COLBY WARE, BALTIMORE SUN
May 5, 2011
It's work to find work, especially when first impressions matter. Judith Munroe, 40, certainly impressed us when we "glimpsed" the Randallstown resident in her "sophisticated" style right after a job interview in the Inner Harbor. Munroe was wearing a lavender ribbed cotton turtleneck she'd gotten at Walmart with a navy, beige and white plaid straight skirt from Montgomery Ward. Her gray heather cable knit sweater came from Wet Seal. She found her brown flat Naturalizer boots at SRI Shoe Warehouse, which she paired with black sheers. Hanging on a chain around her neck was a gold pendant of the face of Christ and half of a best friend charm, the other half of which she'd given her best friend. She bought her Dooney & Burke tan canvas tote at Macy's, her iridescent brown headband at CVS, her gold hoop earrings and cool tortoise shell banded Relic big watch at Kohl's and her crystal-studded tortoise shell sunglasses were a gift. Munroe has a great fashion philosophy about combining colors. "I tell my daughter, Christen , to look at nature. If it's happening outside in nature, it's okay to put [those colors] together. It's gray outside and there's brown dirt on the ground. So, gray and brown can go together. Some colors you wouldn't think can go together. It puts things in a different perspective."
