Betty Jackson-Bromell, 48, works as a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service during the day. That means wearing a uniform and not being able to indulge a personal style she describes as "a little hip, a little trendy." "When I'm off, I really want to do it up," she said. "When I get out of that blue uniform, I'm on." In the case of going out for drinks at Wit & Wisdom, that meant a black bordered tan chiffon Mine blouse from Marshalls, with a leopard print camisole peeking through. She balanced them with a black Forever 21 pencil skirt and black tights and added a major pop with leopard print platform Mossimo pumps from Target. She admits animal prints are her signature look. Her tobacco Monet tote was a JC Penney find, and her vintage gold link necklace was a treasure uncovered at Goodwill. Jackson-Bromell borrowed the bronze double disc earrings and black crystal embellished headband from her daughter. She bought her watch at the Donna Karan outlet.
