ONLINE—Wear Today Gone Tomorrow (har) is a new dress-rental site launched by a former Lucky editor. The premise sounds a lot like Bag Borrow or Steal: For 90% off retail, they'll rent you a nearly-new designer item for a week. Pay 70% off retail, and you get it for a month. They also claim to have a fancy new measuring system that guarantees all the rentals will fit, and they'll give you your money back if the system fails. [Racked Inbox]
