Some of my close friends refer to my closet as the Lending Library. In they go to pull a few articles of clothing and days later return them, dry cleaned and good as new. Turns out I've just discovered my own library. It's called Armarium, and this New York-based mobile app allows you to borrow pieces from an expertly curated lineup of couture, ready-to-wear, and accessories, along with the option of hiring a professional stylist to assist with day-of dressing needs. Last week, I put Armarium to use (minus the stylist!) and borrowed the new and already sold-out-everywhere Peter Pilotto dress, above. The dress retails for $1660, but I rented it for 4 days for $250. Armarium focuses on major statement dresses, and inventory is constantly updated, so there's always something new to wear!
