Marchesa Cocktail Dress


Y’all already know I’m a Rent the Runway fiend. I’m an Unlimited member and I definitely use the service to its fullest potential. Until this weekend, I had never rented the same piece twice. But like… it was so worth it. Isn’t this Marchesa cocktail dress just the absolute cutest?

What I’m Wearing:

Dress: Marchesa Notte (via Rent the Runway) / Purse: Kate Spade, old (similar, similar)
Heels: Ann Taylor / Earrings: Kate Spade / Ring: BaubleBar

I wore this dress last winter to my friend’s engagement party in Austin and then again this past weekend to my friend (and fellow blogger!) Cameron‘s wedding here in Dallas. Both times, the dress was such a hit. I think it’s the 3D tinsel. Because nothing says “party” like a dress with 3D poofs made out of sparkly tinsel. That’s a fact.

Oh… and it has pockets. And let’s be real: having pockets is the best.

The fabulous dress aside, I had such fun at Cameron’s wedding. I brought my best friend Brad as my date. Somehow, we ended up at a table alone. Literally just the two of us. An entire table, full of [filled] champagne flutes. And it was amazing. Obviously we downed all of the bubbly (I mean really, who do you think I am if you thought I wouldn’t?!?!) and we spent the entire evening talking about life and love and planning out our futures (the current plan is at least 4 houses across 3 countries. Totally reasonable). Sounds like a successful Saturday night, right?
