When I wrote my Spring Style blog post, I was CERTAIN COVID restrictions were coming to an end! I was confident life would be back to “normal” by summer…and…here we are. Although New York City is on the brink of normalcy with retailers and restaurants slowly reopening (within restriction of course), I’m ready to show off my summer style NOW(even if it is just for dinner with my husband or socially distant drinks with friends on my stoop).
One of the BEST things I’ve done for myself during quarantine is edit my wardrobe. Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time asking myself the important wardrobe questions like what colors am I drawn too? What fabrics do I find most comfortable (and sweat the least in LOL)? What styles make me feel the most ME?
Recently I shared on the gram that I’m honestly OVER buying everything brand new. For the longest time I associated the concept of “new” with being THE BEST but I’ve realized that’s just not true and quite frankly unrealistic! Life as an adult, running my own business, adventuring around NYC and managing expenses requires prioritized spending—and if I’m REALLY real, shopping weekly for the latest fast fashion piece I’ll style once or twice just doesn’t cut it.
Don’t get me wrong, I still LOVE mixing up my wardrobe with new-to-me, standout items. But instead of budget breaking spending, I’ve transitioned into a more sustainable mentality; I’m now taking advantage of shopping pre-loved items through wardrobe rental! Not only does this add “new” back into my wardrobe but it also allows me budget-friendly access to brands my favorite celebs and style crushes wear daily!
But with the wardrobe rental business growing, where do you start?
Having consolidated my closet to a capsule wardrobe of key items and statement pieces, I’ve found accessorizing allows me to make outfits new, different, and interchangeable. And the key accessory here for me is jewelry! Statement jewelry is the perfect way to mix up a look while adding an expression of unique taste and personality! SOOOO that makes my go-to for rentals an EASY choice…
Red Carpet Rocks is a subscription-free, demi-fine (meaning a combination of fine and costume jewelry) 4 day rental service providing hand-made jewels, precious stones, and other red carpet level jewels for $39! Yes. You read that price correctly! Just as the name would lead you to believe, these pieces are high-end, yet still interchangeable between special events, a day at the office or a night out with friends! Though I’ve sported the UNBELIEVABLERihanna Crystal Choker and absolutely ROCKED the Cindy Tassel Earrings, my favorite Red Carpet Rocks rental so far is the Bianca Bib Necklace! This statement necklace is not only the perfect beaded compliment to a cocktail dress but also adds a bit of high-end glam to a denim and Tshirt combo! And if that isn’t cool enough, the Red Carpet Rocks owner Urvi and her team are there for you every step of the rental process, adding a personalized touch to your new favorite statement piece!
So if you’re like me and in search of a budget-friendly way to add celeb level glam to an everyday look, OR you have an endless list of upcoming events this sunny season, check out Red Carpet Rocks! Remember, no single item is over $39! With both FREE shipping AND returns, rent one fabulous jewel for $39, 2 pieces for $59 or 3 for $79!
