Good morning, Ladies.
In 2008, I was working as a staff assistant in a Capitol Hill office–giving tours, answering phones, eating PB&J, and too poor to take an August vacation. To fill the empty hours, I decided to start a fashion blog. Because my work and my life was deeply entrenched in Capitol Hill, I called my blog Capitol Hill Style.
Eight years later, my career has changed, my address has changed, and the readership of this blog has swelled far beyond the Beltway. So I decided it was time for a change; welcome to The Work Edit.
Since its inception, my driving focus has been to provide professional women with a fashion blog that doesn’t pretend that the boardroom and the catwalk have anything in common. A place where suits with shorts and six-inch heels don’t masquerade as work attire. And where words like “cardigan,” “Ann Taylor,” and “nylons” aren’t whispered in hushed tones.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be launching new features and bringing back some old ones. There will be more posts focused on career. These will include a new series profiling successful women in a variety of fields and at different stages in their professional journey. But despite the new name and the renewed focus, regular readers won’t notice a huge difference in content. This site will continue to be a place that understands what it means to dress for success while living a real life.
Without such an amazing group of readers, I would have stopped blogging long ago. Thanks to you, this blog is still the best part of my day. And I cannot wait for you to share in its next chapter.
