They say the secret to success is sincerity, and no one encapsulates that sentiment more than Atlanta-based blogger Anna Liesemeyer. When this graphic designer turned lifestyle guru isn’t curating her swoon-worthy blog, In Honor Of Design, she’s spearheading The Brand Market, her entrepreneurial initiative to guide future business owners to success. Between building her stylish brand and being Mother Of The Year to four little ones, this modern-day superwoman injects passion and creativity into all aspects of her life, and needs a wardrobe to mirror the confidence she exudes. We teamed up with dressbarn to outfit Anna in some of the brand’s newest fall frocks to serve up a major dose of seasonal inspiration, and to show how the right dress can #labelmeconfident and get you through anything a busy day throws at you.

“A fit and flare dress is both comfortable and fun to wear (the skirt swings!) and layer. A neutral-toned patterned makes it easy to swap jackets in and out, and works really well for both business casual and everyday attire. A pair of black heels and a trench coat was my Saturday morning look for a little coffee and curb-side reading.”

“Sometimes you need an effortless dress you can grab from your closet without thinking what to put together. This dress is savvy on it's own - no layering required! I put on a pair of my favorite booties and a big hat to run errands for the day.”

“I love dresses that are little edgy and fuss-free. The soft sweater material is form fitting and doesn't wrinkle, so it is a perfect option for travel and all-day wear. I paired it with a leather moto jacket to compliment the lace and checked pattern. Swap out the heels for tennis shoes for a sportier, casual look.”

“Marsala is my color choice of the season. This ultra feminine and form-fitting cut was begging to be pulled out for date night. With a bold jewel tone, you can go easy on the color compliments, such as a long vest, nude heels and a monochromatic tote.”
