Rent the Runway for Your Child?

What do you get when you combine a stylish toddler and Rent the Runway? Well it’s either the most ridiculous idea or a very smart one.

Borrow Mini Couture caters to both girls and boys and each piece is insured against hazards like food and vomit. The idea is that parents now don’t have to invest in formalwear for their little fashionista. What do you think – is this company genius or ridiculous?

Men’s Wearhouse is now offering $57.50 per share for Jos. A. Bank, which is an increase from its prior offer of $55 per share, or $1.54 billion. Jos. A. Bank rejected the previous offer in December because it was too low. The new offer expires on March 28 unless it is extended.
