Founders

LINDSAY: Originally, Lindsay moved to New York City to pursue an education for a career that has tragically fallen from grace: The Magazine Editor.  She spent her NYU years interning and working for magazines and trend forecasting companies, and considering the current state of old-fashioned glossy magazines, none of it went to waste!  Thankfully, the upside of all this e-zine hype is that fashionistas can publish themselves!  She has a strong affinity for lingerie, dogs and coffee, and hates poor elevator manners. When she’s not cite checking, Bates-numbering or freelancing, Lindsay plays acoustic guitar, creates abstract 2-dimensional art and bakes cupcakes in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.

MEREDITH: This Mainer was destined to be an NYC urbanite ever since the day her 4-year-old eyes glimpsed the awe-inspiring offices towers of downtown Manhattan from her perch in the back seat of her parents’ Buick.  Today, after studying le French at Smith College, she lives and works in New York City and can call one of those buildings her very own office.  Between the contract review and trips to the courthouse, Meredith can be found scouring the Manhattan streets for her next free furniture find, preparing a mighty tasty mac n’ cheese or giving hugs to puppies she wishes were hers in Central Park.  Meredith comes to you from her broker-deemed “quaint” East Village apartment (honestly, it turned out to be quite adorable!).

OUR PROJECT: One afternoon during another of our daily discussions of work attire and the triumphs and tribulations of compiling a corporate closet, we realized that our fashion challenges and interests were not well represented in the blogging community.  There needed to be a space for young professionals who look to dress for the corporate world with a touch of creativity and flair, while also being (largely!) wallet-friendly.  Thus, Cubicle Chic was born!  We hope to promote originality and resourcefulness not only for dressing in the workplace, but for weekend adventures as well.

    So Meredith… your mom forwarded this around the office to the younger set! (She’s really proud)… Though Portland, Maine isn’t quite as fashion forward as Manhattan this is fantastic and completely transferable… I look forward to your help in taking the mystery out of such issues as “casual Friday” and “office holiday party”. Best of luck!

  4. Meredith, Your father forwarded your blog site to his choir mates and I had to check it out. I was a single working girl in NYC for 17 years and loved it. It is illuminating to view your current fashion statements, since I now consider myself an out-of-touch oldster up here in Maine. Interestingly, the basics are still the same–which is good. Love the shots of Grand Central–brings back fond memories. Keep up the good work.

    • Thanks, Harriet! It’s wonderful to hear that the photos brought back good memories. Grand Central is one of the best places in the city. Hope that the singing is going well and that we hear from you again!

    Meredith!
    You are just about the coolest chic in Manhattan – I can say that because Meg’s the coolest chic in Brooklyn!! I love the blog and wish I was 25 years younger so I could wear all the styles!

    Good luck to you and Lindsay!
    love,
    Sandy

  12. Hi there-

    I just wanted to congratulate both of you on a wonderful blog! I love the content and you are writing on one of my favorite topics- fashion! 🙂 I actually found out about this blog via the Smith College E-News letter that just came out today. I am a fellow Smithie Meredith! I make vintage inspired jewelry and would love for you to take a look at my website- http://www.lanyapi.etsy.com. Let me know if you would ever like to feature any of my items as I am in New York often. Actually I will be there this weekend visiting another Smithie!

    Congrats again and have a great day!
