A Chicago lifestyle and fashion blogger, Janet Mandell had become known for her closet full of one-of-a-kind pieces. Her friends would often borrow clothes and accessories for weekend events–and this gave her husband, Robert Mandell, an idea. He proposed starting a business called Janet’s Closet. Dozens more sizes and styles later, By:Fashionaholic was born.
By:Fashionaholic creates opportunities to experience the luxury of high-fashion for any event. Women can step into the world of couture and one-of-a-kind designer clothing and accessories–all under the guidance of Janet’s expert team.
