Self Portrait

We’re continuing our brand appreciation here at Style Lend and we couldn’t not mention one of our favorites: Self Portrait.

If you like flashing some skin in unexpected ways, this is definitely the brand for you! Tasteful yet sexy and (a little) scandalous, we love the cutwork details this brand is known for.

These are some of our favorite Self Portrait pieces and the best part is you can rent all of them for under $70 versus buying for over $400. (Because we love saving you money!)

Fashion & Sustainability

“It is our goal to raise awareness around the impact fashion has on the environment and at the same time offer sustainable solutions and choices. It is our mission to lead and inspire a sustainable way to be fashionable.”– Reformation

It’s Earth Day this friday!  You know that we here at Style Lend love the earth, and are extremely passionate about responsible and sustainable fashion (check out why our CEO, Lona, decided to start a business for renting clothes here).

Reformation incorporates fashionable clothing with sustainability, and that’s why it’s one of our favorite brands.  Next to renting, it’s probably one of the most responsible fashion choices you could make.  We’ll let them explain:

“We source sustainable fabrics and vintage garments, and incorporate sustainable practices throughout our supply chain to make beautiful styles at a fraction of the environmental impact generated by most fashion brands. From our heat-reflecting roof and use of renewable energy, to the recycled hangers in our stores and 100% recycled packaging for every order shipped, sustainability is core to our business at every level.”

So in honor of our Earth day appreciation, we dedicate this blog post to you, Reformation! Here are some of our favorite pieces we have available to rent on Style Lend.

r1

We adore this Reformation Lucielle dress. It is a long chiffon wrap gown with lunging neckline and a tie waist so they can fit just right, plus it is sourced via sustainable fabric and vintage garments. (And you can rent it for only $40!)

r2

We love that this halter dress can easily be taken from day time casual to night time glam!  Rent it for $28/week.

r5

This grey ombre dress ($30/week) is absolutely perfect for a day in the park, or a backyard picnic.

r6

The Henry dress has a boho-chic and playful vibe that make it perfect for any music festival, just throw on a flower crown and you’re good to go!  Rent it for only $40/week.

r4

Who says sustainabililty can’t be edgy? The Zinc Skirt is an A-line leather mini skirt with a high fitted waist and hidden zip closure in the back, and is available to rent for only $27/week.

r3

The Ventura Skirt is a medium weight textured woven, midi A-line skirt with a high waist, side pockets and a button-down front with a slit.  At only $20/week it’s perfect for every occasion!

We love this brand and we know you will too!  Check out all of our Reformation items we have on both our website and app!

DRESSES

First things first: the dresses.  Alexander McQueen is known for ethereal dresses with elaborate and detailed prints, unique and exquisite silhouettes.  The uniqueness of the designs not only makes it a fashionista favorite, but also extremely hard to replicate anywhere else.
