What I’m Wearing This Week: Haverdash

Hoppy Friday! I've gotten the hang of Haverdash, and how to handle my rentals and returns, but I had a huge fright earlier in the week when I thought I accidentally sent two items to Armoire. So, after frantically searching through my place and checking my rentals closet (I leave everything there, so I don't get them confused with my stuff), I contacted Armoire and sent them pics of the Express top and Nicole Miller skirt, and they didn't see them, but said they'd keep an eye out and let me know.

A week later as I was cleaning my place for my sister's visit, I found both pieces smashed to the side of the bed and dangling on the floor. That's also when I realized the dust bunnies under my bed were bigger than Mr. HGL and it's time for a serious cleaning!

The reason I thought I sent them items to Armoire is that I accidentally sent them my VS strapless bra about a month ago and had to buy a new one. Well, thankfully Haverdash's clothes were recovered so they don't hate me. PHEW! This will be a shorter week because I receive three items at a time.


Welcome back to What I'm Wearing This Week — Haverdash where you can rent and wear designer items by names you know and love, and up-and-coming designers too!

For the newbies to WIWTW, every Friday 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. Well, that's if the price is right!

For sizing reference, I am 5'11", weigh 140 pounds, and have a 33" inseam.

Haverdash is a clothing rental service that gives members unlimited style options for one flat fee. Powered by CaaStle, the leading B2B rental technology and logistics company in the U.S.

This is a review of their plan that lets you rent 3 pieces at a time for $59 a month. For an extra $5 per box, if you use the Dart feature, you can choose the items and speed up shipping too.


This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)



All three items by Vince, Express, and Nicole Miller arrived fresh from the dry cleaner and neatly packed inside a cardboard box.


Vince Knit V-Neck Dress


About the Designer: Since their founding in 2002, Vince has been focused on timeless designs with California-inspired ease.

The enduring wearability of each piece attracted a growing affinity for our womenswear — so in 2007, they introduced men’s, reflecting the same quality and quiet sophistication that people came to us for season after season.

Since then, their collections have continued to grow, with women’s and men’s ready-to-wear complemented by shoes, handbags, home goods, and more, each rendered in lasting materials carefully selected by their design team — from luxuriously soft, signature Plush Cashmere to buttery leather and incandescent silks.

Every piece is finished with thoughtful, distinctive details, resulting in wardrobe staples that endure the test of time, trends, and taste.

Why I rented it: It looked cozy and super versatile (and it was)!

How I styled it: I tore through my closet to see what I could pair with this dress and found a few options like my B-Low the Belt Patent Leather Belt, Kat Maconie Sock Boots, and a pair of earrings and necklace by Rocksbox Redefined. I also went to the silver side and whipped out a Maje Studded Leather Jacket, Rag & Bone Studded Ankle Boots, a vintage belt, a pair of earrings from & Other Stories, and carried the Balenciaga City Clutch.

Size and fit: I ordered a small because the medium was not available and I'm glad I did because it runs a little large. This V-neck dress still slid off my shoulders a little, but no big deal. It's very soft and almost feels like a cashmere blend, despite being made of everything else. It's a ribbed knit pullover design with long sleeves, a fitted body, and a midi-length hem.

Condition: Excellent. Almost like new.

Honest review: Since the resale price was only $50 and it's a great winter dress that goes with just about everything, I debated making it mine, but changed my mind at the last minute. I can always rent it again!

Express Body Contour Silky Twist Crop Top, Nicole Miller Ruched Midi Skirt

About Nicole Miller: NICOLE MILLER is a global fashion and lifestyle brand headquartered in New York City.

Why I rented it: I thought the top was cute and would look good with the skirt, and I totally forgot about Express!

How I styled it: When I rented these two pieces, I thought about wearing them together to the office, but the top was too cropped, and the skirt's waist was too stretched out to make it work. I also paired it with Charlotte Olympia Suede Pumps. I also tried the top with Alice + Olivia Flares, Tecova Ostrich Cowboy Boots, and a studded leather jacket.

Size and fit: I got a medium in both the skirt and top, and the top was snug, while the skirt was a bit stretched out.

Condition: The top was in great shape, but the skirt looked like it had been worn dozens of times.

