Red Dress Collection

Keith and I attended Minnesota's Red Dress Collection last weekend.

I was so excited that I got to meet Chelsea and Emily at the event!

All of the proceeds from the night benefit the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign. Go Red For Women was created to empower women to take charge of their heart health and to raise awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women. You can donate to Go Red For Women here!

The event featured a fashion show with local designs modeled by local celebrities, a live performance by Kat Perkins, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and a silent auction. I even won a silent auction item!

I rented a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown from Rent The Runway and I can't recommend their services enough. I had actually purchased 2 other dresses in the weeks prior to the event, but had a bit of a panic on Friday morning when I decided that neither of them was right. To my surprise, RTR delivered in time for the event on Saturday evening! I was thrilled. It was the perfect dress for a Midwestern black tie event (not quite formal enough for a full length ball gown, but a step up from standard cocktail attire).

Have you ever rented a dress?
