Kat Griffin is the founder, publisher, and editor-in-chief of Corporette. She had to learn fashion truths the hard way: by showing up to her conservative Wall Street office in outfits that seemed perfectly fashionable and normal when she left the house, only to realize upon arrival to the office that they were either horribly frumpy or incredibly inappropriate. She cursed the magazine editors who told her that work-appropriate wear consisted of mini-skirts and gladiator sandals, and wondered why no one wrote about beautiful suits. In May 2008, she finally decided to take matters into her own hands and start Corporette while working as a litigator; the blog became her full-time job in 2011.
Corporette offers fashion, lifestyle, and career advice for lawyers, bankers, MBAs, consultants, and otherwise overachieving chicks who work in conservative offices.
