Bag Borrow or Steal Treasures

Bag Borrow or Steal has been around for awhile and I've been purchasing from them since 2009.  I can't remember how I discovered them but I'm so glad I did!  Originally the site started as a place to rent designer handbags, jewelry and shoes.  (They were mentioned in the movie Sex in the City).  They cool thing about this company is that they also sell the designer treasures as a very nicely discounted price!  The company also sends emails every now and them with codes for extra discounts.  Woo Hoo more savings!  Did I mention standard is shipping is free for purchases?  The company guarantees the authenticity of the items which is something you don't get from eBay or private sellers.  In addition to renting and buying you can also sell your designer items to them.  I have never rented or sold anything so I can't attest to that process but I have purchased items from them and have had nothing but wonderful experiences with the product quality and price.

Recently I received a code in the mail for an extra 30% off.  I really need to learn how to restrain myself but I always find such good deals.  This time I found myself a cute pair of mary jane style Prada shoes and a gorgeous butterfly ring from Lois Hill. 

These are my Prada Sport Cap Toe Mary Jane Flats.  As you can see they are in fantastic condition and are soooo cute!  I love the patent leather top caps.  The approximate retail price on these is about $325.00 but that's not what I paid. :)  

My second item is a Lois Hill Large Butterfly Cocktail Ring in sterling silver.  I love butterflies and this ring is really well made and the quality is great.  The approximate retail price of this ring is $214.00.  But you guys know I didn't pay anywhere near that. 

So what did I pay?  Let's recap:

Prada shoes retail: $325.00. They were on sale for $155.00 but of course I had an 30% off code which made them $108.50!

Lois Hill Ring: retail $214.00. They were on sale for $105.00 but with my extra 30% off I paid $73.50!

Retail price of both treasures: $539.00.  I paid after discounts and tax: $195.20.  That's a 64% savings!  You would be hard pressed to find a deal like that mall shopping.  Of course these items are pre-owned but you would never know it. 

Verdict: If you have an affinity for designer accessories but don't want to pay designer prices check out BBOS.  You will love it!  Also take advantage of their extra % discount codes, they frequently send them via email.
