Step 1

Decide what you want

Before you look for a website to provide you with the perfect purse, decide exactly what you want. The rental sites will have lots of options. It can be quite overwhelming and tempting at the same time. Decide on a color and a style before you begin to search. If you have a specific designer in mind, then stick to that as well. Don’t let all the choices confuse or distract you from your mission.

Step 2

Find the website

Go to Google or Bing or whatever search engine your use and put in the phrase «rent a handbag» or ‘rent a purse» either will do. If you want you can also include the word designer. You are going to get a lot of websites. Pick a handful of them and start the search. Not all of them will offer the same handbags.
