Derek Lam has been one of my favorite designers for a while now. All of Derek Lamโ€™s pieces are classic in their shape, style, and color. They are made to last a lifetime. Derek Lam creates luxury products with a modern sensibility, known for their calculated simplistic and thoughtful detailing. Derek Lam was founded in New York City, in 2003, and Derek Lam 10 Crosby was launched in 2011.  10 Crosby was launched as a less high end version of the original Derek Lam line, and I have to say I love it even more than the original!
            Derek Lam has a specialized niche in creating 2-In-1 items of clothing. This is genius because you are essential getting two clothing items for the price of one! โ€ฆ WHAT COULD BE BETTER!? I find his 2-In-1 items so attractive and versatile, so when I laid my eyes on the dress above I immediately grabbed it! This dress doubles as a spaghetti strap slip dress and a button up blouse! I wore them together above to show a more office to drinks vibe.

The Celine Trapeze bag shown above is not a new style at all, but it will always be a classic! Itโ€™s big enough to bring to work with your laptop in it and cute to wear right out of the office! I personally bought this Celine Trapeze on eBay. I'm a huge advocate of buying gently loved designer bags because they are a half the price, and just as amazing!  

Would love to hear about other 2-In-1 brands you bug over?
