If you want the Fendi bag without the price tag, or if you're worried the Dolce & Gabbana heels will cost you an arm and a leg, then try designer fashion rental on for size.
Operating online and from a new store in Armadale, Love Me & Leave Me is a one-stop-shop for fashionistas on a budget.
The process is simple: browse the store or website for the item you desire, pay for weekly or monthly rental, and you'll have the coolest labels in your hot little hands before you can say 'Alexander McQueen'.
Need to look amazing for a special event but don't want to fork out the big bucks on a dress you'll only wear once? Rent the (aptly named) Oscar de la Renta Asymetrical Dress for more than $1800 less than the retail price.
Love Me & Leave Me also has a range of jewellery, scarves, sunglasses and shoes by labels such as Mui Mui, Marc Jacobs, Chloe, Lanvin, Gucci, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, YSL, Givenchy, Dior and Valentino. And you needn't just rent - you can also buy brand new or 'gently loved' wares.
Fashion rental is a great concept, making designer accessories more accessible and taking the stress out of expensive dressing. It allows literal wardrobe changes every day of the week - but don't forget that if you break it, you buy it. Spill a glass of pinot noir on your borrowed Deepa Gurnani clutch and you'll be liable for the damage, so it's a good idea to either buy Love Me & Leave Me insurance or enjoy your rental very carefully.
