we have shown you 6 of my favorite cocktail dress looks here and here, and now it’s time for some of gorgeous evening looks. i can’t even explain how fun it was to dress up in these pretty dresses!

and don’t miss this $500 giveaway with them on

the first was this that feels like marilyn when you put it on!

that one would be an awesome one to rent for a fancier wedding or black tie event. instant princess effect! and i love the soft pink lip color that kelly used, it’s by anastasia called dusty rose. such a subtle color but works really well with a more dramatic eye.

this is $800 and cost $125 to rent. i loved the quilted material, it felt so comfortable and fitted. the blue and green  jewel tones were also a really nice twist.

if you are like me, you tend to like a designers cuts and body shapes, so multiple dresses from their collections fit nicely on you. i was really loving cynthia rowley when i was trying a bunch of dresses on, so luckily you can on the site to make it easier to look for something you like. i thought was so stunning!

one more post coming up soon!

did you see our first cocktail dress post a few days ago, here? this one has 3 more of my favorite cocktail party looks that you can rent from . it’s so awesome that you can rent a $500+ designer dress for sometimes less than $75! all the designers have different rental prices, but you can get some amazing deals. when i think about how many weddings or events i bought dresses for and only wore once or twice, i feel so silly for not using

this long was the perfect 70’s look, i was OBSESSED with it. we decided it would be fun to all dress up in them and call ourselves the missoni house cats. this dress felt very california cool and would be ideal for a work event or laid back wedding.

this next was one that immediately caught my eye. colorful and unique…

i paired the dress with a cool silver clutch from  i just want to rent this to wear to a friend’s birthday party or a night out with the girls, martini in hand.

i don’t often wear jumpsuits, because i just think they look best on taller women. but this was really lovely. the wide legs and strapless bodice is a great combo for this piece. i even ordered it for a rehearsal dinner at my friend’s wedding coming up.

you can rent  and too!

which is your favorite cocktail look out of these 3 and these 3 from the first post? i’d love to hear!

when asked me if i wanted to collaborate on a project recently, i was a little hesitant to be honest. i figured it was mostly geared towards really formal events and i didn’t see much need for it myself. but i was very wrong in that! i searched and found tons of outfits i could be renting for work events, weddings and parties. i even casual everyday looks that would be too expensive to buy at full price. so i decided to team up with them and show you a few of my favorite looks for any occasion, broken up into four posts this week and next week. i became a serious fan during the process!

first i’m going to show you some of the casual cocktail dresses i was really into, and coming soon will be the fancier evening gowns. we wanted to stick with a 60’s-70’s vibe for the shoot, so we figured what would a better location be than this rented from …just check out that sweet pool!

i love this  with flared sleeves. it’s so unique and super comfortable. it’s both sophisticated and playful which is a hard combo to come by and something i’m particularly fond of, i don’t like to take fashion too seriously!  completed the look with a dark plum lipstick (which was a first for me) and i loved it! it’s an  and would be nice on hand to mix up your standard going out make up look.

this rachel zoe black tuxedo dress was amazing. i felt like i was instantly more powerful when i put it on. haha. i paired it with my favorite pair of black patent leather heels and some messy waves.

the tuxedo dress is just the right amount of sexy, while still keeping that classy look. i actually rented this look after the shoot for a work trip i had coming up. it’s subtle and sexy at the same time and works for a range of occasions. 

this lavendar elizabeth and james coat was one of my absolute favorite items on the site! i love the fact that i can rent a coat for a trip to the east coast, considering i don’t need to buy a ton of coats living in los angeles. i also love that i can wear it over cocktail dress. i hate having to wear a coat that ruins my look and this is the perfect solution. 

i paired it with a chunky silver dannijo cuff and a vera wang embellished shift dress. the whole look had a very 60’s vibe and would be perfect for a wedding or cocktail party.

see more looks next week! which one would you wear of these 3?

reading this post by kira makes me want to run out the door to my local farmers market right now. a weekly visit there is such a great ritual and we second kira’s low key approach! 

“The farmers market is the first place I head to on Saturday mornings. I roll out of bed, throw on something easy, don’t even worry about makeup, and stroll over to Prospect park, grabbing a coffee en route. Rain or shine, I love to rummage the beautiful seasonal produce and support my local farmers. The market feels like my weekly commune with nature and cooking dinner after work all week is a huge way I decompress. This month’s round up features essentials that contribute to a successful farmers market run.”  –
