Although I ended up absolutely loving my dress for the wedding we attended in Chicago last week, it was not my first choice. I had originally chosen a red dress (totally out of my comfort zone) and was honestly pretty excited about it. Fast forward to delivery of my dress the night before the wedding, waiting until the next day to try it on only to discover a sizing mishap and I was dressless the day of the wedding. Hours before the wedding nonetheless.
Thankfully in Chicago there is a Rent the Runway store - and boy did they come to the rescue. In less than an hour they had me in a new dress (that fit perfectly) and accessorized me with a stunning necklace and bracelet. They were like magical fashion fairies and the end result could not have been better.
This was definitely the dress I should have picked from the start and a reminder that things happen for a reason.
Let me tell you - these dresses with side cut-outs keep you mindful at that dessert table and moving on the dance floor! Something I was thankful for the next day considering I did break down and opt for late night tacos, a quesadilla and cookies in bed...all to myself.
Happy almost Friday!
