Boardroom Belles is a style & advice blog for career gals
Boardroom Belles was founded in 2012 by two young finance professionals, living and working away in the Big Apple. In various columns, Parker & Posey strive to shed light and a transatlantic perspective on the working gal’s most common conundrums: How do I dress creatively in a corporate setting? How do I tell my boss I can’t work yet another long weekend? How the heck do I eat oysters with some sort of grace?
Posey hails from the South and is our etiquette aficionado – because unlike Parker she does have manners. Frail and dainty Southern Belle that she is, she enjoys all those hobbies any 8-year old boy might enjoy and can swear like a truck driver, though she generally keeps it outside the office. Besides her passion for her family, friends and work, she has developed an unhealthy obsession with all things blue and coral and reads an indecent amount of blogs on a daily basis.
Parker sailed over from the Old Continent and is our media enthusiast – because unlike Posey, she gets excited over the Tech Oscars and unshowered indie bands. Strong-jawed European that she is, she cultivates a glass-half-empty kind of sarcasm and is prone to creative cursing in her passwords. Besides her love for early conference calls and time spent with her nearest & dearest, she detests coral and organizes her life in an obscene number of spreadsheets.
Parker & Posey met in the workplace and instantly bonded over their shared love of office fashion, bad serial literature and test prep. Often exchanging helpless glances at some of the outfit choices they encountered on the street and in the office, they decided to write a blog about how it is done – or at least how they would do it, if they could run the world. Which they are sure is someday soon.
