Rent-Compromising Rationalization

While every Hollywood girl might be pushing their collection of Hervé Léger bandage dresses to the back of their closets, this lust-worthy trend lives on - at least in my heart - today.

Something about these super luxe Ace bandages is so appealing to the female eye.
Perhaps it's because we also are led to the assumption that this is like super sexy Spanx, a quick fix to every booty and belly blemish possible.

For girls like me, the Spring 09' collection by Max Azria didn't disappoint. From glittering ball gowns to peep-show minis and bondage-ready bikinis, all bandage fans can rest assured that Hervé will be in demand.

However, the price tag might smart just a bit, but let me breakdown the most practical and impractical Hervé purchases, that may lead you to believe that you might need a piece of spandex goodness in your wardrobe sooner rather than later.

Sorry-I-Can't-Pay-Rent-This-Month-worthy?: 2 out of 10

The sparkly Hervé party dress

Sorry-I-Can't-Pay-Rent-This-Month-worthy?: 7 out of 10

The high-waisted Hervé pencil skirt
($550, from Intermix)
Pros: Practical, simple, and classic. And it won't break the bank.
Cons: I'll be borrowing it, for the next 5 years.
