Rent The Runway/Fashism Contest

A few weeks back I entered this outfit into Fashism's "Rent the Runway" contest.
The rules were quite simple, just submit any outfit shot with a question, and you were entered.
(yeah, I can handle that)

and believe it or not, I won!

And a big winner I am indeed...I got a $50 credit to RentTheRunway.com
Rent the Runway is similar to Netflix, only for designer clothing off the runways!

You can rent a garment for 4-8 days, it arrives dry-cleaned and ready to go
(they even give you a 2nd size, or a backup choice just in case the first one doesn't work out)
then just put it in the prepaid package and return it in the mail.

(as I hear, the average rental cost is around 90%less than the designer's asking price, so my credit will get me started on what might become a quick obsession for those festive occasions that are far and few between--but at least I have this outlet to make sure I'm dressed to the nines anytime those events pop up)

So, wish me luck--I've got throughout the month of January to use my store credit
(as well as come up with someplace to wear such an item).

First I've got to take a peek at hundreds upon hundreds of items before I even begin to narrow down my choices.
But if I were to have to immediately pick just one thing, from one designer,

I'd probably satisfy my inner wannabe rocker girl and opt for a Balmain mini dress

(particularly from the Fall '09 collection, I'm still in love with them).

Ooooooh, do you think they have one?

It'd be insane to have your hands on one of those dresses. INSANE, I say. I have no idea how I'd begin to narrow down your choices, or where would be deemed awesome enough to wear such a thing...but congrats, that's so exciting! I can't wait to see what you decide on.

Ok, so I totally mistyped what I meant there: how I'd begin to narrow down MY choices is what I meant. The way its written originally is somehow creepy...hahaha, sorry!
