Hello everyone!

If you read my last post you would know that I am currently overseas on a part business part pleasure holiday with my family. But before too much time passes I am just going to play a little catch up on the blog and make sure we are fully up to date before I start spamming you with my new surrounds and new purchases!

Ok, so have you heard about handbag rental? Basically this service allows you to have the latest handbag on your arm without having to shell out the big bucks. Although I was vaguely familiar with this concept, it wasn’t until I saw a few fashionable (and often high profiled) ladies posting pics on Instagram and tagging their bags back to different hire companies that I began to take notice. I think there is a misconception that renting a bag means you ‘cant afford’ to buy one but really what I think this service is about is allowing you to stay on top of trends and giving you access to all the hottest handbags without having to purchase multiple bags that you might not have a lot of use for day to day.

As a mum, I don’t have a lot of occasions to wear small clutch bags and even though a Chanel Boy bag and a Chloe Drew might be on my wish list, if I am going to invest in a handbag, especially a designer one, it makes more sense to put my dollars into a big bag right now.

So when my cousins wedding popped up on the calendar a few weeks ago, I decided to give it ago. I went with a company called Style On Loan who I found on Instagram. They have an amazing range of bags, a very fast response time and a flat rate for all bags that is one of the most competitive that I’ve seen. It couldn’t be simpler to choose your bag, reserve the date and they select your hire period. The wedding was on Saturday so I chose a 4 day hire which meant the bag was delivered to my door on Thursday and then I just had to pop it in the reply paid envelope included and send it back on Monday.

As you can see in the pictures above I chose the baby pink YSL mono bag and absolutely loved it. If you have a special occasion coming up or you’d like to road test a bag you’ve been lusting over, I highly recommend you give Style on Loan a try. Thanks again for the great service J xx
