This will be the first inauguration we will experience as residents of the area and we're hoping to join in the festivities. We were hoping to score some tickets to the inaugural ball, but due to an error on Ticketmaster's part, we, along with scores of others, will not be going*. This hasn't stopped me from fantasizing about what gorgeous gown I would have worn had we gotten tickets.
Since my gown wearing occasions are few and far between, investing in a fancy gown would be a waste. Rent the Runway seems to be the perfect solution; you can rent fancy dresses at a fraction of the retail cost. Although I've never rented anything from this site, I love the concept. Plus, the selection is amazing.

If I decided to purchase a dress, these are a few of the dresses that caught my eye:
Anyone lucky enough to have tickets to an inaugural ball? What would you want to wear to such an occasion?
*Not that we would have gotten tickets without the error, but it was still disappointing.
