#getnoticed: Connecticut's Most Stylish
The best style flows from the boutique to the street. You've seen them, people who turn heads, who cook up their own style. CTNow has stopped them while we're out and about on the Connecticut streets and asked them, how do you do it? Know someone who should #getnoticed? Tweet us @gotoctnow with that hashtag and we just might find them for a photo.
We met Emily DeFrances at the Go Red for Women luncheon on March 18 at the Connecticut Convention Center: Her spunky style caught our attention at the benefit for the American Heart Association. Naturally, she wore red in honor of the event, and was happy to see such a "bright color in the middle of the snow and rain and ickiness outside." Emily is director of communications for Aetna, the sponsor of the event, which encourages women to learn more about taking charge of their own heart health.
CTNow: Tell me about where you bought this outfit.
Emily: I found this at Lord & Taylor. ... My shoes are actually from Payless, so I'm a bargain shopper. I am a big fan of vintage, consignment, any deal I can get. … It's how you wear it, not what you spend on it. And if you feel comfortable and feel good in it, that's what it's all about.
CTNow: I know you're here in a work capacity, but does this cause mean anything to you personally?
Emily: It's so important for women, when you talk about feeling good and looking good, I think a lot if it is also taking care of yourself, and when you take care of yourself you feel good and look good and it inspires your own personal style. It's all interconnected.
