FASHIONISTAS: LISTEN UP!
The fashion Gods have answered our prayers.
Carrie Bradshaw’s assistant, Louise, was not kidding when she introduced Carrie to the world of handbag rental. Louise referred to handbag rental as “Netflix for purses,” but really it is a gift sent from above for every broke girl trying to live the fabulous life of Carrie Bradshaw or any other successful individual that can afford the patchwork Louis Vuitton bag.
So for some of us ladies who are ballin’ on a budget, there is hope; you can still be fabulous thanks to handbag and dress rentals. Tons of websites offer rentals and at really great prices.
Renttherunway.com has a huge selection which includes business casual clothing and accessories. For a flat rate of $139 a month you have access to three rentals at a time that you can keep for as long as you want. Plus they offer 20% off your first month’s payment.
If you aren’t into the unlimited access and paying monthly, you could do an individual rental for 4 to 8 days on any item. The individual rental prices are also very reasonable. This is perfect if you need to look fabulous for one particular event.
The trend is taking all broke fashionista by storm. Honestly, it is such a good idea to rent dresses and handbags for less than half the price. How many times can you be seen in the same dress, or sporting the same bag? Not many.
