Abby Bales Rent the Runway Dress Diaries

I have been loving the dresses I’ve rented from Rent the Runway in the past and wanted to share the fabulously fashionable experience with one of my best friends for her 30th birthday.  For a while RTR was my little secret, but friends who care will definitely share!

Monica and I met attending college in Colorado together and have been friends for over 10 years. It’s no surprise that when we both moved to NY we would be sharing all of New York experiences together. When it was time to answer the big birthday question- What am I going to wear? – I had to get her to use RTR.

 

 

I chose both of our dresses (and Monica’s request) for dinner and drinks to celebrate the festive occasion.  I wore the Gryphon Metal Chain Striped Dress and paired it with nude python heels and gold bangles and earrings for a laid-back yet stylish look for a night on the town.  I loved my dress and received compliments all night.

For the birthday girl, I thought something a little more sparkly and fun that said “Hey, it’s my birthday!” would be appropriate.  I chose the Badgley Mischka Fifth Avenue Showstopper Dress and she wore her favorite white kitten heels and her always gorgeous smile.  Monica looked amazing and felt special in her fabulous dress as we hit up all our favorite places in Tribeca with the girls into the wee hours of the morning.  It was a great night and super-fun way to celebrate such a big birthday.
