Kali Maheridis

Glimpsed at Hunt Valley Towne Centre

July 13, 2008|By Sloane Brown | Sloane Brown,Special to The Sun

If anything could add a little dazzle to a sunny day at Hunt Valley Towne Centre, it's Kali Maheridis in vibrant purple and white. She knows how to add more pop to her outfit with fabulous silver necklaces and a metallic bag to die for. The 40-year-old controller at DLA Piper loves to shop, but she never goes shopping with a mission in mind. "I look for something that catches my eye." That way, this Locust Point resident knows she'll catch ours.

Age: 40

Residence: Locust Point

Job: Controller for DLA Piper

Self-described style : Eclectic

The look: I.N.C. silk tunic. White wide-leg pants. White strappy platform sandals. Pewter snakeskin hobo bag by Botkier. Black sunglasses. Lots of silver: Lois Hill hoop earrings and rings, a Brighton bracelet, an ESQ watch and two Konstantino necklaces.

Where it came from: The top, from Macy's. The pants, White House/Black Market. Shoes, Nine West. The bag, Nordstrom. Sunglasses, Brighton. All of her jewelry came from Smyth Jewelers, except the Brighton bracelet, which was a gift.

Eclectic shopping habits: "I love to shop. I probably shop a couple times a week. I'm not sure if I'm trendy; I'm more focused on what looks good on me, and it varies. One day, I could be dressed this way, and another day I could be dressed in Lilly Pulitzer. There's not a specific store I shop in or style I wear, it's more eclectic. ... I like Towson Town [Center]. I love Columbia mall. And I like Tyson's Corner, because I feel like every store in the world is out there. I always hit Bloomingdales and Macy's. ... [Locally] I like Anthropologie in Towson Town, Macy's, Ann Taylor, Cache."

Her black-and-white world: "I do a lot of black and white, but I try my best to purchase colorful things because I don't want to be stuck in black and white. And I like prints."

Jewelry and handbags are her weakness: "My sister is the manager at Smyth. I go to visit her there once a week. I always tell myself I'm just popping in to say hi to her, but I always leave with something. Whenever I go to Nordstrom - another store I love - I always head first to the handbag section."

Her personal do's and don'ts: "I don't like high-waisted pants. I don't like short shorts. I love wearing dresses and skirts in the summer; skirts that hit the knee or below. I guess I'm more on the conservative side when it comes to that. [I want clothes that are] just comfortable. Except when it comes to shoes. Shoes - I can deal with the discomfort. And I love jewelry."

Never leave home without the bling: "Whether it's earrings, rings, a bracelet. It just has to be something. ... [My favorite] would have to be my Konstantino cross. I wear it every day, and I'm very attached to it. It's symbolic of my religion, Greek Orthodox."
