What to Wear: MM Lafleur
Working in finance, Sarah became so frustrated at the clothing options for women in the industry that she decided to start her own clothing company – MM Lafleur. My friend, an NYU grad student who recently heard Sarah speak, told me about the brand and I was instantly intrigued. I promptly visited the store online and purchased this dress.
Sarah joined with designer Miyako – formerly of Zac Posen and Jason Wu – to realize her idea of stylish yet professional apparel. Marks of high-quality are present well beyond the tasteful packaging that greeted me upon opening: the material is thick and has just the right amount of stretch. Stitching is strong and neat.
The dress is cut to be fitted in the bust and hips with a looser, less body-hugging construction in the waist and tapering slightly in the at the skirt. The site claims the dress is as comfortable as pajamas. It’s not a lie! I might need to order the dress in black, too.
I’m looking forward to getting to know the brand better! Well done Sarah.
