Fashion is just one of life's adventures for Sarah Pearce-Batten. The 33-year-old Roland Park resident likes to ride and fox hunt when she's not on the job as a Legg Mason investment counsel portfolio assistant. Her risk-taking fashion style often involves something a little unconventional. "Like pairing my All Saints leather biker jacket with a rather conservative sheath dress and a pair of Sam Edelman pumps [that] have silver spikes coming out of them," she says. For "High Tide on the Harbor," a fundraiser for the Living Classrooms Foundation, Pearce-Batten dove into a nautical adventure, featuring a certain obsession she shares with any pirate worth his swashbuckle: "Shipwreck coin [jewelry] with precious or semi-precious stones that is really well done; that's my treasure."
