Engagement Party Outfit Inspiration

One of my best friends (& sorority little!), Brianna & her fiance, Matthew are moving to London for a year before their Spring 2015 wedding. I’ve been having the best time helping her to plan, channeling my old wedding planner days. Since they’ll be abroad for a year (seriously, how lucky are these two??), we are having their engagement party/going away party a couple weeks before they leave. Tomorrow (!!!) is the big day, and I am beyond excited. The wonderful Willet’s will be photographing the whole thing, so I can’t wait to share details in the next few weeks (including the invitations I designed).

In the meantime, I wanted to share my outfit inspiration! The party is semi-formal, which I love since I haven’t had an excuse to wear a nice dress since my last sorority formal almost a year ago.

Ultimately, I decided to go with Rent the Runway. I really love the concept because as much as I enjoy expanding my limited closet, I really don’t have a lot of excuses to rewear formal dresses. Plus, the types of dresses I was leaning towards were more money that I’m willing to spend, especially with my upcoming California trip. I have rented a couple dresses in the past & loved the experience. I didn’t want to take the dress off!

I scoured the website, but it didn’t take me long to pick. This Badgley Mischka beauty was too hard to resist!


The dress arrives tonight, so I’m planning on RUNNING home to try it on. I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
