Glimpsed at the Capital Grille: Cammie Jennings

Versatility a must for grad student and tutor

March 28, 2010|By Sloane Brown | Special to The Baltimore Sun

Cammie Jennings calls her style "trendy, eclectic and comfortable. And versatile." The 24-year-old anthropology graduate student at East Carolina University holds down a job in South Carolina as an SAT prep teacher and K-12 tutor. Versatility is a must for Jennings' wardrobe, which includes many separates. "I'll go to classes in jeans, and then quickly change into slacks or a skirt for work," she said. When we Glimpsed her at the Capital Grille, she was celebrating her acceptance into a teacher certification program at the University of Maryland, College Park.

The look: Black, purple, blue and gray sleeveless turtleneck top. Royal blue and black pencil skirt. Black strappy Maripe slingback high heels. Tan leather Volcom satchel. Clear bead braided cuff bracelet. Stainless steel Fossil watch. Silver dreamcatcher earrings.

Where it came from: She bought the top and skirt at Express. Her shoes are from Rack Room Shoes. She found the handbag at 17th Street Surf Shop in Virginia Beach. She picked up her bracelet at a shop in Colonial Williamsburg. She purchased the watch at Fossil.

All about color: "I like wearing bright colors because they're fun. [My favorites are] greens and pinks. ... I try to get a variety of colors when I put together outfits. ... Color just suits my personality. I'm a fairly bright, bubbly person. ... I don't wear black that often, and if I do, I'm going to wear bright-colored earrings, jewelry or shoes. And I don't wear all black. "

Her shopping habits: "Express is my favorite store. I also like shopping at JCPenney, American Eagle and New York & Company. Online, I also look at the [Web sites for the] same stores. ... And I've recently gotten into zappos.com."

From the ground up: "I usually buy shoes first, then I go shopping for an outfit to go with them. I'll go to Bakers and Rack Room Shoes, where they have 'buy one pair, get half off another.' I love shoes in bright colors and heels. [My current favorites are] a pair of bright pink polka dot open-toe wedges. I actually have a strapless pink dress that's the same color. Or I'll wear them with jeans and a black shirt. My other favorites that I really like right now are a pair of orange patent leather pointy-toe stilettos."
