Red Rover

Ok, I’m noticed a trend – I’m obsessed with sweaters now that fall is here. Especially the kind that are bold in color. So when I saw this Derek Lam one from Rent The Runway, I instantly imagined it with these red pants I got from TJ Maxx a couple months ago and knew they would look so cute together.

I was a girl who loved pink, but now I’m a woman who loves red! It’s so fun to wear and it always stands out. ALWAYS. Plus, there’s something about a monochromatic look that makes a statement especially if you choose something as bold as red.

Lately, it’s been that kind of weather where it’s cold enough for a sweater but you don’t need a coat. So a sweater like this is just perfect. I can switch it out and wear it with denim or even over a short sleeve midi dress to make it fall friendly.

I got this Derek Lam sweater from Rent The Runway’s Unlimited subscription which makes renting designer pieces so affordable and accessible. Buying new clothes or outfits for every week can become taxing. With RTR Unlimited you can rent 4 pieces at a time, unlimited. Even if you only rent pieces once a week, that’s 16 pieces in a month.

RTR Unlimited is $159 plus tax (which covers cleaning, shipping and insurance) and if you use the code MATTIEPERK40 you get 40% off your first month. Especially for those months where you have lots of events to attend (like holiday season!) – this subscription is a godsend. This month, I’ll be rotating pieces from them to show you the variety of pieces the subscription offers.

Happy November!
