I’m always looking for an excuse to dress up, so when my boyfriend invited me to the 125th Anniversary at his family’s race track, Hawthorne Race Course, I could not pass it up. I was waiting for the perfect opportunity to rent a fabulous dress from Rent the Runway, and now was my chance!
After scrolling through my favorites, I decided to order this dress from Opening Ceremony. It was the perfect mix of sexy and sophisticated, and a modern twist on a classic LBD. The best part: it was only $35, even though it retails for over $400! Needless to say, RTR is a dream come true for anyone who has champagne taste on a beer budget.
I paired the dress with one of my favorite statement necklaces, the Natalie from Stella & Dot and my newest S&D piece, the Amelie bracelet. Top it off with some leather heels and I was off to the races (not literally, of course… too muddy!).

Though I may not have had much luck in the gambling department, I received compliments all night long! I will definitely be ordering from RTR again.
