Glimpsed at Fashion Fever: Marcia Leber

Marcia Leber, 60, looked oh-so-Coco (as in fashion legend <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PEHST000406" title="Coco Chanel" href="/topic/arts-culture/coco-chanel-PEHST000406.topic">Coco Chanel</a>) at "Fashion Fever", a fashion-themed fundraiser for Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital. The Salon at Stevenson Village esthetician was giving makeup tips to guests at the event at the Grand Lodge in <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PLGEO100100603060000" title="Hunt Valley" href="/topic/us/maryland/baltimore-county/hunt-valley-PLGEO100100603060000.topic">Hunt Valley</a>, while showing how to dress up a black dress with color in her own "artsy" style. The <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PLGEO100100603120000" title="Pikesville" href="/topic/us/maryland/baltimore-county/pikesville-PLGEO100100603120000.topic">Pikesville</a> resident started with a black jersey Adore sheath from Lori K. that featured a rippled ribbon trim on the skirt. She added a coral cotton knit 14th & Union cardigan she'd bought at Nordstrom Rack. Her black leather pointy-toe Linea Paolo kitten-heel pumps were from Nordstrom. Her multi-strand faux pearl choker is a wardrobe staple, as is her silver cuff. Leber picked up her natural crystal amethyst ring on a trip to the Caribbean, and her deco-style watch was a gift. One of her fashion tricks involves the cute "bow belt." It's actually picot edge black satin ribbon, which she just tied over the cardigan. "I have bags of ribbons that I use as belts. Many belts are big and often too heavy. A ribbon gives a softer, more feminine touch."
