Founder & CEO

Lauren Wilson

My sale shopping strategy is to lean into pieces I know I will over and over again. While I always have the urge to splurge on something outside my normal comfort zone, I find that investing in staples (at a better price!) is something I don’t regret. Summer is coming up, and I know I’ll be living in pretty dresses, a unique (but flat) shoe and a go-with everything bag. The past few seasons, a white shoe has replaced my normal neutrals. It feels fresh and doubles down on a summer feeling— and in Hermes signature clog, you can't wrong... Alessandra Rich is queen of ladylike cool, fans include Kate Middleton and Sienna Miller, I always love her prints, and the silhouettes are simultaneously girly with a dash of sexy.

There's a reason why everything Hermes designs I've treasured for a lifetime. The label always crafts a timeless update to classic silhouettes, like these heritage "Carlotta" clogs which pair effortlessly to rigid denim and loose linens alike.

Alessandra Rich Dress

I've always adored Alessandra Rich's charming prints that strike the perfect balance between femininity and simplicity. Take this midi silhouette from the brand: the traditional style, punctuated with a peplum waist and a mock standing collar, channels both statement and staple.

Head of Fashion

Brian Solis

Yves Saint Laurent runs deep in my fashion career. Having spending time working for the brand between NYC and Paris, I have a deep appreciation for the House of Saint Laurent. Monsieur Saint Laurent created the ‘Le Smoking’ tuxedo for women in 1966 it was the first of its kind. Season after season the House creates a new version in the same grain de pourdre fabrics M. Saint Laurent first used. The silhouette is very reminiscent of then Creative Director, Stefano Pilati’s, Spring 2008 campaign worn by Kate Moss. This LBD is the perfect piece to pull out and wear on its own, fishnets or accessories with jewelry.

Reminiscent of Saint Laurent's 'Le Smoking' tuxedo from 1966, I'm drawn to this rendition of the LBD from the designer that runs deep in my fashion career. This look is too quintessential not to shine alone, but I'll never say no to styling with some fishnets and glamorous accessories!

Chanel Sandals

If you haven't seen it, Chanel's Spring 2019 runway show is a Dora Must-watch! The late Creative Director, Karl Lagerfield, takes you sur la plage and diversifies the ways to wear a sandal for everyday wear. These logo embellished heels in a soft blue hue straight from the C-shore make the perfect match to everything from silky dresses to tweed oversized tailoring.
