What do these two stylish ladies have in common? They work in the Ellicott Square Building and shop at Sarah Danielle Clothing, located in the main lobby of this grand office building. SDC is a new ladies apparel and accessories store that carries dresses, tops, along with day and night pieces. All of these ladies that I found shopping at SDC (see below) are of different professions, have their own sense of style and have one thing in common - they are all able to find their own look at this one location, centrally located in the heart of downtown Buffalo.
The ladies we have included in this story are: Kathy, Co-owner of Ellicott Square Chiropractic with her husband Dr.Neil Pignatora where she specializes in Reflexology and Holistic Wellness. Kathy also teaches the Zumba classes which take place in the Ellicott Square building during the week. Her first outfit is a black and white twist front Cruise Gown with jewelry by Kathy Girl.
Next we have, LaTunya - who is a counselor in the Ellicott Square Building. She is considered the building's most eligible bachelorette and is accepting resumes so she can put these outfits into action. Her first outfit is a Chyna Doll high Collar fitted royal blue dress with attached sleeves, accented by drop earrings.
Third, we have, Paulette, a longtime administrator for Ellicott Development. Her first outfit is a melon green chiffon blouse accented by oak & black trim. Worn with a floor length adjustable skirt by T Party. She is wearing a reflective glass bracelet in a complimenting vibrant green tone.
Fourth, we have Leah, Maintenance Coordinator For Ellicott Development, her first outfit is a black tiered racerback ruffle top with an eco silk mini skirt by Amour Vert.
And fith, we have Leanna, an Attorney for Ellicott Development, her first outfit is a modern day Wonder Woman mini dress by Body Language.
On a side note, Sarah Danielle's is not your typical women's fashion store. Nothing is priced over $100 and everything is made in the U.S.A of high quality and easy to care for which may be why many of the boutique's customers keep coming back. The previous store and its owner which shares the name, Destination by Lee Powers
, had to retire from this location due to family commitments, but is still doing the buying here. Current manager, Mellisa Neil has over a decade of retail and customer service experience and enjoys assisting fellow downtowners with their fashion needs. Her goal is to make every customer's purchase experience enjoyable and time efficient.
Now that you know you can find an evening dress here, how about some day wear?
In order we have, Paulette, who is wearing a vibrant printed turquioise and mustard top, accented by tied waistband. Smart khaki capris, yellow reptile print vegan leather purse with a muted gold & turquoise cuff.
Next we have Kathy who is wearing a bohemian embroidered tank with adjustable length skirt and for an accessory a poppy vegan leather adjustable purse.
Third, LaTunya, who is rockin' a six way exotic print dress by Body Language. This piece can be worn in a variety of styles including 'with sleeves', 'without sleeves', strapless, short length and skirt. One of the many popular pieces from the cruise wear collections.
Fourth, Leanna, wearing a vibrant yellow & periwinkle border print top with white blank denim spray-on skinny jeans.
And finally we have, Leah, styling in a bell sleeve yellow paisley dress with backtie, a vegan leather mustard slouch bag and to top it off, a 70s inspired Jadeite oval Necklace.
In honor of the working downtown woman Sarah Danielle Clothing is offering a variety of specials. They are eager to have you visit their showroom, browse, try on and hopefully become a happy, fashionable & fabulous customer!
