Galentines Day One Stylish Party-92Valentine’s day is just over two weeks away! Whether you are headed out for a date night with your significant other or attending a Galentine’s Day party like the one I hosted, it is the perfect excuse to get dressed up. So I am going to let you in on a little secret. Well, it’s not really a secret, but it is something that has simplified my life and taken the stress out of outfit planning for special occasions. Don’t buy a new outfit, RENT IT!Galentines Day One Stylish Party-74For my Galentine’s Day party, I knew I wanted something fresh and modern with a bit of a retro twist. With so many other details and logistics to plan for the party, I didn’t want to worry about shopping for a new dress on top of it all. So I turned to Rent the Runway where I found an adorable lemon yellow DVF dress. The quality of the dress was amazing and I loved that my rental came with a back-up size so there was room for error in case my normal size didn’t fit.

A few of my friends who attended the party also found their dress on Rent the Runway too.Galentines Day One Stylish Party-82
