Simplify Your Spring Wardrobe With This One Easy Piece
I don’t know about you but I seem to have 2 speeds in my closet — super casual/working from home outfits, or dressy/office-cocktail. What about the in-between outfits? The teacher’s conference / going to a museum / lunch with a former colleague downtown-kind of outfits? Thanks to my friend Molly (you can follow her on Instagram @mollymorrisdesigns), I heard about Xander & their divine shirtdresses, which can occupy that in-between territory quite effortlessly...
I don’t know the founder of Xander personally, but apparently she raided her husband’s closet for inspiration & ended up using his tailor to create prototypes. Her founding idea is that Xander could be a “modern woman’s shirtdress maker.” Love it!
Today, Xander is headquartered in New Canaan, CT (10 minutes from where I grew up, so I have to support a fellow Connecticut girl:) — and she has a workshop in NYC where all her garments are manufactured. (Note: each of these items comes in other colors, so check out their website - Xander - for more options.)
Please let me know if you know of other brands like this created by women for women — just email me at Lee@ElegantMayhem.com. I’d love to to support them and give them more word-of-mouth business!
