What to Wear?
Welp, I pretty much think I have solved the world’s problems. If you have already done that…first of all, rude for not telling me. Second, just let’s pretend like I am a visionary and let me have my moment.
I have been getting to go to more events lately. So fun right? Um, yes…however this poses a very large problem. MY WARDROBE.
Let’s be real y’all, when hairstylists get together, we want to have our A game on. Also, there will be pictures so there’s that.
So, here’s my grand solution…you ready? Rent the Runway. No, I am not sponsored (I mean, maybe someone can put in a good word for me? *insert emoji with the one eye and tongue out).
I had to go check it out after listening to the founder, Jenn Hyman, on the NPR How I Build This podcast. This is one of my favorite podcasts outside of our industry to listen to, and I knew after hearing her story, what she had built was something I needed to see in action.
For 4 items a month, you can pay $89 (and as far as I am aware you can cancel at any time)! You guys…I think I actually just made money grow on a tree.
I’m not even kidding when I tell you that for each event I was going to, my butt was going out and spending at MINIMUM $200 to get those perfect few pieces to wear.
I don’t know why I always thought Rent the Runway was for formal dresses, but it IS NOT! It hast the cutest tops, skirts, jackets etc., and the site is so easy to navigate.
Don’t judge me here. I am aware that some people have much better self-control, and are more creative than I am with their wardrobe. I wish I could manipulate my closet into all of these amazing mix and match outfits, but my brain just doesn’t work that way. Hence, the going out and buying new things every time I go somewhere.
Want to know what I got?! I got THE CUTEST color block tiered skirt (now when I wear it, you’ll be like oooooh that skirt is rented…you’re welcome.) I also rented two adorable tops and wait for it…a faux fur red jacket. The jacket, I’ll admit, was an impulse decision that may or may not actually get worn.
If you can’t tell, I am super excited about this revelation for us girls who like to get a little extra at events!
Let me know if you try it out!!! Then, I can be looking to spot your finds!
