WHAT I WORE: tip to toe! A personal style blog based in the Nation's Capital told from the perspective of a 3rd generation native Washingtonian.
Hi! I'm Brea Ellis and I'm originally from Washington, DC where my entire family still lives. In 2008 while living in San Francisco, CA I took a job at a start-up and for the first time in my career I was free to wear whatever I wanted to work.
I emailed my mom a photo of my first-day-of-work outfit, but because she wasn't all that tech saavy she didn't know how to open the attachment! Day after day I'd send her photos of my fun work outfits and she would get frustrated not being able to view them.
Finally I told her...I'll post them online in a blog...and that's how I started my first blog "HOW WAS YOUR DAY?"
Over the years WHAT I WORE: tip to toe! has become a resource for working women looking for help answering the age old question...WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
This site features outfit posts, event recaps and has been featured in the Style section of both the Washington Post and New York Times.
For business inquires email me at theEsocialite@gmail.com and make sure to follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
WHAT KIND OF CAMERA DO YOU USE? I use the Sony NEX-3N
WHO TAKES YOUR PHOTOS?
I do! I put my camera on automatic timer, balance it on something at near eye-level, then run and pose before the photos snaps. It's hilarious to watch! I've recently started working with professional photographers; my favorite so far is Hart Speax.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BLOGGING? I started blogging in 2008 on Tumblr. My first blog was http://howwasyourday.tumblr.com/ I posted photos on Tumblr of What I Wore for an entire year before switching to blogger in 2010.
