Style Secret: Rent The Runway

If you have a black tie or formal event coming up this summer and want to look AMAZING, let me let you in on a little secret you may or may not know about already.  Enter Rent the Runway, a fabulous online service that lets you rent gorgeous designer gowns for a fraction of their retail price.  I haven't tried the service yet, but am planning to use it for an upcoming photo shoot (if you have used it already let me know how your experience was in the comments!)  So far, in reviewing their site, I am a big fan.  The nice thing about RTR is that they have a good selection of wearable items that I could see a lot of women wearing to weddings, dances, formal receptions, etc.  They also offer very cute jewelry and handbags to complete your look!  It is not cheap by any means, but compared to the cost of buying a comparable gown and only wearing it once it is a smart and economical choice.  Because let's be honest- did anyone ever wear their prom or formal maid of honor dress again?  This is also a good choice if you're attending a red carpet event where you know you'll be photographed and therefore wouldn't want to repeat your outfit.  Here are some of my favorite black tie looks available on the site right now:
