RTR for Spring

 Happy Sunday!  I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!  I've been a busy bee at work, and have been in bed by 9:00pm the last two nights!  It's been great :) I'm excited to go to an Oscar's viewing party tonight -- I can't wait to find out who wins the awards, and of course check out the (hopefully) amazing fashion!  I love award shows, and this one is by far the most entertaining and glamourous to me. 

Have you all heard of Rent the Runway?  I'm sure most of you have, but if you haven't, it is a website where you can "rent" designer dresses, clothes, and accessories for a fraction of the original cost of the item.  They will ship you the item (in 2 different sizes of your choice) and you get to keep it for several days, and then you return it.  It is great for special occasions, wedding weekends, and fun events where you would love to wear something fancy shmancy, but don't want to pay a fortune. 
Especially if you might only wear the item once! 

Anywho, I have yet to try anything from the website, but I have lots of friends who have, and they loved it! 
Here are my top picks for spring, now all I need is a reason to rent one! Beach vacation? Cruise? John, are you reading this???  ;)
