number by Robert Rodriguez, but I have a nagging feeling that it might be a little obnoxious to wear a long, "look-at-me" red dress to a wedding.

And I'd probably fall on my face at least twice. 
Milly it is.


  1. I die for both. you are going to look gorge.

  2. I love the Milly dress! The red one is gorgeous too and actually bares a striking resemblance to the one in Pretty Woman! (The opera dress, not the hooker dress.) haha.

  3. I think that the Milly dress screams you... you have the most amazing upper body and fab legs that I think you should show it off with that dress... also, I think that you wore a red dress with Andy Carbone freshman year so "been there done that!"

  4. Hi! I ran across your blog while searching for images of real people (not models) wearing some of the RTR dresses!!! Any chances you'll be posting a pic?

  5. Hi Jill-

    I posted pics of myself wearing last year's rtr rental here:
