As much as I love a good party, I find my office Holiday party to be so stressful. I have a strict rule about not drinking with co-workers, because some white people tend to get way too damn comfortable at social functions when they’ve been drinking. All of a sudden they start sounding a little…Trumpy, and want to know how your hair feels. So then I feel compelled to drink from the top shelf open bar, because how else am I supposed to get through that? Hence, I focus my energy on deciding what to wear, and just hoping for best with everything else.
This year I decided to try Rent the Runway’s Style Studio to put together my look. My full rundown on the experience is in the previous post, so I’ll spare you that tale here, but click through for the options pulled by Senior Stylist Asia Jones, and my buying tips. If you see a look you love, click the designer. All links are shoppable on Rent the Runway.
Look 1 featured this stunning blush colored Badgley Mischka racer back sequined gown. The color and fit were amazing. I genuinely feel like I could’ve worn that dress all day. It was a bit too formal for my office Holiday party, but I’ll definitely keep it in mind for New Years. WARNING: Objects in sequins may appear larger than they actually are. Except my butt. It really is that big. Anyway, guess what I just realized? This cut of racer-back is A1 for hiding back rolls. Whoop whoop!
