Never let it be said that Ayana Lugo, 36, lets function get in the way of form when it comes to her fashion. The downtown Baltimore resident describes her personal style as "impractically chic." "I have the most ridiculous jewelry, shoe and bag collection. I never think about how something's going to play out when I buy it. I just throw things together; crazy colors, crazy designs -- things that do good to my eyes." What looks good to the eyes of this White Star Sales director of sales also looked good to ours when we "glimpsed" her at the Ruth Shaw Art of Giving fashion show at Renaissance Fine Arts, benefiting the Baltimore School for the Arts and Kennedy Krieger Institute. Lugo was smashing in a zebra-print one-sleeved Bebe dress to which she'd added her leopard-print platform pumps from Aldo. She bought her black bead cuff bracelet and big black enamel floral drop earrings at Zelda Zen. She picked up her handbag at the Louis Vuitton store in Las Vegas.
