Dig This-Bag, Borrow or Steal

Stay Fashionable: By Any Means Necessary! 
Ballin on a budget? Well I know I am so  when someone told me that I could borrow or steal high fashion bags legally I was extremely HYPE!!! Weren’t you hype when you heard about
bagborroworsteal.com??? Wait… PLEASE tell me everyone has heard of the company Bag Borrow or Steal! Well, for those of you that’s been stuck in a unstylish closet for the past 2 years, here’s my speil on the company that allows you to switch Louis, Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Fendi, Juicy, Dior, and YSL bags every month. You pay a monthly fee, about $20, $40, $90 or $170, and get to “rent” handbags or jewelry and keep them as long as you like The idea is ssssooo simple (I should have been doing this with my own bags!). You sign up, pay a monthly fee based on the level of service you desire, and then you get to keep one handbag at a time of your choice to keep for as long as you want.

When you’re sick of an item, you mail it back and get a new one. A single designer purse can cost about $1200. You can spend the same amount ”borrowing” your purses and appear to outside observers that you have gone through more than 12 different thousand dollar bags in a years time. You could customize your purse ordering to match with a particular outfit or a special event. You would be in purse love every couple of weeks, which makes sense since the “it” handbags change about every month or so. And who can afford to keep buying new all the time?

 If keeping your bag trendy and your wardrobe fresh is at the top of your list (but you don’t have Hilton, Lohen, or Ricci kind of $$$) then this may be your answer.BUT there are some things to consider: If you are the type not to switch bags all the time, then the bagborroworsteal.com monthly membership might not be the way to go. For the price you are spending to keep the bag you love every month, you might as well save the money and actually purchase the bag on your own. It’s the difference between renting an apartment or buying a condo. ALSO, I am not too hype about the jewelry section. Although there are a lot of hot Chanel, David Yurman, & Vera Wang pieces, I am kind of grossed out by the fact that someone else wore it before me. Can you imagine putting something in your ear or on your neck that has been worn by tons of people? It would be like sleeping on a nasty hotel bed that you never know what was spilled on it. I don’t know, that’s just my opinion. What do you think?
