Office Apropos: Winter 2017 (Part 1!)

It’s heeeeeere so get it while it’s freezing!



So we meet again, Office Apropos, this time at the intersection of when does it get better and did my finger just fall off? (I’m pretty sure it didn’t, and it’s already getting better! Can’t you feel it?)


Moving on! As was the case for Fall, this installment is a two-parter (the team is growing, the style is evolving and Amelia just can’t seem to shake her love of stockbroker trousers). This week we’re featuring our editors and writers, peppered over our sales team’s shiniest new member, Shari Brown, resident marketing strategist but also bomb-ass boot-wearer. I’d say more but what’s the point? Have at it, people! Click until your fingers hurt.

We’ll be waiting in the comments.

    Amelia – I lost my Secret Garden locket at age 9 when my dog pulled me down on a particularly icy January walk. I haven’t thought about that in yearrrrrrrs!

    • Amelia Diamond

      I need to watch that movie immediately where do you think it is online??

      • gashgoldvermillion

        Idk – locket is long gone, but you know I still have that double feature DVD with SG and A Little Princess. <3 Sarah Crewe.

        netflix for sure, I subjected my daughter to it this summer about five years too early

  • Andrea Raymer

    Amelia, I welcome you to the pink ribbon club! I have worn one just about every other day since sienna miller at the Golden Globes.

    Office Appropos is my favorite! Fingers crossed Krista is in part two… I still think about that gorgeous vintage dress she wore in the summer!

      Fave compliment I’ve ever received seriously

    • Svenja

      @yourlocaljill:disqus I couldn’t put my finger on it until now, but this is perfect!
      @haley_nahman:disqus You have the talent of making ‘jeans and a sweater’ look stylish and unique and also to dress modern and just the right amount of retro at the same time, I admire that, please keep sharing your outfits for inspiration!

      • Haley Nahman


    • This is THE look of 2017, honestly.

    • onanma okeke

      😂😂 just looked at the pictures. It is actually true. Love it!

  • Yvonne Dunlevie

    Haley is on fire this round ++ Outdoor Voices Fridays are my favorite day of the week.

    Haley making me want to ditch my current ruffle obsession and dress like Where’s Wally crossed with Kevin Bacon in Footloose

      Dream comment

  • mafer!

    Haley and Shari are my style friends, deffffff.

  • Emrita

    Question for Leslie: Does Isabel Marant run big or small? … so close to purchasing a blazer similar to yours (on Sale!).

    • Leslie Price

      I find it runs pretty true, but the shoe sizing can be a bit all over the place.

  • Kendra

    Haley, your Wednesday outfit was everything!!!

  • Natali

    First and last round of your outfits are absolutely amazing!! Great gals with tons of style! 🙂

  • jennifer

    Shari’s Friday outfit = LOVE. That color is regal and the pleated skirt is lovely.
    Miranda’s headshots are ALL adorable.
    Leslie’s hair is so glam. Every. Day.
    Haley looks cute as button like always, but her naked knees on Wednesday cracked me up. They looked like little dumplings!
    Amelia, now I want a locket! Here’s what I found:

    • jennifer

      Ahhh! Total brain fart!! LEANDRA!! I meant LEANDRA! Not Miranda. Sorry, it’s Monday and my brain isn’t on yet!! Please don’t kick me out of the club!

      • Leandra Medine

        Can you only call me Miranda going forward? Please?

        • Haley Nahman

          Pipe down Miranda

    • Haley Nahman

      thank you for this high compliment (dumplings)

  • Haley, I LOVED all your outfits! You look so cozy/relaxed but stylin’ as hell.

  • dietcokehead

    Leandra, I’ve been obsessing over your Tuesday outfit ever since I saw it on some other post … don’t knock it! It’s everything I want to be!

  • hilary

    Haley I am so into your Thursday. My new life goal is to look like that every day

    • Haley Nahman

      Please please do. If you live in New York you should go to 10 Foot Single in williamsburg…….that’s where I got the suede pants! That whole store is basically that Thurs lewk!!!

      • hilary

        oooooh I’ll be visiting in the spring and will definitely stop by there!

      • Jolie

        I got a letterman-type sweater there a few weeks ago and it’s been breathing life into my mid-week look ever since.

      • Olivia

        Discover my new discovery .. amazing blog with cool looks for everyday 🙂

    • Nicole

      S a m e

    • Suzan

      Me too! I gasped a little when I saw that look – such nice warm colours!

  • Lindsey

    Ooohhhhkaaayyy Haley is my spirit animal! She always manages to look cozy and cute and comfortable. Basically, my goal every day. I especially appreciate the “black sheep daughter of a rich family” day. Just…yes. Yes to that whole thing.

    • Haley Nahman

      Ugh I really do want to be that!!

      • Lindsey


  • Caitlin Crow

    Haley, your Friday Steve Zissou vibes are giving me crazy amounts of lyyyyyyfe.

    • Haley Nahman

      I get Steve Zissou comments every time I wear that beanie!!! It’s maybe why I wear it

      • Caitlin Crow

        This either means I am extremely unoriginal and/or part of the cultural zeitgeist surrounding your beanie.

  • Caro A

    Oh my gosh I gasped for Shari on Wednesday. So good. I like you all so much
    * oh my gosh, I continued to gasp. I wrote the first part of my comment before I even finished looking through all the pics.

  • Summer

    Shari’s lipstick game is A+++++++

    • Haley Nahman


  • dk

    Holy hair! Leslie is giving Amelia a run for her money.. You should go horse riding and gif your hair.. Ok, done with the weird now.

