We weren't surprised when Karla Pattur Smelkinson told us that she was a fan of colorful, fun clothing. When we spotted the jewelry designer at Maryland Center of Fashion Design, we loved her patterned dress by Tart, which she purchased at Fresh! Boutique. She paired it with a brown sandal wedge from Rockport, a pair of earrings, which were given to her from her grandmother in India. Her Keggy belt broke up the pattern of the dress. Her crisp white Michelle watch from the famed shopping district in South Beach, Florida was another trendy piece. Her Chloe purse from Nordstrom completed the look. "The key to great style is to be authentic and fun," the Cockeysville resident said.
