Playing dress up

Things are getting down to the wire for my friend’s wedding this weekend. I can’t believe its here. Since she asked me to be a bridesmaid, I’ve wondered what I’d wear throughout the entire event.

I have the bachelorette party, the rehearsal dinner and the wedding itself. Not having been in a full and complete wedding for years and years, I wasn’t quite sure the type of dresses; fancy, casual, classy, saucey??..you know, what would be appropriate.

I found my bridesmaid dress in June. My rehearsal dinner dress in July and my bachelorette dress arrived yesterday from Rent the Runway. Have you heard of them? They’re pretty awesome. We were told by the bride’s sister that we needed to wear a black dress to the party, so since I had zero time from finding that out to the actual night, I went to the website and found the perfect dress.

I ordered it on Monday, it arrived on Wednesday and I couldn’t have been more thrilled. It came in a sturdy box with fun designer sketches on it. Inside was a garment bag, with my dress in 2 different sizes. That’s right, you get 2 sizes to make sure it fits…on hangers! in plastic bags no less. They really make sure these dresses are protected. Which is a good thing because it was at my door in the over 100 degree heat, with the sun beating down on it for hours.

I couldn’t wait to try them on. One fit perfectly, and I certainly can’t wait to wear it to her bachelorette party. Here’s a sneak peek. If you follow me on instagram, you’ll have already seen it but I figure a ‘flashed’ picture is a good sneak until you can see it completely in all its..and my glory. I feel pretty darn great in this dress, not gonna lie.

We all know I lead a pretty standard life, so for me to be able to wear 3 very pretty, fun and make me feel good dresses for 3 days straight is a very big deal.

I missed out yesterday, so let me wish everyone a Happy August!!

So glad to see a post about RTR...I've been a member for awhile but never used it yet. The dress looks beautiful, and I'm jealous you get to be so dressed up on 3 occasions! I love dressing up too, but I don't get to often. :)

Actually, I wish I laughed it off a long time ago so trying on a gown wasn't so damn sad. ;o)
