Fashion month is wrapping up this week in Paris. So wish I could have been there. I have been following along with all the happenings abroad on Instagram and YouTube via a number of influencers. One can’t argue that these social platforms have become the go to for coverage and I hope that my coverage is beneficial and that you find it enlightening and fun.
For those of you that follow me regularly you had a sneak peek of what I wore to NYFW. Today I am bringing you a closer look. I wore pink, red, peach and gold. Red and pink are definitely having a moment, even my photographer observed this was a trend she noticed while shooting street style, so I was certainly in good company.
I had a very positive experience with them. I placed the order at about 1 PM on a Friday and I had it by Saturday afternoon
Four of the pieces I wore I rented from Rent The Runway and I must say I had a very positive experience with them. I placed the order at about 1 PM on a Friday and I had it by Saturday afternoon, I believe it arrived around 4:30 PM. And when it came time to return the items I just took them to the store on 15th street in Manhattan. The return was seamless—all I needed to do was scan the items in at the return kiosk and that was it. You can mail them in as well, but I personally prefer doing the return in the store.
I signed up for the $89/month plan in which you can borrow four items at time and you can keep them for a month. As stated everything arrived within 24 hours or so and everything fit. I like that I can do the returns at the store, however I can not borrow items in the store at the $89 plan. You can only do this a la cart or on the unlimited plan which is $159/month. That would be the one caveat. I think for $89/month you should also have the option to borrow in the store as well as online. Though the representative I spoke with said that this may be reconsidered in the future which is also stated on the website so I hope that it does change.
it was very warm and long so it kept me cozy while looking super chic and fashion forward
In the meantime lets move on to what I was wearing. The coat is from Same Day and was perfect for FW in February—it was very warm and long so it kept me cozy while looking super chic and fashion forward. One day I paired it with a gold pleated A-Line top from Opening Ceremony. This top is super dramatic and was a bit hard to style but once I figured it out I thought this piece really took my look to the next level. I paired it with my Zara pleated skirt and my Michael Korrs dad sneakers.
The next day I wore the coat with a three tiered ruffle metallic skirt from Delfi Collective which I wore with my retro-style white Sandro top that I picked up in Paris. I finished off the look with hot pink tights and my white Sam Edelman ankle boots. And for an additional pop of color I added my red Hello Kitty bag from Pinko. I love this bag. I got this bag for my Birthday and I could not be happier. Have any of you used Rent The Runway? And would you consider a monthly subscription?
