Beth Diem, 33, may not be a interior designer, but as office manager of the Jenkins Baer Associates interior design firm and executive assistant to president Jay Jenkins, having great personal style is a given. Just check out what the White Marsh resident was wearing on a casual day at work: A black ruffle front Mossimo chiffon tunic and orange cotton Mossimo cardigan from Target, over a pair of skinny Vigoss jeans from Loehmann's. Diem punched it up a bit with some silver sequined ballet flats with gray patent leather toes from Charlotte Russe, a Fossil watch with crystal embellished bezel and black acrylic band, and a crystal covered acrylic dome ring that came from Saxon's in Aberdeen. "I wear it all the time." She took it up another notch with her bright purple patent leather T&B Fashion Handbags hobo that was a gift. "I like color and I like comfort. I also like some things to match. I saw the ring this morning and said, I have the perfect pair of shoes to go with that." Diem knows to how to shop for her "trendy" style on a budget, but she makes one exception to her rule. "I love jeans. I love a good, nice, expensive jean. That's where I spend my money."
