#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.

Maria Calo Of Waterbury
We're suckers for sequins here at CTNow, so when we saw Maria Calo's cozy, rosy pink ensemble at the Mohegan Sun Winefest, we just had to get to know her. Maria, who lives in Waterbury, describes herself as a wine drinker and foodie, but during the work week she's a yogi, holistic health counselor, reiki master and dental hygienist.
Maria: I like soft but fun and comfortable, so that's always my goal when I get dressed. So Urban Outfitters, Marshalls, and expensive boots. I always spend a lot of money on one piece... Usually it's my shoes. They're a statement piece. You can always change up an outfit with them. You dress it up, dress it down... They're the piece that accents whatever it is that you're wearing.
CTNow: What brand are your shoes?
CTNow: Can I ask how much you spent on them?
Maria: Probably more than should... $300.
CTNow:But you get a lot of wear out of them, right?
Maria:All the time. Summer, winter, fall, I'm always in boots.
CTNow:How does your unique style play into the really things you do for work?
Maria: I don't like to take anything too serious, and I think that comes out in the things I wear. It's playful. I don't like to be constricted, especially being a yogi, but that plays into my everyday wear, too. Just be free and fun and different. You know, it doesn't have to be the same as everybody else. Just putting piece together that kind of catch your eye and make you feel good!
