    The Importance of Personal Style

    Last updated 11 hours ago

    What is personal style? The expression of your personality, tastes and preferences as reflected in your décor and clothing choices. It’s your own sense of fashion, accessorizing and how you outwardly present yourself.

    Fashion isn’t supposed to boss you around according to the current fads. It makes all the difference when you own your look. You can get the job of your dreams, boost your confidence or be the life of the party.  Creating a signature look with a particular silhouette, specific accessory or favorite color shows off your personality to the world around you.  It’s entirely possible to get everything you’ve ever wanted in life once you figure out who you are on the inside and out.

    How to find your personal style:

    So you have no idea how to define your look? Here are some hints of finding yourself in the mix of all the short-lived fads and the timeless trends.

    ·         What famous person’s closet would you most like to raid? Emulate their style, but make it your own by dressing to complement your body.

    ·         Ransack Pinterest.  There are boards upon boards featuring women’s fashion to help you find the looks that you love. Start a “Style” board of your own and as you pin more and more outfits to it, you’ll start to get a clear picture of your dream closet.

    ·         Snap your own photos when you see a store mannequin or magazine ad that catches your eye. Save these up like your Pinterest Board to create the big picture of your personal tastes.

    ·         Make sure your favorite trends are appropriate for your age, lifestyle and occupation. You want your clothing to help you get ahead, not bring you down.  Think about where you want to go in life and how your wardrobe can get you there. Dress for success is not just a worn out phrase; it’s proven advice.

    ·         Above everything, your fashion choices need to accentuate You.  Dress to fit your body type, comfort zone and budget.  If you’re more comfortable in ballet flats than heels, don’t get unnecessary blisters. Dress those flats up to match your look.  If you prefer loose fitting clothing over skinny jeans, then rock those chic blouses as your signature look.

    Lending Luxury has helped countless women find themselves and come out of their shells with the help of gorgeous designer gowns covered in sparkles or pleats or even a color they never thought they’d try on before. Check out our dresses and separates to aid you on your fashion journey!

    Trend Alert: Back Cutouts

    Last updated 2 days 11 hours ago

    This development in Spring fashion is hitting our prom dresses hard and everyone is loving it! Introducing Back Cutouts, the sexy yet chic way to flaunt some skin! These are deliberate openings in the main structure of the garment. They range from tiny peeks of skin to nearly full-on open backs.  The shapes of the cutouts range, as does the placement, so there is a flattering look for everyone out there. If you’re trying to hide “bra bulge” then go for either a high or a low cutout like the one featured on the blue Primavera gown, steer clear of the center of the back like our white Nicole Miller is boasting. For a super sexy look, check out the super low openings that hint at skin rarely seen when wearing evening wear like on our blue Shimmer gown. Or “go big or go home” as they say and rock an almost bare back in our Musani dress!

    Don’t feel brave enough for these sexy little peeks of skin? Try this simple back workout and tone up! You’ll be ready to own this trend in your designer dress rental! For even more back cutouts on our designer gowns and even short dresses, check out our Board!


    Blue Primavera – Rent for $80 (retails for $370) 

    Red Primavera – Rent for $100 (retails for $400) 

    Green Musani – Rent for $160 (retails for $1050) 

    White Nicole Miller – Rent for $55 (retails for $420) 

    Blue Shimmer – Rent for $70 (retails for $350)
