There's something about a designer handbag that sets my heart racing. I can't call it shallow, because we all have our weaknesses. I've appreciated high-end designers since I was in my teens, but never thought I'd get the chance to carry around a flawless piece of leather worth more than some cars until something like middle-age—until bag rentals came into my life. Bag Borrow or Steal (yep, the same one from the Sex and the City movie) is a fascinatingly addicting website where you can rent out gorgeous designer bags month to month and add a little pizzazz to your normal weekday wear. I've been toting my dream bag, this little Celine luggage tote, around for a few weeks and it honestly takes any old outfit to the next level. I can't wait to choose my next bag! This is one way to style it for a day out: care to see what I keep inside? Keep an eye on the Bag Borrow Steal blog for a "what's in my bag" post...
