As Maryland's Department of Economic and Business Development's assistant secretary for tourism, film and the arts, Hannah Byron shows she also has an artistic touch when it comes to her personal style. The Greenspring Valley resident attended the "Solstice In The City" party at Cylburn Arboretum (where she is also a board member) in an olive trimmed teal linen Dana Buchman tank from Loehmann's, and a teal, tan and coral print cotton BCBG skirt from Nordstrom. She added a triple-strand necklace made of shell and semi-precious beads -- some in the shapes of animals -- that was a gift from her mother-in-law, red acrylic Alexis Bittar hoop earrings from Panache, and a silver bracelet created by Carl Priolo, which she bought at a jewelry store in Point Reyes, Calif. She finished off her look with a couple of longtime favorites -- a cafe au lait leather Avorio bucket bag with grommets, and beaded cream silk Yellow Box mules. She says her tortoise shell Frederick FekkaiCQ sunglasses are now vintage because she bought them so many years ago...which leads to how Byron describes her style -- "classic with vintage touches." "I prefer the style of vintage. I like the vintage stores in Frederick and Hampden because you'll find things there you won't find anywhere else." Another fashion passion? "I love anything coral. Now it's a hot color, but I've been wearing it for years."