Honest review: The top was a little too small and cropped on me and the skirt was quite worn and stretched out in the waist.


  • 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 a ton of wear out of the Vince dress and didn't want to send it back!
  • Did they meet or exceed expectations? Exceed.
  • What’s the return process like? Simple! Just place your items in the pre-paid garment bag and drop it off at one of your nearest USPS. 


So, you may be wondering if Mr. HGL is improving, and he's not. We went back to the vet the other day and she said if the next round of medication and shots don't work, I need to consider putting him down. He's struggling to breathe and he's not eating much because it's so uncomfortable. He's hunched over half the time in pain and I'm absolutely beside myself. I feel like a horrible person for putting him through all these medications, treatments, and shots to keep him alive, but the other option is just as cruel. It's really difficult! Next week I'll give you a rundown of all the steps we're taking to keep him alive, and hopefully I'll have better news too. Until then, here's a pic of him in his nebulizer treatment and asleep at the window.

And as you know, I just started a new job, and while they're understanding, I cannot be the problem child a little over a month in because I've got pet drama, family drama, and car drama too. I was supposed to take my dad to Hopkins the other day for outpatient surgery, but my car had other plans, so they had to reschedule the procedure. I feel like I'm drowning, and it's just a bunny. I don't know how parents do it and y'all keep it together so well.

But my clothing rentals are a very welcomed distraction... at least they give me something to look forward to every week.

VALUE BREAKDOWN: You can up to get 9 items a month for $59/month. I don't know the total value because they don't show the retail price versus the resale price.

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.

Oh Mary, I’m so sorry! It’s not “just a bunny.” He’s family and losing a pet — or even the thought of losing a pet — can be traumatizing. Hoping you find comfort and peace, come what may.

I love your reviews….while I don’t always agree, you have such great insight and knowledge about the clothes you review…and have great insight into what works for YOU. I am so sorry about Mr. HGL….he is such a sweet spirit. Please remember, you are his whole world. You have to make the decisions. Please make them about HIM and not about you. He will let you know when it’s time…. Also, you can have a vet come to your home, rather than doing it at a clinic. Best decision we ever made….

I am so sorry you’re going through such a horrible time. Being an adult really sucks.
Having gone through very similar situations now several times, it doesn’t get any better, but hang in there and you will know the right thing to do with Mr HGL.
I hold you and your family in my thoughts.

Thank you, Barbara. Life is difficult, and the older we get, the harder it is.

I’m so sorry about Mr. HGL. I’ve been following your posts a while and love them. Sometimes the choices we make about our fur family are so very hard but necessary. My prayers for you and him.
I love the black dress especially with the black jacket. I’d personally love seeing it with the graffiti bag you use. Just my style!
Regarding the green top and skirt. The green top is the most unique top I’ve ever seen. So architectural in creation yet I found myself looking at it like maybe just a bit much until you wore it with the jeans. I loved it then. Not for me but others. The sizing I’m sure is maddening.
I have a mom we’re busy with as well. You have so much on your plate and your posts are so enjoyed. Thank you!

I’m so, so sorry to hear about Mr. HGL- I’ve always looked forward to your reviews to see photos of him. I lost one of my guinea pigs a few weeks ago so I sympathize so much, and my horse is currently in the hospital and her condition worsening, so I know how hard it is to have a sick pet- I’ll be keeping Mr. HGL in mind and sending positive thoughts, I hope he recovers!

It is a hard decision, but it isn’t cruel if he is suffering. In the end you will know what is best for him. Fingers crossed the meds work and he gets back to himself!

Hi Mary,
I’m sorry for all the difficulties you are dealing with right now. As a pet parent I understand how hard it is. You are Mr. HGL’s world. He is your sole responsibility and you are giving him the best care. It is never easy being given the ability to decide when it’s time to say goodbye. My thoughts are with you for Mr. HGL and for your dad as well.

Thank you, Joan! Yesterday was really bad, but others reminded me he’s only 2 1/2 days into his new medications, and to think positively. He seems a little better today. He’s not hunched over struggling to breath, he’s eating, and relaxing and sleeping a bit more. I really hope these human-sized doses work their magic.
