October 27, 2014

It was a long time coming, but fall is finally here—and not a moment too soon, since Sarah’s autumn wardrobe is on point. Not only is she our fearless leader and CEO, but she just happens to look amazing in our latest styles.

In this three-part series, she (reluctantly) agreed to let us follow her as she jetted around town. Luckily for us, blogger and photographer Jenny Liu was on hand to capture Sarah in her element.

Below, Sarah styles the Alex for a day of back-to-back meetings, followed by a decadent (and well-deserved) dinner uptown.

“I love this dress so much. On days like today, I can wear it to a meeting with investors and feel really put-together. But tonight when I show up for dinner with friends, I won’t feel like I’m in ‘work clothes.’ It’s the best of both worlds.”

“High-low is my mantra for styling. This dress is pretty formal, so I style it with Warby Parker sunglasses, a Zara bag, my MM crisscross ring, a simple gold bangle, and shoes from Céline that I scored at a sample sale.”

“You wouldn’t know it from how polished it looks, but this dress is actually super comfortable. The lining is so soft—it seriously feels like flannel sheets. It has tons of stretch, and I feel like I could wear it forever. How many cocktail dresses can you say that about?”

“The Alex is really the ultimate day-to-night dress. When we were designing it, I knew I would love it. But when I saw the final product, I was blown away. Since then, I’ve been wearing it nonstop.”
