Meet Mary Orton.
Successful investment banker turned professional fashion blogger and, now, style app developer.
In the middle of her move back to New York City from San Francisco to grow her entrepreneurial business, Corporate Fashionista caught up with Orton to find out why she and her husband, Rich Scudellari, founded Trove, how the mobile app works and what they hope to accomplish, plus her approach to career style.
One of my favorite things about summertime is the opportunity to simplify my style.
It’s no secret; dressing for success at the office during the summer months has its challenges, no matter if you work in a conservative, creative, or casual environment.
That’s why I’m always on the lookout for easy inspiration. You too?!
All of the looks below spotlight effortless & engaging work-friendly, summer styles that are easy to replicate, leaving us more time and energy to enjoy the season to its fullest. Relax and Enjoy!
We’re switching things up in CF’s The Boardroom this week to highlight breaking news & updates on designers & founders I’ve exclusively interviewed for FORBES. All are on a mission to support career women.
- Ringly, a leader in the wearable tech space, recently, announced an expansion to its product line to now include ‘smart’ bracelets. Fusing fashion and function for women continues to be at the forefront for the growing company. “It is our belief that your jewelry should not only be beautiful, but also smart,” says Ringly Founder & CEO Christina Mercando d’Avignon. Discover elegant designs integrated with the same high-tech features as Ringly rings, so you can keep discreetly updated on incoming phone calls, messages, emails, and 100+ apps while on-the-go. The new Aries bracelets also have a convenient, built-in step-tracking feature. Four different bracelet styles ($195) crafted with hand-cut, semi-precious gemstones are available for pre-order now and are expected to ship in late July.
- Remember when the Obama’s hosted a State Dinner for new Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a short time ago – the visit marks the first official state visit from a CPM in nearly 20 years? Well, Zvelle shoe designer Elle Ayoubzadeh had the opportunity to create custom shoes for Canada’s First Lady Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau for the event seen here and here. “It was a big honour for us to be asked,” says Canadian-based Ayoubzadeh. Zvelle’s dedication and commitment to provide stylish, comfortable career women’s shoes at accessible prices are paying off globally. Certainly an exciting moment for a fashion startup (or any brand for that matter)!
