Hired Handbags

Ever since I saw the ‘Sex in the City’ movie the idea of renting designer bags has been on my mind. I need a new bag and don’t know when I can afford another bag, or which one to buy? Because the idea of paying full price a designer bag makes my stomach hurt. When you’ve had a taste of sample sale shopping or outlet shopping in Italy, paying full price for designer goods is a no-no. These days buying a new bag is a big investment, when you know in a year it will be out of style! I also buy for the future, for me a designer piece is a collector’s item. I am thinking about my un-born daughter, who will have the pleasure or raiding her fashion Maven mother’s closet for that great vintage look in the years to come. I think the only bags that don’t go out of style are the monogram Louis Vuitton, any Chanel, or Hermes bag, other bags just come and go. We are lucky if we buy the right bag at the right time.

Now I found this site

It’s actually giving me an orgasm! Here you can rent designer hand bags by the month and pay as you go! How de-lish, now you can fake it, with a real bag! How ‘nouveau riche!’ You can choose from the categories of “Cheap and Chic”, Fashion Freak”, Glamour Queen and “New Arrivals.”

This is how it works:

Fashionhire allows you to rent designer handbags such as Gucci, Chloe, Louis Vuitton, Fendi and many more at affordable prices. At the same price as buying a Designer handbag, Fashion hire lets you rent many designer handbags throughout the year.

Fashionhire is a great, discreet way to trial new designer handbags & to keep up to date with the latest fashion trends at a fraction of the cost.

For the same price as purchasing one designer bag, why not borrow many different ones throughout the year? This way you will always have the right bag whatever the event. Handbag rental is big in the US and Fashion Hire is the first to introduce this service in the UK. Enjoy live the life you always wanted through your hired handbag!
