firstly the vhost stanza must be first if it is to catch all the non
existent 3rd level domains
*.rewrite.example


but your rule could be

  RewriteCond   %{HTTP_HOST} ^([a-z]+)\.rewrite\.example$
  RewriteRule   /?(.*) /Users/khinester/Sites/destinations/%1/$1 [QSA,NC]

"only if there is a 3rd level domain to rewrite.example"
"grab everything after leading slah, rewrite to 
/Users/khinester/Sites/destinations/

plus whatever the 3rd level domain was  plus /
plus whatever the request uri was without the leading slash


so 
hiya.rewrite.example/nice/to/see/you.php?name=fred ->
/Users/khinester/Sites/destinations/hiya/nice/to/see/you.php?name=fred


not sure if you need QSA and NC
