When I first met Anh of 9to5chic.com, I thought “Wow, I really want her skirt, shoes…and entire wardrobe.” She was easily one of the most stylish women I had ever met with the sweetest personality to match. Since becoming a finalist of Full Time Fabulous last year, she’s gone on to appear in everything from Harper’s Bazaar to Refinery 29. But regardless of being one of the stylish bloggers on the web, she still loves a good vintage find and absolutely adores her puppies.
For those who don’t know, tell everyone what’s the concept and inspiration behind 9to5chic.com?
9to5Chic is my way of expressing personal style at work while still dressing within the standards/expectations of my industry (medical device marketing). I also document my fun weekend outfits too.
We were both finalists for Sunglass Hut’s Full Time Fabulous. How has your blogging experience changed since then?
I had so much fun with you in New York with Full Time Fabulous! Blogging has become an even bigger part of my life since that experience. For the first time, blogging felt like a job during Full Time Fabulous – and I found that I still loved it regardless!

You always have incredible accessories and bags! What fall accessories do you have your eye on this season?
I’m going crazy over glitter and metallics. I wouldn’t mind a pair of Miu Miu glitter booties or Alexander Wang silver cape heels!
So if we were to dump out your makeup bag what items would we find in it?
I’m a huge fan of Bobbi Brown (foundation, loose powder, blush), Chanel (eyeshadow), YSL Touche Eclat and Benefit’s Magic Ink eyeliner. I pick up my lipstick and mascara at the drug store.

What are the 3 most coveted pieces in your closet?
A vintage suede and fur jacket (from my mom’s closet), a classic Burberry trench coat gifted by my husband and a pair of Balenciaga leather leggings I bought as a present to myself ;)
You’ve proven that the career girl can be corporate and chic. What’s the best way to transition from work to play if you don’t have much time?
Once you’re off the clock, turn in the work-appropriate pumps for a killer pair of heels. That’s the best way to start happy hour!

Here on Mattieologie the motto is “live what you love”. How do you live what you love?
Great motto! I live what I love by making sure my puppies are a part of it, every step of the way. They are truly the happiest creatures and bring me so much joy!
