Gabrielle Waterman, Glimpsed at Ocean City Boardwalk( Karl Merton Ferron, Baltimore Sun / May 21, 2009 )
Gabrielle Waterman dresses to impress, and she succeeds. "I always have to be color-coordinated. I like to look appropriate, elegant and classy at the same time," she said. Waterman, 21, lives in Closter, N.J., but was visiting Ocean City for the first time Memorial Day weekend. When she was "glimpsed" on the boardwalk, she had just purchased new sunglasses to complete her ensemble of a breezy white sundress and white wedge sandals. "I have to have dresses in the summertime, sundresses are my favorite."
The look: White spaghetti-strap, V-neck, knee-length sundress with subtle gold beading along the low neckline. White "cloud-walker" wedge sandals "for a little bit of height." A small brown and gold wristlet. Large-frame brown sunglasses.
Where it came from: The dress comes from Dillard's. The sandals were purchased at The Avenue. She got the wristlet from Coach. The sunglasses were purchased at a shop on the boardwalk.
Self-described style: "I'm not crazy into fashion, but when I shop I make sure everything looks good. Sometimes I go for the name-brands, like Mecca, Rocawear, Baby Phat. As long as it looks good."
Where she shops: "I love Old Navy, Forever 21 and Against All Odds. I'd say I go about twice a month and I just browse all over."
Some of her favorite things: "I always have to wear earrings. I love jeans. In the summer I like to wear tank tops and short jeans to show a little leg. I'm originally from California, I don't want to be all covered up in the summer."
