Let’s All Celebrate National Break Up Day

May 31st, 2006 // 4 Comments

Not sure you can shell out another $2150 to buy the latest Chloé handbag this week? Bag, Borrow or Steal one instead. It’s virtually a Netflix for handbags, complete with low membership fees and designer goods that you can actually afford. And the best part is that you can trade your purse in — no questions asked – the instant it goes out of style.

June 2nd is National Break Up Day and Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn are headlining the celebration with the release of their comedy, “The Break-Up”. As an added perk, break-up friendly e-cards are available on the site just in case the movie inspires you to tell someone that they “looked better on MySpace” after all.

Want to dress like Meredith Grey? A fun new division of ABC.com finally makes it possible. You can even filter through the store and shop by character, if you’d like. But if you’re in the market for scrubs, you’ll have to look elsewhere – this site’s devoted entirely to their non Seattle Grace attire.

    DON’T USE BAG BORROW OR STEAL!!!!! I had my automated payments set up, like you have to, and they took out hundreds more than they should have. Sometimes 5 and 10 dollars at a time, but I guess when they saw I wasn’t catching that, they decided to move up to 50 and 100. They wouldn’t give it back until they recieved the bags I had, so I told them my lawyer would speak with theirs (I work for a well known firm), but unless that happened I wasn’t sending them anything until I got my money back. They dropped it so I kept the bags and I haven’t seen a penny or heard a word from them since.

    If you read the fine print at Bag Borrow or Steal, it’s apparent they nickel & dime you. I got REALLY excited at first….they make it sound like you can borrow couture bags for $9.95/month. Wrong! If you borrow a “Couture 3″ bag for a month, that’s $275 + $10 shipping + $30 insurance (which only covers damage not theft or loss) + the $10 per month membership (3 months required). So for $325, I can borrow a bag for a month. God forbid I damage/break it or lose it, which the website says in their terms of service they will charge you a “reasonable repair or replacement fee”. God only knows how much that is.

    Bottomline….I might as well save $325 in a cookie jar every month & save up for my own bags that I don’t have to send back every month/week. Renting is simply throwing money in the garbage.

    Now….if they had a “Rent-to-Own” program, THAT would be a different story. Couture Layaway! I’d buy into that!
