How Style Stars Afford Luxury on a Budget (and you can too!)


Shhhh… it’s a secret, but today’s most stylish people are NOT spending hundreds and thousands of dollars on clothes and accessories; they’re spending a monthly stipend and RENTING them.

Renting Everyday Style from Rent The Runway

To get started, my number one way that I always look fab on a budget is… Rent The Runway! I am a Rent The Runway Unlimited member, meaning I can rent and return as much clothes as I want in a month. It’s only $159 a month, but on the average month I am renting over $2,000 worth of clothes, bags, and jewelry! With top designer brands like DVF, Vince, The Kooples, Rebecca Minkoff, Furla, Derek Lam, and so so many more, fahsionistas can look fab so easily. I’ll rent pieces for blog events, blog shoots, vacations, parties, weddings, and more. Considering the average rental price for a single piece is $125, $159 a month for unlimited is such a good deal, especially if you’re the kind of person who wants to always be trendy but not shop fast fashion or have an overflowing closet.

Looking Luxe on a budget with Bag Borrow Steal

Love luxury bags but don’t want to shell out hundreds, or even thousands of dollars? Bag Borrow Steal is a REAL thing with REAL designer bags.
