Deb Bidlack, 34, likes a look that can take her from work to play in style, as when she stopped in at V-NO Wine Bar in Fells Point. The Kadmon Pharmaceuticals area business manager was wearing a cobalt Max and Cleo jersey dress with a double-cut-out neckline and drawstring waist, to which she added a pair of nude patent-leather pointy-toe Jimmy Choo pumps she picked up in San Francisco. That's also where she found her brown Louis Vuitton tote. "I go out to San Francisco once a year for work. So I love to shop there." Her other accessories are what's most important to the Canton resident. "My mother passed away in September of last year. So I like to wear her jewelry." That would include the brushed gold ball drop earrings and her tanzanite and diamond ring, which she now always wears. Bidlack says she tries to go for a "modern elegance," in keeping with her style icons: Katie Holmes, Princess Diana and Kate Middleton. She laughingly tells of how that leads some folks to the wrong impression. "One of my friends once told me, you look like you're high maintenance. But you're not."
