About me

Gender Female
Location Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
Introduction The Tailored Woman is a Philadelphia-based writer whose interests include travel, dining out, classic cocktails, vintage-inspired fashions, monkeys and books. She is the great-great grandniece of the founder of the Tailored Woman, the longtime New York women's specialty store known for "good style, good lines, good quality and quiet colors." Elizabeth is currently researching and writing a humorous family memoir called The Speedwell Society: How We Missed The Mayflower, Jesse James and $70 Million. (Sadly, all of those things really did--or rather, didn't--happen to her family.) Contact me: Elizabeth at thetailoredwoman dot com
