Seen here wearing a 1940s-inspired Carolina Herrera cocktail dress with vintage jewelry from Paris in Royal Oak.

Occupation:

Assistant Dean of Students, Oakland University

Shopping:

“I collect fashion like most people collect art. I shop everywhere, from vintage shops to Somerset Collection. Right now, I’m into custom clothing from Marsha’s in Royal Oak.”

Personal style:

“I still wear a cashmere cardigan that I got from Hudson’s 30 years ago. I like classics that can stand the test of time. Black is my favorite color, and I’m really into fabric.”

Favorite designer:

Marsha’s of Royal Oak and Chado Ralph Rucci

Style tip:

Never too much. In my job, I have young women watching me all the time. I have to set an example for them. When I get dressed, that’s what I think about.

Fashion influence:

“My strongest sense of fashion came from my mother, who always had an amazing sense of style and elegance.
