RocksBox 6 RocksBox 5 RocksBox 4 RocksBox 3 RocksBox 2 RocksBox 1“Sex and the City” famously sold us on the idea that, “It’s a rental. Like Netflix for purses.”And we were stunned. You can rent fashion?!When you have an upcoming event and nothing to wear, do you buy or rent your next look?These two options give you endless possibilities for the ultimate look with optimum levels of fancy. Because we all know where to shop, let’s take a look at different ways to rent fashion.Where to Rent your own Cinderella DressRent the Runway allows you to rent the red carpet looks for your own star studded events. After dancing the night away like Cinderella, don’t forget to return them in a timely fashion.It’s fun to dress up like your favorite celebrities, without having to dish out all of your cash for a seemingly one-time-only purchase. To begin your renting journey, you can either book an appointment with a stylist in person, chat online, or take a chance and guess what will work for you the best.When you have options from hundreds of designers on Rent the Runway, why not give it a try and see what you can find?Where to Find your Designer Handbag CandyBag Borrow or Steal allows fashion queens to borrow, collect and share luxury handbags and accessories. With your handbag rental arriving in almost mint condition, you can borrow as long as you want, since there are automatic rental renewals for the habitually fashionable souls out there.I wish you could rent to own the handbags, but their fabulous steal section is quite marvelous with shoes, handbags and more. You can find things like a pair of pre-loved, but in excellent condition, designer shoes from Ferragamo to steal at $125. Seriously, there is no need to worry.
