Kate Sims, brand manager at Avanti
She proved she's a pro at day-to-night dressing with
a BCBG Max Azria top and skirt, a Kitchen Sink Bag necklace, and Nine West shoes.
And her short, sassy haircut
had us contemplating a new chop.
She professed her love for
off-kilter details and clothing that moves. "I treasure breathable fabrics."
She is the best kind of pack rat:
a girl who keeps her mom's vintage clothes. Her favorite finds from days gone by are an old bow tie and a floor-length black dress from the '80s.

Jenn DelloRusso, salon receptionist
She pulled out the hot pink
to support the breast-cancer fundraiser. Her Lilly Pulitzer dress and white wedges brought a little Nantucket to Newbury.
Her stack of bracelets
- "for warding off evil," she says - were a funky counterpoint to her preppy ensemble. They're also more indicative of her everyday, colder-weather look: lots of black basics and a couple of standout accessories.
Her favorite shoes are
black Louboutins, a staple in her wardrobe, but right now she's eyeing a glitter-encrusted pair with chunky heels.

DeAnna Pellecchia, co-artistic director at Kairos Dance Theatre
We spotted her across the salon
and had to find out where she bought that striking orange dress. Turns out, it was a vintage find from Moxie, a North Shore consignment shop.
She paired it with
a vintage Ferragamo belt, gold Alexis Bittar bangles, metallic Guess heels, and a gold Hobo bag.
She described her style by
invoking pop-culture leading ladies: "Carrie Bradshaw meets Audrey Hepburn."
The impeccable fit
and high quality of old clothes - and their nostalgia factor - draw her in. "I like to incorporate them into modern fashion."

Alex Iacobacci, owner of Avanti Salon
We had to snap a photo
of the evening's adorably humble host. He wore sensible-but-stylish footwear, a smart choice for someone who's on his feet all day.
He kept it simple in
white Prada shoes, a crisp button-down shirt, and dark denim.
His whole look was
flawless - laidback cool with a dash of polish - but unsurprisingly, his hair was his best accessory.
