Name: Cori Sue Morris, 26
Communications manager at an Arlington nonprofit, cofounder of Bitches Who Brunch
What she does: By day, I’m the one-woman communications department for my company. I write and disseminate the weekly and monthly newsletters, press releases, blog posts, and social media feeds. I also handle marketing and cross-promotion. By night/weekend, I’m the HBIC (Head Bitch in Charge), along with my partner, Becca, at Bitches Who Brunch, one of DC’s top lifestyle websites. We’ve reviewed more than 200 restaurant brunches since our inception in March 2010, and also cover events and fashion—hence the need for plenty of work-to-play ensembles.
Describe your work style: My professional style is like my personality—feminine, tailored, and bright. I’m a true type-A personality, and my style is also is also very matchy, thought-out, and put-together. I love bright colors, pink, nautical inspiration, belts, and bracelets—gotta have a good arm party.
