  • Visual Consultant is my favorite - to me cardigans are part of a fall wardrobe and what could be better than an orange one paired with a navy dress (esp. for fall in Los Angeles) Emily, @dadalibrarian

  • The "Event Planner" is my favorite look. I love how crisp and classic it is, and the color palette is simple but perfect. Wonderful!

    Posted on August 30, 2011

  • Oo this was a tough one. I would have to say The Product Manager outfit is perfect. It's so versatile for a quick lunch, or study session at the library, or stylish enough for a cocktail in the afternoon. Love small details like polka dots, bows, and ruching! Gorgeous look!

    Posted on August 30, 2011

  • I LOVE the "Associate Editor" look. That jacket is gorgeous!

    Posted on August 30, 2011

  • I adore nearly every look on there, as I love dressing with a hint of the 30's and I saw aspects of that in the blouses, and long cardigans...and especially of course the oxford shoes. I would say that The Event Planner, simply because who could not use a classic white blouse and the pleated skirt is to die for! I could see even wear this into Spring when it rolls around!

  • It's always so hard to pick a favorite because if I could, I would buy the whole website!
    I have picked "Pattern Developer" as my favorite. I love all the long skirts in this lookbook, they look just great. And I love the long yarn sweater, yarn always makes something look nice and comfy. You have a neutral top and sweater and then the skirt just pops right out, which I love! I love everything about it!

  • My favorite look is "Sales Executive" because I adore how the Tathlina Lake Mint top compliments the Northern Peak Asymmetrical Cardi! The indigo velvet pants add gorgeous colour to this ensemble as well. This is a chic yet comfy look I can see myself wearing to work!

    Posted on August 30, 2011

  • First of all, I just wanted to say how much I like this lookbook! Honestly, out of the past three it's my favorite (not that the others weren't great too). But these outfits would give me a very sophisticated and cute look on my college campus.

    Anyway, my favorite outfit is the Sales Executive. The pants and shirts all look comfortable, but it looks very put-together as well. Love it :)

  • The Associate Editor is my favorite not only because that's what I wish my job title were, but because it's got a great combination of different colors/patterns/textures. And I think it wouldn't be too out of place at my current workplace, but it would be way cuter than the typical monochrome fare! :)

    @HollyScalone

    Posted on August 30, 2011

  • The Associate Editor, to me, is a look that says professional chic - the perfect balance of whimsical feminine and down-to-earth business. She'll fearlessly combine patterns, but come off looking cool and collected. She'll surprise you with a pop of color, but be dependable when the deadline comes. Professional women walk that line every day, and this look does it with poise.

  • I cherish the "Editorial Writer" ensemble. I love how the simplicity of a sweater-top and a long skirt can have more charm when adding the right accessories (necklace,belt, and shoes) to it. Also, it is very important to me to remain modest with my clothing choices. This outfit will not only keep me modest, but will make me feel beautiful at the same time.

  • I adore the "Senior Buyer" look. The vintage lace skirt calls out to me, it also appears to be a piece of clothing that is very versatile, work, date-night etc. I love the combination with the Polka dot top! Its like combining two different style eras to create one very chic look! Love it!!
