Career confession, and one that some of you might relate to: when I was applying for college many moons ago, I really had no idea what I wanted to major in. But I also hated the idea of going into college undeclared (which was totally silly, but I blame it on the control freak in me). So I did what seemed practical — I declared a business major. Not only did it make a lot of logical sense, but by going business, there was one recurring daydream in which I could constantly indulge. Here’s the gist of it: if I majored in business, it would mean that I could wear awesome power dresses to work, and rock them with sky high stilettos in my corner office overlooking a sprawling metropolis.
I may have watched one too many rom coms in high school.
Of course, the minute I got my first ‘corporate’ internship, I quickly realized that awesome, power work dresses (or any other work wear for that matter) are kind of hard to come by, and that wearing stilettos while driving an hour each way in LA traffic was completely ludicrous. Later jobs never required the power suit or power dress, but if they had, I would have been ecstatic to discover M.M. LAFLEUR, a fantastic new line of dresses that transition seamlessly from work to cocktails. Along with a large selection of options for every body type, M.M. LAFLEUR also offers a “dress finder” feature, plus the option to have up to four dresses sent to you to try on before you commit to buying them.
M.M. LAFLEUR was founded by Sarah LaFleur, and also counts Miyako Nakamura (formerly of Zac Posen and Jason Wu) as its Creative Director. I was interested in learning more about the duo behind the brand, how they got started, and their thoughts on the fashion industry. Check it out below! Read more »
