Michela Hancock, 29, put the "class" in "classic," when we "glimpsed" the Harbor East resident at Pazo. Hancock looked like a modern-day Grace Kelly in her lavender merino wool sweater set from Brooks Brothers and lavender, brown and cream tweed tulip skirt from Harold's. The Bozzuto Development Company development associate added brown Brooks Brothers tights, brown leather round-toe Ann Taylor pumps and a silver metallic woven leather Lockheart handbag from Handbags in the City. Her pearl drop earrings came from the Mikimoto store in New York City. Her tank watch was purchased at the Cartier store in D.C. She bought her Roberto Coin necklace at Neiman Marcus, and her Roberto Coin bangle bracelet at the Schwarzschild Jewelers in Richmond. "I focus on quality pieces rather than quantity. I want it convey a professional attitude." Not one for big flashy pieces, Hancock prefers quiet colors and clean lines, with one exception. "I love colored [gem]stones. That's why my engagement ring is tanzanite and diamond. I wanted something different."
