Would You Rent a Designer Dress?

Need a dress for a fancy ocassion, but don't want to spend a ton of money on something you might only wear once? Rent one!

There's a shop in NYC called Ilus that rents out designer dresses for $60 and up. But for those of you outside NYC, there's an online spot where you can rent a designer dress for cheap.

It's called Rent Me a Handbag, and yes, they have bags, but also dresses and shoes.

And you may have heard of Bag, Borrow, or Steal made famous by Sex and the City that leases out handbags, jewelry, and watches.

An anonymous CafeMom asked if there were any mommy fashionistas out there who would rent a designer dress.

Albi1623 says if its an expensive dress and looks amazing, to go for it!

prettylob1 says no. But she also wouldn't buy a top designer dress because most times you only wear it once. She says you can always find a dress with similar style that is in your budget. And most people wouldn't even know the difference anyway.

IGotLuckyInKy says she would totally do it. Designer dresses are meant to be worn once...so why not rent so it doesn't take up space in your closet.

What about you? Would you ever rent a designer dress or handbag?
