But let's face it: these things can get really expensive. But there IS a way you can rent items like this and save a lot of money.
Using Bag, Borrow or Steal you can rent all kinds of designer handbags for the week, month, or season. Rental prices start as low as $13 per week for non-members. You'll find Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Judith Leiber, and more.
Renting might come in especially handy if you need a fancy evening bag just for one night. A cute Kate Spade will cost you $17 for the week if you pay to become a member of the website.
And if you end up wanting to buy something you rent, you can do that. And you might be able to use your rental equity! Bag Borrow or Steal also rents high-end jewelry, watches, and sunglasses.
Don't see what you're looking for there? You can also try BlingYourself. Say you are interested in the necklace Gisele Bundchen wore for an InStyle Magazine shoot. Using BlingYourself you can have the same one for $30 for five days.
