When I started this blog in May 2011, I was so consumed with how it “looked” and what I was going to post, I did not focus on the fact that you might be interested in who I am. Amazingly enough, the “page hits” show me that a lot of you click to see more “About Me.”
Who is Ridgely? I am all of these… daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend and worker bee. I grew up in New York City and, for as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a fashion designer. Well, if not be a designer, I wanted to work in fashion. Several of my summers were devoted to either art and/or fashion: I went to Rhode Island School of Design, studied at Parson’s in Paris, and interned for Bill Blass. After graduating from Tulane University, I worked in the advertising department of Calvin Klein , went on to the fashion department of Harper’s Bazaar and started, Croft Public Relations, with a great friend. We then joined Paul Wilmot and founded Paul Wilmot Communications, where I am still working today! I have followed my dreams, worked very hard to make them a reality and have had so many amazing adventures along the way. I love my day job and am excited every day to be a part of building amazing brands. Today a critical part of building brands is through Social Media. I joined Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, started following blogs, and realized that I wanted to be a blogger! I enjoy sharing ideas, great finds, books, recipes and anything that speaks to me! I totally jumped in with both feet and have not looked back once. I am hooked!
When I am not commuting, working or blogging, I am at home in Connecticut with my husband, two sons, two dogs and a cat… all boys and me!