  • Christina

    I remember being a 16 year old teen in high school when I first heard of the man repeller, I caught a glimpse of an interview (of Leandra) on a generic TV station (back when I didn’t cable television) and I was sprung on your style, throughout the years I had always kept in mind when styling myself the woman who was fearless in her wardrobe. Now here I am 21 and I have found the man repeller yet again, a safe haven for my unorthodox style.

    P.S. you kill it everyday of the week! Tuesday is my fave!

  • Hannah Cole

    oh Haley girl, I have bookmarked almost every one of those outfits for my own future winter inspiration – never get stuck, ever again

  • Alison Dick


    What is that leather phone pocket (?) you’ve pinned to your jacket on Wednesday? It looks right at home.

  • Lilli

    Leslie’s hair is offensively amazing. Like I’m offended its not mine

    • Haley Nahman

      lolll i agree completely

  • Haley’s hats make winter more exciting

  • Leslie – your hair on Tuesday. In awe. Would die for any and all tips/details on how your hair looks that good (dry bar?a DIY blowout? products?) Perfection!

    • Leslie Price

      You are way too kind. We did a community event at Drybar and I kept that blowout going for as long as I could.

  • Hannah

    haley haley haley you look like you’re about to be featured in an article whose title includes words like “fashion girls” “effortless” and “off-duty” and I am rly jealous teach me your ways

  • Grace B

    Well, now I have to go back to the secondhand boutique and buy some shit cause y’all got me INSPIRED. Also, today I wore my new Eloquii pants (2nd hand) and my TALBOTS gray sweater set and I think I’ve found my new look.

  • sleepyolive

    Haley your jean collection tho 🔥 I strive to serve a plethora of denim ensembles in the near future

  • Suzy

    Slide #32, Leslie, it looks like your blue jeans bleed to the ground! Lolol. Awesome outfits~

  • b.e.g.

    Sometimes I wish I could zoom in to get a closer look at your stuff. Like Leandra’s Celine brogues Tuesday. Awesome brogues Shari Friday, thanks for the close-up.

  • Shari’s first apropos! This is my favourite feature so I feel like it’s your initiation haha 🙂

  • Amy Brumbpo Tungus

    #32 – definitely thought Leslie’s jeans were flaring into a mermaid tail that went 6 inches past her feet because of that deceptive blue paint on the ground. Was curious as to whether she had to hop everywhere or just opted for crutches, cos, uknow, fashion.

  • Sincerely, wish I had a job, where I could dress the way I want. I’m here for Shari’s outfit, looks so comfortable.

  • Julie B.

    Shari on Friday <3 <3 <3

  • Senka

    Haley slayed every single day!

  • ellie

    Oooooh I’m really truly appreciating Shari’s vibes in this, I love every outfit and that pink lip is so fantastic!!! Also Haley’s wednesday outfit is my ideal sunday outfit those jeans are PERFECT

  • Clara

    Amelia is not getting enought credit for her outfit numero uno! Also her hair and boob shirt.

    • Amelia’s hair has more life and body than the entire planet together.

      • Clara

        I wish my hair looked half as good half of the time

        • Amelia Diamond

          If I could marry all of you at once I would

          • M Rae

            omg the secret garden VHS locket…I still have it somewhere, but soo dingy and no chain. theres an 80s pic of mom and dad on one side (I intentionally put a big scratch thru dads face when I was ANGRY once though..yikes) and little baby-face bro and sis on the other side. ugh I need it in my grubby hands, now!

  • lychette

    My goodness, that Chanel jacket though. Leandra, I love your Khaite jumpsuit and have been eyeing it for a while on The Line’s website. At 595 dollars it is certainly an investment, but as we don’t have it in Europe, I don’t have the chance to feel the material. Would appreciate your review 🙂

  • ashley

    leslies hair!! so lush

  • Inaat

    Love this! Could you do a piece on where to stay (hotels, areas), what to do etc, for us non New Yorkers that want to visit the city man repeller style?

  • Doxie Dogs

    Best of the Week votes?: Shari: Friday. Save that outfit for when you want to look totally gorgeous! Haley: Thursday. It’s polished perfection. A hard call between this and the beanie days. You look great in beanies and not everyone does. Amelia: Tuesday. You look amazing in those jeans and turtleneck. Leslie: Tuesday. You are rocking casual chic here. Leandra: Tuesday. what don’t you know about looking cool? Love it.

  • cambridge_liz

    hey @haley_nahman:disqus, love your tuesday look. can you enlighten me – do those Babaton Cohen pants run big / small / goldilocks? I’m ordering myself a pair (whoops!) and am between sizes. thank you!!

  • Christelle


  • Kimberly

    Sorry to say but you all look homeless? Or is it just really trendie?

  • Michela Galante

    @haley_nahman:disqus obsessed with the Thursday outfit!

  • Rosie

    If anyone, ever, EVER, sees a jacket like the one in photo 27, please tell me, I have been looking for a jacket like that (slouchy, silky, with a really nice print pattern) for months! Meanwhile my search continues…

  • Leslie Hitchcock

    Shari is slaying the Office Apropos game!

  • Fran

    I love seeing how you all dress for work. I think that Shari and Haley (and Leandra, always Leandra!) knocked it out of the park this week. I wish I had Leandra’s scarf wardrobe.

  • Kelly’s Gross-o

    The Secret Garden Locket!!! I’ve never recovered from the loss of mine either!!

  • Elif Nimet

    @disqus_I4oUDNFdjF:disqus I have SERIOUS hair envy.

  • Zoe Harewood

    Sweaty minge Monday. Just what volume of itchy fabric re suspender trews does fashion expect one to fit between one’s legs?
