This is my *last* look from NYFW I have to post. I’m only a month late but hey — better late than never, right?

This was probably my favorite dress to wear during NYFW, and apparently it was a popular one. I showed up to the rewardStyle party the Monday night of Fashion Week, and another blogger had the same dress on. Oops! Regardless of the unintentional “twinsies” moment, I still felt like a total rockstar in this dress, and it was the perfect ensemble to wear for a long day of shows, parties and the Bloglovin’ Awards.

So how did I manage to wear amazing designer fashions every day during NYFW? I have to credit Rent the Runway and Bag Borrow or Steal for allowing me to do so! I’m pretty sure if I actually purchased all of the designer duds I rocked during NYFW, it would have costs probably 4 months of my rent. If you’re ever headed to Fashion Week in the future and don’t want to drop a fortune on designer dudes, I’d highly recommend renting. Fake it until you make it, my friends. You can still looks like a million bucks, even with an entry level marketing salary.

Since the next Fashion Week isn’t until February, RTR is also an awesome option for fall weddings and upcoming holiday events. Check out my other RTR looks here and here!
