Recently at a blogger conference I had to privilege of coming across a company called Kookopa that gave me the exciting opportunity to wear three high end and very fashionable articles of clothing for 5 days. I was indulged with a beautiful Diane Von Furstenberg floral dress which retails for $595 and an eye-catching sparking top with black slacks by Vince that normally would cost $295.
The absolute cherry of the sundae was a gorgeous Jimmy Choo hobo bag that retails at a whopping $2,695! It had sort of a basket weave pattern and gold accents and it was hot. Just carrying a purse with a Jimmy Choo label made me feel special.
At first I was nervous carrying it, and kept in the empty seat beside me on the airplane, so I could keep an eye on it.
I felt very spoiled and knew I could get maybe a little too used to this..
The great news is this Kookopa is actually in the business of making the dream of high fashion clothes a reality even for those who could not otherwise afford it. Yes even a country girl like me can become a high fashion queen. I may have needed help from two other girls to get into the DVF dress but that’s another story… it was worth it! I received so many compliments that night! Kookopa offers a subscription service where every month you can pick 3 pieces to rent for the entire month. You can wear them as often as you want during that time. You can even swap out a piece for free if it doesn’t fit so you know you’ll always get enjoyment out of every piece. Dry-cleaning, insurance and shipping are all included so they take all the worry out of the process.
There are two different options when shopping with Kookopa: Event Based & Monthly subscription. The monthly subscription is less than a J. Crew Dress so it is way more affordable than spending thousands and thousands of dollars building up a high fashion wardrobe that quickly will go out of fashion and needs to be replaced. The event based option is perfect for those who need a knockout dress for a Military Ball, wedding, or cocktail party. You only pay for that item (no subscription costs), and you can choose to rent your outfit for 5 days, 2 weeks, or even a month! I see more Diane Von Furstenberg in my future!
When you are ready to return your items, simply put them in the prepaid shipping envelope! Kookopa takes care of the dry cleaning for you!
I honestly had no idea that this concept even existed but I’ll definitely be using Kookopa for events in the future. Getting to peruse through the choices every month to pick my top selections will be unlike a normal shopping trip to the mall. My feet won’t hurt, I won’t feel stressed about what I’m spending and I’ll be getting the pieces I normally would be staring at longingly through the store window knowing that I can’t afford. This country girl is now going to be rocking high fashion!
