Today is an exciting day as it marks 4 years of Southern Style! I honestly can't believe that this place still exists. So many people ask how I started blogging and I honestly just sat down at my computer with no real vision and clicked Publish on a post. It has certainly changed over the last few years but I am certainly thankful that I have it. I have met so many amazing people through this blog and had the opportunity to work with some of my favorite brands. In recent days with work changes + wedding planning + everything else going on, it's not always as easy to make sure there's a post up, but I'm reminding myself that this is supposed to be a fun place not a chore, and then it's totally worth it.
Stephen and I went to a wedding this past weekend and I decided to give Rent the Runway a try for the first time. I opted for a gorgeous dress - a blue and black metallic print with a low-v neck. As you can see, that is not the dress that is in this post. I received an email the day before it was to arrive that my dress choice had either been damaged or returned late so I would have to choose something different. To be honest, I wasn't thrilled with that email, but I was thankful that they let me choose another dress and sure enough, it was on my doorstep that next evening.
I wanted to do something a little more out of the box since I was doing RTR but with the short time frame, there weren't as many options that were available in my size and appropriate for the dress code of the wedding (cocktail but not black tie). I finally picked this Trina Turk dress and chose it in two different sizes in case one didn't fit. A perfect fit would've been in between sizes but I did love how this dress looked. I tried to find this pair of heels in store but it was too last minute - I think it would've been the perfect addition to this classic ensemble!
Have you tried RTR before? Would love to know what you love/don't love. And as always, thank you for continuously reading Southern Style. I am so thankful for each of you!
