Colby Ware. For The Baltimore Sun
September 21, 2012
Carole Sibel, 76, is known around Baltimore for a couple of things: being the ultimate "professional volunteer" and having a style that can't be pigeon-holed. It is fearless, and entirely her own. The Stevenson resident took no prisoners when she came to Pikesville's Renaissance Fine Arts and Radcliffe Jewelers for the Art of Giving fashion show. "I look a little tailored today, but I can be avant garde and quirky." Sibel was dressed in a black-and-white striped cotton jersey sheath and black-and-white striped peep-toe pumps, both from White House/Black Market. She found her black crystal necklace on a trip to Hong Kong and her black patent leather Tory Burch clutch at Saks Fifth Avenue. Her black enameled gold art deco earrings were an anniversary gift from her husband, and her stacked bracelets were some from her collection of vintage bakelite. The secret to her style? "I don't shop to buy something in particular. she says. If I see something unique, I buy it."
