As hostess of this year's Maryland Zoo's Zootini party, Dot Rosenberg, 74, showed off what she dubs her "modern ecletic" style, while adhering to the party's purple, black and white theme. The Stevenson resident, who says she's a "CEO housewife," sported a Nicole Miller dress that had a geometric print boasting two shades of purple along with black and white. "I bought it for [my husband] Henry's 80th birthday four years ago," she said. "I went shopping in my closet for tonight and this was it." Rosenberg added carved shell chandelier earrings from Nordstrom, a large amethyst ring from Radcliffe Jewelers, gold and cork Alfani wedge sandals from Bloomingdale's and an antique watch pendant. "I just got [the pendant] from my son and daughter-in-law for Mother's Day, and I just love it," she said, adding, "I try to be fun and stylish up to a fashion. I am 75, almost. I just like to look pretty for Henry."
