Inge Hissa stepped outside her comfort zone for the St. John Properties Grand Prix of Baltimore party, with the help of her friend and stylist, Christianna Harding. "I'm usually corporate conservative. I worked for IBM for years," says the CA Technologies IT professional. "But Christianna helped me step out of my comfort zone with something that was [party] and race appropriate." The Severna Park resident liked the fuchsia, red, brown, black, white and tan checked Banana Republic tunic because it reminded her of a racing flag. The tie-collar top tied in with a pair of orange Bermudas from the Michael Kors store, and fuchsia, orange and tan patent wedge sandals from the Nine West store. Hissa picked up her red enamel Monet bangle at Macy's and her fuchsia leather tote in Germany. Her white Swiss Legend watch was a gift. When it comes to fashion faves, she loves shoes, but only if they have one particular feature. "I really like the ones that are leather-lined. If they have a man-made lining, they won't stretch and give. And they won't be comfortable."
