Kristen Mori, regional account executive at WNWO Channel 24
We spotted some stylish ladies at the Party in the Parking Lot XXV event at the Toledo Club on July 20th, but we thought Kristen's body-con stripes were a standout. The account exec proves ageist fashion rules are meant to be broken.
How do you decide what to wear in the morning?
I think about the meetings I have lined up for the day to determine my style. If I am meeting with a bank, I will choose a conservative suit, but if I am meeting with a small boutique owner, a more casual skirt and top that’s more trendy would work.
What do you think is a style strength in Toledo?
I think Toledo has great boutiques, for the size of our town. I love the boutiques in Perrysburg where I live — Ragazza, Elegant Rags, and Vivian Kate are my go-to stores.
Where do you shop? Local, online, or chain store, and why?
I mostly shop at [those] local boutiques, but I am guilty of buying shoes online from Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus because I just cannot find the brands that I like at the local department stores in town. I miss Jacobson's shoe department!!
What's a trend that makes you shake your head in disbelief, and why?
The neon colors showing right now I can live without and some of the 80s trends that are trying to come back are not meant for someone my age to wear. It was fine when I was in my teens, but I would never consider wearing them now!
