Shopping Challenge

A few weeks ago my college friend ES contacted me looking for some advice on what to wear to a magazine party at the end of September. Ironically she lives in the DC area, so I thought this would be a good challenge for Katie and I to tackle as a team.

Given that ES is a very busy mother of two adorable girls, I imagine that she does more shopping for them than she does for herself. But this time the focus is on her and looking extra fabulous for her night on the town. Being that most moms are on a budget, I thought I would suggest some dresses from Rent The Runway. For those of you who are not familiar, RTR allows you to rent designer dresses at a fraction of the price. It's a great way to have fabulous dresses for all the special events in your life without spending a fortune.

For some reason I was drawn to one shoulder dresses. I think all of these dresses would be figure flattering and stylish for ES at her magazine party.

Rebecca Taylor ($325) rental $50

Robert Rodriguez Black Label ($525) rental $75

Shoshanna ($365) rental $50

Thread Social ($550) rental $75

Stay tuned later today for part deux of this shopping challenge! If ES doesn't like my suggestions, hopefully she will like Katie's.
