Some clothing is just plain beautiful. My lifestyle doesn’t require gorgeous dresses. But, like gazing at a beautiful painting, sunrise, or big city skyline, some dresses evoke happiness and even awe.
I was inspired by the following dresses in a brochure from Rent The Runway (they are not a sponsor), where you choose and “book” a designer dress for an event, then return it. And although it’s impractical and a little loony, I might rent one for a weekend. The pizza shop may not recover from the sudden infusion of beauty. ツ
|Alberta Ferretti “Flora” dress. Perfect for dinner at Continental Flambe (or Beachside Cafe)|
|Matthew Williamson gown. Love the black side panels and Asian print.|
|Makes me feel like dancing: possibly my favorite, a rich green frock by Nina Ricci.|
And/or I could own a lovely dress for well under $100, if I Shop Secondhand.
|I could shop at Etsy, or eBay, or sew my own.|
Would you/ have you ever considered renting a pricey designer dress? And what does a dress need to possess to make you smile?
Have a beauty-loving day, and stay fabulous,
Friendly reminder: Visible Monday starts Sunday at around 5PM. Be there for all the visible fabulous-ness!
