I do a lot of renting - I find it's more economical to my present lifestyle. I rent an apartment in Manhattan, and have for the last 9 years. What's wrong with renting a bag or an outfit - even if your rotation changes daily?
My favorite part of the day, and maybe of my present life, is getting dressed. With beauty and fashion, you can transform yourself and become any character you feel like embodying - visually at least. There is so much inspiration in this city - without the people that makeup this beautiful landscape of creative genius we live in, how would we think?
