Five of the North Shore’s chicest women share their style inspirations.

Great style and an enduring love of fashion are trademarks of The Lake County Community Foundation’s executive director.
The best style advice I ever received was… My grandma told me to always carry a good purse. I inherited her collection of vintage Lucite handbags, which I treasure.
My fashion philosophy… is to take an easygoing approach and wear something classic with a burst of fun—a great shoe, perhaps. Simple and straightforward, but then add an eclectic twist.
I never leave the house without… an Hermès or Ferragamo scarf. I love having something fun and colorful around my neck, attached to my briefcase or tucked into the collar of my coat.
My favorite designers are… Burberry and Stella McCartney for clothes, Manolo Blahnik and Rag & Bone for shoes.
My power piece is… a pair of high-heeled Manolo pumps.
