I Need a Gown, Wish Me Luck!

I’m going to a white tie event next month in Newport, RI, to celebrate my cousin’s Nobel Prize. But I need a gown. A GOWN. I’ve been asking around to find out where you can even find one that’s affordable and everyone is suggesting Rent the Runway.

The only thing I worried about with Rent the Runway is if you rent by the day (or days) then I would need to wait until right up until the event to pick one. I don’t know about not knowing what I’m going to wear until days before. And everything is sure to be too long, I’m short! (I can’t wear heels, foot problems.)

I’m going to spend the weekend searching at a bunch of places that were suggested to me by friends on Facebook. If I can’t find anything I like and can afford I will fallback on Rent the Runway.

Here is my cousin accepting the Nobel Prize.
