Weekends are for sleeping

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We went to a wedding on Saturday, and binge watched Scandal on Sunday. Which was fine by me. I know there are other Scandal watchers out there, so tell me...

Are you team Jake or team Fitz?

Anywho. You might remember when I begged for opinions on renting a dress for our anniversary trip. By far, the most popular dress from that post was this one. I ended up renting it for a wedding instead, and went for something else for the anniversary trip. I rarely get to dress up and this is the only wedding I'm invited to this Summer (expat sob story) so I wanted to go all out.

I was super proud of my hair and makeup for the wedding, so obviously had to document it with a selfie.





The dress was perfect - I am so in love. If you are interested in rent the runway but hesitating - don't! They are amazing and their customer service is impeccable. I got 2 sizes, my normal size and a size up - even though everyone says the dress runs large, I knew with my booty and hips that wouldn't be the case. The larger size ended up fitting better, but it wasn't in the most perfect condition. They didn't have a replacement in the same size, so Alex from RTR offered me any other dress, a larger size and a refund regardless. I asked for the bigger size and it was perfect - in my opinion, it fit like a shift dress should, which never happens with said booty and hips. I would absolutely rent this dress again.

KC was so ready to leave and the last thing he wanted to do was take a ton of outfit photos, sigh. Seriously though, this dress is perfection. Love it. Meanwhile, I need a tan stat.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! My weekend wasn't that exciting, but I'm linking up with Biana anyway. Now when the heck is Scandal back?

  14. Love the dress! I don't know why but lately I've been obsessing over mini dresses with long sleeves, they're just so cute. Using RTR, can you purchase the stuff? If you really love something are you allowed to keep it or do you have to send it back?

  15. You look gorgeous! Please share what makeup you used, because it looks amazing! Love the dress too- it sounds like RTR has such great customer service! We don't have ANY weddings this summer, which breaks my heart a little bit, haha but I am waiting for an occasion to rent a dress!

  16. Well look at you looking all gorgeous in that dress with your pretty make up! Love it!

    Don't get me started on Scandal! I love that show...but the relationship between Olivia and Fitz really just pisses me off! She is such a strong person...and he makes her stupid and weak. Doesn't stop me from indulging though!

  17. You look great! I have a wedding to go to in October that I seriously have nothing to wear to, and I've been thinking about RTR ever since you first mentioned it.

  21. It was the weekend for weddings apparently!!!
    You look FAB! I used to hate lace, but dresses like these make me love it now.
    I'm team both.. I love both guys. I hated Jake for a part of this season (no spoilers for those who haven't seen it) but man, she has chemistry with both, doesn't she? At least Jake is single though... decisions, decisions.

  36. It's kind of sad that as bloggers now we have to say "not a sponsored post" when we're just talking about stuff we like, you know? But I put a little more weight (hm, maybe a lot more) on uncompensated opinions, so I appreciate the disclosure! Okay, now back to the fun stuff. Your hair and makeup are PERFECTION. You look gorgeous and the dress you chose is so flattering - cut & color.
