A few words on NOT so hot work attire...
Alright people, I know it's work, but come on! You can do better than that! Just look at our quote of the day on Twitter and the Facebook fan page...that Hubert de Givenchy was one wise man! It's time to get rid of your boring work attire. Don't use casual Friday as an excuse to whip out your cut up wrangler jeans from the '90s. Use this opportunity to wear a bright colored, ruffled sundress, or a great pair of dark wash jeans with a white ruffled blouse, (can you tell we like ruffles?) We think it's important to look fabulous and fashionable at work, which is why our collections have great outfits suitable for days in the office! Get rid of the collared button-up shirts you KNOW are either too tight or look like they belonged to your father, and try our custom fit shirts, made using the highest quality of raw materials! It's 2010 and time to look hot at work!

Introducing our Look of the Day!

It's summer. You're on the way to work, and all you're thinking about is how you'd rather be lounging poolside in that cute new suit you saw in that magazine the other day, long island in one hand and a great book or magazine in the other. But then reality kicks in, and you realize you're trapped head to toe in boring and suffocating work attire, dreading a long day in the office. We know the feeling. And that's why we're here to help. Check out our look of the day in the picture shown, acceptable to wear in the office and PERFECT for that hot July weather! Stay cool while impressing your coworkers!

Skirt: Ruffle Back Pencil Skirt, on sale for $65.00
