These days my New Years Eve is typically spent on the sofa, in my pajamas, with the baby monitor by my side watching the ball drop on tv.  I used to love getting all dolled up and going out with the hubby to celebrate the New Year, but I think I love these new kind of New Years Eve traditions a bit more.  Now I get to sit and watch my little one sleep and reflect back on how much has changed over the last year and how truly blessed our family is; and I am filled with a great new excitement for the coming year to see how much more is going to change.

For those of you who are planning to attend a New Years party this year, there are only a few more days to get the perfect outfit.  Don’t stress yourself out though because you don’t have to rush out to the store, spend money on a dress you likely will end up forgetting in the back of your closet again until this time next year, or shop online and pay a ton to get a dress delivered in time for your party.  In fact, you don’t need to go to the store at all AND you don’t need to pay for shipping!  Just head over to Rent The Runway.  I found out about them a few years ago and have never looked back.  I used them for just about every occasion you can think of where you need to dress up, work, church, weddings, funerals, holidays, etc. It is so much easier than looking in the store for the perfect dress or looking online and trying to judge if you are purchasing the right size.

Rent the Runway is an amazing and simple way to dress for any event!  It allows you to keep your rental for 4 or 8 days (I highly recommend having your dress deliver 1 day prior to your event in case you end up hating the dress, they usually can overnight you a replacement at no cost to you).  The thing I love the most is the fact that you don’t need to know your perfect size, you can choose a size and then pick a back-up size for FREE!  There are tons of reviews from people who have rented the dresses, I always use the reviews to determine if I should order a size larger or smaller than my usual size.

RTR not only allows you to rent dresses but handbags, accessories, and other types of clothing (coats, pants, skirts ,shirts, etc.).  This is great because you can rent pieces seasonally without having to find a place to store them after the season is over.

Another great thing is that you do not need to wash or dry-clean the items before you return them.  You simply place the items you rented into the bag, remove the old UPS card, place the new UPS card, and put the tamper clip on the zipper and drop the package off at the nearest UPS drop box to return.  And when I say nearest drop box, I mean nearest, no matter where you are!  I often rent items and have them sent to my house, pack them up with me for vacation or corporate trip and then mail them back from my destination.  This also frees up space in my luggage for souvenirs.

So what are you waiting for?! Go over to and see what amazing pieces you can find to make your New Years special!
