Recently I received this dress from M.M.LaFleur and have fallen in love! I love how versatile, classic, and conservative this piece is. It’s essentially a faux wrap dress that is ideal for women like me who like to conceal their décolletage! There’s thankfully no wardrobe malfunctions with this dress, yet it’s elegant and flattering to transition from daytime to dinner. It feels a bit like wearing a lightweight silk scarf – soft and drapey. In fact, I had Ramsey video my photography session (sort of a behind the scenes) so that you can see how the silk crepe dress moves. It even comes in a top version (see below). Almost all of the pieces come in several colors too! M.M.LaFleur offers a lovely selection of classic but modern staples that are great for work, luncheons, and everyday wear. Discover the brand with me.
A little background on this brand… M.M.LaFleur was founded by a woman in finance who was looking for a more practical, yet stylish and inspired wardrobe for work. The designers have aimed to make the clothing travel-friendly, machine washable, sophisticated, and versatile. Their central belief that the brand is built on is this: “When women succeed in the workplace, the world becomes a better place.” Is that not amazing? So empowering and encouraging! This brand certainly achieves their goal of helping women become empowered by self-presentation.
One of the coolest thing about M.M.LaFleur is that they incorporate stylists into their business. So if putting together an outfit is hard for you or if you just need some fresh ideas to re-think your clothes, M.M.LaFleur will help you if you request a “Bento Box” or styling appointment at their showrooms and pop-ups. For my Texas readers, there is one in Houston! See all of their current locations here. Alternatively, you can shop on your own from their website here like I did. A stylist is available via chat if needed. You can shop for classic dresses, separates, knits, suiting, accessories, jewelry, and shoes.
Be sure to check out the Behind The Scenes video Ramsey shot of this blog post photo session. It will show you how beautifully the dress moves and exactly how to wrap it. For size reference I am wearing a size medium and it fits true to size. Don’t laugh – this is raw video footage of an actual photo shoot with my amazing photographer Audrie Dollins.
