Twenty thousand people are anxiously waiting to access this fashion platform.

Villageluxe, luxury fashion's version of Airbnb, allows invite-only Luxers to borrow and lend pieces in their closet to fellow New Yorkers. It is redefining how people shop, and we couldn't be more on board.

Cocktail night with the girls? Borrow an Alexander McQueen dress from the chic fashion editor down the street. Want to feel like Carrie Bradshaw and live out your Sex and the City fantasy? Borrow a pair of Manolo Blahnik heels and a vintage Chanel bag. And yes, you can claim a Hermes Birkin bag as your own for only $250 per week. With over $10 million in inventory listed, we're pretty sure you can find some pieces that strike your fancy. 

"Godmother of luxury e-commerce" Carmen Busquet (early investor in Net-a-Porter, Moda Operandi, Business of Fashion, and Farfetch) recently put $2 million toward the website and app, giving it the ultimate stamp of approval for future greatness. 

We've chosen the best handbags New York closets have to offer at the moment. AND, Guest of a Guest has gotten an exclusive invite code for you to skip the waitlist. Because that's how we do things around here. Enter summer18 on for insider access. Thank us later.
