IBJ Style columnist

List researcher

The word “couture” had never graced the pages of the IBJ until Gabrielle came aboard in September 2007, after completing her bachelor’s degrees in journalism and Spanish at Butler University.  Hailing from Detroit, Poshadlo is a new Hoosier and believes Indianapolis is aching for more fashion reporting. (see “Hoosier Haute Couture”) She was overwhelmed with the wealth of local story material available when she began her blog, Haute in the Heartland ( and so she launched her monthly column, “IBJ Style.” She also is a member of Fashion Group International. For fun she enjoys playing her violin (especially Rachmaninoff), shopping, cycling (road and mountain), shopping, drinking red wine and … shopping. Poshadlo lives downtown, where she continues stretching the limits of her very tiny closet.

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
