If you saw my triumphant return to YouTube this week, there was no avoiding my blabbering on Bag Borrow or Steal. Sparked by my friend Carlye's article on Racked, I opted to throw money out the window on a Céline Trapeze rental.... and the rest was history.
I love the service and think it's great for someone who knows he/she can't afford to commit to one bag he/she might get sick of in a few months (AKA me) or someone who simply will never be able to afford a Celine bag (also me). When I think about my insane San Francisco rent, I just can't rationalize saving up all that it takes to own a bag that I can't guarantee I'm going to shit my pants over in 4 months.
And, thankfully, once I read their FAQ (because who bothers to read that before you make a potentially dangerous purchase, right?!) I learned the insurance cost is included in the rental and you are actually in the clear if the bag gets a little fucked up... you just can't make a habit of ruining bags or else they cut you off. Exhale. That eases a lot of my anxiety :)
Bonus: In honor of National Handbag Day (lol) 15% off a buy or borrow with promo code 15NHD2014!
I'M RICH BITCH. BLOOP!
Would you rent a bag or do you think it's a big waste of moolah?
