What I’m Wearing This Week: Haverdash

Hoppy Friday! This is my final review for Haverdash, and I have lots of thoughts which I'll reveal after I finish my CaaStle reviews. As for Mr. HGL, he's had mostly good days, but today he is acting a bit off so I'm watching him closely.

What am I looking for? Like many animals, rabbits are experts at hiding their pain and suffering, but some of the warning signs to watch out for include:

  • Loss of appetite and not drinking water
  • Small and misshapen stools, or not pooping at all—this can be a sign of GI Statis which can kill a rabbit pretty quickly.
  • Refuses to lie down and instead sits in a hunched over position with an arched back which is a sign of pain.
  • Sneezing and coughing
  • White mucus coming from the nose which ends up all over his paws because he rubs his nose.
  • Neediness—rabbits are quite independent like cats so when he wants me to hold him all the time or tries to steal my seat or footrest, I think it means he doesn't feel well.
  • Heavy breathing with puffed out cheeks and an open mouth.

I'm pretty certain this illness caused him to lose his sense of smell. No matter what I eat, he wants a bite, and as much as I think he'd enjoy Thai food or fried chicken, he's not allowed to eat it! I've created funny videos in the past of him sniffing my food, becoming disgusted and sprinting away, but now even the scent of pickles makes him curious and hungry. This has been going on for weeks now and I'm convinced the illness robbed him of his sense of smell. Poor little dude.


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 Nicole Miller and Area Stars arrived fresh from the dry cleaner and neatly packed inside a cardboard box.


Nicole Miller Stretch Velvet Dress


About Nicole Miller: With over 20 years' experience working in the Downtown LA Fashion textile industry and inspired by the birth of her first granddaughter Hayden, founder Hailee Lee realized that the style, detailing and quality of clothes she liked transcended age and size. She recognized the pain when clothes didn’t fit in the right places. Ultimately, she understood that the better your clothes fit and look, the better you feel in yourself. So she set about launching Hayden Los Angeles and Hayden Girls - two family-run inclusive apparel brands designed in LA for Women and Tween Girls, of all sizes, who enjoy fun, feminine, casual to boho style.

Why I rented it: A stylish and chic dress for the holidays.

How I styled it: While I didn't get to wear this dress because it was too warm, but in pics I paired it with Mignonne Gavigan Madeline Metallic Earrings, a vintage Chanel bag, Charlotte Olympia Pumps, and a vintage mink jacket.

Size and fit: I got a medium and not only did it fit perfectly, but it was cozy too! This sleeveless velvet dress features a mock neck, cap sleeves, structured shoulder pads, back zip closure, gently gathered bodice and a midi-length hem.

Condition: Great.

Honest review: Beautiful and comfy dress that would've been perfect for the holidays had it been available now.

Area Stars Crepe Jersey Mini Dress


About the designer: The design team behind Area Stars takes its inspirations from travels around the globe, and interpreting modern and traditional elements into handmade jewelry, handbags, accessories and ready to wear. The brand works with the most sought-after artisans and factories to ensure that each piece embodies a sense of personal luxury.

Why I rented it: Because it's Barbie pink (and they gave me hardly any other options)

How I styled it: I wore the darkest tights possible (thanks, Sheertex) to cover up just how short it was. I also wore it with a NEW pair of Kat Maconie Toni Ankle Boots (which I scored for half off), Kendra Scott Collette Hoops, a vintage Pucci scarf and the Chanel 19.

Size and fit: I got a medium and OMG is it tiny...I had squeeze my arms through the sleeves and stretch out the neckline and shoulders to fit into it, and I kept pulling it down to ensure it covers my butt!

This dress is crafted in a sheath silhouette with an asymmetrical neckline and hem, long sleeves, back zipper, and a ruched bodice.

Condition: Great.

Honest review: Is it a top or a dress? Well, on me it's clearly a top, but I wore it out to Open Road because a guy "friend" said it was hot. He also suggested I buy it, so I did because it was only $8. Will I wear it again in public? Probably not... more than likely I'll give it to one of my cousin's teen daughters.

Nicole Miller Stretchy Matte Mini Dress


Why I rented it: Little black dresses are super versatile, and I loved the shoulder pads.

How I styled it: I wore this dress to work with Lele Sadoughi Small Crystal Lily Earrings, a vintage studded leather belt, Sheertex Front and Back Seam Tights, Kat Maconie Ankle Boots, Gucci Studded Leather Jacket, and the Balenciaga Graffiti Bag.

Size and fit: I got a medium and the fit was quite perfect, but a little stretched out. This stretchy matter jersey dress features a mock neck, defined shoulder pads with pleated fabric, long sleeves, back zip closure, blouson waist, and tulip hem.

Condition: Very good.

Honest review: I wore this dress to work, and it was great. It's cozy, stylish and super versatile.


  • 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 wore the black Nicole Miller dress the most. Would've loved to wear the velvet dress, but I got it too early in the season. And I ended up buying the Area Stars dress because it was $8.
  • Did they meet or exceed expectations? Met expectations. I STILL wish I had more of a say in what I received. 
  • 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. 


I'm sure you've noticed how often I wear my Kat Maconie Sock Boots. They're comfy, stylish, versatile, and unique. Based out of London, this contemporary fashion brand has very cool and very well-made statement pieces that won't totally break the bank (if you shop during one of their sales). So, when I was targeted by their Black Friday sale on social media a few weeks ago, I checked out a few pairs of shoes and landed on the Toni Ankle Boots.


And while I love buying designer resale shoes for a fraction of the retail price, sometimes a girl needs a new pair. This isn't a paid ad for the brand... I just wanted to share one of my favorite finds!

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.

I always look forward to Friday so I can read your lovely reviews and live vicariously through you, lol! I never dress up fancy since I dropped down so many sizes in the past two years and can’t spend lots of money on clothes just yet so maybe a rental sub would be a good idea for me.

Thank you, Mallory! I would suggest Haverdash since it’s quite economical and you can get up to 9 pieces a month!
