So…I assume the stuff is used by other people then? That would weird me out.

@Westwood:  +1…ewwww…

Yeah, the idea sounds neat in pricinple, but it’s the details that kind of wig me out.  Plus, like @Muppetfan:  said, what’s the point, if you don’t own them for the cost of the subscription? 

Also, I am just not trendy enough to care what label I’m wearing.  Don’t get me wrong, I like clothes, and I actually make most of mine, but when I’m shopping and sewing, I look more at form and function than at brand names.

I am a big fan of Rent the Runway for special-occasion dresses that, even if I owned them, I would only wear once or maybe twice (plus pay for dry cleaning each time!).  But for regular, everyday clothes and accessories?  I’d rather shop for stuff I love and will have for a long time.  If variety/novelty was that important to me, I’d shop at Forever21 more, or organize swaps with friends.

@SweetMelissa429:  Well, heck, if it saves you money in the long run, lets you try lots of new things, and is hubby approved, you should try it out!  Sounds like you’re their target market.  🙂  If you do it, make sure to come back and tell us about it!

It sounds like it could work for some people.  Personally, I probably spend less than that on clothes on an average month and what I do buy I keep for YEARS (I have jeans and shirts from middle school and I’m two years out of college).  It would be a waste to me to not own the stuff I’m spending money on, unless it’s a formal occasion.  

I could see this being cool for REALLY unique statement type pieces (the kind of thing where people will recognize it if you wear it twice) but since it sounds like you can’t really pick out stuff, I don’t know if it would work out that way.  

I have no issue with preworn clothes but I’d rather just shop at a thrift store, save money, and keep them (and they’ve probably been worn by 1-2 people, not 50).  And what if half the stuff was dryclean only or something (since it’s probably nice quality clothes at that price tag)- you’d have to pay to dryclean it before wearing- at least I, being a germaphobe, would- and then pay again after wearing, and thus delay the return shipment and get fewer shipments per month.  

If you try it, you should definitely update us!

I guess what I would wonder is what kind of clothing it is, which depends on the tote. I like quality clothes, and I am willing to bet that these are not up to my usual standard.

@SweetMelissa429:  Okay, not having to clean them makes it sound a lot better.  Post what you get if you decide to try it out!
