Freebie Friday: Win A $250 Borrowing Spree At Avelle (The New Bag, Borrow Or Steal)

November 14, 2008 by Rebekah
shefinds | Style

That fabulous site where you can rent designer handbags (not to mention sunglasses, watches and jewelry) for a fraction of their retail price has a new name: Avelle. It’s Bag Borrow or Steal, but with a sleek new moniker, and they’re giving away a $250 credit to one lucky SheFinds reader.

For a chance to win, read the rules , then go to Avelle and pick out the accessories you’d want to borrow with $250. Come back to SheFinds and tell us all about your choices in the comments section – and you could soon be as handbag-savvy as Louise from the Sex and the City movie, who famously borrowed from the site.

We think we’d give our normal work tote a rest and opt for a month of this cleverly detailed Stella McCartney hobo for just $155 – it retails for a whopping $1,195. Or perhaps we’d rent a Fendi clutch for the week of New Years’ Eve – it’s only $43 (!) and it’s the perfect size to tuck under your arm while balancing a champagne flute (which we know because of the exceedingly helpful silhouette woman you can view “carrying” the bag).
