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.
