Kraft: Real style

Silver jewelry adds the right touch

Marcy Evans of Camp Dennison is her family's fashion guru, according to older sister Josie Evans-Phillips.

"I always run outfits past her. ... Even my husband has asked her for ideas before buying me shoes, etc.," says Evans-Phillips.

"The only advice I could ever give her was on clothes, nothing else," says Evans, 27, a State Farm Insurance bank specialist and marketing coordinator. .

Earliest fashion memory: Some of the people I was close to in college (at Wright State) were very much into clothes and dressing ... I liked that they could look nice on a budget.

Fashion philosophy: It's not about the price. It's about the quality of what you buy ... and what you put it with.

Describe your style: Conservative, with a little "Marcy" flavor.

You can be found shopping at: I shop Dillard's. ... A lot of their things are so nice. I watch the clearance racks.

Best bargain: $39.47 total for two dresses and two suits at Dillard's.

Sentimental clothing: A couple of scarves my grandmother gave me.

You can never have enough: Black pants, because you can dress them up or down.

Pet peeve: When people's shoes and purses don't match.

You'd never be caught dead in: A halter top ... not me.

Favorite designers: I don't focus on designers but I do love Jones of New York.

If you had big bucks you'd buy: I have a silver jewelry fetish and I have a shoe problem.

Finishing touch: My silver jewelry.
