Bag, Borrow or Steal has got to be the BIGGEST rippoff
It's suppose to be the 'Netflix' of designer handbags which yes, in my collection I have a few.

BBS got a big boost in the movie "Sex and the City" until you go see the prices - the Louis Vuitton that Jennifer Hudsen had from BBS would run about $600/month to carry AND you don't really own the product.

I'll stick to finding used handbags off of Ebay - I love my Coach backpack purse!!

2. I don't understand the appeal of that site?
If you could afford $600 a month to 'rent' a handbag, couldn't you afford to buy it?

Makes no sense to me, whatsoever and I am a total handbag whore.

6. it's funny cause in Sex and the City (a movie I love)
Carrie asked how her assistant could afford a Louis Vuitton bag living on her salary and living in NYC (with 3 roommates) and that's where the plug came for Bag, Borrow or Steal.

Thing is, $600 a month for a damn bag? Geez I'd rather use that money to eliminate 1 or 2 roommates from my appartment. And btw, I have a Prada, couple of coaches, a few Dooneys and a Michael Kor - I got them off of Ebay or TJX - so I either have used or way further discounted.

So far, I know of no support group for this. :cry:

I have some Coach purses that I got at the outlet here. There's also a Burberry outlet and a Kate Spade!!!!
