Amber Brandon, 20, is known as one of the fashionistas at MECU's headquarters, where she works as a teller. We heartily agreed when we "glimpsed" the Middle River resident in her "urban and trendy" style. She wore a strapless brown, white and black Rainbow maxi dress to which she'd added a brown and black wide stretch number from her belt collection and a taupe cotton cardigan with puffed three-quarter sleeves from Charlotte Russe. Brandon bought her brown strappy platform stiletto Anne Michelle sandals at Burlington Coat Factory. She found the long wood and glass bead necklace that she looped twice around her neck at Wet Seal. Her handmade feather-tipped duster earrings with wood and amber beads came from Laila Rowe. Her mustard-colored Bijoux Terner tote came from her grandmother. "She was going to give it to Goodwill, and I said, give it to me." Among some of Brandon's fashion faves: "I love prints -- animal prints, especially leopard. And feathers. Peacock is my favorite."
