There are a lot of events in D.C. And I mean, a LOT. I used to laugh when people would make fun of bloggers and say that they didn’t want to wear the same thing twice. HA, I scoffed. That will never be me!
You see, that was all fine and dandy until a bunch of awesome dress rental companies started popping up! Now you don’t have to afford a $600 gown to wear one to that super special event coming up - you can spend $60 and keep it for three days instead!
Here’s the thing - I don’t mind wearing a dress to multiple events - it’s all in how you style them! However, now that Estiletta is renting out some of their prettiest pieces from emerging Spanish and Italian designers, I can’t help myself!
This skirt and top combo is something I wore to the Washingtonian Style Setters party. I knew this was NOT the night to wear something safe, so I reached out to Silvia, one of the most wonderful women (and owner of Estiletta) ever, to see if she had something fun for the event. She met me by my work and brought a few different options for me to try - how’s that for service?!
My gal pal and most beautiful mommy ever, Tammy over on A Loyal Love, took me as her date and amidst the torrential downpour, we had a pretty amazing evening. (Tammy, there’s no one I’d rather hide out by the sushi table with!) I’m still living on a cloud of happiness and champagne from that night - and I’ve decided someone needs to host another equally as fabulous event soon so I can slip into another one of Estiletta’s dreamy pieces. Until then…
