+ Look for Less

Morning Line: January 29

Dear Belle,

Can you help me find a sequin dress that doesn’t make me look like a Las Vegas showgirl?  My friend’s anniversary party is a Glitz and Glamour theme.  Where do people get this stuff?  

Thanks, I know this isn’t usual for your blog.  Caitlin

    That first dress is gorgeous. This sounds to me like a good time to try Rent the Runway.

    I actually rented a sequin dress for a holiday party this year and it was fabulous! You can rent from rent the runway online. The process is pretty easy and its affordable ($40-$80 for a dress). I found the quality much better than what I could afford in my ‘purchase’ budget (e.g., a $500 sequin dress looks classier than a $150 dress). I also don’t really have that many opportunities to look like a disco ball…so why fill up the closet, right?

      This is a much better option, especially for something you won’t wear very often like sequins. I bought a simple black sequin mini a few years ago for new years thinking I might wear it out or something. Well, my new years plans changed and that skirt is still in my closet with the tags on. Better to spend $50-100 on a fun dress now, than spend more on something that may look dated by the time you go to wear it the second time.

    I got a great navy sequin dress from Jessica Simpson of all places. Surprisingly modest (most sequin dresses I found were WAY too short) but still fun!
