I had my first experience with Rent the Runway this past weekend.  We had a wedding to attend in New York and I decided to save money and rent.  I had been eyeing this dress for a while and despite the description that this dress was for smaller chested girls, I decided to rent it.  I ordered it in my regular size and one size up.  My usual size fit me everywhere except the bust (shocker!)  With a little effort, I could zip it up but felt a little uncomfortable and decided to wear the next size up.  It was much more comfortable in my bust but was large in the waist which caused it to gape a little. Oh, the woes of having an hour glass shape.

I love the ease of renting and the customer service at Rent the Runway.  I will definitely be renting from them more often but will probably listen to their sizing suggestions a little more next time.

Wanted: Crop Tops

I shy away from any clothing that is too form fitting or revealing.  I guess that would explain why I have a lack of crop tops.  Lately, I have been wearing a lot of high waisted midi skirts that would just look better with a crop top.  The shirt I am wearing in these photos (a crop top but loose fitting) is actually tied in a knot in the back. So, any suggestions on where I can find great fitted-but-not-too-tight-crop-tops would be much appreciated!

Weekends are now packed with buying bulk and comparing the prices of refrigerators. We did manage to go to a winery on Friday night with some friends and watch the USA Portugal game at a big viewing party so I guess we snuck in some “younger” activities too.
