Jessica Hargest, 24, works as a freelance editorial assistant for local publications and as a sales associate at Handbags in the City. When we "glimpsed" the Harbor East resident at Pazo, it was clear she used skills from both to come edit her own personal style, which she describes as "classic, but I also indulge in trends every now and then." Hargest paired a sequined cream Gold Hawk tank from Jean Pool with a pair of lilac skinny Domino jeans from South Moon Under. She added natural raffia Kors by Michael Kors platform sandals and a quilted black leather Rebecca Minkoff bag with gold studding -- both from Handbags in the City. She found her orange, blue, navy and white evil-eye patterned Otrera scarf at gilt.com. Her David Yurman bangle, smoky quartz and silver Lagos earrings and her gold key estate piece pendant, were all purchased at Smyth Jewelers. One of Hargest's fashion rules is to try never to wear exactly the same ensemble twice. "Even if I have a favorite outfit, I always try to throw something new into the mix."
