Nora Gardner Collection for Modern Working Women


Today, I am very excited to introduce to you a new-to-me brand dedicated to modern working women. Frustrated by lack of office styles and work wear options for the corporate world, Nora Gardner (a former Wall Streeter) said goodbye to her professional career and founded her own clothing company. Her collection is full of feminine, elegant and timeless pieces. As someone who love classics, I appreciate the minimalist approach. This particular dress is extremely well made and I feel like a million bucks wearing it. I am not a fan of pink in general but this blush pink dress certainly adds a fresh vibe to my Spring wardrobe.


What I am wearing:
Dress: Nora Gardner Alyssa dress - size 00
Shoes: Banana Republic *old* (similar options here)
Sunglasses: Zero UV


I am wearing a size 00 here and the fit is true to size compared to most brands. The top half of the dress fit me perfect. However, the hip area was a little roomy. I did take it to my seamstress to take in approximately 2" on each side. The dress features an invisible back zipper and fully lined. As an added bonus, it is machine washable. Measurements for a size 00 are as follow: shoulder-to-shoulder = 14", overall length = 37", waist = 12". Material contains 72% polyester, 24% rayon, 4% spandex. Every single piece from the collection is proudly made in New York City.


I appreciate the quality of the fabric, the timeless cut and the simplicity of the dress. It hugs in all of the right places and the band above the waist really helps to accent my waist. A sheath dress is a classic staple that should be in every professional women's wardrobe. This dress is available in 6 colors from the classic black and navy to seasonal colors like blush pink and turquoise. Available sizes 00 - 16, there certainly is something for every figure. Nora has generously offered 10% off any order from now through July 1. Just enter code "SydneysFashionDiary10" at check out to take advantage of the discount.
