Ever heard the old saying ‘fake it ’til you make it’?. Well it is now a whole lot easier to look the part, with the current explosion of rental websites, where you can rent everything from handbags, designer outfits and jewelry, to home and office furniture.
Now you don’t need to resort to buying outfits you really can’t afford, wearing them with the tags still attached, and praying that you don’t spill anything on the dress, sweat in the dress, tear the dress, or (gasp) that someone sees the tag, all in the hope that tomorrow you can convince the sales assistant to give you a full refund.
Here are three of the best websites for rentals, at prices that won’t leave you feeling faint when you open the dreaded credit card statement…
Rent the Runway.
With a tag line that emphasizes high fashion at only 10% retail prices, it really is America’s best fashion secret!
Bag Borrow or Steal.
You probably remember the website from the Sex and the City movie (the good one, not the sequel), where JHud gets her very own Louis Vuitton handbag. This site has a massive array of designer bags, jewelry, sunglasses and watches, just take care not to drool on the keyboard as you browse.
Cort is the world’s largest furniture rental website. You can rent a single piece of furniture, or furnish a whole room. Whole living room sets, start from as little as $174 per month. It is the perfect, professional look that should be your number one port of call if you are thinking of selling your home, or simply haven’t decided on what style you prefer.
Now good style really is affordable!
