Here we have our Jewelry Production Manager, Hilary, in her staff pick for Summer! Hil picked our Sack Dress because of it's easy breezy appeal. Let's face it, it's hard to find a dress that makes you look awesome, while still being comfy as shit-- especially in this Summer heat! The dress is effortlessly chic, just like our Hildog! Also digging her berry red lips here. Photo taken by our friend Arden Wray of Boots and Pine.

Seriously though, how beautiful is Grace in our SS15 Lira Dress?! Such a babe. It's not shocking that she chose this as her Summer pick- it's perfect for all your Summer occasions. The silhouette is simple, yet refined, and the tie at the back of the neck adds just a whisper of femininity. Classic, minimal and navy?! Hell yeah. And linen too? Sold! Not many of these dresses were made, but there is limited stock in select stores now. Don't blink, because they will be gone soon :) Photo taken by our friend Arden Wray of Boots and Pine.

Cat pretty much runs the show around here and is a badass in and outside of the work place. Between fostering pit bulls and taking road trips with her BB, she plays a mean viola and on a rare occasion you might find her harmonizing alongside IGWT alum Myra Flynn at NYC shows. Peep her in our men's Bjorn Button Down here:
