COLBY WARE, BALTIMORE SUN
February 15, 2012
Carrie Dudley, 40, often goes up to New York City for clients in her job as vice president/GKV Reach director for the GKV advertising/marketing agency. That's where she found many of the pieces she's wearing at the agency offices in South Baltimore, in a style she describes as "city chic/classic ... I try to bring a little of New York City to Maryland." Both her color block sweater and front-pleated gray wool skirt came from the Espirit store in SoHo. All of her jewelry -- bangles, stackable rings and watch -- came from the Pandora store there. The Federal Hill resident purchased her black leather tote at the Kenneth Cole outlet. Her textured tights -- in this case, gray cable knit from J. Crew -- and her black high-heeled Calvin Klein Mary Janes with a woven leather heel from shopstyle.com are part of her signature look. "I like to mix tights and skirt patterns to change up a look. And I like to wear at least a 4-inch heel; anything that gives me height, because I'm only 5-feet tall."
