I have never been one of those women that needs a closet full of professional clothing (i.e. suits, work appropriate dresses, blazers, etc.) due to the casual environment of most of my jobs. While my daily life does not require professional wear per se, I find that I have always been fascinated with this particular clothing genre and always admired women who carry it so well. Alongside my fascination came a bit of trepidation as professional wear can carry a bad reputation. Boring suits with shoulder pads, work-appropriate separates, and panty hose always popped into my mind when I thought about women who needed to “dress up” for work each day. However, after being introduced to MM. LaFleur, I am beginning to change my tune.
MM. LaFleur is an amazing company and one that I feel honored to work with as they are singlehandedly changing how women view professional work wear. Basically, MM. LaFleur wants to makeover your entire work wear closet and replace your stuffy and ready to be replaced pieces with their incredibly intuitive, impeccably designed, and extremely comfortable work separates for women on the go. One of the cool things about MM. LaFleur is that you can sign up for their Bento Box Service and receive/try on pieces that are hand selected for you based off of a pre-order style survey in the comfort of your own home! The best part? You only pay for what you keep? That’s right ladies! You don’t like anything? No worries! Just send it back and get ready for another box filled with more beautiful goodies.
One of my favorite aspects of MM. LaFleur is that they really think of every type of woman. I’m not talking just about the differences in body types (even though they totally take this into account in the best possible way!) but they really think about women in the workforce. Working women want to look and feel their best, too, even in professional clothing. MM. LaFleur has some of the most on trend pieces I have seen in a work appropriate line. Take this dress I’m wearing, for example. This is MM. LaFleur’s “Courtney Dress” and I am in love with it. The fit is everything and the beautiful pinstripes, collar, and slightly oversized structure make my heart go pitter patter. Couldn’t you imagine wearing this dress to the office and then out to dinner afterwards? I’m not going to lie, I wore this dress twice last weekend because I just couldn’t get enough of it. I styled it with my leather jacket and ankle boots because I always love a little edge but I could easily picture it with pumps and a blazer.
I even had the opportunity to visit a pop-up shop that MM. LaFleur hosted last weekend in SF. Not only was it amazing to try on beautiful pieces in the comfort of the Clift SF hotel (amazing location, btw), but the women that work for this company are the BEST. They are so sweet and extremely passionate about working for MM. LaFleur, which is something that is always exciting to see.
If you’re in the market for some new threads, I would highly recommend checking out MM. LaFleur’s collection. Many of their pieces are machine washable and wrinkle resistant, which are two things ALL women care about.

This updated theme for the working woman’s wardrobe, is an idea LONG overdue! I luv the edge that you’ve added to this great dress, looks fabulous, but I can truly see this dress with pumps, a blazer and, Oh Horror, maybe even pantyhose in a corporate environment! Smashing. Sorry this type of wardrobe innovation wasn’t available when I needed it!!!!! Well Done MM. LaFleur and thank you for bring our attention to this great concept.
