Glimpsed! In Canton

Bronwyn Legette

May 25, 2008|By Sloane Brown | Sloane Brown,Special to the Sun

WHO KNEW THERE was a cache of fashionistas tucked up on the third floor of the Can Company in Canton? It makes sense, when you consider all the creative minds behind the technology start-ups headquartered there at the Emerging Technologies Centers. EntreQuest account executive Bronwyn LeGette is just one great example. She knows fashion, and herself. She stays away from black "because it's too stark for me," preferring browns, blues and variations of white. And then there's her favorite color. "If you talk to anyone about me, you'll hear that orange is my signature color. Love, love, love orange."

Age: 39

Residence: Downtown Baltimore

Job: EntreQuest account executive

Self-described style: "An even mix of classic and trendy"

The look: Light blue linen cable knit v-neck sweater. Trouser style jeans, with a Pucci silk scarf worn as a belt. White boucle spring coat. Baby blue suede and tan leather Louis Vuitton espadrilles. Tory Burch orange patent and straw clutch handbag. Diamond pendant, engagement and wedding ring and diamond stud earrings.

Where it's from: The sweater and jeans are from J. Crew. She found the scarf at Nordstrom. The coat is a Banana Republic purchase. The shoes came from a store in Palm Beach, Fla. And the handbag she ordered online. Her jewelry are all from Radcliffe Jewelers -- gifts from her husband, Brian LeGette.

Born to shop: "Always. I like to shop always. Isn't that kind of our biology? We were put on this earth to gather."

Cyber shopping: "I do a majority of my shopping online. I'm signed up with a couple of Web sites that send me [notices] when they have new arrivals. Louis Vuitton, Tory Burch, Nanette Lapore. That's one of the ways I do go shopping. I'll also head up to Towson Town [Center]. Anthropologie is one of my favorites because you'll find a lot of unique designers [there] you wouldn't find anywhere else. ... If I really need to find something specific, I'll head down to Tyson's [Corner]. I was in sales for 13 years for Herman Miller. So, once a year I'd go to Chicago for a trade show, and go shopping there."

Current, chic, but not over her peak: "I'm getting to the point to where I have to be conscious of what's age-appropriate or not. Even though [something] might be cute, I'm walking that fine line. ... I used to wear cute mini skirts. I've never worn anything that was too revealing. But I think I have to stay away from things that are too trendy for my age."
