 - Handbags for rent

Your arm candy can make an outfit and set a lasting impression, but keeping up-to-date with the latest luxury must-have bags is a very expensive business.

While handbag hiring has been established in the USA for some time now, it is now taking off in the UK.

Handbaghirehq.co.uk costs £7.50 a month to join and you can rent bags for a week, fortnight or a month at a time.

Choose from a good selection featuring Dior, Gucci, Fendi, Burberry, and Louis Vuitton. A Black Patent Yves Saint Laurent Tribute tote costs £35 a week or £90 per month, while a Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 costs £15 per week or £40 per month.

There is also the option to purchase should you fall in love! Another service is fashionhire.co.uk which has a wide selection of handbags: borrow a Classic Chanel 2.55 for £90 per month, or Marc Jacobs' Stam Bag in shimmering pink gold for £70 per month. There is a membership system with a minimum three month sign up.
