    If you can't own it, rent it.

    Ugh. Your 15-year high school reunion is this summer, and as much as you'd hate to admit it, you're pretty much dreading running into your high school sweetheart and his wife (a.k.a. the prissy cheerleader for whom he dumped you right before prom).

    You've heard through the grapevine (er, Facebook pictures) that neither of them has aged particularly well, but you still want to look STUNNING, just to rub it in. If only you could get your hands on that hot $1250 Herve Leger multi-color block dress you saw some starlet wearing in US Weekly.  But in this economy, who can possibly afford such outrageous prices? What if we told you that you could wear that exact dress for only $254, saving you $996?  It's true.

    Borrow A Dress Couture has opened its doors in Lakeview, providing women with designer threads from Badgely Mischka, Herve Leger, Christian Lacroix, Marchesa, Vera Wang and many other designers for RENT. That's right – rentals are not just for tuxedos anymore. Find sizes from 0 to 18 as well as maternity sizes. Prices range from $30 to $400 for a three-day rental.
    And no one needs to know that hot designer dress isn't yours for keeps. Especially not that frumpy, middle-aged cheerleader.
