Letter from our CEO

Dear Style Lenders,

First, I want to express my deep gratitude to all of you that have believed and supported us from the start and continue to do so every day. Through your comments on social media, likes, introductions, rentals, and shares with friends, you have all made a contribution to help grow Style Lend into what it is today. I also want to thank our lenders, who have shared their amazing items with our community of renters, who love to experience wearing unique, classic, trendy, and coveted pieces from your closets. Style Lend would truly not exist without you.

Our amazing community allows Style Lend to not just be another e-commerce site that consists of only transactions. Style Lend is meant to feel like your ‘best friend’s closet,’ by allowing renters to obtain new outfits from within their community, as well as receive personal styling advice that they would from a friend. We have stylists on hand to give you advice on how to style items, recommend what is appropriate for specific events, and sometimes even answer personal questions you may have (we’ve heard it all). So definitely take advantage of Dale, our ‘Style Psychologist’ who can help you make the most out of your rental so you can create amazing memories with it.

The Style Lend experience, not only allows renters to obtain items that they may otherwise not have access to (or wanted to spend the money on), but contributes and promotes an overall sustainable lifestyle. Sustainability is something we are proud to be a part of and encourage at Style Lend. It’s the future of fashion (does our planet even have a choice?). Celebrities such as Emma Watson, Leonardo Dicaprio, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Anne Hathaway are all advocates for. Check out the article Anne Hathaway shared to promote sustainability HERE.

So what’s to come next for Style Lend? We’re going to reflect our lifestyle and what we truly believe in, in everything we do. You will hear from the Style Lend team and other Style Lenders on how they live the Style Lend life, from fashion to travel to events.  We will share all of it through Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter (stay tuned).

The foundation of the brand, which we are continuing to build upon and express, will also be reflected in our updated look and feel of our website/mobile experience, all of which is a result of your feedback over the last six months.  

Can’t wait to share that with you in July.

As always please email, call, message me with any feedback, questions, concerns.

Stylishly Yours,
Lona & the team.

Join the movement!

#thebreakupletter

Breakups – they can be bittersweet, sad, and just overall bad. However, breakups can also be for the better! That’s why we are creating a movement to breakup with our old shopping habits and make them a thing of the past! Join our movement, #thebreakupletter.

Our mission is to encourage all women to break up with anything and everything that prevents them from banding together and supporting one another to dress, look, and feel better! We are breaking up with fast fashion, buyers remorse, and most of all, our wallets.

By doing so, let’s start to lend and rent clothes from each other instead! I think we can all agree that everyone deserves access to high quality clothing. We shouldn’t have to spend our hard earned paychecks on clothing that we will only wear a few times. Instead, we should be able to do and focus on the things that are important to us. We’re starting the movement in San Francisco because it is full of beautiful, fashionable, forward-thinking trendy women. Together, we can empower one another, one compliment at a time.

Let’s all help each other out and lend our clothes to one another.

Let’s band together to put an end to our old shopping habits.

Let’s break up with the things that prevent us from looking our absolute best.

Let’s create this movement to help and empower all women to dress and feel confident.
