Warehouse dress, borrowed c/o Lendperk. Army jacket, American Eagle (similar). Blue cluster statement necklace, Simply Vera (similar). Cobalt t-strap flats, Gap. Tote bag, Madewell.
When I was contacted by Lendperk to do a trial run of their dress rental program, I was thrilled. Described as a "Netflix for dresses", Lendperk is the perfect service for those with eclectic tastes and small budgets. Personally, I loved the fact that I could rent dresses that retailed for over $200 for just $20 a month. I have a bad habit of falling in love with a dress, wearing it the next day, then losing my enchantment within weeks. A rental service just for dresses is the perfect solution for that! The first dress you rent is free (and if you sign up for a monthly plan, the months that you don't rent a dress even roll over), so take advantage and rent a beautiful frock!
The reason I chose this dress by Warehouse (you can purchase it on from ASOS) is because of how different it is from anything I currently own. I'm typically a pretty relaxed, casual dresser with a few party items up my sleeves just in case. But this dress is definitely more formal than the majority of what I own. Because I wore it to class, I wanted to tone it down just a bit. I made it more relaxed and day time appropriate by adding flats and a coordinating statement necklace, my trusty army jacket, and a tote bag for my books and thing. I love a luxe/casual mix!
Overall, I would say the biggest perk about the dress rental service from Lendperk is the fact that if you really love a dress, you can try before you buy. Too often I'm not one hundred percent satisfied with my purchases online, but this ensures that if I fall in love with a style on the Lendperk website, I know it will work before I decide to take the plunge. This dress is currently sold out in my size at ASOS, but I would definitely consider adding it into my wardrobe as an investment piece.
