Ever wanted a designer handbag? (you: DUH) Ever wanted a designer purse but do not want to pay hundreds of dollars? (you: OBVIOUSLY!)
I have the solution! Bag Borrow or Steal lets you borrow, yes, BORROW, designer purses for anywhere from $10/week to $1600/week. There are a couple other websites out there like this, but none with as great of a selection as BBS.
So how does it work? Well, first you sign up to be a member. Then you spend a few minutes/hours browsing online for the guaranteed authentic handbag you want and can afford. Many of them have waitlists, but don’t worry – if you have a membership, it won’t be long until you get the purse you want. Or you can browse by purses that are currently available so that it’s shipped immediately. After you’ve chosen the purse you’d like to borrow, you select your payment plan. You can borrow for a week, a month, or 3 months at a time. The longer you borrow, the cheaper the price. Your week or month begins when your item is delivered. When BBS ships you your purse, it will be clean and in good condition. And if it isn’t, you can send it back for a refund!
If you decide you want to keep your item, that may or may not be possible. BBS has a separate website called BBS Private Sale which sells designer bags for relatively cheap. Your item may be available on BBS Private Sale, but if it isn’t, you’ll just have to keep renting! It also may be possible to call customer service and try to talk them into selling you that item. If there’s not a waiting list, maybe they’ll consider it!
Now, let’s be realistic in that you’re not going to be able to borrow a Chanel or Louis Vuitton for $10/week. The $10/week items are usually Coach, Michael by Michael Kors, Furla, Tory Burch, Juicy Couture, and Kate Spade. However, if you want to treat yourself a little, you could borrow a Chanel, Valentino, Chloe or Gucci for around $70/week. Hermes bags as well as the vintage couture pieces are the ones that are going to cost hundreds – if not thousands – per week.
What’s even better is that BBS recently changed their policy so that 1. Membership is totally free 2. Shipping, both borrowing and returning, is free. 3. Insurance is included.
BBS also lets you borrow designer jewelry, sunglasses and other accessories for your special occasions.
How do I know all of this? Well, I’m a member of course! I received my first handbag yesterday. It’s a little springy, but I absolutely adore it. And at $12/week or $35/month, it’s something I can afford 🙂 So cute, right?!
