Around the Office



CMI, the parent company of the Flyer and Style Sessions, isn't quite known for its fashion.

It's not its fault; journalists, with the exception of the Elsa Klenschs and the Anna Wintours of the world, have never been known for their sense of style.

The term "ink-stained wretch" comes to mind, and if you're going to be ink-stained, you're not going to want to wear anything that you don't want ruined.

Luckily for Hannah Sayle, Memphis magazine's and MBQ's newest addition, we're not having to run the printing press ourselves anymore. (My clothes are better for it, but I do miss how it gave me great guns.)


In all seriousness, Hannah and I have bonded over a shared love of Rue La La, a website with limited engagement, designer sales, and Gilt Fuse, a website that sells clothes from emerging brands.

Here Hannah is wearing a Robert Rodriguez dress with a slip and sheer overlay, which I *think* she might have gotten from one of these sites. (I would call her and ask, but then we'd probably start talking about something else and this entry would never get posted.)

"I’m a big fan of A-line skirts because they draw attention to my waist," she says. "I paired it with an old pair of high-heeled boots from Banana Republic -- because even though high heels make me look like a giantess, I like the slimming effect. The necklace is a twisted copper ring from Urban Outfitters."

Very good, Hannah. Now get back to work and stop reading the interwebs. The rest of you, feel free to stay and hang out a while.
