You know, I’m a spring baby and although I’d rather be hot than cold I need the seasons to make up their minds. I was ready to bring out my fall fur and the sun just wanted to steal my shine, nonetheless I made it work!
When faced with the challenge of trying to make a fall outfit when it’s still 75+ degrees, I try to pull on specific items from both seasons! In the fall one item that is specific to that season is FUR, and for spring it’s rompers (summer too).
While pursuing around online late one night, I stumbled across Rent The Runway’s page. Scrolled through the rompers and jumpsuits section and fell in love with this DVF romper. It’s different, funky, imperfect yet fashionable! The two toned aspect of the romper is what really sold me; it kind of reminded me of a DIY top I made for NYFW last year. And although it’s a romper (which is usually worn in during the warmer seasons), I feel that the colors worked perfect for the Fall.
I always need a statement color for my outfits, I’m not the biggest fan of being match-y match-y, unless of course I’m creating a single color outfit, and in that case I like to be super match-y and extra! So when I was scrolling through the handbags tab on RTR and saw the color of this Rebecca Minkoff bag, which was almost exact to a Dolce&Gabbana lipstick of mine; I just knew it was meant to be! Paired with some Kanye-sque peep toe booties and I was done!
Quick side note about Rent the Runway, I always thought the concept of this brand was ingenious but I never had too many occasions in which I needed a gown. So when the company started to expand into everyday clothes, handbags, jewelry and more I knew we would be long term friends. Being able to rotate looks like clockwork is something I’m a big fan of, and I’m able to save my coins because I’m not paying designer dollars for these items! Thank you RTR, I appreciate you!
