  1. 99 pounds for 3 clothing items that you only get to keep for a month????? WOW I don't spend that much money on clothes I keep forever. This was still very interesting and fun, I'm just shocked at the prices

  2. Don't think there's any chance on earth that I'd be paying £69 per month for 2 ITEMS, £99 per month for 3 ITEMS and a wopping £159 per month on 5 ITEMS.

  3. this would be nice for wedding seasons if you have one or more events coming up you can rent a few items instead of buy for one time use

  4. For a price comparison, Rent the Runway, which is a similar online retailer in the US, for £60 a month, you get 4 items. There is also Nuuly here, where you can rent more "everyday clothes" from Free people, UO, etc. with 6 items for the same price. Both of which, I think are better deals.

  5. I tried hiring a dress online from Hire street, it can be low priced, but the longer you want the dress the more it costs. Which is difficult when you want to make sure it fits in advance 🤔. You can return it but only for credit 😕 My dress did not fit, and so I still ended up buying one! I did try to be sustainable 😣

  6. I think that it’s a cool idea, but I find I would want to re-wear outfits that I put together. I also think the price is really steep for only a few pieces for a month. I want to be sustainable but not broke

  7. I'm curious here…. is the pricing that high because it is sustainable or because it is designer? 🤔 Not necessarily the same. That tigress dress has a retail price of like 350 pounds, so given the value of the designer clothing, the pricing is more understandable. But honestly though – paying for the name brand or the sustainability??

  8. YES to that second hand haul coming our way soon! <3 Your final verdict over that designer clothes rental service is really relateable. I always get stains on clothes, would be terrified if they are only rented and this expensive…

  9. Aren't there any non-designer clothing rental places in London? Here in the Netherlands there are a few. I have personally been to one, the Outfit Library in Arnhem. You can rent unlimited clothing there, provided that you only take three items at a time, for 25 euros a month 🙂

  10. Is it just me or did she kind of matches the sofa and pillow in the background when she wore the red blouse and the blue Jeans?! 😀

  11. I basically have a yearly budget of 700 chf (~550 £). This wouldn't even fit in my budget 😂
    This red top look fabulous on you though (and I wonder if they are real pearls at that price)

  12. Good video but if clothes are very expensive they better look the part and these didn't. Better to just buy items for the money that you could then keep forever and no return overhead.
    Back and forth will work better when we have drone delivery. Which will make ordering food problematically easy. Speaking of which, maybe there is a video in reviewing take out food.

  13. I love hearing your honest thoughts at the end. Seems like a service you could use for the events around your wedding if you want special things to wear for rehearsal dinner, bachelorette, etc.

  14. I definitely agree that this would work better for special occasions. I find that clothes I wear daily I get attached too, so to let them go after a month wouldn't be very enjoyable for me. Maybe per season you get a new lot or something might work? It's definitely interesting and a concept that will hopefully grow and change!

  15. I struggle with this on the basis that when I find something I love to wear I will wear it for years and to death! I think if I liked an item a lot I’d feel the need to purchase myself on for the steep designer price – not the most bank friendly way of shopping for me

  16. Thanks Hannah, after seeing you in the red top I now can't get Wuthering Heights out of my head

    On the renting of clothes note, the only time I've rented is for black tie events, and that's easily £100 for one evening, so for something a little special I can see this being an interesting thing to use. But I don't expect many, if any, would stay subscribed for more than one or two months, at that point you've probably got an idea of the sort of style you didn't realise you liked before trying the service and would be better served spending the money on one or two items in that style that you can keep.

  17. Being as short as you are and having a large chest do they have stuff that fits you? You remind me of my late wife. Years ago she, her Mum and I went to a restaurant and she went to the loo as we were seated. As she walked away, the waitress set a child's menu at her place and asked if we would wait for the 'child' to return. When she returned she asked who the kids menu was for as the waitress returned. She took one look at my 5 foot tall wife with the G-sized chest, turned red, immediately apologized and sort of sulked off to be replaced by another waitress. BTW I'm 6 foot 2 inches tall. Ever happen to you?

  18. Get the Honey add on for Chrome and it's gets the discount codes for you! I like the idea of this maybe for an event where you would only wear it once but otherwise I don't think I would. X

  19. I think they’d manage to make a fast fashion rental service terrible, not for us the consumer, but the people in the supply chain.

  20. Im the same wouldnt want to loan clothes case i ruined or fucked em lol, the red top and cow skirt was a great look for you, the dress fitted you well i think hannah

  21. Hannah: I'm not gonna show you the items I chose cause I want them to be a surprise.
    Also Hannah: shows the clothes she got on the thumbnail 😂

  22. I think this is an interesting concept and a cool / novel idea. The clothes looked great on you. I do wonder if sustainability is something inherently easier for those with money (like everything else in life)

  23. The prices for the garments themselves is not high if it's an independent artist making them. Materials are expensive, and quality is time consuming. To be able to make a (even tiny) profit you have to charge a lot for it.

    Unless my conversion rates are off, I'm not British and I did the math in my head

  24. Blimey, that’s pricey. I haven’t even spent that much on clothes this year! One t-shirt from All Saints (sale), two M&S bras and some M&S pants. For this much I’d want to buy something that I can wear and enjoy forever.

