So Money with Farnoosh Torabi

As the saying goes: "Dress for the job you want, not the one you have.”But, ok. What if you can’t exactly wear Prada to work each day? And the affordable options just don’t fit right or are made of lousy materials?That’s where today's guests enter. Dorie Smith and Emelyn Northway are the co-founders of Of Mercer, career wear for the modern professional woman.They met one fateful day while both attending business school at the University of Pennsylvania. They spotted each other across a crowded room because – guess what? They were wearing identical outfits.They initially launched the brand back in 2013 as an ecommerce site. The company has received praise from top media outlets including The New York Times, Forbes and Inc. Magazine.

And how to know when pairing up with a business partner makes sense?For more information visit www.somoneypodcast.com. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
