Badgley Mischka's Midnight Glamour Dress, $75 at Rent the Runway

This September, two of my oldest friends are getting married—to each other. I am wildly excited about this, partly because it's super-romantic (they met at age four!) and partly because the wedding is going to involve half of our kindergarten class getting down like it's time for recess. The occasion calls for something highly danceable, but since it's a black-tie wedding, it needs to look appropriately formal, too. That's why I've been stalking Badgley Mischka's Midnight Glamour Dress on Rent the Runway. For $75, you get a four-day rental of all the sequins you can handle, in a wide-strapped, leg-revealing shape that won't trip you up on the dance floor. I'm definitely not the only one who's noticed its charms—the dress has 365 positive reviews on the site.
