WHY WE LOVE THE LOOK Busy gal Foster, a marketer, interior designer and the creative director for Fashion Network Seattle (fashionnetworkseattle.com), describes her Alexander McQueen–inspired look as “evolutionary,” but two style staples clutter her closet: a vast selection of luxe coats (including her much-loved vintage mink cape and classic trench) and mod, feminine dresses. Foster boldly accessorizes with oversized vintage jewels, colorful patterns and theatrical necklines, offset by one-of-a-kind purses and sky-high boots found on her travels to France and Greece.

THE ENSEMBLE: J. Hickey vintage mink capelet with silk lining and open arm enclosures, and vintage wool dress with black underlay and purple, green and tan print detailing, from Red Light Vintage; antique brass circle chain necklace, Sustalux; silk emerald green purse with ivory beading and bracelet wrist handles, a Sri Lanka find; Tsakiris Mallas two-color leather boots with 3-inch heels and leather wraparound buckle straps, a Greece find. Hair by Melissa Dodd for Gary Manuel Salon, makeup by Tiffany Nash Beauty.
