I think that October might have been my favorite month of the Correspondence Club yet! The theme this month was very timely- Fall Favorites. I asked the members of the club to write about some of their favorite fall activities and what they like most about this season. You could also coordinate your gift to follow the theme, so you’ll see lots of fall-related and halloween goodies in the pictures above!

I had lots of fun putting together a gift for my partner Aly, and I had to include candy corn (my favorite Halloween candy). In return, Aly sent me the funniest letter and a little present related to one of her favorite fall drinks- a pumpkin spice latte. I’m also still writing to my partner from the last cycle, Tracy, who’s just the sweetest. She sent me an awesome glittery mask, which I’ve already worn as part of a cat burglar Halloween costume! Two other members of the club, Christine and Anastasia, also wrote about CClub this month, so you should definitely check out their posts to see what they sent and received!

Do you want to join the Correspondence Club for November?  We’d love to have you!  If you would like to participate in November, please send me your information by midnight on Wednesday (October 31st at 11:59pm EST).

Rent the Runway: Sponsored Video

When I heard about Rent the Runway‘s new campaign to use real women as models, I was immediately in love with the idea. As a fashion blogger, I love getting outfit inspiration from other real girls, which I why I think it makes perfect sense for a site like Rent the Runway to show their clothes on actual customers.

In case you’re not familiar with Rent the Runway, it is a website where you can rent the perfect luxury/designer dress for that special occasion. It’s so great for young women like me who are on a budget, but still want to be able to afford a fabulous dress.

When I shop online, I like to google the particular clothing item to see what it might look like on a real person. Now that Rent the Runway has decided to use customer photos on their website, that saves me the trouble of searching for those photos myself! Check out the adorable little clip below to learn more about the campaign- Our Runway!
