Megan Walburn, 26, skipped the flip-flops to bid summer a fashionable farewell. The WJZ-TV news executive producer showed a talent for finding ¿ and creatively using ¿ less expensive ways to produce a sleek, high-end look. The Brewers Hill resident says she's finding her current style sense is swayed by the "Mad Men" DVDs she's been going through these days, particularly when it comes to fall ensembles. "I have a neutral-colored leopard pencil skirt that's not too over the top for work. ... There's a [black-and-white] houndstooth sweater that I'm looking forward to wearing with a tomato-colored pencil skirt." HER STYLE: "Vintage classic." HER OUTFIT: Navy, orange and fuchsia print Donna Morgan jersey dress from Nordstrom. Gold and navy tassel earrings that "I got for $7 on clearance at Target." Nude leather Charles David wedge sandals from endless.com. Chunky gold necklace from Boston Proper that she's wrapped twice as a bracelet. Black leather zipper Shiraleah wristlet from Poppy & Stella. FASHION PASSION: "Loehmann's; I spend a lot of time there. It's a fun place to find higher-end things that are a little different, [instead of] going to a place in the mall and getting something everyone might be wearing. It's higher-end and less money." WHAT'S SHE'S READING: "Those big fashion phonebooks of Vogue and In Style. ... 'Clara and Mr. Tiffany' [by Susan Vreeland] is the book I just finished. It's based on a true story about woman who designed for Tiffany ... during the Chicago World's Fair. You know the thing about Tiffany lamps? They were all designed by women. This is their untold story." SHE CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT: "Twitter, because more and more in my professional life, it's become the most important tool when you work in news."