  25. I guess it's a good way to find items you wouldn't usually choose ? Now you can find a second hand cow print skirt from eBay or depop!

  26. I love the idea but too much money. If you sew your own clothes that's also being less of a consumer because you make to fit exactly and because there's effort, you are less likely to make things you won't wear.

  27. £99 a month and you can't keep the clothing? No thanks. I will just buy clothes from a charity shop. Also, you could buy less clothes even if they are not the most sustainable pieces and/or re-wear what you already own until they fall apart.

  28. I am skeptical of this as a sustainability option? What do they do with the items after a few months, and are they sustainably made? I feel like this business model is a thinly veiled wear-and-toss sort of system.
    Love hannah, not sure on this idea though

  29. For the last 4 months or so I was doing Rent the Runway, which is a subscription service here in the States. They have an option for unlimited monthly rentals where you can keep 4 at a time but once you return one, you can get another. It's a bit pricey but i found it worth it, especially as I had gone through some weight fluctuation and I didn't want to buy a whole new wardrobe just to feel comfortable and confident and then have to do it all over again. The nice thing was that they have a shop in NYC so I could go before or after work to pick up items I ordered from the website or just try on things they have on-site. They do mailing services too but honestly my body type is so funny that for someone like me (curvy, plus size), I wouldn't recommend unless you are by one of the shops so you can try it on before committing. All that being said, I had to cancel this month for financial reasons and I already miss it! I don't care much about labels but I did notice that many of the items were better quality than I could afford otherwise.

  30. I feel like when I'd rent clothing I would either fall in love so much I wouldn't want to give the item back or not like it at all and never wear it…
    But conscious shopping and a small wardrobe does work well for me so maybe renting just isn't my thing (for now at least).

  31. I will happily pay 90 € for a pair of well fitting jeans that will last several years but I would not be willing to pay the same amount per month for renting 3 pieces. Just started sewing my own tops again after not finding something I like.

  32. I honestly don't care about labels, so renting wouldn't be good for me. Add into the mix, I'm odd shaped and plus size, it would be such a headache!

  33. I really liked the videos by tiffany Ferguson about her nuuly subscription! It‘s more items per month for about the same price, but you actually don’t have to worry about breaking anything because it‘s calculated in the price!

  34. I get that it's a lot of money, but please understand that h&m and Topshop etc. Put way too low prices on their clothes because somewhere in the making of the clothing someone doesn't get paid. It's fast fashion. Please consider buying second hand if spending more money on clothes is not your thing, but stop holding fast fashion prices as a standard for clothing pricing.

  35. Does anyone know of a sustainable clothes-renting service in Australia? I’ve just done a quick google and can only really find rental sites for designer occasion dresses.

  36. You dont really have good thrifting in the UK huh? Here we have big thrift store that sell donated clothes for really really cheap! Like a few dollars

  37. If you like big flowy sleeves you should get a magicians robe. It would work very well with your Emma Watson-accent 🙂

  38. This Christmas I ordered myself a clothing box where they source the clothing from thrift stores and I am so excited to see what they picked for me!! Totally on board with the second-hand shopping feeling!

  39. I would never do this for rented clothes. you have to return them after a month? seems so dumb, I'd only rent a dress for like a gala or something, I don't need a rented skirt for 1 month for £99 hahaha

  40. I spend on average maybe $400 on clothes in a full year (shoes included), so I could not imagine paying $99 for 3 items that I would only keep for a month. That is a big no from me! Lol. I don't care about labels or fashion. I just want to look decent and be comfortable when I leave the house. 🙂

  41. The tiger dress looks like something the First Aid Kit singers would wear! Would like to see what they send each month for you! I am also not a fashion person despite loving clothes, so watching you struggle to find proper words to describe them is very relatable

  42. I would maybe rent a special occasion outfit but not if the only option is a regular subscription. I definitely wouldn’t use this service for day to day clothes because of the price! Also can you swap if something doesn’t fit?

  43. Something similar to Onloan is an app called By Rotation. Also an easy way to get second hand clothes is from Vinted and Depop. I've shopped on Vinted quite a bit & it is great!

  44. Would you consider doing a video where you speak about the brands available through the rental service? Understandably, not all expensive fashion is sustainable or more ethical, but I think people sometimes forget that by paying more for garments they are supporting a living wage and a safe working environment for people. That’s what really made me rethink buying cheap clothes.

  45. This is not eco at all.
    If anyone is thinking of trying this to be more eco, buying online is never that. Think of all of the transport and packaging behind everything; that's a lot of CO2!! Always try to buy from stores around you if you can and please don't buy into the "monthly box" bad going on- it's a big reason behind rising emissions right now. This is especially bad because of the constant back and forth..

  46. i feel like this in a high street version would be worse because to source the clothes it would utilise fast fashion. obviously, the clothes are being reworn but considering quality they’d have to be rebought/replaced. this kind of service only works with designer/second hand pieces in my opinion because sourcing them originally can be done more sustainably (even though many high end brands unfortunately still use sweatshops etc).

  47. pointless, if you're wasting incredible amounts of resources to eat meat, the tiny amount you save on clothes is completely pointless

  48. This was Super Interesting. My wedding dress cost me £120 made to measure >_> And I still feel that was a lot for a dress I'll not wear again… 😛 So definitely feel the same re: costs and labels.
