We have to fess up, we are huge fans of the the Bachelor & Bachelorette television series and cannot help ourselves but actually like one season better than the next. JoJo had to be one of our all time favorite Bachelorettes. We loved just about everything about her, including her clothes. So we were particularly excited when we realized that so many of JoJo Fletcher's bachelorette looks are available on Rent the Runway. We have sung the praises of Rent the Runway, many times before, but the fact that you can now get JoJo's $1,190 Bachelorette finale dress for only $150 is proof positive that Rent the Runway is the way to go!

Celebrate & Support Women's Causes
This week Hillary Clinton made history. She became the first woman to accept a major national political party's nomination for President of the United States. Whether you agree with her politics, or not, this is a milestone in women's history and can and should be celebrated. How, you ask? We think the very best way to embrace the moment is to celebrate the women in your life and to support women's causes.
And yes, we are absolutely obsessed with PuraVida Bracelets but not just because they are adorable and affordable, but because you can party pretty, all day and into the night, AND add meaning to your celebration. Part of the proceeds from the sale of all of these bracelets go towards benefiting important women's causes.

2015 has been quite the year. We were so inspired by this Great Gets post imagining Halloween costumes ripped from the headlines. Theme your Halloween and create a ripped from the headlines Halloween party! Tell your guests to arrive in costumes straight off the front page and the evening news — between politics, sports, and culture, there's plenty to choose from! These costumes are easy, fun, and add a touch of humor and pop culture knowledge to any Halloween party. And yes although some of the featured costumes are satirical and poke a bit of fun at politicians and other public figures, we have made a conscious decision not to feature costumes we deem disrespectful, or have the potential to incite violence or foster hatred and we implore you to do the same. Please no Caitlyn Jenner or Black Lives Matter costumes, and please, please stay away from anything and everything ISIS.
