Ladylike

My outfit
The dress 
Sweater-J. Crew, Dress (worn as a skirt)-Moschino via Rent the Runway, Shoes-Kate Spade, Earrings-Kenneth Jay Lane, Nail Polish-ButterLondon "slapper", iPhone case-Kate Spade 

I'm a sucker for a full skirt (or anything feminine and ladylike). This Moschino dress was one of my favorites from the Resort 2012 collection.  So when Rent the Runway asked if I wanted to try their service for an event I knew this was the dress I wanted to rent. Since it's still pretty chilly I decided to wear it with a chic cropped sweater and turn it into a skirt. To add a twist I went with turquoise nails and matching earrings. 

Rent the Runway is a great alternative for women who don't want to spend a fortune dressing for events. If you have something coming up and want to wear a fun designer piece I recommend checking them out.

This Moschino dress is divine! I've never tried Rent the Runway before, but I can see the logic. With fab pieces like that I'd be tempted to give it a try!
