Inspiration Behind The V-Neck Top

Inspiration Behind The V-Neck Top

Sometimes this top gets overlooked. I get it. It's not as flashy as the double peplum. But, it's such a workhorse. Like a not so basic, basic. It looks good tucked in or left untucked thanks to the side-seam splits. And it's fitted without being too fitted (yet not boxy) thanks to the back yolk. The navy pinstripes function as a neutral and can be worn with just about anything. Pair it with your favorite work pants, denim, chinos, a pencil skirt, or shorts.

How I Got the Idea to Start a Clothing Line

How I Got the Idea to Start a Clothing Line

I've shared a little bit about how I got the idea to start this clothing line over the past year. But, I don't think I've told the entire story in one place and I was inspired to do so after sharing the above picture on Instagram stories.

Inspiration Behind The Pencil Skirt

Inspiration Behind The Pencil Skirt

I describe this skirt as "high waisted denim in skirt form". Why? Because it's made out of the same denim as your favorite skinny jeans. So it's stretchy, easy to move in, and my favorite part, it provides the same "holds you in" effect as high rise denim. Plus, it's appropriate for the office. So, it's the perfect piece of denim in my book.

Inspiration Behind The Double Peplum Top

Inspiration Behind The Double Peplum Top

My love for peplum tops knows no bounds. I find that they are extremely flattering no matter your height or shape. I know, some people are quick to say that they can't wear peplum tops. They've even tried some and they didn't work. But, I'm here to tell you that a peplum top can work for you, you just haven't found the right one.

My Favorite Bags for Work & Travel

My Favorite Bags for Work & Travel

You've probably seen a crossbody in photos on Instagram or on the blog. And they are my favorite casual, everyday bag. My favorites are from Kate Spade (a true style icon of mine).  But, when commuting to the office every day or traveling for work, I need to be able to lug my laptop, charger, notebook, and a handful of other things with me. So, a crossbody just won't cut it.

Why Shorts?

Why Shorts?

I'm a dress girl, as you probably noticed. Three out of the first six pieces I designed and released for ME were dresses (and more were developed, I just haven't been able to produce them). But, since moving to DC, I realized the need for a good pair of shorts. But, shorts are hard to find. Especially if a basic pair of chinos or jean shorts aren't your thing. Which, in my case, they aren't. So, I spent a year buying and trying shorts, reading reviews, and talking to friends to figure out what worked and what didn't.

It's Our Anniversary - The Brand Turns 1

I can't believe it, but the ME brand turns one on August 1st! The year completely flew by and to be honest, the anniversary snuck up on me. But, I have something exciting in the works as a belated celebration, so stay tuned for more details!

Recap: Sourcing Fabric for Spring 2019 in NYC

Recap: Sourcing Fabric for Spring 2019 in NYC

In mid-July I made the trip up to New York City to attend fabric expos and meet with suppliers in their showroom to source fabric for Summer 2019. No, that's not a typo. I'm sourcing for Summer 2019 while Summer 2018 is in full swing and Winter 2018 is in production.

I'm back from an unintended blogging hiatus to share the floral sheath dress with you. It's currently available for pre-order (in both regular and tall sizes) and 15% off with code PREORDER15; you can shop it here. The dress is the same silhouette and shares the same fit as the sheath dress in textured stripe, with some minor updates based on customer feedback. And, yes, it has pockets!

Introducing the Summer 2018 Collection

Introducing the Summer 2018 Collection

I'm SO excited to introduce the Summer 2018 Collection. This collection has been a long time coming. When I first set out on this journey, I had a list of pieces that I'd been searching for but was unable to find in tall sizes. The list was long, but included a random assortment of things like a feminine blazer and a wrap dress. For the most part, they were not season-specific and were not part of a cohesive collection. But, they all gave a small nod to my personal style - versatile, flattering, and feminine silhouettes in great fabrics.

Her excitement on a new trail just puts a smile on my face. Today, I'm sharing five things we love to do with our dog in DC (and highly recommend even if you don't have a dog).
