Yes, you read that right. I am here to tell you how to get your designer bags for a mere fraction of the price. Consider yourself Jennifer Hudson in Sex and the City – why buy when you can rent? Jennifer did say after all that it’s like Netflix for purses, instead of movies it’s handbags!
In a world where McDonalds can be delivered, you best believe anything is possible and I am telling you that you can get a fabulous designer bag for a high street price. I mean, if you have thousands of pounds to spend and own the bags, by all means you go for it. For those of you like me, who only dream of owning such things you too can rent yours. Whether you drool over Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana or my personal favourite, Gucci there is something for everyone and all you have to do is click a button. Interested? I thought so…
How Do I Rent A Bag?
One word – iBagzy. As I said it is a rental service, but for those of you local to me (Belfast, Northern Ireland) you will be pleased to hear that this is based in Belfast but does however ship to your location for a further cost. Before you can rent anything off the website you must fill out a registration form, only requiring a few pieces of information. Have a driving license or passport ready and a bank statement or utility bill. Once you have registered and are verified then you are free to shop and rent!
What Can I Rent?
The main products on the website are bags, from clutch bags to totes but you can also rent belts and the most stunning head pieces designed and created by fellow blogger Sian Cousins, all available on the website. Prices vary depending on what you are interested in renting and for how long, I have left some examples below.
Alexander McQueen De Manta Python Effect Clutch, £30 per week
Gucci Supreme Bees Tote & Wallet, £75 per week
Yves Saint Laurent Monogram Glitter Kate Clutch, £45 per week
Gucci Black Belt, £25 per week
So as you can see, there is plenty to keep you entertained on the website! I had my bag for a week and I have to admit, it was pretty hard to hand it back but I can’t wait to get another!
As you can imagine, this is a popular service so if you are interested in renting something I would suggest getting added to the waiting list as soon as you know you want it so that you definitely have it for the date.
