Nancy Ekelund, 50, showed turquoise isn't just a summer color, as she stepped out for the Art of Giving fashion show at Renaissance Fine Arts and Radcliffe Jewelers in Pikesville. Mason Retail Group principal shimmered in a turquoise and silver print chiffon Nanette Lepore frock that she got at either Saks Fifth Avenue or Nordstrom - she can't remember which. But, the gray suede Cole Haan boots definitely came from Nordstrom. She found her turquoise bag at the Furla store in New York City. Her aquamarine earrings, vintage men's Rolex watch and turquoise colored bracelet were all gifts. She calls her style "classically eclectic and admits she's a "handbag freak." She also loves jewelry - "better costume jewelry, but not fine [jewelry]," she says. There's a reason for that. "My two 8-year-olds love to play with Mom's jewelry and take their friends to see it," she says.
