As we’re settling into week two of learning how to re-live our lives from home, we’re getting a pretty good idea of what it takes to successfully move through the day.

We’re taking to Zoom for conference calls, getting in touch with family, convening for book club and even for hanging out with our friends. It feels great to see others and be seen!

Indoor lighting and unforgiving camera angles are enough to kill the air of professionalism, as well as amplify shadows. We’re here to guide you on a work from home/play from home wardrobe that will combat the perils of less-than-great lighting and help you express yourself with your best foot forward!
