Like Netflix, but Better!

Wouldn't you love to own this bag? It's a Burberry Prorsum patent satchel that retails for well over $1000. But if you join the ingenious new Web site, Bag, Borrow, or Steal, you can have that little beauty hanging from your arm for a rental fee of $80 a week. Ok, so that's not cheap, but it beats shelling out more than ten times that for a bag that you won't use very often. In fact, if you're like me, you almost won't want to let your precious investment out of the house, lest it get dirty or damaged. But $80 for a gorgeous bag that would be just perfect with that new Fall ensemble you are wearing to that upcoming museum function....

I was lucky to catch the Handbag Day episode of the Martha Stewart Show recently, featuring Bag, Borrow, and Steal. (Not as lucky as the audience members, however, who each got $200 borrowing credit on the site and a CK clutch, courtesy of Calvin Klein.) Clips from show are viewable here.

Jewelry Too?
But wait, there's more! Not only can you borrow fantabulous handbags from Bag, Borrow or Steal, you can also borrow chic designer jewelry, like this crystal set from Chanel. Gucci, Kenneth Jay Lane, Stephen Dweck, and Charriol pieces are also available.

If only I could get them to carry MY wares. Hmmmm...(plot, plot).
