This week the fashion community was captivated by the annual Met Gala, which introduces a new exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and attracts celebrities and fashion elite. Though I’ve spent hours looking at photos, analyzing and gawking, I’m not going to talk about it today.

On to today’s business. Amidst the many fashion websites, blogs, deals and shops, it can be difficult to figure out fashion’s finest. But my countless hours of browsing and researching have led to some great discoveries, one that I’m excited to share with you loyal 303ers.
Lately I’ve been a little excessive with my accessories purchases. A bling-y necklace, a statement ring or a friendship bracelet can so easily enhance a routine outfit that it has been my way of tweaking my current wardrobe. But, now it’s just getting ridiculous, adding up to as much as purchasing new clothes.
Luckily I recently stumbled upon a life-changing business. For the accessory obsessed like me, there’s a new website that lets you to rent the best accessories of the season. Think Kenneth Jay Lane deco cuff, Noir pyramid stack rings and Janis Savitt crystal earrings. Called Jetworthy, the site allows you to rent one of their fab pieces and return it when you’re over it and ready for your next piece. Jewelry genius!
Here’s how it works:
1) Pick your plan. You can choose from $32, $42 or $52 a month (the more you pay, the more selection you have).
3) Receive your jewels and rock them.
4) Return your jewels and get your next item!
The site touts, “Think of us as your insider pass to a killer accessories closet – like borrowing from your uber stylish best friend.”
Bag Borrow or Steal has a similar model, but focuses on handbags and you pay per item without a monthly membership fee (renting a Chanel will run you about $170 a week).
Go ahead – borrow your way to style greatness.
