As the co-owner and buyer for Essentials By Panache, Vanessa Fava Pivec is used to having a eclectic eye when it comes to fashion. The 43-year-old Towson resident describes her personal sense of style as "edgy, classic" and "basically all over the board." She added: "I love to mix everything up." When we glimpsed her at Green Spring Station, Pivec was wearing an outfit comprised of clothes from her store, including a Nicole Miller blouse and velvet leggings, Alexis Bittar necklace and earrings, and a fringe leather clutch by Kafe. She paired the ensemble with a comfortable pair of Claudia Ciuti flats. Pivec said the key to great style is "the willingness to constantly change with the times." She added: "Fashion is ever changing."
