Happy Friday, Broke-Asses! Let’s talk bridesmaids looks this week, shall we? We love our girls — love ’em so much, in fact, that we’ve asked them to stand by our side on our wedding day. Shouldn’t that love also translate into loving their bank accounts — no matter how empty they may be? We think so. Which is why we try v. hard to provide you BABs with tons of options under $100. And why we’re super stoked about one Vow to Be Chic, which is a total dream come true for those of us with Champagne dreams and PBR budgets. Similar to Rent the Runway, but specifically for bridesmaids (and those looking for a dreamy little white dress), Vow to Be Chic carries designer dresses by the likes of Jenny Yoo, Theia, Donna Morgan and Jim Hjelm (to name a few) available for rent … and largely under $100. Like, you’re literally getting the look for less and aren’t saddling your homies with a spendy frock that they will very likely only wear once. Uh, that’s a huge win-win-win, if you ask us.
How does it work, you ask? Simple:
- Go to Vow to Be Chic
- Browse around
- Select the dresses you dig for your gals (maybe ask their input)
- Invite them to rent the dresses you’ve picked
- Keep track of the orders via your dashboard
- Make sure everyone returns the dresses when they’re done.
Pretty simple, right? We thought so.
Here are five looks we’re super digging from Vow to Be Chic:
Lily by Theia, rent for $95, buy for $495
Phoebe by JY Jenny Yoo, rent for $80, buy for $230
Union by Joanna August, rent for $95, buy for $225
Courtney by Donna Morgan, rent for $90, buy for $290
Ashley by Jim Hjelm, rent for $75, buy for $190
What do you think, BABs? Would you make the bridesmaid dress process stupid-simple by renting from Vow to Be Chic? Which look is your favorite?
Happy Monday, BABs! I hope your Halloweekend was wonderful and amazing and so wildly full of fun and candy. For today’s Get Inspired styleboard, I thought I’d get a jump on the holiday season and the soon-to-be abundance of greens and reds and holly jolly that will surround us everywhere we go. Jade is a really striking color of green that will pop in photos, but is a little softer in shade than kelly green, making it a little easier for a variety of skin tones to pull off. Taupe as a neutral would look amazing here and there to tone down the high-energy jade, and ivory isn’t as stark as white so it blends well with the other two.
