“I loved this dress because it felt both modern and vintage at the same time. I think that vintage shopping, in general, is a really great way to incorporate old and new to a modern lifestyle. Especially for weddings, I love things that have a bit of jewel or sparkle to them.”—Leesa Evans, costume designer

“Violet finds things to give herself this collegiate, but more professional graduate student/assistant professor sort of look. I think it’s important to feel the confidence and dress the part of whatever position you may be moving into. She also wears a lot of nicely fitted A-line skirts; I like an A-line that hits right to the knee.”—Leesa Evans, costume designer

“I loved pairing the two stripes together; I always feel like stripes are really fresh, and have a sense of Spring. I loved the Frye boots, too, because they’re substantial enough to wear in weather, but sexy enough to wear in fashion.”—Leesa Evans, costume designer
