Hate to pack? In a hurry? Don’t own a winter coat? Here’s a service for you:
What it does: Delivers to your New York hotel a suitcase filled with clothes, accessories and toiletries that are professionally cleaned and packed. You can rent the items for two to five days. Prices start at $39.99. Deliveries are coming soon for Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
What’s hot: Companies that ship your luggage to your destination are not new. However, for those of us who are packing challenged, don’t want to lug heavy coats and are gutsy enough to wear clothes we’ve never tried on, the service is a big time- and money-saver. The selections are modern, stylishly comfortable and seasonal. Choose from pre-determined selections; there’s no wasting time with stylists or sifting through online wardrobes. I loved that a hip backpack was included for women and a messenger bag for men. And you get to keep the toiletries.
What’s not: If you’re used to wearing bright colors, keep shopping or bring your own items to brighten up the essentials. Also, sizes are not as standard as the clothing; if you aren’t a typical small, medium or large, this service isn’t for you.
