I didn’t know where else to stick this besides in dresses, but it’s not related to my wedding dress. In a few weeks, FI and I are attending a black-tie event at the aquarium in our city. It is a legal event (FI is in law school), and I am at a loss at what to wear. The attire is stated as “black-tie optional,” and FI will be wearing a tuxedo, so of course I want to match his level of spiffiness. Unfortunately, I don’t own anything appropriate and decided to try out Rent the Runway. I don’t feel like spending a ton, but I found three dresses I am interested in renting and would love the Bees input on which one I should go with. 1. Badgley Mischka black gown 2. Rebecca Taylor navy gown 3. Nicole Miller black & silver gown FYI, I am about 5’7′ and weigh around 128 lbs. (I wear a size 4). Thanks for your help!! Any general info/experience with Rent the Runway would also be great!

annb9: I love the second one! It’s beautiful. After that, I like the last one, then the first. This sounds like an awesome event to attend – I love getting dressed up. Also ~ my friend uses RTR ALL the time and she LOVES it.

#2! I love navy dresses at black tie events. And, I think it’s the prettiest dress.

I would choose the second one. In a sea of black you will be stunning.

I like #2 the most– I really love navy with black. Also, you sound about my height/weight and I think that the last one wouldn’t do you any favors and may even make you look shorter with the allover sequins and fitted sheath look…

Thanks, everyone! I’ve decided to go with #2! That was my instant favorite, and after getting so many positive responses, it was a done deal 🙂

annb9: no.2 is fabulous and definitely also couple with a necklace as it is low cut but the necklace length is just right to make it no issue. Gorgeous dress!

Will this be shipped to you? I would worry about a strapless dress that you can’t try on before. So my vote is for the last one!

annb9: they’re all so pretty I don’t think you could go wrong. But I really like the second one!
