My sister turned me on to this site: www.bagborroworsteal.com. Here you can rent a purse for as long as you want - for a price of course. If you have the money and are into fashion, it's a good idea. There are different levels of payment for different designers. Kind of like leasing a car vs. buying one.
If you're like me - I perfer to own - at least get a good deal. :o)
