Inspired as a young girl by her grandmother's chic aesthetic, Jessie Randall first stepped into the world of shoe design as a student at Parsons and FIT. She honed her skills working for the likes of designer Katayone Adeli and the Gap before deciding to venture out on her own and creating the kind of footwear she wanted to wear but could not find: well-made shoes that were understated yet undeniably feminine. Loeffler Randall's mix of downtown cool and refined elegance was an instant success with its fall 2005 launch, winning Jessie the CFDA Swarovski Award for Accessory Design shortly after, in June 2007 and priming the equally successful launch of her ready-to-wear collection for fall/winter 2007.
Work-appropriate ensembles don’t have to be stuffy, as evidenced by the chic pieces in our array of office-ready picks. Go for shrunken blazers, silk shorts, and slingback pumps, all of which toe the line between dutifully professional and distinctly fashion-forward—a winning combination if ever there was one.
Spot a piece that has your name on it? Snag it before it's too late—each item in this assortment is the only one left of its kind. Check back throughout the day for new styles, from versatile accessories perfect for the workday to dresses and layer-friendly separates you'll live in all season long.
Gutsy but not over-the-top, these pieces beckon to style-setters who enjoy ramping up their everyday. Several jumpers make brilliant use of animal prints, but do so in unexpected ways. Choose from one printed with liquid-gold scales and a kimono coat-and-shorts combo, done up in leopard. The drapey and drop-waist separates entice as well, plus several slashed looks and color-blocked numbers play gorgeously with pattern and proportion.
When are stripes not on-trend? The perennially favored pattern is this sale's <i>raison d'etre</i>, and appears in diverse forms throughout our cute array: Delicate pin-stripes adorn a bustier dress, a single thick stripe spans an adorable pair of tap pants, and maritime-inspired, ever-so-French tees and dresses prove once again why the classics never go out of style.
