Fashion for Rent
Remember in the First Sex and the City movie when Carrie's assistant (Jennifer Hudson) had a rental Louis Vuitton purse because she couldn't afford the real deal? I thought nothing of it at the time, until yesterday when I was reading the Rachel Zoe Report and she mentioned a website called Rent the Runway where you can rent designer dresses and jewellery for as low as $50 (including shipping and handling) So I registered yesterday and I already found a beautiful purple grecian gown that I would love to wear for an upcoming work Black Tie event!
While I was on the topic of renting designer outfits, I found a website called Bag, Borrow or Steal that allows you to rent brand name handbags and sunglasses for a subsciption fee of $60. But don't worry, this money goes towards your first bag rental. I found a great red Chanel purse that I would love to rent for a month (you can rent by week, month or season).
So, if you love designer clothes but can't afford to purchase them or would like to remain uncommitted, then check out these great sites for your next fashionable event!
