What I’m Wearing This Week: Armoire

I have good news to report: Armoire continues to add new items to their rotation and some of them are pretty cute! I can't say that they're exactly my style, but I'm able to find more options to wear and I like how quickly I can pack up my items and switch out. Whereas with RTR, you have to wait it out each month which can be frustrating because sometimes you just want a revolving wardrobe.


Welcome back to What I'm Wearing This Week: Armoire. For the newbies, every Friday on WIWTW I'll recap the clothing rentals I wore for the week. I’ll take you on a trip through my life, where I’m going, what’s missing in my closet, my current obsessions, what I’m excited to try, and maybe even buy. We’ll explore designers and trends, and a variety of styles and brands. And each week I’ll fill you in on why I chose each item, the total value of the rental compared to the retail price (as of today I've rented $56,774 worth of clothing), and more.

Armoire, which is a clothing rental company for women, is all about female empowerment. From the hand-selected and curated inventory of styles that are designed by the Boss Lady, for the Boss Lady, to their involvement with female-powered brands, and their partnership with Dress for Success Seattle, they’re a brand built for today’s woman. 

This is a review of the Unlimited Plan for $249/month.

All four items by Yumi Kim, Hunter Bell, Amanda Uprichard, and Veronica Beard arrived on time and in great condition. Each item was fresh from the dry cleaner and neatly folded.


Yumi Kim Floral Print Asymmetrical Hem Dress, Retail Value $248, Armoire $112


About the Designer: Surrounded by extraordinary women her entire life, including her mother who wore exotic prints and bold florals and proudly donned the classic Ao Dai (a traditional Vietnamese dress), Kim Phan was inspired by these bold women who gave her strength. When she moved to New York in 2004 and adopted a loving Yorkshire Terrier named Yumi, YUMI KIM was born.

Every piece has a story to tell. Coveted for its sunny color combinations and array of florals, the brand reflects the unique experiences that have shaped her life.

How I styled it: I don't think I wore this dress anywhere outside of my Zoom calls at home, but I wore it with Lele Sadoughi Petite Jelly Bean Hoops and bracelet, Etsy Obi Belt, and the Charlotte Olympia Suede Slingback pumps.

Size and fit: I got the medium and the fit is true to size. This unlined, floral print dress features a round neckline, long sleeves with buttoned cuffs, back keyhole closure, and a high-low hem.

Condition: Very good, but a little worn.

Honest review: It was a bit worn, the fabric wasn't the best, and the elastic closure at the buttoned cuff was torn. It also felt a little too Easter Sunday 1990 for me.

Hunter Bell Patterson Floral Print Puff Sleeve Dress, Retail Value $385, Armoire $116


About the designer: Hunter Bell is an American fashion designer based in New York City and the owner of Hunter Dixon. Bell was the season two winner of Fashion Star. She attended the University of Alabama and graduated in 2003 with a degree in fashion design and studio art.

How I styled it: I wrapped on the Obi Leather Belt and slipped my feet into a pair of Carolina Herrera Ruffled Leather Point Toe Flats and called it a day.

Size and fit: Put some spring in your step with this puffed sleeve dress in a sleek and smooth cotton and elastane blend with a round neckline, back zip closure, and a gathered midi-length skirt. I ordered the 6 and it fit like a glove!

Condition: Great.

Honest review: It's cozy and it's a beautiful floral print that's perfect for spring, but without the belt, I look like I'm joining a religious cult featured on Netflix.

Amanda Uprichard Julianne Dropped Waist Puff Sleeve Dress, Retail Value $194, Armoire $136


About the designer: Amanda Uprichard is known for creating statement pieces in luxe fabrics and bold hues, paying close attention to details that make each style ultra-feminine.

How I styled it: I wore this dress to meet a friend for dinner and drinks at Patsy's American and wow was it a scene. How did I not know about this happy hour? I wore it with black fishnet tights, Gucci Studded Leather Jacket, and Kat Maconie Sock Boots.

Size and fit: I got a size 6 and it fits like a boxier, dropped-waist design. It's crafted in breezy polyester, this hot pink dress features a round neckline, short puffed sleeves, back keyhole hook-and-eye closure, and a dropped waist with flounced hem.

Condition: Great.

Honest review: Love the color, puffed sleeves, and dropped waist design. I decided to keep it a little longer.

