Her job: Dixie Peeples, 35, is a designer and buyer at Kay Douglass Interiors/South of Market.
Her outfit here: “I like bright, contrasting colors—yellow shoes stand out more than, say, black. But I tend to wear chunky heels; I have to climb ladders!”
Her work-trip packing tip: “I travel a lot as a buyer for the stores. I choose a ‘color story,’ like denim and camel, and pack only those colors.”

Her job: Helen Harbin Davis, 30, has her own interior design firm, H&H Home.
Her outfit here: “I’m obsessed with this print pencil skirt— plus it makes going from day to night easy. People are paying for my eye and taste, so it’s important that I’m on trend but still in line with my general aesthetic for interior design.”
Her go-to: “I feel the most confident in heels because I’m not very tall—5’3″. They give me that extra pep in my step.”
