Fabulous Finds: The Bag Borrow Or Steal Outlet
People have been talking a lot about this website called Bag Borrow or Steal lately. You know, the website that let’s you rent a luxurious bag by the week (or by the month). I was over at their website looking at all of the pretty things they had to offer. Problem is, I don’t know if I could simply “borrow” a bag. I mean, by the time you pay the rental fee, you could have had a third of the bag actually paid for (if you were to actually go out and but it at a store). Personally, if I’m investing that much into a bag, I’d rather just go buy the silly thing so that I can keep it forever. It might cost me a little more in the short run, but not in the long run.
Now that I have said this, you’re probably wondering why anyone would want to visit this website at all. But let’s not be too hasty in judging Bag Borrow or Steal. They still have a lot to offer for bargain hunters in their outlet section. Yes, that’s right. You can actually purchase “gently carried” designer handbags (and jewelry) for a fraction of their suggested retail prices. As a Let-Trade fan, I can tell you that there is nothing wrong with buying a previously owned handbag. Just because a bag has already been loved does not mean it doesn’t have any life left in it. Check out these bags pictured above that are currently available in Bag Borrow or Steal’s outlet section.
Kooba ‘Penelope’ Evening Handbag – $85
This gorgeous patent pewter clutch normally retails for $295.
Fendi Denim Spy Shoulder Handbag – $295
My only regret is that this bag isn’t all leather instead of denim fabric. It normally retails for $650.
Yves Saint Laurent Classic Tote – $775
This classic black tote comes complete with the Y logo on the front. Suggested retail was $1,295.00.
Lori Bonn ‘Luxe’ Black Onyx Earrings – $255
Yummy black onyx earrings! Retail for these babies is $575.