Veronica Beard Corrine Plaid Print Shirt Dress, Retail Value $595, Armoire $315


About the designer: "We believe in enduring personal style. We believe in the doers and makers, the movers and shakers.  We believe that a dream wardrobe has to work for real life. Look good, feel good, do good." - The Veronicas

Veronica Swanson Beard and Veronica Miele Beard are the sisters-in-law and design duo behind namesake contemporary label Veronica Beard. Launching with a signature jacket style, the “Dickey” single-button blazer, the company found its niche in the contemporary market, as the jacket’s popularity quickly caught on with celebrities and influencers. The brand is carried by over 500 global distributors, including Nordstrom, Shopbop, and Bergdorf Goodman, and is one of the top-performing contemporary labels in the industry.

How I styled it: I threw on a newsboy cap, a shearling vest, Tecova Cowboy Boots, and a pair of Sheertex tights. I'll discuss my thoughts on these tights at the end of this week's review.

Size and fit: Crafted in a linen and cotton blend, this textural shirt dress features a shirt collar, long sleeves with buttoned cuffs, button-front closure, buttoned flap patch pockets, elasticized waistband with drawstring closure, and buttoned hip patch pockets. I got the 6 and it was a bit fitted up top, and bigger on the bottom, but I like that it's adjustable with the drawstring closure and the buttons.

Condition: Like new (until I spilled coffee on it).

Honest review: I got a ton of wear out of this piece. It's totally casual cool, goes with a lot in my closet, and it's cozy. My only complaint is that it was a little tight in the chest.


  • What items were most helpful and versatile to own this week to ensure I got the most out of my rental and completed the look I craved? I got the most wear out of the Amanda Uprichard dress and the Veronica Beard Shirt Dress. I love the color of the AU, and the simplicity of the design, and I like the rock n' roll, downtown chic vibe of the VB dress.
  • Did they meet or exceed expectations? Amoire exceeded expectations this week. 
  • What’s the return process like? Place the items in the bag, seal it up and that's it!


So, let's talk about Sheertex tights. So, you're probably wondering if Sheertex tights are worth it? Not if you pay full price, but if you're able to find them at a discount (which they seem to offer quite often) then yes, Sheertex tights are worth it.

One of the first occasions I wore them, I busted my a$$ in my heels and ended up with a nasty bruise on my knee. And while you can see a slight pull and gathering on the tights in that spot, they did not tear which is impressive because my knee sure did! After dozens of wears and washes, the tights are still smooth and without nubs. The waistband has not stretched out, and despite a few pulls here and there, they are still in really good shape.

They are not worth $100, but if you can find them for $49 and below, I would suggest buying a pair. I've worn tights for over a year in the past, but they ended up looking old and nubby. Meanwhile, Sheertext tights could probably make it through another winter without replacing.

I have not tried to cut them with a pair of scissors... I will wait until I'm ready to throw them in the trash.

CAN YOU STILL GET THIS BOX IF YOU SIGN UP TODAY? Yes, all these items are still available to rent.

ACTIVE DEAL: Get $30 OFF 1 month of the 7-item plan OR 50% OFF 1 month of the unlimited plan.

VALUE BREAKDOWN: The Unlimited membership costs $249/month and so far, I've received styles with a retail value of $56,774!

If shopping were an Olympic sport, I’d be a gold medalist. And while my bank account often feels the crunch, I just can’t stop buying secondhand clothing and accessories, under-the-radar designer goods, stuffed animal unicorns (I have about 75), and toys for my pet bunny rabbit. After 20 years of city slicking in NYC and DC, I now have a car and love to tour the Virginia countryside looking for vintage shops, undiscovered wineries and breweries, historic sites, and Thai restaurants—I’m addicted to Thai food. I never leave home without a spare phone charger because I love horror movies and therefore have an irrational fear of being stranded somewhere with a dead battery.

The Amanda Uprichard dress looks great on you, definitely your color! And the styling is perfect. The first dress was too “sweet” and the second is giving me Laura Ashley flashbacks 🤮. Love Veronica Beard as a whole

That Hunter Bell dress is something else… and not in a good way. If it was much shorter and in a dropped waist design with a flounced hem, it would be adorable!

You nailed it… the styling you did was great but without the bits you added, you definitely could have been in a cult.

I have noticed how much your use if the easy obi belt helps when the waitline of a dress might hit your waist a little short since you’re tall. I havethe same problem. It finally hit me that I could use one too! I checked easy and considering my options. Nice to see Mr HGL. Hope he is doing better.

I try to hide the high waist, so I don’t look like a total weirdo, but it doesn’t always work in my favor. I love this leather corset https://bit.ly/3YS5wGo but it’s so pricey! He’s been congested so I took him to the vet the other day. He does not enjoy taking his meds and fights me as best as he can!

He’s just like my cat. Once I had to pay alot of money for an antibiotic injection for her because there was no way she was letting me give her a pill 3 times a day for 2 weeks. Thank you for the suggestion.
