THE dream of having a Balenciaga mini on your arm may be enough to make you buy one.
While the thought is enticing, the investment might not be worth it – especially if you’re indecisive and get sick of trends.
If only there was a way to take affordable designer test drives.
Fortunately, TikToker and fashion influencer Lauren Wolfe found a way.
In Lauren’s recent video, she films herself going to a designer warehouse located in New York City.
She swaps out her Balenciaga, Chanel, and Fendi bags for one Louis Vuitton, another Fendi, and a Dior.
Lauren uses a rental service called Vivrelle.
Vivrelle allows you to pay a monthly fee, which starts at $39 and is based on the items you’re interested in.
For $39 a month, you can rent a jewelry piece from their “Premiere closet” which includes merchandise with a value of up to $1000.
For $99 a month, Vivrelle allows you to rent one item from their “Classique closet” with a value of up to $4000.
The item can be either jewelry or a bag.
For $199 a month, the “Couture closet” gives you the option to rent a jewelry piece, a bag, or a limited-edition item.
The last option is their “Couture+ closet.”
At $279 a month, you will be able to rent one piece from their “Classique closet” and one from their “Couture closet.”
All of these plans require you to apply first, and if you are accepted, you have to commit to at least three months.
If you love an item, you can keep it for as long as you’d like.
You do not have to swap out the items every month and everything is always available for purchase.
Even if you don’t live in New York City, you can still sign up for their service and they will ship you all items for free.
Everything comes with standard insurance.
