What I Wear to Work: Meredith Fineman Likes the Lady Tuxedo
Also high heels, Equipment blouses, and finds scored from discount racks.

Who: Meredith Fineman, 25
CEO of FinePoint Digital PR; freelance writer and founder/editor of TheFFJD and Girls Aren’t Funny

What she does: I wear lots of different hats, and by hats I mean bracelets and heels. I founded my digital PR company, FinePoint, to marry my marketing background with my interests in social and digital media. I’m also a freelance writer for a ton of different outlets, as well as the founder of two sites of my own. On a daily basis, I do everything from social media maintenance to new business proposals to pitching bloggers. When I take a break from FinePoint, it’s usually to write or eat Chopt. I love having my own business, so that’s definitely a perk. My boss loves me! But sometimes she also hates how much toner I use in the copier.

Describe your work style: The industry I’m in lets me wear pretty much whatever I want, and I do just that. My professional style is colorful and somewhat whimsical. I love the combination of business on top (blazers, silk blouses) and party on the bottom (Converse, great denim).

Nighttime Party

This is my lady tuxedo. I bought these Stella McCartney pants on clearance three years ago from Filene’s Basement, when I thought they made me look like a lion tamer. Now they’re cool.

Giuseppe Zanotti heels from Ella Rue, vintage blouse and clutch, and bracelets by Herm├Ęs and Ippolita.

Typical Day at the Office

I am the Mr. Rogers of Equipment blouses. I love them. This printed one is from Nordstrom Rack—sometimes I get lucky and find them there.

Skirt from Barney’s outlet in Leesburg and shoes from Necessary Clothing.

Networking

I love heels. High, high heels. They make me feel tall and important. These are YSL—I can walk in them for about an hour and a half before I cry and return to Havaianas. I go out at night to lots of events, and this outfit is usually my go-to. I’m definitely a separates person.

    If a lady wears a tuxedo just like that will look good for them that will depends if they are good posture or not or something like that. That would really be of big help for them too.

    Thanks,

    I am a huge fan of Meredith for reasons not to be discussed in this forum. You have a style all your own which I personally love and you look stunning! Lurker
