There’s nothing like Fall here in the city, and more importantly there’s nothing like all the coveted, new Fall fashion that we’ve been spotting in magazines, liking on Instagram and eyeing on our ever-so stylish streets. Whether you are running from a board meeting, or graduate class, to a happy hour event or brunch with girlfriends, us girls are always searching for quality pieces that are transitional, trend-setting, chic and comfortable.
Last week the women’s clothing line Of Mercer opened the doors to it’s first pop-up shop on 345 Broome street here in NYC. Visitors were welcomed in to check out their latest looks, sip champagne, nosh on cookies from Chloe Doughy and get their hair jazzed up at the braid bar while a DJ played tunes in the background.
Dorie & Emelyn, The ladies behind Of Mercer both met at a welcoming party their first week at Wharton business school and realized they were both wearing the same, boring black sheath dress. It was then that they realized that women’s workwear needed a revamp that wouldn’t sacrifice quality because of outrageous prices or style because of office guidelines. With the help of Parsons grad and tailored clothing specialist Aja,they were able to create a well-fitted collection made of luxury Italian wool and Japanese fabrics that could carry women through the work week. What’s even more amazing is that they were able to accomplish this by cutting out the middleman and retail markups allowing it’s customers to indulge in great quality at price points offered below $250. Pretty amazing, right?

The Of Mercer collection is “Fashioned for Your Life & Suited for Your Budget” and has been featured in People Style Watch Magazine, InStyle Magazine and on actress Emmy Rossum. From stretchy jacquard graphic prints and edgy faux leather panels, to the unexpected yet perfect pockets on the Beacon dress, you will love their modern touch to these everyday closet staples. You can currently find these great pieces on OfMercer.com
