Super excited to welcome, Libby, our intern, to the world of Slice of Lime. She and I have brainstormed up numerous topics that she will be writing about over the next several months that she is with Slice of Lime! These topics will be mostly fashion related to help connect our fashion forward seniors with the latest styles and trends. But enough from me….here’s Libby!!

Hey Slice Seniors! It’s Libby the intern here! For my first blog post I’m going to be talking about something pretty exciting… homecoming!! It may seem so far away but whether you’d like to admit it or not, you’ve probably already been looking for a dress. I know I have been. And I’m here to give you some tips to make it easier and more awesome for you this year!

Last school year I found about this awesome website from my friend, called Rent the Runway which is  just as cool as it sounds, you can actually rent designer dresses and accessories. From Badgley Mischka to Monique Lhullier to With RENT being the key word, no, you won’t be able to keep the dress but let’s be honest… how many times did you wear that sparkly dress after homecoming? So now you can get an even cooler, fiercer dress for your last homecoming! Here are some example I pulled off their website.

I’ll start off with probably the most common type of dress I’ve seen at past homecomings… the sequin dress. You saw a handful of them featured on the blog yesterday and while not over the top, they are still a common homecoming staple as they are very sparkly and fun.

Another pretty popular style that continues to make appearances at homecoming is the full girly skirt. Super cute and the options on Rent the Runway are different then what I have seen in stores!!

And lastly, you can never go wrong with a bodycon dress! These are super cool and edgy and come in a never ending variety of styles for girls who don’t like to go over the top but still like an eye catching dress.

While we are huge fans of our friends at Taylored for You & other local businesses, an alternative like Rent the Runway may work for you if what you’re seeing in local stores is just not doing it for you. The examples featured here are only a handful out of THOUSANDS of dresses available for rent!  They have tons more on their website, so go check it out!! Have fun and Happy Renting! ☺
