Vera Unveiled





Memorial Day marks the official start of Summer, and we couldn’t be more excited here in the office. For us, Summer is all about the Road Trip, which tends to lead one down a pretty interesting path musically speaking, with new classics and old favorites in the mix. We compiled a list of our favorite “Windows down, Music up!” tracks from past and present, to kick off your long weekend. See the Gang’s choices below, and be sure to follow the playlist and Vera Wang Gang on Spotify for more specially curated playlists.
