2016 Washingtonian Style Setter Party.

This is a very overdue outfit.
Last October my roommate had an extra invitation to the 2016 Washingtonian Style Setters Party.
Needless to say, I was excited to be attending this exclusive gathering.
However, there was one small problem - I had to come up with an amazing outfit with only three days to spare! For those of you who have been in these types of situations it can be quite difficult finding a last-minute outfit.

Although, it’s situations like this that make me love Rent the Runway.
I’ve talked about them extensively (look here) and honestly swear by their services and pieces.
Anyways, I jetted over to the Rent the Runway site and scoped all the dresses that were available the day of the event.
Since it was last minute, there wasn’t an extensive selection in terms of edgier pieces.  After all, this was a style setters event so I couldn’t disappoint.

As I was scrolling through my options, I kept coming back to this particular dress.
It’s a classic black and white color combo, but it had some great details that made it stand out to me.
The kimono style of the dress not only stuck out to me, but it provided the edgy yet stylish look I was seeking.
Not sure if you can tell, but the belt has a great fringe detailing that moved while I walked, and these are the types of details that can really make a classic outfit stand out and make a statement.

The plunging neckline may be my favorite attribute of this dress.
Though it was certainly not the most stylish outfit I saw that evening, I was very pleased with my last-minute outfit, and it certainly garnered quite a few compliments!

Overall, the night was fun and filled with a plethora of fashionable people, as well as a variety of great bites and beverages from local restaurants around the district.
