1. Why borrow instead of buying? Back to top ^
There are heaps of reasons why you should borrow rather than buy. For example, you could borrow many items from LM&LM for the same price of buying one single item. This gives you the flexibility to follow the latest fashion trends without accumulating a closet full of outdated accessories that cost a fortune!
Also, borrowing lets you 'try before you buy'. If you are not quite sure whether you want to make that pricey purchase, borrow the item from LM&LM first to give it a test run. If you then want to buy it, contact us and we'll arrange a great price for - it's all included in your LM&LM membership.
2. How much does it cost to be a member? Back to top ^
Membership is free! You only pay for what you buy or borrow. Once you are a member, you will have access to a cyber wardrobe full of designer fashion to borrow at either a weekly or monthly rate. If borrowing is not your thing, you can visit our e-boutique as a non-member and make outright purchases.

Once your wish listed item returns to stock you will be automatically notified via email along with all other members who have wish listed that item - then it is up to you to jump on our website ASAP and borrow the item before anyone else does.
Of course! If you have your eye on something currently in season that LM&LM has not yet stocked, let us know. Our buying team will endeavour to fulfil your fashion desires.
