We asked, Izzy, our very own fashionista to try out the latest and greatest from Rent The Runway >> their Unlimited days option. Just to back up a bit, Izzy has used Rent the Runway to wear high end designer label clothes to special occasions off and on over the past few years. She has tended to use them for what she would call one-time dresses. These are dresses that stand out so much she would most likely not recycle them for another event. For example, she once rented the Herve Lager Citrus Flamingo Dress to wear to a Vegas style theme party. There is no way she would ever consider purchasing a curve hugging bandage dress for $1450 retail but for $40.00 it was the perfect 1x wear dress for that event. Similarly she has rented dresses to wear to luau themed cocktail parties, New Year's Eve, and holiday parties. She even considered renting the Moschino Think Pink cropped sweater and matching bag to create a Barbie look for Halloween one year. But now that Izzy works for a renowned fashion house, she needs to look professional, yet on trend, each and every day. So she decided to give Rent the Runway's Unlimited Days a try and she loves it! It is so much fun having new clothes appear at her doorstep. She tends to wear each of the three outfits once or twice and then sends them back for new options. Izzy's only issue is finding the time to select the new outfits. Not a bad problem to have. (In full disclosure – neither Izzy nor PartyIdeaPros received any discount or compensation for using Rent the Runway Unlimited. The fact is we did not even receive our usual referral commission because we wanted to keep this experiment and subsequent review as impartial and fair as possible. Having said that, if you do end up purchasing something from our RTR link, we should receive a small percentage of the sale. We promise – you will not pay any more.) Continue Reading →

We were just perusing Dessy, one of our favorite bridal sites, to see if they might have anything special for the holiday season and stumbled upon these pretty pashminas. Wrap the special gals in your life in luxury! Pashmina shawls are elegant for evening or formal wear, and stylish for casual wear too. Wrap a pashmina stole around bare shoulders for a touch of late-evening warmth, or tie around your neck for casual panache. They not only make perfect bridesmaid gifts but they are lovely holiday gifts, birthday gifts and any time gifts. In addition to weddings, think holiday party attire, New Year's party dress accessories, gala formal wear, and special occasion celebrations of all kinds. We think every well-dressed gal should own at least one, and preferably multiple, pretty pashminas. And at just $28.00 they will not blow your budget but still look very expensive. Continue Reading →
