What I Wore From Rent the Runway (December and January)

These are the first few months I’ve had to rent true winter clothing- coats, sweaters, you name it. Rent the Runway definitely makes winter more exciting now that I’m not wearing the same black, heavy-duty coat every day.

If you’ve never heard of Rent the Runway, it is a subscription service where you can choose from hundreds of designer pieces to rent each month. I have the unlimited subscription which allows me to continually trade out any four pieces I want throughout the month. Its allowed me to have the vast designer wardrobe I’ve always wanted without the vast expense on my bank account.

For Work…

This was by-far one of my favorite dresses I rented; not only this month, but probably ever. I’m obsessed with Tibi and never disappointed with what I rent from the brand. The material on this dress was thick and stretchy, making it super comfortable. This is the perfect work dress and I will definitely be renting it again for networking events. I rented a size 4 which fit perfectly.

This is the Greylin Yuna Striped Wrap Top in size small. It matched my Something Navy heels perfectly. This is a good basic work top that you can wear everyday.

gingham skirt

Skirts may or may not be the best choice in the winter… but that clearly didn’t stop me! This is the DELFI Collective Gingham Reese Skirt in size small. It isn’t my typical style but I enjoyed wearing it for work one day.

enamel earrings

I only wore these Ettika Red Resin Teardrop Earrings once, but they matched this skirt so perfectly, I had to rent them. They did look a little cheap so I probably wouldn’t rent them again.

This C/MEO Collective Underline Knit Top in size small was another favorite from these months. C/MEO Collective is another brand that never fails me. The fabric is always such good quality, something that is very important to me as a sewer. This top is thick and stretchy, and I’m obsessed with the puffy shoulders.

This Rachel Roy Collection Blanchette Leopard Dress in a size 2 was, yet again, another favorite. I love the style of the dress- flutter sleeves and a tiered ruffle skirt. This is a great way to take the cheetah print trend straight to the office.

For Date Night…

How gorgeous is the color of this Salar Pink Kio Bag!? I still can’t get over it. This is by far one of my favorite colors. I also love the strap on this bag- a mix of different silver chains and one covered in a pink coating. I’m now in love with this brand and all of their bags.

For Exploring the City…

Marc Jacobs bag

You’ve probably seen the Marc Jacobs Black Snapshot Crossbody all over Instagram. It’s a basic bag with a fun, colorful strap. I loved how it brightened up any all-black look.

This is the Sancuary Just Chill Cropped Puffa Jacket in size small. The coat wasn’t super warm but it was a fun, trendy coat to rent for the weekend. I really liked how it looked with my navy leggings.

Here’s another way I wore the C/MEO Collective Underline Knit Top in size small!

Another way I wore the Marc Jacobs Black Snapshot Crossbody.

purple sweater

This color reminds me of Barney, but I love it (you’re hearing from a huge Barney fan right now). The Fifth Label Fervour Knit Sweater in size small is comfy, and a great way to add some color to your wardrobe. I love how it pairs with the Marc Jacobs bag.
