Chic Holiday Ideas....
The Sex and the City fashionistas introduced us to the uber-chic hand bag rental Bag, Borrow or Steal, now Ilus New York brings you New York City's newest rental phenomenon...Designer Dresses!
Ilus New York affords you the opportunity to borrow designer dresses, evening bags and genuine Swarovski crystal accessories to meet the needs of your holiday social calendar.
Here's How It Works:
- You can browse the designer dress selection online or in their Nolita boutique
- Reserve or order your selected dress
- Enjoy for 3 nights from the date of rental, when it’s time to return your dress, simply choose from the following options: Drop off at their Nolita boutique, or
schedule a pick up by phone or email.
This seems like an ideal solution for fashionistas on a limited budget during this tight economy. It allows you to look your best without the hefty price tag associated with most designer gowns. For about $100 (rental & cleaning fees) you can borrow the dress of your dreams and still have change to splurge on some accessories.
Here's a few from their collection that I'm totally smitten with....
- Crimson Pleated Silk Cocktail Dress by Badgley Mischka Platinum
- Gold Sequin Charmeuse Gown by Marc Bouwer Glamit!
Note: Most of my favorites were only available in a size 4 or 6, so it looks like Ilus New York may need to up the ante on some realistic sizes. I only found 2 dresses in my size.. What a pity!
No worries....I'll make it my mission this week to bring you another rental website with realistic sizes like 8, 10, 12 and up......
