“Most ‘special occasion’ items are only worn once, maybe twice, so I couldn’t justify the cost, even for the most fabulous pieces. Well, now I don’t have to fret! I could get used to feeling golden in By:Fashionaholic pieces!!”

– Christina of the No Special Occasion Blog

Our Story

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. The high-end designer rental service opens the door to unique runway pieces, a one-hour styling session, concierge service, and specially curated pieces to fit each woman’s style and need.
