I am so pleased to introduce you to our newest holiday sponsor, Fanciu.com. Fanciu is a brand new website where you can rent (or buy) fancy kids’ clothing for every occasion from holiday parties to weddings. It’s the brainchild of a Crystal Herrmann, a mom of twin girls who realized, like most of us moms do, that she was spending far too much money on her girls’ dressy clothing in comparison to how many times they actually wore them. When she realized that her girls’ closets even contained “capelettes” that never saw the light of the day after the holidays (“Ivory silk flapper dresses and pre-school macaroni art just don’t mix”), she had a lightning bulb idea. Why not create an online store where busy (and money-saving) parents can rent that perfect outfit which would otherwise be an expensive purchase/one-hit-wonder? This way you can dress your child in that fantasy designer dress (brands include Baby CZ, Dior Girl, and Cavalli Girl) without breaking the bank–or stuffing the closet. I love this idea.
Here’s an example of what you can rent:
Lotusgrace Red Silk Party Dress (sizes 2T-12; rental price for 4 days is $35; retail price would be $230). A gorgeous dress for upcoming holiday parties. By the way, you can also purchase rental insurance for just about $10 to protect against any accidental stains. Smart–they thought of everything.
And, if you become a registered Fanciu member, you are given access to buy previously rented items that are now listed at a fraction of their original retail price. You’ll also be the first to know when new rental items arrive, and when rental items have been retired and put up for sale. Take a look at what you could buy right now:
Dior Boy’s Black Tuxedo Suit (sizes 2T-12; on sale for $380; retail price would be $750). Got a little boy in a wedding party? This would take the cake.
Visit Fanciu.com and enjoy a 20% discount for a limited time only with code “giving20″. Now’s the perfect time to rent–or buy–for upcoming holiday parties!
