Happy Monday! To spice up the start of your week, let me introduce you to a new high-style yet office-appropriate line: M.M. LAFLEUR. Brought to us by a former designer for Zac Posen and Jason Wu, M.M. LAFLEUR creates a fashionable alternative to the business suit: the stylish yet professional dress that fits like a glove. The quality of material and construction, the attention to little details, and the foxy feminine cut of this simple, sophisticated blue gray number had me itching to make it my own. For those of us that don’t work in a traditional office setting, sauce it up with some sassy black sandals, and gold and black jewelry. And for those of you that do, put the sass to work for after-work drinks, a cocktail party or wedding event. Win-win!

Mad Men-esque, super versatile, and to top it off: the collection runs under $300 a pop, and many of the pieces can be machine-washed!

Boring business suits, be gone!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. That dress looks so well made and really flattering, and you look great in it of course! Loving the necklace too!

    1. Ha! Yes I torture the husband with these shoots. You could say I’m picky about the execution of my vision! LOL

  2. I think you have added a new career to you extensive list of talents — model! You look beautiful.

  3. I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later and
    see if the problem still exists.
