How People REALLY Dress When They Work From Home

Working from home is a mixed blessing. Sure, it cuts time spent on commuting and money spent on coffee purchases, but sometimes, 4 p.m. rolls around and you’re still unshowered, sitting in sweats and slippers. We speak from experience. 

It was this notion that inspired photographer Sarah Deragon’s photo series Work From Home, which documents what some of the Bay Area's most creative female entrepreneurs wear when they don’t have to shuffle into an office. The results? Well, let’s just say you won’t find any pencil skirts or heels here — in fact, some of these women might not feel comfortable answering the door.

Ahead, Deragon gives us the lowdown on these rad ladies, and even reveals what she wears when she's working from home. Spoiler alert: She's a big fan of robes.
