Couture Accessories for any bride

0364texture

I have developed kind of a thing for designer shoes, especially heels. For all stylish bridal accessories, really. I just love a good shoe or dress or jewelry shot. These items are the first thing I look for when I enter the bridal room and the first thing I usually photograph, when nothing is really happening yet and I have the time to walk them around a bit and look for new and creative ways to shoot them.

And, while getting married can be a great excuse to buy some amazing accessories, not everyone can afford to devote thousands to their purchase. But now, thanks to a website called Bag Borrow or Steal, even brides on a budget can afford couture!

The website offers you the opportunity to "borrow" (aka lease) 100% authentic designer bags, purses, and other accessories on a weekly or monthly basis, for a fraction of what the items cost to own. They have things from famous designers like Chanel, Gucci, and Hermes, and even have a whole bridal section devoted to wedding-specific items.

Here is just a taste of what I found in my first few minutes on the site:

Vera Wang Double Diamond Earrings $128.00/week or $375.00/month

Rosiblu Pave cuff bracelt (13.97 carats!) $265.00/week or $795.00/month

Leiber 'Slender Curve" evening handbag $51.00/week or $150.00/month

Don't miss the vintage collection. Hermes midnight blue vintage Birkin bag; $816.00/week or $2,400.00/month

I happen to have picked some of the more costly items on there, but there are plenty of beautiful bags and jewelry pieces to be had for $50-$150 per week. So go there now, and borrow something fabulous for me to photograph on your wedding day! :)
