A Brand New
There’s no place like home
As we approach our 3-Year Anniversary, we look towards the horizon with bubbly and some killer shades. The present and the future look bright my friends. Check out what’s up:
It gives me great pleasure to fling our doors open with this house-warming message celebrating our brand new website. And to welcome you inside the home we've built for us all to get VERTICAL more often. Building a home is a special experience. It takes time and a great deal of thought to make that home a place you will love, and hope others will love to visit.

Have A Slice
Starting this summer, VERTICAL Tampa Bay "slice" editions are hitting the streets! (insert clinking pink Champagne flutes). These glossy, abridged versions of VERTICAL will be printed and distributed by Creative Loafing.
Our readers have never been shy about their desire to "touch" VERTICAL. To "hold it." To "hang it on their walls as artwork." Our new relationship with Creative Loafing enables that wish to come true.
I can't wait to get my hands on a copy.
Spreading The Love
I've also been invited by Creative Loafing to be part of their editorial team, contributing a regular column on style that will provide a Leslie Joy Original view of Tampa Bay's fashion scene. I can’t wait to get down with the Creative Loafing crowd.
As the story of VERTICAL unfolds, we invite you to join us on a journey rich with possibilities. Get VERTICAL...and be part of something fabulous!
