How I Stay on Trend By Renting from Haverdash

The start of a new year means hitting the refresh button. I know many of you have made New Year’s resolutions, but does that extend to your closet, too? If you’re anything like me, then you’re trying to cut the clutter and reduce the overwhelm which extends to my wardrobe, too.

In 2018, I was first introduced to the concept of renting my wardrobe. And then in 2019, I met Haverdash. Haverdash is a newer clothing rental subscription service providing unlimited access to the latest looks from boutique brands like 1.State, cupcakes and cashmere, French Connection, BB Dakota, Comune, J.O.A., and many, many more. I love keeping up with the trends and mixing up my wardrobe, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve purchased something to only wear it once or to find it hanging in my closet with the tags still on it. 

While I have worked to reduce these bad habits, renting my wardrobe helps me eliminate this problem completely. By borrowing the trend first, I can see if I actually like the style and try it with the rest of my wardrobe. It’s kind of like the revolving closet from Clueless that so many of us dreamed about when we were younger. (Who am I kidding, I still dream about this!)

If kicking off the New Year by renting a wardrobe with the help of Haverdash sounds up your alley, then read on for all of the details!

5 Easy to Create Carrie Bradshaw Costumes

I came down with a summer cold at the end of July, and to get me through my boring weekend of canceled plans, I began re-watching Sex and the City. I’ve always fancied myself a bit of a Carrie. While I don’t have the wild curly hair, a bad smoking habit of smoking, and have not been on nearly as many dates as Carrie Bradshaw, her creative fashion, carefree spirit, and freelance lifestyle have always appealed to me.

What I Cannot Wait to Wear this Fall // Fall Trends in Fashion

It feels a little strange talking about fall trends in fashion already. However, in typical Seattle form, the weather took a quick turn from hot and humid to rainy and stormy over the weekend. On Saturday night, we had a wild thunderstorm complete with a torrential downpour and lightning that lit up the sky like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Guess it’s not too early for fall fashion after all!

How I Save Money by Renting my Wardrobe // Armoire Review

I don’t think it’s a huge secret: I love clothes. I spend most of my “fun” money on fashion related things, so when I heard about the concept of renting a wardrobe, I was completely intrigued. Entire Armoire, a Seattle-based clothing rental service which I’ll be sharing more about in this Armoire review.

Armoire Review

A couple of years ago, I learned of Armoire during an event at a women-focused co-working space here in Seattle. Armoire was positioning themselves as a wardrobe rental service for professionals, and while the clothes they had on display didn’t capture me at the time, the concept most definitely did! Later, I was invited to a launch party for The OULA Company, which makes fun, colorful floral and abstract patterned dresses that immediately grabbed my attention. I said yes and found myself on Capitol Hill to see the garments in person and hear more about Armoire.

Despite the lack of color my “stylist” automatically assigned me, the staff promised that their service would learn my style over time and recommend things that were more my style. (My “stylist” is actually a computer-generated algorithm, which is one of the things that Armoire prides itself on.) When an offer to sign up for just $49 popped up a few weeks later, it was the push I needed to give the service a try.

And what can I say, I’ve been addicted ever since! So why have I stuck with Armoire all of these months? Today I thought I’d give an honest, non-sponsored Armoire review. And let’s be real, I’m always honest regardless of sponsorship. But, just clarifying here. ;) I do pay for this subscription myself.
