Colby Ware, For the Baltimore Sun
June 13, 2013
Asylynne Wright, 44, didn't adopt a "Mad Men" style just for the Twilight on the Terrace party at Gertrude's Restaurant at the Baltimore Museum of Art. "I've been dressing like this - mid-century classic - for the last 20 years," says the Mt. Vernon resident. For the party benefiting The GLCCB: The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland, Wright wore a jewel-tone print 9 & Co. cotton sheath from JC Penney to which she'd added a white patent leather skinny belt. Most fashionistas consider blacks and browns their neutrals, but not this Invotex executive assistant. Hers include the nude, black, chartreuse and pink platform Anne Michelle peep-toe ankle strap pumps and the lavender handbag she picked up in London's Camden Market. "Because [they both] go with everything in my wardrobe," she said.
