Macon Hardy enjoys fashion, but don't call this business development representative for ETI Professionals Inc. trendy. "Having timeless pieces and looking put-together is important to me. I don't like clothes that will be out of style next season. If you think you're going to look silly in it next year, then don't buy it," says the 23-year-old Federal Hill resident. When we "glimpsed" Hardy at Cinghiale in Inner Harbor East, she looked every one of her "5 feet 9 inches and some change" in her "conservative and classy" style.
