#HowTheyDoDapper: Desirée Duncan

by Priya Pappu |

Des wears the Pavlov kerchief.

Everyone, meet Desirée! We connected with Des through Instagram, and we're so glad we did. What jumped out to us immediately upon meeting her was how Desirée embodies one of our C+L mottoes, Live Your Best Life. It's clear to us that Des is doing just that - from traveling across the country to work remotely in 2021, to accenting an outfit with bold matching accessories. These pictures look to us like someone that is looking AND feeling good. And we're here for that!  

 Read on to get to know our new friend, Desirée! 


Name, pronouns: Desirée, she/her

Find them looking dapper in: Nashville, TN 

Tell us a little bit about the story you're writing in your Clifton+Leopold: 

I'm a Nashville Native and love my city. I traveled the entire country working remotely for all of 2021, but there's nothing like being back home.

Complete this sentence: I love the C + L ___________ because _________: 

I love the C + L brand as a whole because it's the accessories that set an outfit off, and these elegant pieces are THE statement piece of any outfit.

What is currently atop your C + L wishlist? 
I'm a person who once I find something I like, I buy it in every color I can reasonably get my hands on. With that said, I want every C + L kerchief in every color. 

It's a Saturday! What are you doing?

I'm starting the day by getting a solid workout at the gym. And if it's a gorgeous afternoon, I'm heading out the door with my camera to capture some shots of historic Nashville. And by night, I'm all dappered up and ready to roam the Wedgewood-Houston First Saturday Art Crawl, where I stop into various local spots for cocktails and nosh along the way. Then I end my night on the East side for my favorite dance party in town - Funky Good Time at 5 Spot.

It's quitting time on any given day. What are you sipping on? Uncle Nearest 1884

A dance party is not complete without (song or artist): Sylvester

Tell us, what makes you feel dapper?

A nice warm and spicy cologne. I could be in sweats and as long as I've got one of my favorite colognes on, I feel dapper.

Where can we find you on the internet?
