When I started a job earlier this year that had an actual dress code and required me to step up my professional style (jeans and a button-down was not going to cut it anymore), I found myself looking for new ways to build my business wardrobe. After dabbling in a couple of subscription box companies, I came across MM.LaFleur. It was love at first sight with the first box received. I started with purchasing one beautifully made top and eventually, my stylist sent me a pair of pants that I literally wear at least once a week. All without having to step foot into a store. 

Now, I’m not one who likes to ask for help. This trait pretty much drives everyone around me crazy and I’m slowly learning that asking for help is hugely advantages and by no means a marker of my independence or capabilities. I don't even particularly like interacting with the fitting room people in stores. Hence, I was a bit hesitant when the opportunity came up to schedule an in-person styling session with an MM.LaFleur stylist. This one-on-one appointment is known as an “Out-of-Office" experience and here's how mine went.
