For Pam Malester, who says she is "60 plus," what to wear to the 40th anniversary party of Ruth Shaw was a no-brainer. It had to be something the retired U.S. Department of Health & Human Services deputy director of civil rights had purchased at the Village of Cross Keys designer clothing boutique - a white on black polka dot Emmanuel Ungaro silk dress from the 1980s. I love fashion, and I love dresses. Ungaro fabrics are so beautiful that I couldn't throw them away." The Cross Keys resident added a double strand of pearls and pearl cuff her husband bought her in Hong Kong, a black snake and alligator Prada handbag she picked up in Milan, Italy, Sergio Rossi black pointy-toe pumps and pearl stud earrings from Tiffany & Co. Malester says her style is "classic" all the way. "I love quality fashion. I don't mind trends, but not trendy."
