Monica Baker, 41, lived up to the theme of the Havana Club's Salsa Night Valentine's Day: Lady in Red. The Medfield resident was red-hot in scarlet Puzzle jeans from ideeli.com, a white sequined Express tank and a white cotton Gap boyfriend jacket. The Group Benefits Services sales coordinator found her nude pointy toe BCBG pumps at Marshalls, her leopard print raffia envelope clutch at Laila Rowe, and her gold hoop earrings at New York & Co. She said she's had her red Gucci bracelet watch for 20 years. Baker said she loves lots of color in what she calls her "trendy" style. "But, I neutralize it somehow," she said. She checks out fashion blogs like jseverydayfashion.com and pennypincherfashion.com to get outfit ideas. Baker is currently loving colored skinny jeans, as well as leopard prints. "I feel like leopard is the new neutral," she said.
